Besides their own music productions, Frost & Wagner have made a name for themselves as talented remixers. Whereas many artists and DJs would consider remixing a very purposive form of music production that aims to make people dance and sweat on the floors, Frost & Wagner see remixing as an art form in its own right. They relish using the input of other artists as a basis for a new song. From there they innovate, expressing their own creativity and offering a different perspective on the original tune. For Frost & Wagner there’s no rule to follow to make a good remix. Freedom of creation is the only thing that really matters.
Remixes starts off with Frost & Wagner’s remix of “Torch of Freedom”. Originally written by Cleveland Watkiss, and rearranged by Matthias Vogt’s jazz band project RE:JAZZ, Frost & Wagner transform it into a wonderful slice of jazz-roots reggae featuring the lovely voice of soul diva Joy Denalane. This is followed by a remix of Eva Be’s “She Walks Alone”, which highlights the sweet vocals of Pegah Ferydoni and gives the song a new intensity.
Their remix of Taxi’s “A Certain Something” highlights the charming voice of singer Jo Laundy, with laid-back drum parts and beautiful strings arrangements. Supporting the male vocalists are remixes of Tosca’s “Superrob”, Ben Westbeech’s “So Good Today”, Kabuki’s “Speed Of Sound” and Jan Delay’s “Klar”. From Deyampert’s “The Sweetest Delusion” to Onejiru’s “We Carry On” and over to Matthias Vogt Trio’s “The Look Into Your Eyes”, Frost & Wagner’s remixes have that compelling, feel-good feeling that makes you want to dance. The crowning glory for Berlin’s reggae duo comes with their soothing, atmospheric remix of “Everything”, from Sonar Kollektiv’s own Clara Hill’s Folkwaves.
Frost & Wagner will show you that remixing can be a wonderful artform, and with Remixes, Best Seven once again serve up eleven fragments of dubby heaven.
