More from the Aspirations EP
Highly enjoyable yet utterly pointless slice of retrokore
This one is a bit more interesting in the slammin pill-driver tekkno mode
brand new EP Take Kontrol
"Masterfully weaving jolting bass stabs and euphoric melodies, Otira modernizes the hardcore sounds of yesterday on his anthemic Dim Mak single “Take Kontrol.” Spinning his signature sound onto a familiar era, the young producer pulls listeners to the dance floor with this happy and pulsating production. “Take Kontrol” is the lead single and title track off of Otira’s forthcoming Take Kontrol EP. The heart-racing production sees the French producer revitalize handsup and techno music through a contemporary lens. Speaking on the single, Otira noted: “I've been inspired by the transition of the early rave sound into happy hardcore that happened in the 90s. I also used to listen to a lot of handsup when I was 16. This is the first time I'm expressing my love for handsup in my production.”
Hithouse the label created by the wonderfully named Peter Slaghuis
The Unknown - trio featuring the young Paul Elstak of gabber renown
this track flipside of this tune which comes in a prophetic "Hooligan Mix"
this also a bit uncouth
great nagging riff + breakbeat combo there - yet the result has completely different feel to the UK breakbeat tekno
in addition to the delicious flicker of Janet Kay, "Hyd & Seek samples the main theme from the film "Phantasm""
post in honour of the best TV program / movie of last year obviously
the misty reverb piano
the genius of the dog sample going "RUFF RUFF"
it's nutt-E, it's ethereal, it's (yes) ruff, and as it says on the tin, it's SLAMMING
proof of God's existence
another remix I've no recollection of at all - "The Slammer (DJ Rush & Fitzy Remix)" (who dem?)
do not recollect the B-side
neither of them
their other claims to fame
