Common Factor - Through

200612"Techno

Three mixes of laid back tech-house from Nick Calingaert, half of Soma act Retroflex and Planet E alum. Calingaert definitely bears some traces of his former mentor’s work here, as layers of percussion, a pseudo-jazzy keyboard riff, and textural synth pads play musical chairs over a throbbing two-note bassline and a few key breakdowns. The stomping Phonique remix strips things down to start, then adds the layers back piece by piece for an altogether more interesting and dynamic track. Holmar Filipsson plays it a bit retro, with a big swinging hi-hat and an accent on the riffs rather than the rhythms. A little something for everyone, then, although nothing that will really stick to your ribs the next day.

Phonique - Gaga

Phonique has brought us a number of classics in recent years, but this is my favorite thus far - there are a number of genre touchstones I could call upon to define it, but this is ultimately a release that moves across stylistic boundaries with ease. Presented in two equally strong versions—an amped-up original and a sleeker Tim Paris remix, “Gaga” is perfect for dancefloors with a psychedelic edge, and dancers who aren’t afraid to mix a little bug-out into their bump-n-grind. It hints at the previous Phonique characteristics—humpy electro without the dirtiness, darkwave disco without any unnecessary clackity-clack—and adds a dimension of rubbery, gelatinous groove.
