What more can be said about this beauty? “Drift” remixes were featured in DJ sets and compilations including Mo Shic’s February 2003 BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix and paired with the amazing Roel H. remix.
Before joining Private Reality, Japanese producer Satoshi Fumi had already been quietly setting his musical direction. On Frangy, his chunky, funky beats pair old-school piano keys with layers of synth stabs and atmospheric pads.
Spanish duo Clubbervision offers Paz, featuring idyllic sounds that contrast vintage Balearic sensibility with its sharp, raw drums. Madoka elevates the original by adding massive modulations, pulsating effects, and silky vocal bits to his remix.
Standing as Private Reality’s most acclaimed release, “Distant Memories” is somber yet elegant. A pounding foundation prevails under percolating arpeggiation, shimmering strings and silky vocal stabs. Includes a powerful Matthew Dekay remix.
