After his Productions for labels like Dial, Num, Traum, Ladomat or Liebe*Detail Denis Karimani aka Remute surprises the audience again with another unconventional masterpiece. Between the essence of minimal and the deepness of detroit, “Realtime Island” can be regarded as the first Smallville Superhit. A detroitish chord sequence rises slowly up to explode but keeps its deep secret. Karimani’s best friend and ravemate NDRU (Liebe*Detail, Perspectiv) translates the unique musical language of the original into Minimal- his remix got the kind of hypnotic bassline you might miss in the minimal world so often.. The 12inch ends with a classical Karimani pumping deeptechno tune straight in your feet.

SMALLVILLE02 in the media

Anja Schneider (Mobilee rec): “ Playlist - Saturday, 27.01.2007 - Dance Under The Blue Moon - ”

BPM Mag (USA): “After producing on labels such as Dial, Traum and Liebe Detail, Mr. Karimani lets you know that he is a force not to reckon with. Deep and minimal with not much going on, and then the chord plays out at the break and then, boom, the static percussion and rolling bass just kills the mix. The rest of the EP is in rather deep melodic fashion with moving and powerful ideas”

Groove Magazin (GER): “Denis Karamani überzeugt auf der zweiten Maxi aus dem Hause Smallville mit einem Detroit-Track Hood’scher Prägung. Eine modulierte Chordsequenz, die nie gänzlich losbricht, gepaart mit einer warm gebetteten und zarten Hook, machen dieses Stück zu einem kleinen Hit. Tipp für Freunde der Cosmic-Disco: Einen Gang auf 33 runterschalten. NRDUs Minimal-Variante hingegen kann gegen das Original nicht anstinken. Bassline ja, der Rest gibt mir nicht viel. Eher schon „Infinite“: Gedubbter Tech-House mit eingebauten Stolperfallen in der Beat-Architektur. Schön”

IDJ Magazine (UK): “Dennis Karimani aka Remute has produced some laudably diverse tracks on labels including Traum, Ladomat and Liebe*Detail in the last few months, and now he takes another unexpected turn with this sweet slice of classically-informed techno. The title track’s harp-like brushes and harmonious flourishes sit somewhere between mid-90s Detroit and Isolee, while NDRU offers a bubbling, sub-heavy remix for the misty hours.”

Mike Shannon (Cynosure, Revolv: “Real time island remixed by Ndru will get some play. The twisted, twinkle breaks are a lil strange but effective. ”
