Kolja Gerstenberg “Sand (Move D Remix)”

Just 22 years young, the German procurer of beats Kolja Gerstenberg has a well versed affinity to the glory days of funk, soul, disco, jazz and rock, which far precede his birth. His own productions bring the sonic marriage of these golden-time influences and electronic music – it having resided in Kolja’s blood and tradition, with his dad being the former Afrotrance percussionist that released on the likes of R&S and Harthouse.

Kolja’s forthcoming Sand EP has been blessed with a remix of its title track, by none other than the exalted Move D. In fact, it’s the first remix he’s done after a two year long hiatus! And it – of course – lives up to the hype. Carrying with it much of Kolja’s original in its essence, Mr. Moufang spins his own take on “Sand” by stripping elements down and rebuilding the track – all alongside a distinctive, pitched-down sample (it’s a secret) that keeps in tune with the original’s retrospective swing. Instant good feels.

Catch Kolja Gerstenberg’s Sand EP, dropping on Smile for a While on 11 January 2016. Pre-order it via OYE Records now.
