Audibilis is the alter ego of a Leeds based front man of our favorite electronic-heavy-melodic-progressive-rock-psychedelic-punk-stoner band Fallen Colossus. Having crossed our path a few years ago, it was hard not to be impressed by his borderline obsessive love of music coupled with his experimental flair when creating it. Once he started sending us demos of his more electronic output we were smitten. Its not hard to see why, once you get your ears around the title track.Dropping Mean perfectly encapsulates his open attitude to music. An uncompromised approach to mixing various musical styles but with genuine dance-floor savvy, has produced a sound that sits perfectly between Techno, UK Funky and Broken Beat. This in itself is why we love it so much! Rolling percussion, low vocals and a serious bass-line gives this track all it needs to keep the floor moving.First up on remix duties is Magnets, the latest project of Alex Macnaghten, a London based producer and DJ who was previously in the band Simian. We have been looking forward to working with Magnets since his amazing debut EP on Kill Em All last year. Its fair to say that hes not disappointed us with his take on Dropping Mean. Tough kick, hypnotic analogue synths and a dash of fairy dust take the track on a more straight up electronic trip. Last but by no means least is The Sonic Emporium. After his brilliantly haunting and atmospheric take on our track Unicorn we just had to get him back. His sound cuts across a vast array of reference points, stopping in this instance to doff its cap in the direction of Plastikman Spastik. The outcome is completely off the wall, with rave stabs and at points almost (but not quite) too much reverb, this is music made for smoke machines and strobe lights.
