Switzerland’s Folkor Nation, born out of the Lausanne club Folkor, returns with its fourth release this December by Adolpho & Franky and Smash TV, entitled ‘Zapper’ and backed by a remix from Johannes Albert.
Since 2016 the Folklor club of Lausanne, Switzerland has been welcoming a wide array of DJ’s to grace it’s revered dance floor, just recently the likes of DJ Stingray, Session Victim, Tama Sumo and Charles Webster have passed through to perform. In 2020 the label launched its affiliated Folklor Nation imprint which has since unveiled material from the likes of Prins Thomas, Alinka, Lauer, Jonathan Kusuma, Zombies in Miami and of course the club residents Adolpho & Franky whose original material lies at the core of the label.
Here the duo return alongside their partner in crime Holger Zilske aka Smash TV who has released tracks on label such as Hypercolour, Mobilee, Get Physical, Bpitch Control, Selador and more. Once again the artists deliver their signature cosmic disco style as ‘Zapper’ journeys through pulsating sub bass tones, dropped- tempo drums, shimmering synth melodies and chanting vocal lines.
Germany’s Johannes Albert steps up on remix duties next, the Frank Music boss delivers a cinematic piano- driven twist on the original, laid out across six minutes with winding arpeggios, twinkling chord sequences and the fragments of the original composition.
