Blue Hour Remixed 2
Following up on Remixed 01 from 2015 that featured Answer Code Request, Marcelus and Steffi, the second installation has another batch of producers reworking tracks from Blue Hour’s Introspective and Common Ground EPs in their own inimitable styles. Featuring remixes from Pangaea, Mark Broom, Substance and VC-118A.
A self-released 12” from the man born Luke Standing. Unearthed is as you’d expect from someone who once found shelter under the awning of Ostgut Ton. Both sides of the record bang relentlessly at around the 130-mark, both feature loops of skittering tuned percussion, and both will be a fine addition to any capable DJ’s satchel.

Answer Code Request / Marcelus / Steffi
Blue Hour Remixed 1
Bristol / Berlin producer Blue Hour has been making a big name for himself with a series of heavy productions on his own self-titled imprint. Now he collects three remixes of his material together, from heavyweights like Tresor’s Marcelus and Ostgut Ton’s Steffi and Answer Code Request. Weighty techno set in a printed disco sleeve.
Labelled as a newcomer, Luke Standing - aka Blue Hour - was making waves in the techo world well before this latest project, producing moody techno music in the UK as Furesshu and Esoteric. Taking his craft elsewhere to Berlin via Bristol, ‘Common Ground’ follows where this year’s prominent release ‘Reference 97’ left off. Pressed onto 12” vinyl, ‘Common Ground’ features two percussive driven techno tracks ‘Falling Lines’ and ‘Common Ground’.
While the ambient synths slowly oscillate around you, you find yourself drifting to the tireless beats that Blue Hour likes to pull from his 909 drum computer. Due to its combination of spheric ambient pads and intense beats, Reference 97 is a journey through the progressing soundscapes against which the bass drums on.
