Last fall, Dapayk & Padberg released "Smoke", their most sinister, most atmospheric and most peculiar album to date. Just in time for the upcoming summer season the Berlin-based electronica duo and notable artists from the Mo's Ferry label ask for the dance floor again playing their "Smoke Family Remixes". Back and forth from the floor to the lounge to the floor: After having presented their fourth album in a darker and more reflective tone, singer Eva Padberg and musician / producer Niklas Worgt let the sun shine once again! Dapayk & Padberg asked their "family acts" to remix this album, which is a chamber-electro-mix full of dubstep structures, catchy pop elements, classical strings and intimate singer-songwriter elements. The result is "Smoke Family Remix", an airy, chilly, highly danceable club makeover for the upcoming summer season! Experimental remixes and reworks belong to Dapayk's tradition. After the original versions have been tuned to achieving maximum club compatibility during their live performances, now the official remix collection follows. "I think the basic colour of our last album was a little bit too dark for many listeners. So we now present the remixes with a more accessible touch", says D&P Mastermind Niklas Worgt. On "Smoke Family Remixes" Dapayk & Padberg selected DJs and musicians from the small but fine Mo's Ferry label and asked for a reinterpretation of their last longplayer - with some surprising results. Douglas Greed transformed the dreamy-supernatural "Dance In Your Flame" into a flowing, slightly rough, but also light ambient track. The dub / techhouse piece "Gingembre" got a treatment by Sebastian Russell with a new melody and new sampling elements. The orchestral "Silent Fireworks" wears in Marek Hemmann's remix a groovy club outfit. "We are extremely pleased to work with all these artists and to have them on our album", Niklas Worgt continues. "They all represent the signature sound of Mo's Ferry, which we intend to expand this year even further. A sound, somewhere between techhouse and rather more experimental stuff. It was very exciting for us to see how other artists interpret and modify our tracks. Eva and I were sometimes extremely surprised in what direction the originals were taken. There are ideas we would never have dreamt of. But that's the point eventually: To emphasize new and different facets. It's all about interaction with others, to be inspired and to collect new influences. It is simply an incredibly great thing to see how for example Darlyn Vlys made a true club hammer remix out of a melancholic original track like 'No Words'!" So much is revealed: This autumn there will be a sequel to "Smoke - Remixes"!
