B: Warpaint (Kernel Key Remix) (06:38)
It"s been some time since label boss Gregor Tresher featured on Break New Soil. His and Karotte's 2011 smash, "Sol", was his last release, a track preceded by his excellent album "Lights From The Inside". Since then, Gregor has concentrated on the A&R'ing of the label whilst creating and releasing club hits with the likes of Ovum, Music Man and Drumcode. Today he returns home, riding the wave of support for his current Cocoon hit "About A Good Place" and enjoying his seemingly endless run of good form to present: "Warpaint."
No camouflage here. "Warpaint" sees Gregor continue his run of bold arena rocking Techno releases. "I realised that its been well over a year since my last full release on the label and having really enjoyed moving back toward a tougher Techno sound with my Cocoon and Drumcode singles, I wanted to carry that sound into my latest for Break New Soil."
The original burns from the opening thump of the kick-drum. The ever-increasing intensity is fuelled by piercing single note synth riffs, shimmering hi-hats, Gong crashes and lazer shots. An epic concoction. "I've been working on 'Warpaint' for quite some time, playing and refining it over the last few months" says Gregor. "It's been one of the peak time records in my sets and does quite some damage everywhere I play it, hence the name."
On the remix is an artist that has impressed Gregor with his recent releases, Kernel Key. "I've been a fan of all his music over the past months and on his 'Warpaint' remix he adds his signature groove, which gives it a great twist!"
