DescriptionEvery now and then a piece of music comes along that grasps at your soul so fiercely, that as a label, you would be a fool not to release it. That piece of music, in this instance, is Kraymon’s "Papillion Rouge", or red butterfly, if you will. Papillion Rouge is an elegant breakbeat tune, meshing big strings, an ethereal vibe, and tough acid, all on top of a crisp broken beat. There aren’t loads of tunes that come out like this nowadays, and Kraymon has once again proven himself the master of it in this day in age.
When we first signed this tune, the #1 choice on the remix tip was Mesmer. Mesmer is someone who has proven himself time and time again as one of the hardest working producers in breaks, pushing the dark progressive sounds quite like no other. On this remix, He has invoked the spirit of early nuskool (before it was even called nuskool!), and delivered a tough as nails electro breaks monster of a remix. Working contrasts well, Mesmer uses the strings of the original to lift you up, and then just drops into bass so nasty, that your face will permanently disfigure itself.?
Next up we have Dead Famous’s own, and quite the rising star, LuQas. Making a name for himself in the psy-breaks community, Brighton’s poster boy for the new generation of breakbeat producers turns in a remix that drives massively, while appeasing the proper breakbeat aficionados. Building and building until the main break where he drops this ridiculous acid line and blows the spot completely up, LuQas continues to be a producer that you definitely need to keep your eye on.
Lastly, but surely not leastly, we have Mike Lennon. Mike is no stranger to Dead Famous, having turned out a wicked remix of Attack Release vs. Robosapiens’ "Trip" earlier this year. In fact, when we heard that remix, we saw it a no brainer to have Mike take a stab at Papillion Rouge, and he has definitely not disappointed. Very ethereal, and in typical Mike Lennon fashion, very head noddy.
