An early summer of 2012 release from the owner of Parisian label, MEANT. Remain has become a close friend of mine since I discovered his work on his label about two years ago.He has more recently appeared on Throne of Blood, My Favorite Robot and soon to be Ideal Audio. The Beast has the now distinctive sound of Clouded Vision, a track that is hard to put into a genre on Beatport, a slow, sex-°©disco track with the repeating vocal Test.Remixes come firstly from Bristols Lukas, one of the main artists from the ultra hyped Futureboogie. His version of production partner Christophes The Force became one of my Top 10 most played records of last year, so I was desperate to get him on the label. Its the most clear-°© cut house record of the mixes, but still with an edge to it that I love about his work. Secondly owner of Italys SlowMotion Records Franz Underwear lays down a driving analogue disco groove on The Beast. Franzs track on World Unknown last year titled Grauzone was another of my festival favourites and I was honoured when he agreed to do the mix. Lastly is my tip for 2013, Belgian youngster DC Salas. He is also one half of Polar, who earlier this year released an excellent EP on Tim Pariss Marketing Music. His mix has a relentless bass line and reverb-°©riddled breakdown that comes back to get you not just once, but twice. It has been a staple late night track for me over the last few months alongside his excellent Gimme on Petfood. Watch out for more original material from him on CV later in the year.Matt Walsh.
