Few labels foster a roster that runs the gamut from pure ambient to club-ready productions like Anjunadeep. Croquet Club manages to combine the two into a compelling new reproduction on his remix of boerd‘s “Void.”
While boerd’s original skews towards ambient, Croquet Club infuses his remix with a club appeal. He maintains much of the original’s clever vocal productions, but recombines the swirling layers into a midtempo production with crisp, snappy percussion and thick basses. Adroit sound design adds another layer of demure tension to the track that culminates in clever reimagining that is equally indebted to both boerd and Croquet Club.

Having joined forces on different projects in the past, Flitz&Suppe and tusken.’s Nomads Void is a soothing symbiosis of the two beatmakers’ M.O’s. Similar to the long-employed trip-hop styles of both the venerable Pretty Lights and Emancipator, Nomads Void is an enthralling odyssey, complete with compelling drumline cadence, and raw, vintage cuts that can’t help but imbue a lo-fi-aesthetic that begs to come in peace.
