Amine K - Hyperion
SOUV088

Amine K is a beloved Moroccan producer who has been making enormous waves with his fresh take on below-ground dance music. His sound, equally inspired by his blistering sunrise DJ sessions at Burning Man as well as being locked in during the darkest debauched warehouse parties in Berlin, has been turning dancefloors inside out. Amine K’s music is full of vibrant energy and creative magic which is fitting for both the sprawling desert landscape and the claustrophobic energy found inside concrete Techno spaces. His newest release, ‘Hyperion’ is easily one of his best, and is a perfect fit for Tiefschwarz’s very own Souvenir imprint.

The original version of ‘Hyperion’ is a slow and steady grower. It’s a true sonic trip that effortlessly wraps itself around the listener and tightens its grip with each passing minute. Inspired by an iPhone recording of a snake charmer’s flute during an outing in the Medina of Marrakesh, ‘Hyperion’ emulates the snake charmer’s flute into a twisted synth melody. The melody carefully snakes itself around the track with growing tension while incredibly arranged percussion keeps the tune moving with dynamic energy. ‘Hyperion,’ like the Greek God the track is inspired from, is nothing short of powerful and commanding.

Remixes from Belgian Duo Raw District (Crosstown Rebels, Innervisions, Souvenir) and Berlin’s Mathias Schober (aka Show B of Lossless) provide incredible interpretations of the original take, each with a perspective offering the EP even more diverse power. Raw District’s remix provides an expert level of musical intensity with cleverly placed melodic synth lines guaranteed to put the dancefloor into a captive spell. Mathias Schober takes the tune deep into the rabbit hole with a reduced version designed for the weirdest hours of the after-party. The EP is complete with a ‘Dub Version’ from Mr. Amine himself which simplifies the tune into the most essential groove.
