Saved Records is the record label of Nic Fanciulli and Andy Chatterley. Both renowned the world over as DJs and Producers, Nic and Andy have built Saved Records in to the well respected and hugely admired independent label that it is in just five short years; known for there consistent output of high quality releases from Skylark, Nic Fanciuli, Joel Mull, Mark Broom, Matt Nordstrom.

2008 saw Skylark release their debut album i-Panik to global acclaim and with it announce a brave new sound that saw they shrug off the good time house vibes of their early material in favouor of a darker, more underground feel. The measure of how successful this transition has been came with the release of the i-Panik: Remixed album that included contributions from Joris Voorn, Davide Squillace, Manuel Tur, Funk D’Void, Massi DL, Stryke, Matt Tolfrey and Joel Mull

In its original form, Krakatoa is a swinging, percussive tech house groove. A super-heavy kick and spitting hats give this a raw, energetic edge while hypnotic bongo loops and chopped up vocal snippets provide a depth of texture that harks back to the heady days of West Coast cuts from the likes of Siesta and Greyhound Records making this a distinctive and refreshing record.

A legend in the Swedish Techno scene, Joel Mull stands shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Adam Beyer, Jesper Dahlback and Cari Lekebusch. Following his awesome Face Up and Encantado EP’s and an amazing remix as part of Skylark’s i-Panik album, Joel is back on Saved providing two remixes for this single as well as fronting the current Saved Records presents Joel Mull compilation released in conjunction with I-DJ Magazine as part of their WMC 2009 issue.

Joel’s Moodswing Remix retains the tribal energy of the original and transplants it firmly into techno territory. The heaviest of beats creates the foundation for a bouncing conga line that sits perfectly next to the stripped back groove. The Funky Flower Remix see’s Joel take the track in an all-together darker direction. A jacking bassline jostles for your attention amongst the swirling synths and distorted vocals that provide the main hook to in this late night destroyer of a remix.
