Without a doubt one of the most in-demand production outfits around, Christian Smith & John Selway are coming off a magical twelve months. Genre defining releases for Drumcode, Bedrock, SCI+TEC and Renaissance have put the duo at the top of the sales charts and on countless DJs playlists and if this release is anything to go by there is no sign of that trend ending any time soon Swingworld Finale is exactly what we have come to expect from Smith & Selway - tough, punchy driving grooves with energy to burn. Pitched to a mid-set pace and built around a wonderfully squelchy bassline this is a record designed to set the vibe for the end of the night. Energetic and atmospheric with a serious amount of thump watch this one go off when deployed in dark rooms.
Jericho draft in Paul Ritch to provide the alternative version. With tracks on Get Physical, BPitch Control, SCI+TEC and Wagon Repair there isn't a techno fan worth their salt that won't be giddy at the news of a new Paul Ritch record. Dropping the shimmering chimes from the original over a rolling tribal rhythm the mix has bags of drive and tension adding a twisted, eerie vibe to the track.
