Jeroen Search did a pretty amazing release for us last year. 'Mobility' ended up being supported by a lot of artists (Rolando, Marcel Fengler, Kr!z, Pfirter, Slam, Terence Fixmer, Laura Heath and Estroe to name but a few) and did better than any vinyl release we had done thus far. So, we move on, and from now on on vinyl first and foremost.
Both tracks are based on Jeroen's liveset: raw, booming and pretty straightforward yet with that typical Jeroen Search touch. Ellipse is a very effective dancefloor weapon for the technoheads amongst you: loopy, minimalistic and excellent for three deck action.
"Periapsis" on the other hand is the (relatively) calmer track: deepness, darkness, smoothness,... loch ness, whatever. The background sounds give it a unsettling vibe while the acid'ish stabs give it that hypnotic feel you drugheads all crave for.
But the icing on the cake is definetely the Conforce remix. Delsin pedigree, Rush Hour poster boy, and a great guy from that bleep on the radar above our country. His version keeps the wobbly background of the original and turns the entire track in a mean offbeat percussion mofo. Threatening berghain'ish stabs, rattling cowbells and a break that will knock the fillings out of your teeth: tell me you don't love this track. Conforce is beyond any doubt one of the most intresting dutch artists of the past few years, after Marco Borsato of course. All hail to the King.
We couldn't convince any of our friends to get naked, so no women on the artwork this time. But the mastering has been done again by our guru of bass, mr. Matt Colton at Air Studios in London. His references (Kanye West, Time To Express, Kylie Minogue, Libertines,...) should tell you what league he's playing in.
