Stone Free Berlin reveal remixes for Joplyn & Florian Kruse’s ‘Hourglass’

Stone Free Berlin reveal a fresh set of remixes for Joplyn & Florian Kruse’s latest collaboration ‘Hourglass’, welcoming mixes from the label’s own Chi Thanh and Florian Kruse himself.

A collaboration between Hamburg native Florian Kruse, whose previous material has welcomed releases via Kompakt, Blaufield Music and Terminal M, and Berlin-based songwriter, musician and vocalist Joplyn, a rising star within electronica and one of Spotify’s highlighted RADAR artists, ‘Hourglass’ showcased a powerful and emotive production from the pairing via Stone Free Berlin. Now, hot on the heels of the original production’s release, November welcomes two new interpretations of the production as Florian Kruse returns to deliver his own club- driven take alongside frequent Booka Shade collaborator, fellow Blaufield Music alumni and Stone Free Berlin head honcho, Chi Thanh.

Combining thumping percussion and hypnotic synths alongside lush strings and intense yet haunting melodies, Florian Kruze’s remix welcomes an up-tempo and dynamic update perfect for the peak-time, whilst Chi Thanh’s own driving and deep take on the production introduces a well-worked balance of suspenseful builds, funky Moog basslines, warping electronics and refined drum arrangements, whilst delayed FX work atop of Joplyn’s entrancing vocals to shape up proceedings in fine style.
