Both Kohib and Third Attempt have been in dazzling form recently, with a reliable stream of impactful releases on this Tromsø-based label. DJ, producer, and club promoter Øivind "Kohib" Sjøvoll's most recent effort came in the form of the scintillating "Golden Skies", while fast-rising young producer Torje Fagertun Spilde aka Third Attempt blew the roof off with his latest backroom bangers, "Age Of Steam" and "Nu Funk" from The Novel Sound album. Here, Beatservice unites the two glowing talents by getting Third Attempt to remix Kohib's "Sidewalk Confessions" from last year.

True to form, Third Attempt's interpretations are utterly enthralling. Fusing sophisticated funk with street smart swagger, he reframes Helle Larsen's sultry vocal over a honeyed backing track, retaining the ethereal atmospherics of the original while adding weight to the groove. Utilizing key instrumentation from the original while embellishing the cut with delicate overdubs, he subtly transforms the track into a hypnotic, heads-down brooder. Also included is an equally compelling dub version, where Spilde dispenses with the vocal in favor of dexterous scratch cuts - further enhancing the implied hip hop sensibilities of his thoughtfully crafted rework.

This elegant remix EP represents cultured work from all involved.
