Alexander Skancke feat. HEwrote – Found My Place
Alexander Skancke makes his debut on Eskimo Recordings with the beautiful and compelling ‘Found My Place’, which will also appear on the forthcoming Green Collection. Deep electronic strings lead the almost melancholic yet balearic melody with luscious pads filling the low end and the infectious vocals from HEwrote flowing throughout for an overall emotive feel. No stranger to the label Vinny Villbass delivers two remixes. His first ‘Tropical Mix’ rolls with intricate percussion, sonic synths and plenty of groove, while his ‘House Mix’ is a deep house delight and one for the dance floor with a playful loop on the vocal and trippy synths. Local Berliner Oskar Offermann rounds off the release perfectly with his remix, adding a raw bass and sharp kick, with the warm synths and FX running throughout, this is another groovy addition for the dance floor.
