The remit for each release on the label is for two (or more) collaborating artists to produce original material, whilst a different artist will deliver one remix. However, after hearing three fantastic interpretations from Fred P, Cassy was adamant that the tracks were so special, they had to have their own release.
“His remixes exceeded expectations, and it’s incredible how direct and beautiful they all are.” – Cassy
Cassy has been an admirer of Fred P’s work for many years. She loves the way his music is expressed and its immediate nature. 2017 has been a vintage year for Fred P, with his ‘Instinctive Rhythms’ EP and FP-Oner album ‘7’, garnering critical acclaim from across the board. The ‘Please Me Reshape Project’ continues the New Yorker’s fine vein of form across three mesmerising tracks.
Kwench Records is a project centred around Cassy’s belief that dance music should be natural and a pure expression, a view shared by the artists she invites on board. Both Cassy and Fred P are practitioners of the label’s ethos, looking to create songs that resonate with the listener, as well as themselves.
“It’s not about hit records, it’s about making music for real, and with the intention of what you can give, rather than what you can get.” – Fred P
The three remixes share Fred P’s inimitable sound, with the 10 minutes of his ‘Journey Mix’ slowly embracing and developing into a cosmic voyage. The ‘Fixation Mix’ is an up-tempo cut, with ambient synth keys perched over brooding bass notes. The final track from the EP, ‘Broken Vibes Mix’, features Cassy’s distinct vocals over carefully muffled claps and broken beat.
