Steve Rachmad remixes Cassy & Fred P

Steve Rachmad remixes Cassy & Fred P

Pitch-perfect house is headed for Cassy’s Kwench Records label to kick off 2024 as she collaborates with Fred P and has Steve Rachmad in providing two remixes. Three powerhouses right there and the music is as deep and evocative as music heads would expect.

To fans who snap up his records, Fred P is known to be prolific. He became a label affiliate with Kwench Records from day dot, cutting through on the second release with a remix package of the imprint’s inaugural EP with Cassy and Demuir. He reappeared in 2020 with epic four-tracker Enter the Dancefloor. Dutch veteran Steve Rachmad is also known for keeping the pace. Churning out high-end electronic music that spans techno and house for over 30 years using various aliases, it’s his first appearance on the imprint.

I’m so proud of this release. We’re all close in an artistic way – sonically, it works so well. With timing, it’s been the perfect storm,” Cassy enthuses. “Fred and I have wanted to collaborate for years. We took our time with the record, especially with the mixing process – we wanted it to sound quite unlike anything we’ve put out separately. It’s bombastic goodness. Steve’s brought two incredible rerubs – the first one is stripped back, more in keeping in with the original’s groove. I was at Amsterdam airport when I first listened to the second remix, hearing more of his techno influences. I was actually moved to tears. It’s stunning.”

I’m grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with Cassy and continue the narrative that we’ve been developing on Kwench. The sound speaks to what I love most about dance music and what it can be, with amazing people working together in service to the music. I hope everyone enjoys this EP and finds the possibilities that suit their personal fantasy.” – Fred P

“On remix 1, my goal was to highlight the beautifully played piano solo by Fred P. I added some minor percussion – a saxophone and some marimba on top because it felt like it fitted really well. On mix 2, I was just fiddling around with some loops and sounds, and at some point it all locked in and magic happened. It was a great pleasure to work on this project and show a bit of a different side of myself.” – Steve Rachmad
