Today's FACT mix is by German deep house superheroes Âme. It finds the duo of Kristian Beyer and Frank Wiedemann digging deep – and wide – to create a history and genre-hopping excursion that nonetheless keeps its feet firmly on the dancefloor.
Âme first made their name with dazzling singles like ‘Mifune’/'Shiro’ and a self-titled album for Sonar Kollektiv in 2004, but it was with superb remixes for the likes of Roy Ayers, Akabu, Truby Trio and Ferrer & Sydenham (their version outshining the source material in virtually ever case) and with the establishment of their own imprint, Innervisions, co-piloted by Dixon and Schwarz, that they really developed their own voice – leading to 2005′s Rej EP, a bona fide classic. Since then, every Ame 12″ has been an event – last year’s ‘Rose Sselavy’ and its terrific B-side ‘Junggesellenmaschine’ exemplify Beyer and Wiedemann’s mature, elegantly engineered but always impassioned and energetic approach to house music.
