Ostgut Ton pair Barker & Baumecker are putting down the Breaking Bad boxset for a moment to focus their attentions on a new remix EP.
Barker (better known as Voltek) and Baumecker dropped their first LP for Ostgut Ton earlier this year, and it proved a more delicate affair than you might expect from Berghain’s reliably hard-edged techno imprint, with punchy hardcore sitting neatly alongside furtive electronica and cerebral techno.
As Juno Plus report, the pair will be on a similarly adventurous tip on a forthcoming remix EP. Barker & Baumecker Remixes will collect four edits of material from the Transsektoral LP. Blawan will take on the fizzing ‘Crows’, and Lucretio and Marieu – with whom Blawan collaborates as Parassela – will join forces with Steffi under the moniker Third Side for a new version of ‘Schlang Bang’. Footwork acolyte (and JETS member) Machinedrum will remix ‘No Body’, and unknown quantity Kobosil takes on ‘Silo’.
Barker & Baumecker Remixes will drop on January 28 through Ostgut Ton. The original version of ‘Crows’ is below.
