While everyone was sleeping Mutant Beat Dance (the production duo of Chicago’s Traxx and Beau Wanzer) were in the studio cooking up something nasty. If you know these guys then you know they are out to push music into a different realm every time they work. On this 12″ we get two very different songs, the lead cut being driven by 727s, JX-3P bass, and some sampled horns which make this a driving and funky excursion bring you back to another time and place. Sketch III clocks in at around 110 bpms and drives on and on and on, plodding through the depths of your mind while conflicting voices (mis)guide you through your trip. Strictly for the freakz.
This release compiles 2 of his finest tracks from out of print Finale releases, “Emotive Vibrations” from Finale Sessions Vol 1, & “Dawn” from “Finale Select Vol 1”. Moody deep house from Fred P.
Protect-U move to Vibrations for this four-track EP of foggy analogue house oddities. “Wild Drift” opens proceedings with a flowing piece of arpeggiated machine funk, shifting through a myriad of hazy moods, whilst “Ultra (Basic mix)” utilizes a conga led rhythm and aquatic bassline in combination with dramatic lead melody. This track is revisited on the flip, as “Slow Ultra” gives a reversion characterized by its shimmering, intertwining pads punctuated by a rich bassline. The EP is closed by “Bright After Dark”, undoubtedly the moodiest track of the bunch; foregoing the relatively rich melodies of its counterparts, it focuses instead on swampy atmospherics and an industrial squelch.
Marcello Napoletano presents the first release from his private collection. This is a 100 copies limited edition only available direct from the producer.
