DJ Koze – Nices Wölkchen [Robag's Bronky Frumu Rehand]

20 Apr

:: Can’t wait for summer to be coming. And I want it to sound like this.


DJ Koze’s Amygdala (2013) is a landmark of an album, an example of musical perfection, and this makes it all the more tempting for other famous names in electronic music to have a try on the Amygdala tracks of their own.

Nices Wölkchen (the original cut of the track features Apparat Sascha Ring) is remixed by longtime Koze-collaborator and Pampa Records label mate Robag Wruhme. His edit of the track is called Robag’s Bronky Frumu Rehand, it was released on the two-track 12″ vinyl Amygdala Remixes #2, together with a Roman Flügel Remix of the Amygdala title-track.

Amygdala Remixes #2 dropped physically on March 24, 2014 via Pampa. Digital release followed on March 28. You can order your physical copy directly from Pampa or buy digitally via Beatport.
