DOTW: Tampopo, Helicopters Got Cameras (tobias. Remix)

Curle Recordings, founded by DJ Fader in 2006, has championed a deep and rolling Belgian counterpart to starker Berlin sound. Building upon their series of split singles by Efdemin, Aki Latvamäki, Mark August, Dub Kult and many more, Curle went on to release Efdemin’s Carry On, Pretend We’re Not In The Room mix CD, give birth to the Métisse and Petite sub-labels, and release tunes from Thomas Brinkmann, Peter Van Hoesen & Donato Dozzy, and Stewart Walker. Not bad for five year’s work. To celebrate their five years of existence, Curle put together the 2xCD So Far (So Good) compilation. The first disc features Fader’s hand-picked tracks, including this week’s download — Tampopo’s “Helicopters Got Cameras” remixed by Tobias Freund — while the second, a data disc, includes mixes by Peter Van Hoesen, Anthony Collins, and Fader himself. The track feels like Tobias is driving a psychedelic locomotive through a mountain tunnel, its dense layers of twinkling, delayed keyboards bobbing in and out of earshot. Our thanks to Curle Recordings for generously making the mind-boggling track available for free for a week.

like always with Curle Rcds and Fader I did not receive any email telling me about this operation. Please go to my personal site and download more free tracks from Tampopo.

Sincerely yours, Tampopo.
