Samanta Fox & Snuffo - Klaus You

Renate Schallplatten is the label of 'Salon Zur Wilden Renate', one of Berlin's most infamous clubs out there. Their 'La Paloma' release by Wareika was a real 2011 hit-single among the typical techhouse and deephouse DJ's, but their second single by Samanta Fox & Snuffo is from another galaxy.
The original mix of 'Klaus You' instantly reminds us of the acid house days. It's sound immediately reminds us of tracks by artists like Phuture and Juan Atkins' Cybotron. But leaning on a sound that has been fully developed before doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing, when executed in a proper way. 'Klaus You' is one of those examples that real proper techno can still be alive. It's dark, gritty and the word 'filth' is just written all over it.
On remixing duty is Skatebård. The man behind Digitalo Enterprises. This guy from Norway ever gets things right. He always delivers something unique, while keeping the original vibe as intact as can be. This is one of the reasons why he's so in demand as a remixer and this remix is no exception from that. It's interesting to hear him play with such a creepy track, while keeping it so identical to the original version, it seems that Renate couldn't have made a better choice on remixing duties. Subtle remix, but ace for sure.

Renate Schallplatten is releasing 'Klaus You' on November 11th, so this single should be in your favourite record stores anytime soon. Make sure you're going to get this, because we're telling you, this one has every potential to be a serious classic. Vinyl only, samples below.
