It's not like us to jump on something the minute it's out but yesterday the new EP on the wonderful Playlabel in Brussels arrived and well it hasn't been switched off since, so I'm plucking a track from that:
Red'Out – Tangerine (Original Mix)
If you recall we've featured Playlabel's material before with the Exxon Bacon Watching Dogs Ep, and they're showcasing artist from their roster this time around with Red'Out and his Butts & Pulp EP.
The EP follows a similar path as Watching Dogs, in that you get the original + remix. I must say it's good to see a label that's building a strong artists roster with powerful original music first and then complimenting their tracks with the remixes rather than making the remixes the focus of the EP.
That's not to say the remixes aren't excellent they are, but I've got to say the original mix of Tangerine has turned out to be a complete earworm for me. It's a straight jacking dance floor destroyer, with a driving pulsating back beat that pushes the track along at a breathtaking pace. As the track progresses we get Chicago style delayed stabs and trance flavoured plucked synth lines that offer a counter melody to the looping bass line. Think Dixon, Maceo Plex and the Cross Town style minimalist deep tech-house.
Anyway, it literally came out yesterday, so if you like it get off, grab it and show some support.
