Cosmic Elements’ 23rd release is the long awaited reworks of Tom Conrad & Andy Compton’s ‘Textures EP’ by none other than German legend Van Bellen.
Balearic chill and sunshine vibes are the order of the day on both of these remixes which showcase the beautiful guitar solos of Andy Compton. First up, Van Bellen’s sublime remix of ‘Okinawa’ is a lush chilled vibe which says sunset at Cafe Del Mar all over it, although it could easily work at any time of day where the sun and a beach are involved. Van Bellen then takes a nu disco versus ethereal chill approach to his remix of ‘Phoenix’, which once again screams Cafe Del Mar. Two masterpieces from a musical master right here.
For those that are unfamiliar, Van Bellen is a legendary German producer and remixer who hit the major heights in the late 90’s and early 00’s with support from Sasha, John Digweed, Paul Oakenfold and many more, featuring on numerous labels such as Sony, EMI, Bedrock and compilations such as Gatecrasher, Global Underground and numerous others, whilst growing up and working alongside the likes of Nalin & Kane, Blank & Jones, Marc Romboy and more.
Track Written, Arranged and Produced by Tom Conrad. Guitar solo by Andy Compton. Remixes by Van Bellen.
