Midfield General – Coatnoise (KiNK Remix) [Skint, 538854655]
Bulgarian techno wizard KiNK is next up to remix Midfield General’s classic ‘Coatnoise,’ hot on the heels of Dance System’s unique version in September.
KiNK is widely recognised as one of the best live acts in electronic music. He is a master of manipulating his hardware and cooking up acid, techno, broken beat and house soundtracks that are as unpredictable as they are expressive. He has released on plenty of vital labels from Running Back to KMS to his own Sofia Records over the last decade. Now he lands on Skint with a remix of a Midfield General tune that appeared on the ‘Generalisation’ album in 1999.
‘Coatnoise’ (KiNK Remix) finds the electronic innovator in peak time mode: this is urgent, strobe-lit and bouncing techno for packed out dance floors. The drums are clipped yet funky, the synths are packed with futurism and soul, and vocal stabs add extra intensity and fire to this most compelling of tracks. As always with KiNK, all sorts of synth details and subtle effects arrive to detail the groove as it continues to surge onwards.
This is a second superb remix of an enduring dance music classic.
