'Revolution', A timely and much needed social commentary within a pounding bass-heavy icon for the dance-floors, featuring the vocal talents of singer songwriter Rachel Bernard. Plus 3 fantastic reconstructions from Broken Spectrum, Tommy Mundell and Matt Jarrett. Expect much more from this project in the near future with further singles and album soon to come.
The original mix opener starts as it means to go on with a mighty thunderclap and dub influenced dread-sounds washing over wave textures, leading into the vocal that rises up beautifully. The main chord pad carries this 'Ballad' along for the entire track, through a series of beautiful rises and transitions over a serious and heavy bass signal. A definitive Leftfield influence in a well constructed breakbeat journey.
The second track is a four to the floor deep techno monster that rises from nothing with a chorus of organ chords, supporting the base notes towards a vocal that filters up mysteriously. A classic Detroit dance-floor style string heralds the devastating drop carrying the track along into a tribal dance like final third full of emotive 909 drum machine pattern changes.
Tommy Mundell's remix is the third track. A true Paradise of sounds with his trademark rise and fall of rhythms and emotions, sounds drift in and out of focus over a thunderous deep bass carrying the track to an innovative mesh of sounds that act as a build to the final third, minimal and fully focused all at the same time.
The closing track is a lush remix from Broken Spectrum. A different take on the song from the original. Full of constantly changing drum patterns and expertly played bass with deftly programmed edits supporting this original breakbeat. Airy highs to deep sub notes fully surround the lister as this version transitions with stutter edits onto an ending guitar solo.
