Sneaking in under the radar late last year, and far too late for most end of year polls, came one of the most inventive and infectious long players of 2013.
Hamburg heroes Deo & Z-Man’s wildly eclectic and playful neo-classic ‘No Bullshit’ was a riot of ideas, colours, moods and general party-rocking good grooves. Released on the always forward-looking hafendisko label, the album fully deserves this exten- sive, similarly creative remix package.
Totalling 18 tracks, ‘No Bullshit Remixes’ had mana- ged to pull together an enviable line up of producers to rework and reinterpret each of the album’s tracks.
ARTTU provides a typically unhinged neo-electro ver- sion of ‘Chopped Memories’, while Marc Schneider’s remix of ‘Iced Out Space Lazerlights’ riffs on the
outer space groove of the original. Smallville boss Julius Steinhoff delivers signature piece of tightly wound deepness, while Frank Agrario provides a synth boogie-trip take on ‘Slippin’ Into Somethin’.
The breath of styles matches that of the original album – Faded Ranger choose to expand on the wigged out hip-hop chug of Two Blue Bros, while Lee Burton’s ‘Smokeroad’ treatment treads an ambient, smoker’s de- light path towards enlightenment.
Tiger Skin and Alex Dimou both provide exceptional dance floor damagers from the original source materi- al, while Subz&Matik drop two equally killer breaks-in- spired versions of ‘Ms Oberheim’. Erobique and Luca Lozano both take on the single ‘XTC’ – and produce radically different, yet equally interesting results.
Elsewhere, Credit 00, Joney, La Boum Fatale, RatKat, SLG and Deo and Z-Man themselves complete the hu- gely impressive collection – no filler, no bullshit.

Nostalgic,romantic and warm. We met N.O.N. few months ago when he rmxed S.BOYZ’ Namless, it was already all there, the spacious groove, the percussion and the melodic element, enough to get us on our toes. Juliebe has such a pretty melody that you wish it never ends, a perfect late night / early morning tune.
From Argentina to Mexico D.F. Veneno brings his cosmic disco touch to Juliebe. The guitar can easily be the theme of a Tarantino movie.
S.Boyz take the theme to the dance floor, you can play that at peak time, it will work.
Last but not least Mono anubis enhance the melody in an unexpected way, we loved the plunky synth.

What a great night!
It’s always good to see a lot of people smiling and dancing, It’s always good To see a museum converted into a great open air club for a night, it’s always good to see that when music is good people react even if we had 4 very different acts performing and it’s always good when the weather report is bad and looks like you will have to cancel the show but everything runs smooth till the very last track, It’s always good to see that when you believe into something it’s gonna work. A big Thnx to Eleva Festival and S.BoYZ, Italo Brutalo & Funkabit, and all the lovely people we met, Frank Agrario is very prowd of his family, official pictures coming soon.
