Having deviated from their usual procedure of delivering one track with a selection of remixes, go nogo’s recent E.P. ‚New Folks’ was their first original only-release. Back then, Fred Scholl and Eric were already planning to give the three vocal tracks of the E.P. to some of Emerald & Doreen finest artists plus a very special guest to have them adding another twist. Due to it’s outstanding catchiness, three remixers had a go on the title track who wrapped the majestic tune up in pop.
The first offering comes from the drummer of British electro-pop giants OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark), Mal Holmes, who has shown a keen interest in a corporation with the label in the first place. Being a great fan of U.K. synthpop from the 80s, Fred Scholl was delighted to hear someone having his composition re-modelled by someone who worked on some of his favorite albums. Consequently the three-and-a-half-minute remix is a synth-poppy-catchy-as-catch-can rendition with a lustre that opens the gates to a wider audience.
Ummagma have boldly demonstrated, that they can transport dream pop of the 4AD-shoegaze era to the now. The duo which has offered two Remix-Longplayers („Lama“ and „Kiew“) on Emerald & Doreen manage to put their stamp onto „New Folks“ masterfully. Out of a recurring sigh, the tracks builds and builds until a tight groove and a raspy synth-bass kick in. From then on the listener will feel a strong sewiny thrust that is not necessarily a dance pulse, but a tight grip to the airy, meandering soft carpet of sounds.
Another duo which debuted on Emerald & Doreen with their „Time To Love & Wanderer“-E.P. is Go Satta. They hit the nail to the head with a fantastic blend of disco, electronica, dub, and funk, getting a lot of praise by the indie press and blogosphere. Their hold on the original ‚New Folks’ is a warm, breezy sing-a-long- type of tune in the early Kid Loco-vein. Carried away by a funky guitar lick and extra-charming add-libbings of singer Moriah, it has become that type of fingersnappy-happy song you want to go on forever.
Out of the pop department into the artier realms of Emerald & Doreen Records, Japanese electronica wizzard Haioka twisted some knobs to turn the already bewildering „Sweet Lullaby“ into a woozy mantra. Low-pitched vocals, sombre pad sounds, bell-like synth hits, backward loops, and a drag-like beat set the mood for a melancholic masterpiece.
The closing act to complete the talented roster is no other than the busiest remixing artist on Emerald & Doreen: Chilean prodigy Statickman has his trademark chops in full effect when re-creating „Let It Show“ to become a futuristic disco-vamp. The tune is vibrtaing with lush motifs that hail from the  vaults of analogue synth heaven. Ironically the slightly skewed vocals of Fred Scholl add superbly to that 80-ish Electro approach.
