New Conforce remix for Prime Numbers.
Nick Sinna has been on the radars lately with his debut release for Prime Numbers “PN 13″. Sticking to the dark corners of the dance floor as of late, we’ve commissioned the spaced out bass child, Conforce and Spectral’s secret weapon, James T Cotton to add their touch with edits on 2 of the tracks.
Conforce takes Sinna’s “Real Time” further down the worm hole, adding molten pressure to the percussion, and cutting up the vocal to reinforce “time seems to feel more slow”; while the acid warrior himself, James T Cotton stays true to his roots on his rework of “Voyager”, taking the edge off the snap and slicking the groove down to a more deep, melodic trip.
PRE ORDER EXCLUSIVELY (2 months before retail shops)
You might not have heard Nick Sinna’s tough and recent debut on Prime Numbers yet, but already the remixes have arrived. James T Cotton is first up to tackle the aqueous electro-tech of “Voyager” and continues with it down the same path Sinna had started on. Dragging you further down, JTC laces it up with even more squiggly lines, liquid-steel synths and alien spacecrafts until your mind is doing gymnastics trying to keep up. Growing disorientated in such controlled chaos sure is fun, though.
Next, you can see why label head Trus’me picked Boris Bunnik to remix “Real Time” because, in its original form, the track deals in a certain dub weightiness as well as a touch of underwater drama (both things at which the Dutchman excels as Conforce and Silent Harbour respectively). It proves a wise choice, as the resulting re-work is another Conforce gem that bangs hard. So hard, in fact, that the wooden hits sound as if they’re splintering. It’s a high-pressure track with each layer squeezing the next until what’s left is like compacted rock: solid, immovable and oh so heavy.\
The Veal Pen
Following on from Nick Sinna’s futuristic debut release in late-June, Prime Numbers now deliver the remix twelve. On the A-side, Spectral Sound’s James T. Cotton converts the utopian tech-house of the original ‘Voyager’ into a greasy, off-kilter electroscape. Meanwhile, over on the flip, Boris Bunnik gives ‘Real Time’ a typically industrious rework under his Conforce moniker. Not bad, but having dug the label’s ‘$tilnockeck?’ EP from ‘08 out of the Pen Vaults last weekend for a vodka-addled refresher at top volume, it’s hard not to feel Trus’Me and crew have released stronger output.
