DescriptionThe 59th release on Movement Recordings sees the label focusing on more techno inspired sound this time. It's the debut of a brand new collaboration between Turkish producer Ozan Kanik and Argentinean Mariano Santos. Ozan currently resides in Amsterdam and this will be his first officially released production while Mariano is a veteran of the scene with well over 100 releases to his credit. The duo's debut is entitled 'Hooked' and it comes with remixes from: Alex and Filip and Minimalend.
The original mixes hits hard right out of the gate with punishing beats, a relentless techno groove, crisp processing and wicked modulation which keeps the groove fresh. An electric sounding bass line and walls of subtle noise fade into the mix and serve to reveal a super catchy sequence of vocal stabs which is sure to be a hit on floor. Additional drums build the composition towards the drop where things really take off. A more pronounced wall of phazing white noise raises the tension and anticipation to a remarkable level before the electric groove hammers back down along with the vocal hooks for a perfect climax.
The first remix is supplied by the Slovenian duo Alex and Filip who are making their Movement Recordings debut here. Alex Nemec and Filip Wieser joined forces in 2005 and in doing so the Alex and Filip production moniker was born. DJs from Marco Bailey to Dave Seaman have sung their praises and they've appeared on Tronic, Rekluse, Respekt, Replug, Flow and their own esteemed Mirabilis imprint. For their 'Hooked' interpretation Alex and Filip have delivered a sure fire techno bomb with killer granulation on the claps and ultra cool processing on the vocal bits. A grinding synth lead with a real electric energy is the centre piece element here and should be murder on the dance floor. Huge remix from Alex and Filip.
The final mix on the package comes from Minimalend who is also making his debut on Movement here. Evangelos T. known as Minimalend was born and raised in the district of Piraeus-Athens-Greece. His remix here will only be his third officially released production but he has been DJing for many years at local Athens bars such as Vitrine club, Royal bar, Londoner club, Afro club and many more. Minimalend's 'Hooked' interpretation rounds the package out nicely with a tribal techno groove at the outset. Cool electronics and wispy atmospheric accents surround the framework as the piece builds. It's a sinister vibe that's really going to deliver a great mood on the dance floor and with a cavernous breakdown as the centre piece you're sure to see a massive reaction from this one.
