Following on from his contribution on the Evasive ADE album last year and studio collaborations with our Head Honcho Rob Pearson Jay Dynan delivers us his first full solo EP for Evasive. 3 original cuts and 3 remixes for your aural pleasure!
'Manipulate The Audio' Starting as we mean to go on we have the Original mix of 'Manipulate The Audio' and boy does the audio get manipulated by Mr Dynan here. A twisted Tech House number with quirky filtered and automated synths over a driving infectious rhythm. Strange vocal stabs ident the track and work effortlessly with a killer groove to boot!
'Sidewinder' The second cut Sidewinder is a groovy dubbed out bassline affair that will hold any floor. Jay's unique production style works a treat here and is showcased to perfection on this track. Acid squelches and metallic impacts rattle out of the speaker boxes and through your body. All killer and no filler here!
'Cosmic Funk' A real Old School house music flavour here with a jacking bass groove reminiscent of yesteryear. That feel combined with a cutting edge modern production sound really does the business. Tripped out bell synths and sliced up percussion cuts slip and slide along with the help of clever edits and all the right spaced out effects makes Cosmic Funk a slick addition to this EP.
'Manipulate The Audio - Rob Pearson Remix' Evasive's label head Rob Pearson couldn't help jumping on a rework of this one. Manipulating things even further than the original and giving a darker sub bass workout. Reverse reverbs create a ghostly feel and the vocals are chopped and retriggered to give a different take. Synths sounds are automated and delayed to drift over the heavy rhythm track of Rob's version.
'Cosmic Funk - Eviltron Mix' Label regular and all round master of the Dark Arts 'Eviltron' drops us a quality remix on Jay's Cosmic Funk track. Taking things in a darker direction with a reprogrammed dirty synth line which brings an organic feel to the proceedings. Plenty of production twists and turns here to keep the interest and of course Eviltron's trademark slick production all the way!
'Manipulate The Audio - Rob Pearson Remix Dub' All the joy of Rob's remix just dubbed down even further omitting the vocals for all the total instrumental freaks amongst us.
