About this item
Munich based pair Jorkes are something of an enigma, having appeared on the scene recently with a fully formed sound and a desire to let their music do the speaking for them. Musically the duo seem to be operating with few boundaries, looking to express their emotional states through their music with scant consideration for styles or genres. This latest release sees Jorkes team up with fellow Munich resident and vocalist Karol Schmejchel to deliver a slice of evocative, slo-mo nu-disco. The release kicks of with the original mix of ‘Thank You’, marrying chugging drums and warm bass with stirring pads and the emotionally charged vocals of Schmejchel. It’s a perfect track for dark backrooms and home lounging alike. The remix comes from Manchester trio Menage a Trois who deliver a sonically beautiful reworking built around heartwrenching keys and heavily reverbed guitar parts. Simple understated drums carry the record along as their vocal treatment soars towards the heavens - this is sublime stuff. The vinyl release also features an exclusive instrumental of the Menage a Trois mix for those who like things a little more stripped back. In keeping with Jorkes’ creative outlook, and following on from their previous release, there will be an exclusive music video of "Thank You" forthcoming which is likely to set pulses racing once again!
Patrick says: Everyone's been asking about it, and now it's here! Menage A Trois are in full stargazing mode on this moonlit remix of Munich's Jorkes, wrapping a blanket of shimmering sound around us as their slow and steady Balearic funk spoons us until sunrise. One for the lovers I reckon.
