Hi REz is a Californian producer who has caught the re-edit bug. Alpaca Edits are helping him work through this fever. So far he's tackled the likes of Phil Collins, The Stones, Sade and Nina Simone. Now he's tackling the big guns again with Dionne Warwick's fur-lined disco ballad "Deja vu", slowed down into a touchy feely haze. Next Silver Connection's "Fly Robin Fly" is again slowed down, this time into Italo disco style arpeggiated glory and finally the mighty Al Green's "Love & Happiness" gets gently retweaked into a four to the floor jam. Impressive work!
The Deep Dark & Dangerous movement is starting to become a frightening prospect, as they put together yet another storming release, this time alongside St Louis native: Rez. From start to finish the EP is a dubsteppers delight, as we tuck into the delicious designs of the title track 'The Valley', followed by the minimized growls of 'Item 9' and incredibly punchy drum/ reese combos of 'One By One'. From here we step into the evil atmosphere and metallic bass maneuvers of 'Borders & Boundaries' before finishing up with the matured percussive rolls and spacious drum work of 'Diagon Alley'. This is a great overall project and yet another instant classic from the DD&D team!
