For their third release the Basel centred Fleeting Wax family turn their attention to their chess obsessed buddies, Karpov Not Kasparov. The Bucharest mastermind's Vocal version of Choose Your Colour Gipsy Dark gets the remix treatment from fellow Romanians Khidja, label boss Mehmet Aslan as well as a special collective effort from the artists behind the label. The original track was first created for a fashion show during a protest movement in Bucharest and has gone on to become a favourite for those surrounding the Fleeting Wax crew. In the show the models were women from marginalised gypsy communities who donned outfits from well known Romanian designers. The release adds another layer of poignancy as it brings together again the partnership led to The Mechanical Turk remix which has become an anthem for adventurous DJs worldwide and helped push the heavily eastern influenced sound that is sweeping dancefloors across Europe and beyond. The three remixes build on the spacey, smokey atmosphere of the original, exploring the trippy influences at it's heart. Romanian hardware obsessives Khidja turn in a typically jacking, infectious Chicago influenced remix, keeping things heady with the track's doom laden vocal. Mehmet Aslan's chugging remix brings the seductive melodic flavours of the orient to bear once more on the dancefloor with all the coolness and restraint he has become known for. The first ever Fleeting Wax remix is a spacey, Italo inspired reworking based on airy drums and a constant undulating bass line that tempers the drama of the ascending melodies.
