Len Faki, “Rainbow Delta” (Jerome Sydenham remix) [Ostgut Tonträger]
Sydenham’s remix for half Len Faki’s reigning single energizes the pleasantly undulating original while retaining its understated passion for off-beat rhythms. For a song called “Rainbow Delta” Faki didn’t indulge in too much melodic color, favoring a coursing, almost motorik repetition of its motif, spruced up with sighing swells. Sydenham wrings the rainbow for more varied tones and pushes them upfront to bubble and bounce, though the Manuel Göttsching-praising rhythms are left in tact. “Rainbow Delta” was definitely ear-catching, but Sydenham’s remix is dazzling in a way which makes you wish space travel was well within our reach. Highly recommended.
