Robosonic feat Son Little – Drowning (Remixes)
Robosonic and Son Little delivered an absolute bomb last year with ‘Drowning’, a deep house burner with the vocal fire of Son Little. Now it’s back with a few new sounds from Djuma Soundsystem, Cord Labuhn & Jansen, Chi Thanh and The Cheapers. The EP starts with Djuma Soundsystem and his deliciously minimal remix – he’s stripped the track down to the most powerful bits, creating a slow burning sensation. Next is Cord Labuhn & Jansen’s rework, giving a little extra dose of drama via arrangement and a darker kick. Chi Thanh then adds percussion to create an organic, natural feel while the track delivers a playful bassline growling from below as it rises and takes control. Shifting the focus to the arpeggios, The Cheapers create a smooth dub by reducing the track down while slowly revealing its secrets to dramatic effect. And finally, what remix package would be complete without an original for reference? Yep, we included the original club mix too.
Release number 141 sees Berlin based artist Renato step into the Lucidflow spotlight, and the ‘Mona’ EP sees the Moodmusic man on particularly sexy form. Pure as you like wavetable dub sounds come to the fore on the title track, echoing in resonance to a tempo that is low enough to evoke shoulder swaying and lip smirking as you succumb to the chug.
Picking up the baton from this benchmark, ‘Distance’ adds a dreaminess that sits in the mid-distance, like mist rising from the grass as you enjoy a fresh autumnal morning stroll in the countryside. The beats have a snap that work in tandem with a rolling subby bass, it adds a driving element that notches up the drama from the opener.
Blowing away the mist with its robust low end, ‘Simular’ aims to hit you emotionally in the chest. It is warm, amniotic almost, all so encompassing as it cradles you near, proving to be one of those holy grail tracks that straddles euphoria and deepness.
Finale ‘Whispers’ is absolutely encased in frost, the melodic element pushed through ambient reverb to its very extent. The beats are almost non-existent at first, a mere heartbeat in the distance. However, as the track progresses, it unrelentingly develops into a mechanical chug, complete with the rhythmic exhale of steam fired pistons.
