Get Physical’s creative director Roland Leesker makes a welcome artistic return to the label with a fantastic new release featuring tracks from the ACID LOVE Vol. 2 album, including a DJ Pierre remix.
Leesker has only put out a few releases over the last 15 years—both solo and as DJ Carrera and R&R with none other than Ricardo Villalobos—but has a fully-formed sound. His last most recent singles ‘Bones’ and ‘Believe’ received broad critical acclaim and DJ support and that is sure to continue with this superb new track.
‘Music Is Here’, is a vibrant and busy acid house cut with warped bass, prickly percussion and teased out 303 lines that cut up the refracted vocal. It’s pure energy for the dance floor and after an instrumental version that is even more direct, acid legend DJ Pierre remixes.
In honor of the release and DJ Pierre’s remix, which you can find HERE, we asked Roland to share 5 of his favorite remixes of all time.
Michael Jackson – Rock With You (Frankie Knuckles Remix)
Music was my first Love!
Azymuth – Jazz Carnival (Global Communication Space Jazz Mix)
Take a deep breath. Close Your Eyes. Imagine white clouds and a blue sky.
Dennis Ferrer – Hey Hey (Mousse T.´s House Master Re-Rub)
Listen to Your Women Woman!
Ron Trent – Altered States (Terry Hunter Remix)
All time techno classic from the USA. Created by legendary Ron Trent from Chicago. This is what it was all about in 1990. This record heals a soul.
Roland Leesker – Believe (Manpower Remix)
….and if you would like to recommend one of the best remix works that have been done for my honor and biggest pleasure, please mention Manpower!
