The second release for 2012 is something that has been a long time in the making, and we are proud to unleash Alex Celler’s staple release for the label “North London Cutz” with a heavy selection of remixes for 2012 courtesy of Martinez, Kabale und Liebe and Soy Mustafa.
The original tracks “Bellawatt” and “Route 277” were on heavy rotation through the Summer of 2009 and beyond that found their way into the sets of Marco Carola, Josh Wink, Lauhaus, Nick Curly, DJ Sneak and Dyed Soundorom to name a few.
Now injecting a new lease of life Kabale und Liebe of Area Remote and Soweso fame tackles the main track in “Bellawatt” stripping down the original and giving it more swing. His modern approach with non-formulaic percussion and subtle transitions full of groove gives Kabale’s version a proper House workout that’s totally nuskool!
The sleeper track on the original EP “Supranaturale” was the preferred choice by label head Soy Mustafa. Soy’s reconstruction of the original track lent itself to a deeper organic and minimal approach with a deep undertone and a hypnotic groove extenuated with building chords and the hypnotic chant in the background. The track builds with pounding kicks and a teasing vocal snippet “Till I die” until it breaks down to the haunting melody only for the drums to kick back in for that heads down moment!
Martinez over the past few years has been relentless working floors and slating releases on Moon Harbour and Love Letters from Oslo making him an in demand producer and remixer so who better to take on the classic “Route 277”. With over 10 mins of drums and almost percussive madness, Martinez takes on the tribal groove that’s constantly evolving with only a dance floor in mind!
