Greg Cerrone returns to John Dahlbacks Mutants with two essential electro cuts...
No Fear and Acid Beat are both crowd pleasers of the highest order, tailor made for the moments when the strobe is in full effect, the nitro cannons poised and hands think theres only one place for them - the air! Yet, despite sharing the common value of bags of peak time energy, theres still a good deal of sibling rivalry between the two. No Fear is undoubtedly the moodier relative, taking a deeper, darker path with a vocoder inspired riff that transforms into a pitch bending synth as it rides a rollercoaster of mini-breaks and drum rolls. In contrast, Acid Beat is of a sunnier disposition with its chunky electro stabs, piano chords and intricately layered FX that culminate in a hairs-on-the-back-of-your-neck breakdown. Its hard to pick a favourite child, says Greg of his musical off-spring, I may love them both equally, but theres no denying this project is a battle of moody bad boy versus happy charmer. Its going to be interesting to see who DJs and clubbers prefer!
Greg Cerrone is a man who needs little introduction in his native France where he can often be found broadcasting on national stations such as FUN or FG and playing to capacity crowds at Queen (where he had his own residents party) or Redlight, arguably Paris finest clubs. Not one to rest on his Gallic laurels, he is continuously expanding his global fans via weekly podcasts and yet more gigs in places as far a field as Las Vegas, Moscow, New York, Ibiza and Marrakech to name but a few. And all this before you consider a discography of over 30 tracks and remixes with the likes of Avicii, Afrojack, Wally Lopez, Tom Novy, D.O.N.S. and DBN. Greg Cerrone is undoubtedly a man on a mission!
