Voice dark and luminous, but at the same time clear and direct.
Sascha Ring moved from the Harz to Berlin and shortly thereafter became known under the name Apparat. For Swayzak, the co-founder of Shitkatapult created a spherical, blurry reminder of the original of 'Smile and Receive', which from its transfiguring depths continues to open onto flickering high points.
The second reworking comes from an old friend of Swayzak, Londonï¿½s Richard Davis who lives in Berlin. He adorns Cassy's vocals with his typical sleek house sound in which an appropriate dash of pop song can be heard, slightly recalling the electro pop of the 80's.
Lastly, singer Cassy also personally worked on 'Smile and Receive'. In her Beatmix, the Berlin sound can definitely be heard. After stops in Vienna and London, the Brit made it to Berlin where she can now be found regularly behind the decks of the Panoramabar Sunday mornings. Those familiar with her clear, straightforward sets will be reminded of many an afterhour at the bar. Recurring fragments of samples of her voice merge with 808 drum sounds, creating a hypnotizing mix.
