Here’s what I’m freakin’ out about lately.
Aniki’s “Superfly” brings together so many disparate feelings into such a pristinely textured, whomping banger, I can just hardly believe my ears! That synth bend at the beginning of each measure puts this beat on the map, but it’s the minimal percussion that really sells it. Aniki came up on some world renown through a remix contest not too long ago, and after chugging away at one masterpiece after the next, this “Superfly” remix may be his greatest work yet, despite the fact that it’s somehow listed as “Indie Dance / Nu Disco” on Beatport. Hah, yeah right… This is straight up House, baby.
A bit darker, but some seriously kickin’ stuff here. “Evolution” is at least partially about the evolution of Dylan’s productions. More techy than most of his previous releases, “Evolution” keeps in line with the Holshausen style (hear the FX sweeps?) while exploring a markedly different sound.
Meanwhile, here are some other dope tracks up for grabs!
