A three track remix package exploring the different styles of Diva Bitch in the remix. DJ Fett Burger getting creative with a simplistic accapella based track that goes in and out of hypnosis exploring the freak side of simplicity. DJ Speckgurtel first out on the B side with a Frankfurt style dance to house remix, that will keep you moving to the groove.

Swiss-Turkish producer Mehmet Aslan, who previously impressed via singles on Huntleys and Palmers and Hamam House. There's something fabulously eccentric about title track "Alysha", which sounds like an acid-fried, Turkish take on surf-rock mixed with hushed, Nicola Cruz-style "global house". Elsewhere, old pal Jonny Rock lends a hand on the Turkish dub disco weightiness of "Hiyar" and the sparse, spaced-out Istanbul-Italo flex of "Beasts", while "Exotica" is a low-slung groover tailor-made for al-fresco DJ sets.
Geist scholars will know Super dropped a few months before he and Darshan Jesrani put out the fourth Metro Area 12" featuring the seminal "Miura" and they'll also tell you the three tracks on this solo single from the New Jersey native sound just as fresh some 15 years on! Super is also notable for guest appearances from the Kelley Polar Quartet, who contributed live strings to "24k" and went on to release several records through Environ, whilst "Lullaby" features trumpet from New York's James Duncan, recently seen lighting up West Norwood Cassette Library.
The aesthetics of this EP is related to the universe electro / idm early 90's by a choice of very precise synthesizer. P6, Sh- 101, Tb-303, Tr-808 and to coordinate the whole an RS7000 which comes to rhythm this refusal of modernity.
