LF RMX 001
A - Black Patterns (Len Faki Hardspace Mix)
B - Black Patterns (Len Faki Hardspace Tool)
LF RMX arrives as new non-profit platform which will share edits and remixes originally made by Len Faki for playing in his DJ sets. What began as small technical tweaks has since grown into passionate work, the edits eventually becoming an important staple to the special feel and flow of the Figure head’s well-renowned approach to DJing.
The series’ first release features the rework of DJ Bone’s 2016 slammer ‘Black Patterns’, whose heavily rolling nature the Hardspace Mix builds upon. Keeping the oldschool drums’ weighty feel, Len Faki gives his a edit a more compact shell and punchy edge. The centerpiece piano stabs also reign over this version, albeit rising in a glimming, glistening fashion, making it a definite choice for this summer. The Hardspace Tool on the other side steers clear of piano and vocal, rather developing a lively sequence of unmistakenly Len Faki-styled, vigorous percussive permutations.
As this project is very much a matter of the heart, and as much about honoring the orignal artists’ work as it is about sharing the edits with a wider audience, there will be no monetary gain involved. Instead all the proceeds will be donated fully to Straßenkinder e.V., a Berlin organization fighting against child poverty.
