The first package “Overture 1” EP (Ltd.Ed.) offers a glimpse of Compost classics by Beanfield, Marsmobil, A Forest Mighty Black remixed by Roman Flügel, I:Cube, Ripperton, plus an exclusive Ron Deacon track.
Swiss house guru Ripperton is a gem from the underground electronic community who has been carving his own sonic path for over two decades now. He steps up to remix a stunning instant classic “It Does Not Matter How You Are” by Roberto Di Gioia, a musical mastermind behind Marsmobil. Ripperton’s instrumental interpretation of the original impresses upon listeners a spellbinding journey with a sonic magnetism and delicate melancholy. Evocative moods are drawn in by a masterfully crafted intricate arrangements and enthralling synth line that is infused with an hypnotism injected rhythms and endless beautiful melodies.
