Russian duo Panorama Channel are back on Biologic Records with ‘Jigsaw Lovers Club’ featuring two remixes from Berlin based Aera. After releasing on Innervisions and John Talabots Hivern Discs last year Aera is well placed to provide 2 stellar remixes.
Panorama Channel debuted on Biologic, the label belonging to Abstraxion and DC Salas, in 2016 with Chloe’s Dream and on this latest EP the pair continue with their ambition of creating emotional and contemporary electronic music.
Atmospheric percussion builds in intensity until the bass drum kicks on the first track, ‘Jigsaw Lovers Club’.The track continues to swell with an undulating synth melody.‘Teacher’ is a straighter dance floor heater, without the swelling emotion of ‘Jigsaw Lovers Club’ the track is able to maintain a hypnotic rolling line until a vocal sample brings in the melody. ‘Jigsaw Lovers Club Aera remix’ has a paired down introduction, drums and percussion reach a small crescendo before breaking down into a minimal and emotive beat.The synth line becomes squelching acid 303’s before abruptly returning to a minimal break. Finally Aera delivers another remix of the same track, he maintains the loopy top lines whilst eliminating the bass.
