I.N makes a tasteful appearance on DRUM Records with ‘Woman’ plus a top class remix by Tropical Ground.
‘Woman’ will please all with a penchant for deep, tough tribal House tracks with a Techno proclivity. Pounding drums, percussion and emphatic piano leads drive ‘Woman’ in the direction of your nearest dancefloor.
Tropical Ground, an artist that has featured on top House imprint Whartone directs ‘Woman’ into Funky Tech House traffic with level red weather warnings or might we say tropical heat? Either way this is another bow to the impressive arrow that is the DRUM Records back cat, take note!!
Navona & The Wolf join forces for The Vault Sessions 002, 7 premium tracks of Deep House & Techno plus a Matthias Leisegang remix out now on DRUM Records.
The Wolf ‘Afterlife’ is an uptempo slice of dance floor techno with a sinister overtone set by the energetic pads and tough beats. Matthias Leisegang’s remix strips back the pads for a minimal rerub that maintains the energy and vibe of the original
The Wolf ‘Player’ keeps up with the busy action of ‘afterlife’, plenty of interesting and dark themed sounds including a booming 808 and building hypnotic melodys that run through the track
The Wolf ‘Revolution’ is more of a late night number with twisting deep sounds
Navona’s three tracks starting with the superbly warm ‘Deep Within’, continuing with the dark, psychedelic midtempo techno stomp of ‘Time Piece; and concluding with the early morning swim and quirky vocals of ‘Standard’ really do set a standard of excellence. Two great artists, one essential EP
