In the wake of his Insomniac label debut with “Show Me” back in April, the French house sensation returns to the fold with a stacked lineup of remixers, who show up to toss some more fuel to the fire. Habstrakt sets the mood with the lead offering, as he serves up a barreling VIP that takes the high-octane cut to a new, deeper level.
On the rest of the package, he recruits a wide array of like-minded remixers that pull the track into their own distinct directions. LINK delivers a supercharged speed house rendition that zips through the self-described turbo sound, which has been taking off like crazy. French duo (and Insomniac Records regulars) put their groove specialties to the test, providing a thudding bounce in their truest of forms. For his rework, bass music veteran Cookie Monsta ticks the dubstep box with an onslaught of grimace-inducing synth play and full-bodied bottom-end. TYNAN flexes his bass house skills, as he rips through a screechy lead that is offset perfectly by clink-laden melodies. Closing out the package is Corrupt (UK), who offers up his signature bassline sensibilities from across the pond.
All in all, it’s a well-rounded remix EP that, save for an incredible dubstep reimagining, sees some of the hottest names showing us their own slant on house—just as the original’s vocal hook intended.
