REVIEW: Boom Jinx & Soundprank feat. Katrine Stenbekk - We Know incl remixes out on Anjunabeats

A vocal gem from Boom Jinx’s debut artist album ‘No Answers In Luck’, ‘We Know’ sees the enigmatic Norwegian join forces with label mate Soundprank and Katrine Stenbekk just in time for stage two of his North American tour.

Adding a summertime shine to the original, Boom Jinx's rework is full of the bright, synth driven melodies that have made him an Anjuna stalwart over the last decade.

Able to turn his hand to dark club grooves and rich melodic tracks at the moment, Jerome Isma-Ae’s remix is a slow burning deep take. With a tech heavy approach and brooding low end, Jerome strips back the vocal for a raw industrial flavour.

Having made a bold first impression on the label with Anjunabeats Volume 12 favourite ‘Contrasts’, Serbia’s Marko Cubic aka Vintage & Moreli’s swaggering house rework highlights Katrine’s fiery vocals. Funk fuelled, Marko’s unique sound is stamped all over this impressive remix, taking record of the week on Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy radio show.

For fans of the original, the extended album mix is also available.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Boom Jinx without a doubt is a true gentleman with great character and respect for other artists. His collaboration with Soundprank and Kartine is absolutely mindblowing. The original version is modern neo trancer with agressive electrified basslines, thumping grooves and the blessing of the heartfelt indie rock style vocal by Katrine that is so dynamic and elegant at the same time. Boom Jinx new interpretation is packed with great percussion, spacious basslines and spanking joyful groove that underlines the dark edges of the track. Superb piano breakdown, magical elevating strings and climax that ensures club satisfaction with big euphoric synths. Jerome Isma-ae is always looking for the moodiness in any track and he manage to expose it in his remix packed with rolling drums, haunting basslines and great arrangement that builds the tension while keeping the vocal to the minimum. For the deep progressive house meets trance lovers Vintage & Morelli goes even deeper with old school metallic basslines, warm cinematic strings and floating spacey atmosphere. The vocal seems to be compatible with his balearic summery warm hearted version that is danceable and so relaxing! #PureGold Love It[/content]
