Anyone looking for the shapely fusion of club music and chubby pop appeal will not go past Douglas Greed this summer. "Driven, his debut album for BPitch Control, is following not only the extraordinary "Fake EP" (BPC284), but gathered in endorphin rich manner the many talents of the Jena-based producer: pulsating melodies meet pleasurable power chords, catchy sounds come upon humor and melancholy. The title track is an impressive appetizer of his Eating Snow project with Polish singer Mooryc and with the combination of hymnal vocals and the swarming slo-mo pathos, the track is clearly one of the many highlights of the record that comes now in five powerful interpretations. The jester and prankster Seth Troxler begins his remix with a nostalgic atmosphere, which is accompanied by an impatient bass and gazelle-like miniature claps. While kick drum and delicate percussion roll out the house carpet, the beautiful steel drum sounds arise a breezy summer feeling that invites you to dream already a gem for this years festival season. The French DJ and producer Chloe plays with the chopped vocals of Mooryc on her version. This staccato-driven style with its vocal pinpricks releases a conjuring aura, whereby the hypnotic bass line targets the dancefloor. Upon You Records label boss and Watergate resident Marco Resmann starts his remix with a monotonous drumbeat, whilst the adventitious soundscapes evoke a mixture of menace and melancholy. Although he almost entirely omits Moorycs timbre, his interpretation is carried by a deep devotion. The colorful synth dialogue not only sprays a soft French touch, but also particularly emphasizes the joyous potential of the original. The British drumnbass producer dBridge concentrates on purification, while the classic tech-step sound constitute the basis of his version. With a decelerated character, dBridge includes nuanced percussion next to a scratchy guitar delay and occasional interspersed bass drones. Last but not least, there is also a small comeback we can celebrate. After four EPs between 2001 and 2005, the Frenchman Feadz returns with his Greed remix once again on BPitch Control. His galloping version not only houses a wealth of fine sounds, with short and ticked loops the hedonistic party fun stands in the foreground. Feadz alternative hip-hop design is framed by not only high pitched vocals but dominant wild percussion as well as a special bass rule of three. "Driven Remixes" - strong quality release!
