Drama (Twiztedfreq Dramafree remix) - (8:11) 125 BPM
Bembe Recordings present a brand new remix EP of Danny W 'Drama', featuring the unique vocals of DJW. The original has a strong euro sound to it, largely due to the 80's inspired vocals and heavy synth work. The new mixes work the vox to full effect, quite rightly keeping them as the main focus point, and for us it's the Tecca Percussion mix which will do the most floor damage, bringing a driving tribal edge that strips back on what may be marmite elements of the Original. Other mixes to check out include DJ Phew, and Tribal Injection.
There's a lot of tribal business going on in other, more fashionable, quarters, but this newie by the ever-prolific Mr Cohimba strictly looks to the original definition of the word. This is tribal house, 2012 style, so we have the pumping, rolling bass and chugging rhythms. However, he's also added something a little bit different; fuzzy warm synths build around an exotic bird sample while an austere narrator, erm, narrates about his house. It's very reminiscent of "Welcome To The Pleasuredome" or even the middle eight of "Invisible Light" by the Scissor Sisters - that's a very good thing in our book!
