La Fraicheur gets remixed by four Techno activists on a new EP (out now) 

'Self Fulfilling Prophecy Remixes' recasts in vinyl version the Techno esprit of La Fraicheur's original album with four reworks, which condition the dancers to unstoppable footwork as much as they open the listeners ‘minds up.

A prominent figure of the techno Polish sceneVTSS, resident of the forward thinking label / party series Brutaz in Warsaw, leading the path for more inclusive clubbing in the face of local conservatism and homophobia and Berlin RBMA 2018 finalist, she rocks “Eau Troubles” in an “industrial” soundscape, as disturbing as fascinating.

Noncompliant (also known as Dj Shiva), an icon of US techno rave scene of the 80s, today widely supported by the demanding international technosphere (with release on Dark entries or Fidel Two) is animated by the same fury instilled by worldly injustices. Her remix for 'Renegade' is propelled by an unstoppable steamroller of offensive analogic sounds and a weird hi-hat.

On the flipside, Serbian producer Scalameriya (Genesa Records, Perc Trax) takes over 'The Movements' in a chokehold that evokes techno’s struggle against space and bodies. In conclusion, Fritz Windish & Nayan Soukie divert the metronomic kick of 'The New is Not Born Yet', with a good dose of insouciance tinged with psychedelism, classic ingredients of the Berlin set deejays at sunrise. 

 

"This remix is a good example of Lisa Smith's uniquely appealing style of techno: it's dark, bouncy and vibrant all at the same time." Resident Advisor
