Dark Vektor - Basscelona - City Of Bass - Fdb Recordings Fdb02_8
Devine Disorder, Bass Frequency Productions, Subsonic Device and now French label FDB Recordings... decidedly unstoppable Dark Vektor is on all fronts in 2010! Being obviously and with reasons the producer everyone's fighting for at the moment, Ivan Arnau (Dona-li, Drivecom, Titan's Halo Recordings) adds another essential release to his impressive discography, celebrating today the 10th anniversary of Vstee's almighty structure.
Succeeding to a long list of heavyweights artists including UK renegades Blackmass Plastics (Thorn Industries Records), Dj Controlled Weirdness (Unearthly) and The Dexorcist (Battle Trax), Japan terror AE35 (Tokyo Electro Beat Recordings) and last reference US hero Debonaire (Debonaire Records, Street Sounds, Monotone USA), the Spanish wizard offers to Fdb one of his strongest pieces with the longplayer "Basscelona - City Of Bass", a pun aptly and mostly a wink to the town where he comes from.
The A side kicks off with a driving bassline orchestrated with genious around spacey claps, subtle scratch parts and frantic staccatos. While combining inspired vocoder action to new school electro overtones, this melodic mayhem progressively evolves into a deeper affair to deliver an apotheosis of old school samples, whispers and Sci Fi laser sounds at the middle of the cut. After a smashing break, the track finally restarts, enhanced with another melody over fresh programming and hot spanish lyrics giving a new dimension to the song. Stunning! Full of groove, bass and atmosphere, this is the kind of electro which without any doubt will do the job on any dancefloor.
The reverse sees the appearance of two guests for a prestigious rework session.
Sculped into Bass, Diplomat’s remix on B1 is based upon a heavy heavy kick. I had the opportunity to play it on party with loud speakers and it has to be experienced!! Brilliant combination of low frequencies, crunchy 808 flights, lethal vocoderized voices, stripped down 606 and rolling subs, Will Philipps’s (Electrolab, Street Sounds, Sonic Fortress) version is nothing short of incredible, reusing the main theme of "Basscelona - City Of Bass" but with more energized pads and overboosted beats. If the remix of the UK artist remains hard, the cut is never aggressive and is guarantee to put the crowd in a circle! Top notch.
Closing the side on a retro register, the 12’’ returns to Spain introducing Camilo “Kapi” Sampayo aka Downrocks’s own vision. Focused on melodies, generous strings and entertaining details, Beathazard mastermind, hailing also from Barcelona, mutates the original into an old school electro funk classic, fuelled with 80’s bassline, vintage synths and striking scratches sequences like back in the days.
From the impressive sleeve artwork by Korean GFX a.k.a. Grafflex to the music, this new Fdb outing, available in extreme limited edition, is pure quality design and stands in the right way of the previous releases! Must have.
That's a nice review - thanks!
