Storken’s “Lille Vals” is among those type of infectious and addictive instrumentals that feel like songs without words, pop without divas or perfectly synthesized disco. Being the debut of a young and promising man from Sweden as, it received candid praise by dancers and DJs alike.
Originally “Lille Vals” appeared as the centerpiece of Running Back’s One-swallow-sampler series, it earned its second spring on a dedicated 12inch release. Although still as much fun as the first time around, Storken’s precious little diamond gets a threepart remix treatment to season the dish. His fellow Ajaks offers a stripped down ans mesmerizing take that should make minimalists allergic sufferers of melodies happy. Newcastle’s powerhouse Patrick Topping pulls out one of his tricks to beam it into his own world and brings out all the big elements to make it even – yes – bigger. Finally, Gerd Janson does the opposite and dubs out the highs and lows of the original to meet Augustus Pablo and Daniele Baldelli somewhere uptown.
