Primer - "Signals" (Crypticz remix) - (4:32) 80 BPM
Review: Next up on Rarefied we have a very tasty set of remixes, showcasing exactly what the label project is all about as we unwrap two undeniable heaters. To begin with, we are joined by Primer as the original for 'Signals' is met by Cryptikz for a stripped back, delicately scored reimagining. This one is performed to absolute perfection as the stunning atmospheric layering and melodic structure give it an unforgettable vibe. On the flip, we see J Sparrow get busy with T.A.R's 'Amplivagant' original, rewiring it into a choppy dubstep roller, driven by triplet bass stabs and warm sub frequencies from start to finish.
Review: Tomoyoshi is building up a name for himself as someone who never fails to bring out the big guns with his music. It's always heavy, hard-hitting and built on soundscapes and vibes which are deeply urban. This full-length album on Original Key is no different and it kicks off with 'Showtime', a stabby roller with a bassline that stretches out over the horizon, the only constant being its grinding, coarse nature and the manner in which it constantly mutates and evolves. 'My Life' is equally as rough but less rolling and more jungley, its structure and nature constantly changes and it keeps the tune sounding consistently fresh. This whole EP is absolute vibes.
