Two masters of intense techno meet on this electrifying tune.
Paula Temple - Berlin (SØS Gunver Ryberg Remix)
Paula Temple has found a kindred spirit in SØS Gunver Ryberg, which is probably why she chose the Danish artist to remix the opening track from her recent album. Both artists move between electrifying techno and brutal industrial noise, sometimes within a single track or transition. Ryberg's remix of "Berlin," taken from May's Edge Of Everything, is more techno than industrial, rolling with plenty of chaos and energy. It's certainly more upbeat than much of what appeared on Entangled, Ryberg's sombre album from early this year.
It's easy to imagine techno's more tasteful DJs—Dettmann, Kraviz, Temple—playing this remix when they find themselves in front of an open-minded crowd. And while the downbeat never locks onto a steady groove, the ticking hi-hats and zapping synths will keep feet stomping. Edge Of Everything, an excellent album, has received the high-quality rework it deserves.
