First up we have the Original Mix that takes us deep into the techno sound with its pounding beats and tribal rhythms. Huge chunky kick drums lead the way and are backed up with a deep rumbling bassline as well as a super tight drum arrangement. The drums are the big hitters here, a cacophony of sounds converge into one smooth techno induced rhythm that will have you hooked from the outset. Over the drums we get a range of cool percussions that add so much texture to the groove. A monstrous wall of sound ensues that will shake the foundations in any venue.
CZ label founder and Belgian techno wizard Van Czar is up first on remix duties and he proves once more the sheer talent he holds. Fresh off the back of his latest Bonzai Basiks cut - Take Control - alongside Acid Kit, Van never fails to impress with his brand of dark, rhythmic techno. Here on the remix he gets right down to it from the outset as he builds layers of drums to form a solid rhythm. On the low end a rumbling bassline does the business, drawing you in and not letting go. Tight percussions flow effortlessly through the sound as we go deeper into techno. On the break we get teased by heavily FX'd synths as that bass fades out before we get slammed right back into full on mode for the duration. Superb stuff once more, not to be missed.
Colombian DJ and producer Felo Rueda aka Juan Felipe Rueda also debuts on CZ with his brilliant remix. Juan became interested in electronic music around the age of 17 when he started going to Rave parties and clubs. He soon got into DJing and scored many gigs around his local scene. In 2013 he started to produce and quickly established himself as a top artist with appearances on labels such as Black Kat, BullDog Records, Dark Face Recordings, Phunk Traxx , KoolKatz Recordings, Funk' Deep, Jumpstereo, HardCutz Records, Magna Recordings, SubMerged, Nell Records and many others. His tracks have been championed by the likes of Richie Hawtin, who has a major influence on him as an artist, among others. His sound goes from Tech House to Techno, with an underground style full of energy for the dancefloor. The remix certainly exudes an energetic flow with pumping beats and a deep underlying bassline that probes every nook and cranny of the sound. Cool rhythmic hats and drums provide a solid platform for the groove to take hold as the track intensifies with a little help from an intermittent rising synth. A beautifully constructed slice of deep techno that will definitely rock out any floor.
Portuguese DJ and producer Diogo Tavares aka Protyv returns to CZ for his second outing on remix duties after his debut - Organic - back in March 2016. Diogo is a gifted musician having learned
