Following his acclaimed 2010 release Untitled 16 on Untitled & After, Marc Smith returns to "Hindsight," his intriguing deep house track with vocalist Kevin Knapp. Now on Untitled 23, "Hindsight" is treated to four remixes that delve deeper into the moody, soulful sound of Smith's original. In keeping with the U&A plot, the "Hindsight" remixes are cerebral and sensual, heavy dancefloor tracks to make your head spin.


The first remix is from San Francisco-by-way-of-Berlin producer Alland Byallo, delivering on big room bombast and rhythmic grit. Alland has been gaining global attention producing gems for definitive record labels like Poker Flat, Liebe*Detail, Dirt Crew, and Missive solidifying his reputation as a rising techno talent. Reigning in the cushy, atmospheric pads of the original mix, Byallo renders things a bit raw, unfurling the track on the slightly darker side of the dancefloor.


San Francisco's Jason Kendig is a member of the Honey Soundsystem collective and has released tracks on their home label HNYTRX, Andy Butler's (Hercules & Love Affair) MR. INTL label, and has produced a remix of Finesse on Portland's Ecstasy Records. Slow, silky and atmospheric, Kendig's remix takes a beach-side approach by slowing "Hindsight" down and warming it up in a sunset haze.


Kenneth Scott has managed to create a powerful string of releases with collaborators like Emilio Orlandi as Moniker, with Jason Short as Eutactic, and the aforementioned Alland Byallo alongside his own solo material. Deep, deep and pumping, Kenneth Scott's remix spins the vocal into an atmospheric texture, awash with mysterious, drifting synths.


Marc Smith is one half of of the group Safeword alongside partner Clint Stewart, They've had a very busy year with releases on Dessous, Poker Flat and Paso Music just to name a few. With a slight departure from Safeword's low slung techno esthetic Marc's solo music embodies a deeper house vibe. Marc Smith's own rework pulls disco elements into the mix to create a spacious, surreal version of "Hindsight" like a vivid dream of the original.
