|2.||"Nopkin" (Edward remix) (8:47)|
Knarf Skipson has been MIA since 2014 but, then again, he isn't one to put out new music on a constant basis. The dude began his journey into house and techno with a string of EPs for the Quintessentials label, before jumping onto Raum...Musik, and then a whole heap of burgeoning labels such as the present DreamAwake imprint. "Nopkin" gets straight to the point thanks to a bouncy, dub-heavy house cut that sounds like a cross between Mood II Swing and the minimal techno coming out of Romania, with the same going for the comparatively moodier flex of "Coolood". On the flip, "Thike" enters the lounge with its more laid-back, jazzy kind of style, but it's Edward's remix of "Nopkin" that gets all the attention; the Giegling regular morphs the original cut into a beautiful little minimal gem with a rough, analogue sort of swagger.
