Here’s This (Alexander Kowalski Remix)
Released: June 2012
Taken from “Here’s This“
” The 25th release on microCastle sees John Graham returning to the label under his much loved Quivver alias for his first single and a follow up to his Monaque ‘Dos3000‘ remix from July of 2010. He is best known as Quivver, but has invented a host of other monikers, including Space Manoeuvres, Stoneproof, Skanna and Tilt, each representing a different shade of his eclectic production sound and each giving an idea of his true versatility.
John first came to our attention all the back in 1994 when we heard his ‘Twist & Shout‘ for the first time, a vibrant and electric style of energetic house that was fresh and undeniably cool that still sounds great now 20 years later. Over the last several years John has further established himself as one electronic music’s most versatile producers. With releases on Bedrock, YoshiToshi and Toolroom. As a vocalist John has collaborated and written electrifying songs for the likes of Hybrid, Planet Funk and also Darren Emerson‘s exciting new project ‘The Low Highs‘. As a DJ, John has traveled the world and performed every conceivable hot spot from Glastonbury,UK to Pacha, Buenos Aires to Asia to his enviable residency at the notable Twilo, NYC to Avalon, L.A.
Quivver’s first single for microCastle is entitled “Here’s This‘ and it comes with remixes from Marc Marzenit and Alexander Kowalski. John’s original mix is most certainly one of his most infectious grooves to date; unmistakably Quivver with a momentous roll and gargantuan swing that should have your entire dance floor moving in unison. Complete with an eerie vocal stab, dark grungy chords and airy, incandescent pads ‘Here’s This’ is one of John’s most accomplished progressive techno crossover tracks to date.
Spanish producer Marc Marzenit returns to microCastle for his second appearance and provides the first remix on the package. Marc’s first appearance on microCastle was his remix of Monaque’s ‘ID’ which turned out to be one of his most sought after productions in 2011 and his ‘Here’s This’ interpretation looks set for a similar fortune in 2012. Marc’s delivered a contemporary monster of a mix with waves of clattering drums and pulsating bass tones which form one of the Spanish producer’s most devastating grooves to date. Metallic coated keys, big menacing sweeps and gyrating vocal swirls create an undeniably hypnotic environment that is utterly intoxicating.
The final interpretation on the package is provided by the Berlin based techno DJ / Producer / Live Act Alexander Kowalski. His DJ sets and live performances have been making waves throughout the electronic music underground for their tough techno sensibilities, deep harmonies. Alexander has been awarded the titles of best producer, best live act and has been a two-time nominee for the German dance award. His Damage Music imprint has been one of our favourite labels over the last two years as well so we are thrilled have him on this project. Alexander’s ‘Here’s This’ interpretation might be his darkest and most menacing studio creation to date. Rolling beats, dark electronics, vocal gates and a grinding momentous groove all combine for an unrivalled apocalyptic vibe that is not for the faint of heart! “
