2015 was a pretty exciting year for AKA AKA & Thalstroem. To emphasize the special connection to their fans, they’ve consequently named their second album „Connected“. And this love is mutual and strong because for the second time after 2014 the Berlin-based trio was again voted by the readers of Faze Magazine as best „live act“ As their LP has been the result of cooperative collaborations, the trio starts the new year with some proper remixes of „True“, which was originally created together with their befriended deep house crew Chasing Kurt. AKA AKA & Thalstroem not only shared some festival stages with Raumakustik, even some of their latest podcasts included music from the Dresden-based producers. Raumakustik’s version isn’t just increasing the tempo, thanks to their percussive high energy level as well as playful and trance melody, „True“ gets a heated foundation that is aiming the dance floor. While the DJ duo Junge Junge is highlighting the original’s dreamy soul aesthetics with both their remix as well as radio edit, Pele & Shawnecy turning „True“ into some kind of gloomy, rolling techno beast that only get its color strokes by some of these used vocal loops. AKA AKA & Thalstroem has announced that 2016 will be more clubby again. „True Remixes“ delivers the first impressive evidence that they’re definitely serious about their own promises.
