DescriptionLooking for a big room banger with some old skool flavour? You've come to the right place then. Next up on Tomcraft's eponymous Craft Music label is dark yet playful track that's rammed full of energy from Swiss talents Elvis Benait (once of Toolroom Trax) and Strobe. Saturday builds incessantly with sharp rave stabs and deft little arpeggios hammering away over hard-hitting Dutch house style beats, making no concessions for its markedly direct approach. The builds are big; the kicks and claps are heavy; and the riffs bore straight into your head. There's a bit of a mid-'90s hardbag / Hi-NRG feel to the proceedings, all wrapped up inside razor-sharp modern production. Chunky.
On the flip, Sweden's Solid Snake (don't try saying that after a few Schnappses) work their magic, reaching into the draw marked '303 acid' to bring another element of retro chic to their bouncy tech remix. Gated stab chords arrive in the breakdown, adding yet another element of relentless groove into the mix. Watch out for that bendy bassline too. It's a remix that stays true to the character of the original, but shakes it up into something more rolling and groove-focused.
