Violet Shift (incl. Mike Schommer Remix)
Rolling into the spring of 2022, Mosaic turns to Berlin based Yorkshireman and co-founder of Tact Recordings, Fletcher, for Mosaic LTDX6 .
Following his impressive “Mechanical Garden” debut LP on Mosaic DTL, ‘Violet Shift’ focuses on Fletcher’s ability to weave magic for the dancefloor with DeepChord’s Mike Schommer adding a contrasting touch of class on the remix.
Title track ‘Violet Shift’ is a trip into the light fantastic: centring around a delicate fusion of deftly programmed beats and continuously shifting filtered chords. Brought together with muted pulses of sub bass and splashes of effects, it’s a masterful exercise in restraint and a true delight with repeat listening.
Taking it the other way, Schommer’s remix focuses on a four to the floor journey: adding tribal elements and tight percussion that inject more urgency into the mix. A tough but fair take, you wouldn’t expect anything less.
Last but not least, the dawn chorus of ‘BOHTS’ eases you into the mood with a trimming of airy optimism and brushy bounce to the beats as warm chords sweep their way through.
