Our third release comes out as a single named “Testament”, conceived by London’s own King SlaFF, a producer and DJ who published on 2008 the EP “Granted/Farewell” on Echodub, a label oriented to the deep sounds of dubstep. This collaboration lead him to work with Echodub’s head, DFRNT who remixed the track Granted, and with XXXY who did a remix of his track “Sacrifice”.
Testament is a minimal dubstep track, whose ambient attributes cause it to flow naturally after “Vapor”, our first release.
The theme is built with mellow chords and ambient synths fused with a peculiar minimal 2step rhythm base which plays with halfstep, 4/4 rhtyms and syncopated dubby percussions.
A beautiful and peculiar mid point between dubstep, minimal techno and ambient which shows a special care in sound design and a great production technique.
We keep on inviting mexican producers to remix the original. This time the turn goes for Mock The Zuma -a young rising talent from the northern Mexican city Ciudad Juarez-, Mekha -Vira’s old time collaborator- who did a remix for our first single “Vapor”, and the man behind “Bit Pairat”: Kupa, with a tropical bleeps funky remix oriented to dancefloor.
The EP is mastered by Shawn Hatfield aka Twerk, an electronic music legend of his own league whose work has been published on seminal labels such as Mille Pleateaux and who has recently worked on the engineering of records by Eskmo, Amon Tobin, Merzbow and Photek.
