All I Have
Rotation Deep UK
Supported by the likes of Blumarten, Technimatic, and none other than LTJ Bukem, Rotation Deep has grown from a promising acorn into a flourishing musical tree. The fruits born from this tree typically have one thing in common: they are deep, luscious slices of proper, soulful drum and bass music, while recently their roots have grown wider and stronger to encompass releases from stellar artists such as Paul SG, Nitri and Duoscience. Furthermore, their recent Definitions of the Deep III LP is hands down the best collection of aquatic drum and bass youll hear this side of the Pacific Ocean.Their forthcoming release introduces a new starlet Kinetic One into the mix with a beautiful new track called All I Have.
This is a slightly yearning affair, defined by mournful chords and pads which build slowly throughout the track and a loss filled sorrowful vocal that propels a real feeling of sentiment into the back of your mind. Then in the background, perfectly programmed to float just at the horizon of your hearing is a shimmering, beautifully oscillating string which rises to the fore and back again like gentle waves on a beach.The bass sort of simmers, it doesn't pulse or generally destroy stuff on its way out of the speakers; it just hums softly, adding superbly to the general atmosphere this tune creates. On the other side, Intersoul is on remix duties to transform the original into a nice amen roller,pitching it up slightly Intersoul plays with the fine base ingredients entrusted to him by Kinetic One, bringing the keys to the fore and adding his own interpretation of a deeper, tunneling and more iridescent bassline to the mix. Its really nicely done, and you can expect to be hearing this one on dance floors all around the world.
In short, get this one picked up. On one side you've got a stunningly deep soulful piece which youll find yourself listening to along over and over again, while on the other you've got something to take with you to the clubs to get any dance floor into a hypnotic jellyfish style pulsating mass. Top stuff.
