Alex Arnout’s Dogmatik imprint has come a long way since launching back in 2008, with an impressive coterie of artist having released on the imprint over its years. One of whom, namely Maya Jane Coles, has gone on to reach global stardom as an artist, Coles releases ‘Watcher’ via the imprint in the early stages of her career back in 2012, and here we see the composition revisited with some remixes offered up via Dogmatik.

Opening up the release is British artist James Burnham aka Burnski’s remix, treating us to his typically engrossing and understated house sound, Burnham reshapes things into a charming electronica tinged interpretation with floaty atmospherics, weighty rhythms and heavily processed chops of the original’s vocal lines. The original mix of ‘Watcher’ from Maya Jane Coles follows, and the infectious piano led house cut radiates all of the beauty Maya’s work has become known for and is a striking indication of the now established producer’s ability to craft stunning electronic music material.

Then on the latter half of the release we have two reworks from Vakula, and as expected he offers up a charmingly unique take on the original, employing an amalgamation of loose, organic percussion lines, jazzy synth licks and dusty atmospherics, while retaining the original’s mesmeric chord progression. A ‘Dub’ mix is then offered to round things off, doing exactly as the name would suggest, providing us with a more reserved reshape with its focus laid on punchy drums, rumbling bass and echoing dub stabs.

Maya Jane Coles ‘Watcher (Remixes)’ is out on Dogmatik 20th October (Vinyl) and 17th November (Digi) 2014.
