Sonic Union, famed for his intricate and refined productions teamed up with Bastards of Funk to deliver us their take on 'Behind my Ego'. Their rework creates tension from the word go, as the atmospheric vibe subtly keeps you moving with warm tinkling sounds, a smooth edge and some nicely effected sounding pieces. We basically have the formula for a bit of a monumental outing. The sparseness is the key here, as this restrained gem works its magic while it plays away, creating a warm glow, creating an air of sophistication. "Essential stuff!"
Next up is Anton Dhouran, know for his polished sound, who keeps the ethereal theme of the original alive, as the pulsating bass powers along, before its drum fills and general warmth all combine to do the talking. Like something from yesteryear, yet sounding fresh - This mystical touch up takes the energy levels up a notch, but increases the melancholy with stripped back and lucid elements at the same time, before the luscious pads grace the rework changing the vibe and creating a blanket of warmth that wraps around the effected groove.
Last but not least we have a remix courtesy of Berlin based maestro Wanderlust who delivers a trademark deep mix with infectious chords, intense drums and smooth breakdown. It's all about the groove, silky house vibes and the melancholic beats that are working their magic around Wanderlust's wonderfully arranged keys that create an irresistible rhythm while clever chords take the mind on a trip. A truly beautiful cultivated rework.
All the ingredients are there for another instant 238W classic. Don't miss out on this marvellous release. 'Behind my Ego' sees a worldwide release on March 14th, 2016!
