Premiere: Florian Kruse & Hendrik Burkhard – We Own The Night (John Monkman Remix)
The British beatmaker has recently been enlisted by Noir to help define the new sound of his new NM2 imprint, and his contribution is a marvelously subdued re-work of Florian Kruse and Hendrik Burkhard‘s “We Own The Night.” He lays the grooves on heavily with a driving bassline, accenting it with an eerie, yet full-bodied synth progression that complements the already-shadowy vocals of the original. Given Monkman’s brooding, ethereal approach to his edit, the piece is primed to make its way into sets by the likes of Tale Of Us, Mind Against, and others of the like who specialize in proliferating this sound.
Outside defining his sound in the studio, Monkman’s career has only continued to blow up on the touring end. He was recently announced on the Do LaB lineup for Coachella, and will also be touring the American West Coast in May.
