'Blazer' is the twenty-third release of Aftertech Records and the second release on the label for the talented Matt Dwellers. He is the first on the label to release a second EP with us. In order to celebrate this occasion, we invited the great remixers Bessiff and Nick Devon to do their magic. The minimalistic and deep sound of Matt combined with Bessiff's hypnotic vibes and the power of Nick Devon, this has become a very diverse EP in which everyone can find something they like for sure!
Matt Dwellers shows his immense talent once again with the title track Blazer. Right from the start, he manages to get you in a wonderful trance. Quickly a vocal arises which only strengthens this vibe. Once the smooth bassline comes in the dream is complete. Halfway he plays with a light waving pluck which drifts along with the beat. All together this track has such a unique vibe that it is hard to be captured in words and just has to be heard.
In Mirage he shows the more spacy side of his music. As is his signature sound, Matt has cleverly placed percs and uplifting special effects. A strong and mesmerizing bassline lays the groundwork for upbeat shakers and airy synths. This is a track in which you will lose yourself completely from beginning to end. A must listen!
The first remix on this EP is by Bessiff. He reworked Blazer into something more powerful. A growling bassline works in perfect harmony with a hypnotizing arpeggio which leads to a wonderful build up. In the breakdown everything is slowly taken away to make room for a light and soft synth. And then suddenly, in one explosion everything comes back together. A remix very well done!
Nick Devon did things totally different and turned Blazer upside down. This track tells a story in several chapters. It starts out with an ominous arpeggio backed up with all kinds of small clashes and percs. This leads to a strong beat and an echoing melody growing more and more in power up until the break comes in. When it is almost quiet he introduces an even stronger melody to bring it all back with one last bang!
A wonderful EP by even greater artists. This is a must have for sure!
