Unearthing a never-ending conveyer belt of techno talent, Markantonios MKT Records have consistently struck gold with a series of EPs from emerging artists such as Joseph Capriati, Mladen Tomic and Flavio Diaz. This time out label boss Markantonio turns the attention on fellow Italian DJ / producer, NDKj. Already known for his releases on Boxer, Holzplatten and Maschine, NDKjs more recent work has been found on Mauro Pius Fahrenheit label and Spinnin Records.
The original mix of Bad Taste is a rolling funked up tech house cut in the classical style. Centered on a tight bass loop, the main bass hook is as hypnotic as it is driving while a succession of filtered drops and vocal refrain add structure
MKT main man Markantonio weighs in with the first of two remixes. His take stays true to the original version, simply toughening up the groove slightly to evolve a more linear arrangement and working in a more dramatic breakdown.
Championed by Beatport as Richie Hawtins prodigies, MiniCoolBoyz come with a strong reputation firmly intact. Their mix here further enhances this reputation as they take the mix on a deeper ride, bringing a spacey vibe to the funky original
