Jason Grey is back after a brief hiatus with an exciting new release for Crossing Over Records. 'Asteroid' is a synth-heavy, experimental track that sees a departure from the neatly packaged style that we've come to expect from the label. The track takes on a challenging new feel through four distinct movements, playing with atmosphere and texture within a progressive techno vibe. The moody middle section sees Jason taking some big risks, pushing his audience to the brink through a succession of key changes, rhythm shifts and spiraling breakdowns. For fans of the label and newcomers alike, 'Asteroid' brings a brazen new sound that is both alien and familiar all at once.
Spanish DJ and producer C-System does the remix honours with a precise interpretation of Jason's work. The remix holds onto the vibe of the original track, creating a hypnotic sound and an endless tension that is tempered by the melodic overtones of the breakdown. C-System is well known in his homeland where he performs regularly at the Industrial Copera parties, and he doesn't disappoint on his first outing with Crossing Over, holding the track and its techno-oriented style steady throughout.
