LEE COOMBS: DETOX & REMIXES
Hot on the heels of his Light & Dark album which has been yet another highlight of a superb career, Florida-based Lee Coombs
and Lot49 deliver the DETOX package featuring remixes from Meat Katie, Trent Cantrelle, Access Denied and Burufunk.
Detox, the second track on Light & Dark, is a no holds barred monster of a dancefloor cut and is a powerful example of tech-funk at its best. As you’d expect with Coombs, pounding kicks, visceral acid lines and unnerving vocal samples all vie for attention but it’s the huge, hip-hop drop in Detox which pushes it into the stratosphere.
As always with the Lot49 crew, thereâ?Ts been little scrimping on the remixes too. Mark Meat Katie
Pember takes a break from an incessant DJ schedule and Lot49 A&Ring to deliver yet another standout remix in his catalogue of standout remixes! His interpretation evolves from a 1 note hat and snare loop into an ’is it house, is it breaks?’ tech-funker he’s renowned for. A tweaky, sliding b-line with a warped key shift does all the work while heavy snares, synth percussion and the original’s vox samples create a dense soundscape. Vintage stuff..
is up next and shows exactly why he’s established himself through remixes for the likes of Subliminal, Little Mountain and Renaissance over the years. Filtered FM stabs, acid licks and beats and bass are all Cantrelle needs to push Detox further into anthem territory â?" and that’s exactly what he does.
Penultimately, Russian breakbeat upstarts Access Denied
deliver one of the freshest examples of the genre this year with a snarling yet melody flecked rub with an emphasis on groove. Things are only just kicking off for these guys and if this is anything to go on, it’d be foolish not to keep an eye on them.
Last, but certainly not least, is Burufunk
who take the breaks batton from Access Denied and run with it, injecting some saw-tooth funk into proceedings and squeezing every last drop out of the track with a nifty tempo-adjusted breakdown.
