Wareika, Ripperton and Art Bleek are among those reworked on the German label's anniversary collection.
"In a way a connaisseur is nothing but a nerd," label co-founder Alex Flitsch told RA a few years ago. "Which is exactly what we are: Music nerds." Since 2006, the collective nerdiness of Flitsch, his wife Hilary and his former schoolmate Martin Henkel has led to dozens of 12-inches on Connaisseur and its two sub-labels: Connaisseur Superieur and Outils Du Connaisseur. CINQ collects new remixes of old songs from the label, including a rework of Patrick Chardronnet's 2005 hit "Eve By Day" by live house trio Wareika. It will be available digitally and as a triple-vinyl pack, with slight tracklist differences between the two formats: Estroe's "Driven (Distortion Remix 2)" is only on the download, and Himan's remix of "Big Shot" by Brandon Moeller is only on wax. The compilation is due out at the end of March.
