Peter Wahlbeck, Arbetsförnedringen 3 Remixes Für Alle [Techstylism Recordings - TRCD01, 2005]
The family is growing and the latest addition is Techstylism Recordings (Aug 2005). A label owned and operated by Electronic Desert co-founder Jan Andersson promises to be a label to keep a lookout for. The first timely release is the CD single “Arbetsförnedringen 3 Remixes Für Alle” and it’s a remix project featuring the famous Swedish actor/stand-up comedian/instigator Peter Wahlbeck. The remixes are all based on the vocals from “Arbetslös” (which literally means unemployed) originally recorded by Mr Wahlbeck. The end-result is three remixes by as many artists covering three aspects of contemporary electronic music. Qualia Systems debut on TR and brings a shuffled and strongly house-influenced exceedingly groovy merry-go-round version. Qualia Systems utilise the very funny vocals in a cunning way. Electronic Desert household name Ludvig Elblaus dubs out completely and does so in an excellent way, massive basslines and even more massive echoes treating the vocals in a hypnotic way. The third remix is signed Smyglyssna and he’s created a two-step fuelled bossa-influenced monster that swings in an almost alarming manner. The potential for the first Techstylism Recordings release is huge and that is true even if you don’t speak a single word of Swedish. Get your hands on a copy of this limited release quickly because they’re not going to last!
