Label: OM & Childs Play RecordingsReleased: 12th February 2013
Cult electronic figures Underworld equally cult track ‘Rez’ marks it’s 20th anniversary this year and to celebrate those crafty cats at OM & Child’s Play have given the classic a bass fuelled make-over. Having been one of the original bass heavy music producers is was inevitable such a remixing duty would fall to someone of stature of Lorin Ashton aka Bassnectar and hereupon he takes over the controls to remix one of the most recognizable tracks of the last two decades. Clearly the task was one of passion for Ashton and he cites the track as one of the big influences in his early career. “whenever I hear any version or remix or even a slight fragment of that shimmering resonant arpeggiator I get flashbacks.”
So for Bassnectar is was a labor of love, for us it’s a belter, a welcome reimagining of an old favorite and in fitting with the bass heavy week we’ve been having!
