Out Now: Garance - Alice&Suzy EP (Caduceus Empirical)
Caduceus Empirical look to Swiss DJ and producer Garance for an excellent new EP that features two top originals as well as remixes by Ray Kajioka and Beroshima. Garance hails from Geneva and over the course of the last 10 years has built a sterling reputation playing in great locations such as D-Edge (São Paulo), Ritter Butzke & Sisyphos (Berlin) or Montreux Jazz Festival. Since 2013, inspired by richly layered deep house and techno, Garance has been putting out fine remixes and originals. Excellent opener ‘Alice’ is a patient, spiritually infused bit of main room techno. Ray Kajioka (well known for his output on Kanzleramt Music) turns out a remix that is a more stripped back and supple bit of peak time techno that oozes warmth and soul as it rolls deeper and deeper. The other great original is ‘Suzy’ which is slower, more patent and deeper. This one gets re-rubbed by Beroshima, who has released on the likes of Cocoon and Soma and is often played by Berghain DJs Marcel Dettmann & Ben Klock.
