Vector Lovers AKA Martin Wheeler, well known for his futuristic innovation, is the subject of 2 excellent remixes and 2 remasters of some of his best electronic tracks. The high quality audio boundaries of Soma are pushed forward once again with the outstanding opening 2 tracks, complimented perfectly by an Andreas Henneberg remix of Genevieve, and a Marquez Ill remix of Melodies and Memory.
The 2010 remaster of Melodies and Memory opens the release, the dreamy synths and solid drums allowing pads to build around them creating a unique ambience for the listener. A huge, slow-moving bass line allows the percussion to advance intricately, as the character flooded vocals fill the track. The track title seems so fitting, the track almost appearing as a memory in the mind of MartinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fans.
Classic single Girl + Robot is also remastered for the EP, and overtakes the bliss of track 1 with a faster paced, exciting intro. The majestically modulated synths almost take us to another world as the track moves through each section with grace and confidence. The track moves yet further beyond our expectations and becomes like a modern day classical arrangement with the main melody completing a beautiful masterpiece.
Andreas Henneberg and Marquez Ill bring us back down to Earth by re-introducing us to the world of techno. Both remixes combine the ambient and dance aspects of Soma amazingly, keeping so many emotions flowing. The forward thinking sounds of Vector Lovers continue to astound and have been exploited in such an ultramodern way, keeping the release feeling fresh, whilst maintaining the labels ongoing originality and excellent quality.
