De: tached is a brand new house music label launching this October with Carl St Pierre & Mike Jone’s ‘Energize EP’
Regulars to this blog will know we’re big fans of both Carl St Pierre & Mike Jones. Their tracks on the recent Audio Rehab compilation ranked among the best on there. What grabbed us most is the futuristic take on 88/89′ Chicago/Acid House and 90’s U.K Breakbeat Hardcore that is a prominent feature in the sonic style of both artists.
Naturally, keeping in mind how much we love that oldskool influenced sound we love ‘The Power’ from the ‘Energize EP’. This killer track uses samples from the Snap! tune (you all know it!) and BIG 91′ Belgian Rave stabs. This, coupled with a rolling break layered over a bouncing warehouse groove has us throwing it down Carl Cox style in the blog HQ!!!
We haven’t even mentioned the title track yet but we will now. ‘Di Wrecked’ is all kinds of fun. When you blend 80’s rap vox with Black Riot era Todd Terry style riffs, big thumping beats, and slapping basslines you get this ravey roof raiser!!
As a massive bonus, we are treated to two huge remixes on the Energize EP. CASSIM busts out the tops, toms and cowbells for a deliciously chunky remix of ‘Di Wrecked.’ Atypical provide remix number two locking ‘The Power’ in a dark smoke filled warehouse for some irresistible jackin’ action.
We eagerly await the release of this first release on de: tached, talk about setting the bar high from the get go!!!
Release date 24th OCT 2016
