Sharing a mutual friend in the form of Frankfurt nightclub, The Robert Johnson, Lea Porcelain found a natural fit in Scuba to remix their track Warsaw Street. With his superior knowledge of DJing, producing and releasing music, Hotflush Recording’s Paul Rose (Scuba) turns Lea Porcelain’s ghostly, post punk track into a classy eight-minute foray into blissful techno.
Keeping the unnerving live vocals of the original and punctuating them with drums and spine tingling crescendos, Rose manages to produce an almost unrecognisable version whilst keeping Warsaw Street firmly connected to its atmospheric, illustrious German origin. Lea Porcelain had spent two years recording in Berlin’s Funkhaus Studio; a broadcasting house created under Soviet supervision.
The duo add “From when the first bass kicks in until the last synth fades out – we are proud to have our song Warsaw Street remixed by the one and only Scuba! From England to Berlin – he is famous for playing the best dance floors with the most delicate DJ-sets.”
We have the premiere of the track which will no doubt feature in some of those sets soon.
