(Danny Kotz Back To Sanity Mix)
The Last Day In Paradise
„made of CONCRETE“ open up their digital only series with a release by Italian soundshaper Kaiser, who delivers 4 dancefloor-ready tracks joined by one of the label’s previous alumni, Danny Kotz on remix duties.
Opening track „Sottotono“ takes no prisoners. A full-on raw techno dungeon vibe with a solid bassline sets the dynamic from the first bar on. Relentless yet subtle, it manages to achieve a perpetual state of movement.
„Mental Disorder“ comes about with a subversive groove consisting of a hollow percussive bassline coupled with high pitched wavy synths. Following in the same vein as the previous track, it maintains the dynamic creating a stable sound environment to build on.
Danny Kotz takes on the remix, creating a seemingly retroverse melody. Utilising grave bass pads and an unwinding groove lead, the result is a reconstruction that is as complementary as it is contrasting to the original.
„Eclipse“ kicks off with pounding bass doubled off with mesmerizing synth loops, setting a progressive atmosphere in motion. Wavy sequences further cement the overall dreamlike atmosphere, rendering a very immersive experience.
The final offering, aptly entitled „The Last Day iI Paradise“ carries out a very solemn and fluid sound esthetic through airy synths and laid back basses. It can easily be identified as the lightest track of the pack, rounding up the release in a positive tone.
