Since its inception in 2010 La Fleur’s, Power Plant imprint has embraced a quality over quantity approach, predominantly focusing on material from the label owner herself with remixes from the likes of Dana Ruh, Cassy and Ian Pooley, whilst a 5 years celebratory VA also welcomed Acid Mondays and Johanna Knutsson on to the imprint amongst others. This time around, we see La Fleur invite Man Power, Adeline, Justin Massei, Chloé Caillet, Viggo Dyst and EFFY to remix her Aphelion EP, originally released on the label back in March 2019.

First up is the UK producer, DJ and Me Me Me head honcho, Man Power with his take on ‘Hunting Grounds’. Twisting the arpeggiated synth from the original into a constantly evolving element, accompanied by progressive drums and wide atmospheric pads.

Second out on remix duties is fellow Swedish producer and DJ, Adeline, a long time friend of the label-head and fresh off the back of an EP on Crosstown Rebels, the rising artist delivers a percussive led interpretation of ‘Aphelion’, fuelled by fluttering synth chords, tension building atmospherics and robust drums.

Boston-born, Justin Massei; a Power Plant favourite returns to the label with his take on Hunting Grounds – pulsating drums and processed synths create a vast take on the original with dark melodic elements throughout the sonic journey.

Parisian, New York based Chloe Caillet, resident at Dixon’s ‘Transmoderna’ parties, follows next with her take on ‘Aphelion’, employing a snaking bass groove, dynamic drums and dubbed out synth ebbing and flowing through the depths.

The label welcomes a new branch to the Power Plant tree, Swedish rooted, Viggo Dyst. He provides a different approach to La Fleur’s, ‘Hunting Grounds’, putting a strong focus on the bassline to mix the track into a smooth and groovy house number with playful drums and ominous synths that ring out deep into the soundscape.

Last but not least, E1, London resident EFFY then completes the package with her hypnotic workout of ‘Aphelion’ driven by choppy synth stabs, bright chord sequences and swirling resonant effects.
