The original of 22 Police is a futuristic soundscape featuring the enigmatic haunting vocals of Ed Begley across a journey full of twists and turns, like any exciting Matrix chase sequence. Bouncing vibrant beats give a sense of inertia, while breakdowns are filled with sumptuous heart wrenching keys. BOg and 19:26 provide the listener with composition and sequencing of the very highest order.
22 Police takes inspiration from a dystopian future as the totalitarian regime attempts to oppress the underground, making musicians comply with the state idea of how culture should be, removing free thought and expression. Think Blade Runner 2049 as our protagonist, the Nexus-9 replicant is pursued, hunted down by a squad of specially trained law enforcement operatives ... running thorough alleys and across roof tops to a cinematic yet industrial soundtrack.
Mark Höffen returns to Atlant following his 2020 'Faith EP' and 'Comet' on Voyager III, which we highly recommend you check out. For the remix Mark drops the tempo and focuses on floating dreamy melodies, extending the lush layers of 22 Police, adding warmth and poignancy. Understated and classy Mark's remix is perfect for an extended DJ set, getting the club united and locked into an emotional groove.
