Kollektiv Turmstrasse presents a beautiful remix package of his last year’s hit tune ‘YAP’, including remixes by Perel, Krystal Klear and gome.
Last year’s hit tune ‘YAP’ returns with a fresh new twist, as Kollektiv Turmstrasse presents three remixes from fellow DJs and producers he personally admires. The ‘YAP’ tune gained a lot of attention when it was originally released, and now it’s back to light up the dancefloor once again.
YAP stands for ‘You Are Perfect,’ and Turmstrasse also launched a vibrant event series under that brand, which he hosted in various cities across Europe, rooted in the core foundations of dance music culture – inclusivity, diversity, open-mindedness, community, and love.
Perel’s remix kicks things off with an uplifting blend of house and techno, giving ‘YAP‘ a refreshing upgrade. According to Perel, “The main theme of YAP feels to me like an emotional wave that goes up and down, like life itself. So, I decided to build my remix using this section as a centrepiece of it. I can’t wait to play this remix in front of a festival crowd – super excited for the release!”
Says Perel “The remix evolves around the melody theme that comes up in the middle of the original – an emotional wave that goes up and down, like life itself. So I took this section as a centrepiece of my remix and built around new elements such as beat, percussions, bass-line and a little synth sequence. Since I personally love uplifting house and techno, I also decided to speed up the original track so it would fit into my sets. I can’t wait to play this remix in front of a festival crowd – super excited for the release!”
Next up, is Krystal Klear, who’s lately releasing one hit after another on Gerd Janson’s Running Back, giving ‘YAP’ a brand-new face with his pumping disco dance sounds. As a true fan by himself, Turmstrasse was thrilled to get Krystal Klear on board for this remix EP, and he did not disappoint.
Kollektiv Turmstrasse also wanted to showcase some fresh blood – and the DJ and producer duo gome is one of his favourite new artists in the house music circuit. Their various releases on Toy Tonics and other labels impressed Turmstrasse a lot – and so did their remix of YAP. The version of gome is rounded off with a strong old-school house bassline and a bouncy, warm groove that’s perfect for the summer season.
Says gome “We felt very honoured when Kollektiv Turmstrasse asked us to remix YAP. We have been big fans of his music since we were young kids discovering the electronic music scene in Germany. Kollektiv Turmstrasse was a name you could not miss. When we sat down in the studio, we tried to give the melancholic yet very driving original a 90s house-inspired twist as the vocals and beats reminded us of this era. We hope you like it.”
The YAP remix EP showcases the versatile, multifaceted profile of Kollektiv Turmstrasse, with influences from house to breaks to techno, and old-school rave to modern electronic sounds, ready to dance the days and nights away this summer.
