Come To Berlin Mixes

Format: 12"
Label: Monika Enterprise M63
Distribution: Morr Music
Distribution US: Forced Exposure

Ever dedicated to club culture, Barbara Morgensterns label Monika Enterprise never failed to supply the finest remixes around. As a prelude to the new Barbara Morgenstern album, BM (monika64), monika brought out 3 remixes of her politically charged hit Come To Berlin including mixes by Telefon Tel Aviv, The Rice Twins and Chloé as well as an exclusive single edit.

Swedish duo The Rice Twins aka Jesper Engström & Valdemar Gezelius are, along with The Field, part of the new generation of Skandinavian artists on the Kompakt label. There mix lifts off slowly with Barbara Morgenstern’s vocoder distorted voice and swooping melodious synth strings, gradually building up to a hypnotic crescendo. This remix continues the Cologne - Berlin connection and the musical friendship between Kompakt and monika. After all Superpitcher’s remix of Contriva is still an all time favorite.
Telefon Tel Aviv are Charles Cooper and Joshua Eustis. They are on Chicago’s Hefty Records and have previously had remixes on Ghostly International, Peacefrog Records and Shitkatapult. Of all the Come To Berlin mixes Telefon Tel Aviv retain most of the original song structure, yet they still manipulate the song into a highly danceable track making it fully club compatible.
French DJ Chloé has previously remixed the likes of Booka Shade and Junior Boys, and her treatment of Morgenstern’s single is a minimal cut perfect for the dancefloor. She samples the piano and vocals to great effect giving the song a fresh edge. And this terrific 12” ends with an exclusive single mix of the original song Come To Berlin just to remind you what an excellent song this is.

Come To Berlin is without question the poppiest song on Barbara Morgesntern’s 5th album BM. This powerful ballad is a tounge-in-cheek tribute to capital city Berlin and an anthem for tourists at the same time.
