Felix Laband and Moodymann give Alif Tree the remix treatment

South African wunderkind Felix Laband and Detroits deepest, Moodymann give Alif Tree some remix knowledge on his track 'Forgotten Places'.

''Forgotten Places'' is making use of a Shirly Horn vocal sample. You can hear the respect Alif Tree has for the music he works with. Moodymann's remix stays true to the original, but you'll still know: this is the work of Moodymann. The B-side features a new remix by Alif Tree himself, which shifts ''Forgotten Places'' to a new direction: straight on the floor! Felix Laband approaches ''Forgotten Places'' from a different perspective. Addding a new subtle bassline and the way he works and twists samples, results in a playful but quirky sound.


Felic Laband seems to have really come under the interntional spotlight as a producer/remixer and his 2005 album 'Dark Days Exit' on Compost Records has been well recieved.
