craig christon and bonar bradberry team up as before christ for this essential slice of brooding party fuel, leading in with the trippy, otherworldly tones of barry s k. from the grinding pulse of the analogue bassline to the mystical keys, it s the consummate astral traveler for djs exploring the outer realms of the dancefloor. mushroom project gently rub more spaced out elements into the original, injecting a little light and letting the hits linger for longer in the ample space of their killer version. tuesday club finds before christ turning to a more sharp-edged rhythmic palette without losing the hypnotic qualities of their sound, before mushroom project return to lay down a rubbery 303 bassline that fits right in amongst the raw drum hits and dense fx processing.

nice price deal !!! debox welcomes another exceptional artist. 24 year old talent christian schwarz delivers a debut that easily matches the production standard of guys that have been in the business for years and clearly stands out from the monthly pile of same sounding tracks. before you told me, which features christians own vocals comes along with fat analog synth sounds, dark atmosphere and a detail orientation and emotional depth which reminds of trentemoeller or swyazak. the massive remix package features versions by spanish dj legend memo and the london based producer duo dzeta n basile. memo combines the original with pumping house grooves and a spoonful of retro coolness to an extremely danceable mixture while dzeta n basile fragmentize the catchy vocals, creating a hypnotic, tribal infected minimal track which will surely have the same effect on the dancefloor. last but not least sternenfänger (starcatcher ) takes the listener on a journey through a strange soundgarden, following the beat along beautifully distorted structures and experimental contrasts.
