Roel Salemink is no stranger to Intec; it thus feels right that his first release of 2020 would land on the storied imprint in the form of Eskes. The eponymous single, a euphoria-inducing melodic cut, was so catchy that the label co-founder himself, Carl Cox, opted to put his own touch on it. The resulting Pure Remix is what we have the pleasure of premiering today.
“Eskes” stands on its own as a club—or should we say, solo rave anthem. Its cheery topline with touches of acid beneath bring to mind carefree, nostalgic moments. Continuing on this tip, Carl Cox changes up the instrumentation, ups the tempo, and adds in arpeggiated, orchestral harmonics to boost the cheer factor further. Piano stabs additionally heighten the nostalgic sentiments conveyed in Salemink’s original. One might agree that Carl’s remix is evocative of his bubbly personality beyond the decks.
