Pleasurekraft release ‘Villains,’ features remixes from Green Velvet, Pirupa, and more
In continuation of their pursuit to spotlight producers who remain beneath the mainstream radar and to simultaneously quench the thirst for fresh deep house, Pleasurekraft have returned to with a remix package of their Kraftek Villains Vol. 1. The five-track sampler invites several Kraftek newcomers to revamp a handful of Villains favorites: Stacey Pullen, Pirupa, and Oliver $ offer reworks of “Beginnin,” “Lolita,” and “The Wire,” respectively. These previously hand-selected tracks were originally showcased as the first spotlights for talented and undiscovered producers on the Pleasurekraft radar. Now, the duo looks to continue sharing the wealth by introducing several more recent newcomers for the remix edition. In addition to the Vol. 1 reworks, the package introduces Green Velvet with his own spin on “Unique” alongside leading remix artist Weiss. As a preview to the rest of the remix album, Pleasurekraft has released Weiss’ teasing rendition take on duo’s own “The Most Dangerous Game:” a perfectly balanced rework which stays true to the entrancing bass-snare beat as it weaves through chilling samples and a mischievous flitting melody.
