Marco Fracasso, one half of Italian production crew MindTech (featured on the Salvatore Agrosi “Spirit EP“ available on Deeper Shades Recordings), delivers his first solo project.
His afro tech production "Xiba Chant" is entwined with deepness and edge built around a catchy African chant, hypnotic percussive beats and signature MindTech stabs.
The “Main Mix” brings all the elements together in a hedonistic entrancing dancer’s workout that builds and then explodes in the second half while the “Deeper Rub” strips it all down and is essential as a DJ tool with a dramatic break.
Much like on Salvatore's solo release, MindTech join forces to create an ancestral, deeper tech, stab laden version with their MindTech Solar Remix.
Lars Behrenroth, with his 11 minute re-interpretation, creates tension in the dub mix with a swirling, filtering pad line and driving, percussive groove which builds and layers throughout, and deceptively locks you in, taking you on a journey through his mind.
Concluding this release, Jojoflores has taken his favorite parts of Lars Behrenroth's Dub Mix and molded a re-edit aimed solely for the dancefloor.
Selected early feedback:
The Mindtech Solar Rmx and Deeperub are my choices for this one.. Good Stuff.
Lars and his Deeper Shades deliver another good release full of afro grooves. All versions are worth a play and my fav is the Deeper Rub, as it does not use too much of the vocal.
Ralf Gum (GoGo Music)
This package definitely brings the Deeper Shades vibe that will be rocking the clubs. The main treatment mix is the one for for me.
