it’s time to touch music. it’s time to get your turntable ready! it’s time for ... wow! vinyl!
after hearing these tracks for the first time, we were certain that vinyl was the right format to release this ep. so here we are presenting our vinyl only release and who better to feature on this limited edition release than subb-an, with also a super remix from hector. some serious underground stuff in this wow! limited vinyl edition, with 2 original tracks on the a-side and hector’s remix on the b-side! high quality vibes delivered from all tracks using rhythms and vocals to create a very strong dance floor power!
the lost in time imprint has been releasing bespoke vinyl for a couple of years now. it got off to a flying start with the moment from ralph lawson & chez damier and kept up the pace with a series of releases from ralph lawson alongside production partner tuccillo including nightcrawler. the track has now been picked up and remixed by denmark’s finest house music export from oscillat and delaphine records, s.a.m and one records subb-an. s.a.m is fast becoming one of the very best producers of house and dub techno with a string of highly sought after releases on delaphine that sell out quickly and attract heat on discogs. s.a.m manages to fuse classic craftsmanship with contemporary sounds and has created an epic and atmospheric 10 minute long re-shape for ‘nightcrawler’. subb-an needs little introduction as a producer with high integrity and impeccable taste. he’s graced the decks at panorama bar, fabric, detroit movement, womb tokyo, enter, dc10, d’edge and of course the legendary below parties. while hes always been busy in the studio with releases for spectral, crosstown rebels and 2020vision. subb-an strips down nightcrawler to its very bones drawing out the classic analogue kurzweil 2000 synth sound to great effect. another chapter in the lost in time series.
cor12138 presents three previously unreleased tracks taken from the * dots & pearls 3* mix-cd (cormix052 mixed by daniel stefanik). the exclusive three tracker starts with the concept by waveshape - an extremely powerful club tune that demands a very good sound system to deliver its full potential.
it gives us great please to present subb-an’s first solo release on 20/20 vision. since his joint release with adam shelton 4 years ago, we have been very keen to get him involved on a solo release and the time is now! since he arrived on the scene he has since gone on to become one of its biggest players, with a constantly jam-packed tour schedule and a loyal fan base. this is all down to his considered dj sets, and trademark groove & appeal that accompany all of his productions.
after the huge success of *say no more* featuring azari & iiis cedric at the beginning of the year, birmingham bred subb-an is back on board crosstown rebels to deliver yet another incredible release. *vapour trails* is a solid, driving club track with that distinct subb-an sound featuring highly captivating vocals from amsterdams the million plan. also directed straight at the dancefloor with a deep hypnotic breakdown, the *terrace dub* perfectly fits into the series of terrace remixes the talented producer has released lately. specifically requested as remixer by subb-an, legend matthew herbert delivers a completely new musical adaptation with fantastic use of the vocal that plays out as the track constantly evolves. on the b-side *oasis* leads with swinging grooves, progressing into prominent hats, a unique stabbing bassline and a trippy vocal from whitney fierce formerly of hercules & love affair.
subb-an is back with one of the most hyped tracks to land on crosstown rebels in recent times. a collaboration with cedric from azari & iii under new moniker s.y.f (starving yet full), say no more shows the wunderkind producer on a wholly satisfying song-based tip. a killer weapon for any peak-time dancefloor, its a bumpy infectious ride with a wonky edge - steeped in the soul of cedrics vocals rolling over immaculately crafted grooves
the mighty visionquest get set to release the highly anticipated rain from young shining star subb-an. a monster of a release, the a-side features the haunting vocals of visionquest favourites footprintz, while the b-side welcomes a collaboration with hollands tom trago featuring label co-founder and no.1 seth troxler on vocals.
