burgeoning dj and producer bontan makes his debut on the notorious hot creations label. hotly anticipated, the release features two original cuts to fuel his rising profile. uk based bontan has been using title track the first time as his secret weapon for the last six months and is now finally unleashing it. “i’ve been testing it and tweaking it play by play!’ he explains. ‘the vocal compliments the rolling bass melody and gives it a darker edge”. this a producer who fully understands how to create a track for a heaving dancefloor. personal question is the second cut and flips the mood entirely with a twisted vocal entwined in beeps and percussion, whilst stirring the sentiments of lost early hours. a firm favourite in the underground scene, he has built a solid reputation with releases on circus recordings, 20/20 vision, and cajual among others.
marking the last crosstown rebels release of the summer, yousef steps into the spotlight with the compelling vanity featuring entrancing vocals from the angel. heavyweight remixes courtesy of carl cox, and bontan complete the package.
played for the first time by damian, vanity was premiered at day zero in january, with videos capturing this moment reaching the three million mark. the vocals of long term collaborator the angel caress the memories of lovers gone in vanity, whilst the drums and poignant breaks deliver high impact. uk dj bontan delivers the first remix, picking up the pace and adding his signature choppy beats. musical royalty, carl cox is up next with an energetic force and increasing intensity levels. switching it up, yousef returns with his black & acid dub complete with throbbing drums and stripped back vocals.
