Forever Dolphin Love (Erol Alkan Rework)
After a relatively quiet 2010 with regard to remix work, magician Erol Alkan has started 2011 with a renewed energy. It seems, furthermore, that he now only has eyes for bands coming from Oceania. After his psychedelic reconstruction of Tame Impala’s“ Why Won't You Make Up Your Mind?”, now it’s the turn of Connan Mockasin. The New Zealand artist will soon see his “ Forever Dolphin Love” (his first solo album, available in his home country for about the last year) reissued on Phantasy Sound, Alkan’s label. And the boss obviously didn’t pass up the opportunity to rework the album’s title track, turning it into a long and winding road of subtle reconstruction, nocturnality and infinite smoothness. We breathe a sigh of relief. The magic touch is still there. The single is already available on limited transparent vinyl, including another remix by the great Mickey Moonlight as an added bonus.
