Bobina drops his artist-meets-remix-meets-mix-comp album '#Uplifting’

Bobina - #Uplifting

Bobina - #Uplifting

When is a mix-comp not simply a mix-comp? When is an artist album far from just a.n.other artist album? When is a remix-retrospective not a… well, you get the point! 

Bobina, that Kasparov of the keyboards, that regular Stravinsky of the studio, Tchaikovsky of the turntables and Rachmaninoff of the radiowaves is a man on a mission this month. With summer 2015 all-but ready to have its starting gun fired, he’s set to bring us something comparably ‘#Uplifting’! 

To deliver on its titular promise Bobina has tossed out the long-player rulebook, ripped up the remix album rubric and turned mix-compilation convention on its head. Featuring new, original music from the man himself, ‘#Uplifting’ also sports daisy-fresh and classic remixes of his greatest hits & latest smashes. Equal to that task, he’s drafted in big-name establishment like Aly & Fila and Sean Tyas, as well as plenty from trance’s Class of 2015 (Jorn van Deynhoven, ReOrder, Photographer, Solis & Sean Truby to mention but a few). 

Oh, and forewarned = forearmed: there’s also a kitten. A flying one 

Said ‘Flying Kitten’ arrives promptly in Bobina’s mix in the form of his upcoming single, which starts ‘#Uplifting’s sky-bound trip. Hot on its heels, Aly & Fila go full-surge on the remix, putting their inimitable twist on ‘Invisible Touch’. Fast emerging UK trance duos are in no short supply either. Allen & Envy rephrase last year’s ‘Refuge’, while the once tech-moody ‘Basque The Dog’ becomes something far more main-stage, courtesy of Solis & Sean Truby. Further in, Bobina’s fellow countrymen Abstract Vision pop the hood on ‘Quattro 372’ and swap out its progressive house engine for a far trancier V8. 

Every bit as ‘#Uplifting’ as its instrumentals are the mix-album’s vocal-based cuts… Taking Christian Burns’ spirit-filled voice to even greater levels, Photographer performs the remix equivalent of a full-court press on the Christian Burns vocalled ‘Still In Love’. Evermore elevating grades are likewise brought by Jorn van Deynhoven and Ahmed Romel to the Betsie Larkin-sung ‘You Belong To Me’ and Shahin Badar-voxed ‘Delusional’. Bobina’s own Megadrive variation of the Susana-sung ‘Play With Fire’ and Sean Tyas’ breath-stealer of a revisit to 2007’s ‘Lighthouse’ apply yet more speaker-kick. 

Just to ensure that those final degrees of elevation are delivered on, Bobina works in RAM’s fresh take on’ Out Of Coverage’, the Beatport chart-topping ‘Winter’ remix from Simon O’Shine and ReOrder’s floor-hardy re-creation of ‘Nos Encontramos’. 

Get ready then to get both hands (or all four paws, depending) raised and locked in the upright position - ‘#Uplifting’ in nature, name & intent, it’s a-coming your way this April!
