Alan Fitzpatrick & Cari Lekebusch

Pumping Prime Time Double Header
Have you ever sat about playing ‘Producer Top Trumps’ and
wondered what a particular studio combination would sound
like? Well, here at 8 Sided Dice we don’t like to waste our
days wondering. We want to find out the facts. Consequently,
when we dreamed up the idea of Alan Fitzpatrick going headto-head in the studio with Cari Lekebusch we immediately
packed Alan on a plane to Stockholm and told him to not
come home until the matter was settled.
The result was ‘First Times’. Unsurprisingly for a Fitzpatrick /
Lekebusch production certain elements take care of
themselves. Resounding beats, precisely crafted rhythms
and a groove that will make the room move, never mind the
people in it, are all supplied as standard but it is the giantsized melodic moments where the pairs skills intertwine to
give the most exciting results.
For the b-side, remix duties were handed over to 8 Sided
Dice crew members, Rich Jones and Chris Colburn; who
formed their own collaborative partnership to give ‘First
Times’ a good old shake about to see where the pieces fell.
The rearrangement moves the original into darker territory,
toughening up the groove with metallic, choppy beats and
freaking out the harmonic elements with off-kilter reverbs and
echo effect [sales info from ]
