The Dance Remixed part 1
The Dance is a rare and precious project for Kontra-Musik, run by label boss Ulf Eriksson and Sebastian Mullaert (aka Minilogue). The two friends have been touring the world together for quite some time now – Sebastian with his synths and machines and Ulf with his bursting record bag. It’s the fusion that makes The Dance such a great experience; the fusion of different techniques and temperaments. Every performance is unique, building upon the connection between Sebastian’s live improvisations, Ulf’s simultaneous selection and the moving bodies on the dancefloor. Because ultimately, it’s The Dance that really matters: the sacred link between the hands of the few with the feet of the many.
The hyper-hypnotic beats and melodies of Sebastian Mullaert’s haven’t just captured the minds and feet of those who have entered The Dance, they’ve also inspired many fellow artists. On The Dance Remixed 1 & 2, Kontra-Musik and Ulf Eriksson has decided to present a few impressive and diverse interpretations of Sebastian’s work, as well as a couple of re-arrangements by Sebastian himself as Wa Wu We.
The Dance Remixed 1 features an amazing Joey Anderson track that sounds like Vangelis on a jackin’ acid trip, as well as a sinister Markus Suckut remix that brings his own no-nonsense techno label SCKT to mind, but still manages to retain the entrancing qualities of the original track. You’ll also find two exquisitely stripped back versions from Wa Wu We, focusing on the bare necessities without losing an inch of the musicality and magnetism of the original tracks.
Kontra-Musik is an electronic music label that celebrates diversity, personality and art. Started in 2006 by Ulf Eriksson the label has today become and important antagonist on the international scene. Kontra-Musik is an independent label free as can be. The label tries not to follow trends or fashion to avoid becoming the short-lived product of the most recent hype.
Kontra-Musik intends to show different angels of perspective, not to convert you to a new Religion or Ideology.
Here you can book parts of the ever-growing Kontra-Musik roster. We also work with a selection of artist out side of the label, artists we believe in and who match our philosophy of diversity, personality and musical freedom. Our touring roster are at the moment: Arpanet, Ikonika, Kara-Lis Coverdale, Korridor, Mokira, TM404, Olle Bergkvist, Rivet, rRoxymore, Sebastian Mullaert, Sebastian Mullaert & Ulf Eriksson, TM404, Ulf Eriksson
Store (will open soon)
This is where you buy your kontra music to support the label and its artists to the fullest. No middle hands erasing all the profit. Still the main idea of having our own shop is to make back stock available and fight the stressed news obsession of today’s industry. We believe we release music that last over time. And therefore want to make them available over time. This shop is a movement against the hurried Zeitgeist. A movement against the grain.
