Tronic supremo Christian Smith and Brazil's Wehbba have been busy creating a series of innovative single releases together that will be known as the "Passion Over Fashion - Trilogy". In a perfect storm meeting of musical minds these two maestros have come together in the studio on a creative high after their recent, individual, critically acclaimed artist albums - "Omakase" and "Square Two".Given that they have remixed a number of huge, high profile releases together in recent times - Funk D'Void's classic "Diabla"; Laurent Garnier's "Flashback" and Bushwacka's "Westside" - it seems amazing that this is the first time that they have worked on a series of original tracks together!Has the wait been worth it? You bet! Across the releases, Christian Smith and Wehbba explore and innovate to an exceptionally high standard, creating 6 huge dancefloor moments that respectfully touch base with influences drawn from the likes of Detroit Techno, Chicago Acid House and 80's Hi-Nrg. The first release will be:Christian Smith & WehbbaPassion Over Fashion 1/31. Second Life2. Centauri(Tronic) TR114"Second Life" is pure peak-time techno of the highest order that channels the soulful brilliance of the best of Detroit into a huge ball of positive, euphoric energy. "Centauri" focuses on the E-Dancer style bassline techno with equal gusto, exposing deeper creative streak from this partnership.Pt.1 is released July 15th Passion Over Fashion Pt. 2 and Pt. 3 will follow in two month intervals.
