After dipping its toe into more minimal waters for our last release, (the excellent Chris Finke Presents: Volume II), Flux Recordings is swimming back in deeper territories with this heavyweight techno release featuring new Spanish talent C System, backed up with remixes from fresh UK blood UK Rob Gibson and label boss Chris Finke.
Playing With Dogs first appeared in the public eye at the end of 2007 when Dave Clarke championed it on his White Noise radio show, and charted it at 1. The growling, anthemic peaktime techno monster and was given a digital only release by Advanced Records, and we are proud to now be able to give it the full vinyl release. The main hook of the track is a dark and infectious powerfully deranged E Dancer type bassline, this needs to be played loud!
Fluxes own Chris Finke turns in more of a tech house mix, and although this is aimed at different dancefloors to the original, this is no less as effective. Keeping the main elements, Chris has twisted them up and added one huge breakdowns and the final result has been rocking the dancefloors for those who have had the early CDRs of it. This mix did not appear on the Advanced Records digital release!
When Laurent Garnier and Dave Clarke chart a track its a sure fire sign of quality, and Rob Gibsons remix is just that. Bridging the gap between the previous 2 mixes, this sits perfectly in the middle and adds classy synths and melodies to make this funked up reworking a quality future classic."
