Dapayk & Padberg’s „black beauty“ single was played back and forth in summer 2007. Short after their appendant album attracted great interest even beyond the borders of the clubscene (i.e. Dapayk & Padberg received the Musikexpress StyleAward for „Best Performer Domestic“). One reason is a reorientation, they turned away from the established and over used minimal clubsound of the past years.
Now, the „black beauty rmxs pt.1“ brings together PokerFlat member Guido Schneider on the A-side and Mo’s Ferry label head Dapayk on the flip side. Guido Schneider’s minimal and subtle production skills and his focus on a very functional style do not only reflect on his own releases. With remixes for Steve Bug, Andre Galuzzi, Plastikman and others he made himself a long-time favoured remix producer for the Mo’s Ferry crew. His version of „theiss“ takes the melody parts of the original, replaces the breakbeat by a straight bassdrum/hihat functionalism and pays special attention to a matchless flowing pace. Dapayk reworked one of the album skits called „pantomime horse“. He not only raised the tempo, but instead he developed the theme to a new floor-oriented version. Despite the punching 4/4 bassdrum he keeps on playing with the mainly acoustic drum sounds from the original. HipHop-Minimal-Crossover!
