The Sound (Ben Trucker’s Back To 95 Mix)
The Sound (Max Pask Horror Show Mix)
Ben “Trucker” Rymer, also known as one half of Gucci Soundsystem was enlisted to turn out The Rapture’s original production of “The Sound”, which was released earlier this year on their full length album, “Pieces Of The People We Love”
Ben’s mix starts out with dreamy melodic, pads, paired with arpeggiated “French Kiss” inspired tech tinged beats. The track kicks in with a “back to 95” rave stab that turns the production into a full on banger that’s destined to destroy dance floor. Can’t help but think, Who Is Elvis? And is James Brown in fact Dead?
The Max Pask Horror Show Mix sprinkles in eerie Theremin – esque synth pads, and resurrects the Belgian “New Beat” dance movement from the early 90’s with a Saunderson/Reese “Rock To The Beat” vibe felt throughout. The overdriven Moog baseline is reminiscent of Nitzer Ebb and Front 242.
Throne Of Blood 004 is another quality remix package that is truly representative of what label head James Friedman and The Rapture, as DJ’s are playing in recent sets.
Vinyl drops Nov. 26 via Amato Distribution and is available in all fine record shops.
