The album kicks off with an energizing tech-house remix by longtime collaborator and friend of Deep Tribe, Victor Vega, a fantastic DJ/Producer from Italy. Victor's upbeat style lends perfectly to the original synth melodies and he effortlessly flaunts his knack for creating kinetic, percussive, top-line grooves. Which he layers with a heavy, sub sonic bass line, that bubbles just below the surface.
The track that follows is a dark offering from fellow Los Angeles resident, Sam Swindle. Mr. Swindle showcases his mastery with grungy synth that play a call and response game with the vocals or the speaker blowing 808's that harken back to the sounds of Miami bass music, weaving together a complex range of sounds without over doing it.
Chicago native Twitchin Skratch contributes what can be described as an eerily beautiful and dark masterpiece. The sub bass sounds of his 808's lock together in an infectious rhythm, creating the backbone over which he layers a sinister sounding main synth melody who's dissonant texture creates a complex marriage of danger and beauty. A combination which no city will ever understand better than Chicago.
Next up is a seriously infectious remix by Ananda Theory. Rhythmic claps are interwoven between a fat clubby kick, aggressive 909 style hi hats and big reverb drenched crash cymbals. The vocal is chanting over and over the words "Now Move", hypnotize you onto the dance floor. The bass plays out on frequencies that are well below the audible range, creating a rhythmic bass line that you can actually feel vibrating throughout your core, and you just have to get up now, and move!
The next track on the album was produced by another resident of Chicago, Amy Unland. The genius that lies within Amy's interpretation is the versatility that she creates through a unique combination of musical ingredients. While the melodic pads and synth sounds are deep, beautiful, and chill, the kick drum and the bass line are undeniably fat and heavy enough to test the abilities of the most high end speakers.
The last remix featured in this package comes from Deep Tribe themselves. This time around it seems, the duo opted for more synth work, adding new lead lines, quirky note slides, and wobbly synth-scapes. While the original contained a sort of bouncy 808 bass sound, this rework flexes it's might with a bass sound thats more in line with the growls of a five ton behemoth.
With such a talented, skilled group of musicians all adding their unique vision to this release, it's a given that you will find something to suit your taste on this collection of tracks.
If you love tech, deep, bass or just a fan of house music in general, this release is a MUST have!
