It’s been almost a year since the German duo Hyline & Jaybeetrax joined Lowbit with their remix of label owners Bastards of Funk & Sonic Union’s track ‘Mr Walker’. They now return with their first original for Lowbit, entitled ‘Awake’, an energetic and powerful track with its driving piano-esque melody, filtered noise sweeps and big pads. Its atypical middle breakdown shatters the mould of the track, mixing things up nicely while slowly building the track back up to its full on dance floor peak.
Our good friend Bambook returns to Lowbit with a new collaborator, Adamwah, for the first of 4 remixes for ‘Awake’. Having recently joined the classic imprint Global Underground, we are delighted to welcome Bambook back again. Going darker and more menacing with a slight old-school rave feel to it, Bambook and Adamwah’s remix is sure to please a lot of people.
Soulfire, owner of the respected ‘Soulfire Downloads’ label and also new to Lowbit, puts his remixing skills to superb use on ‘Awake,’ turning down the tempo and creating a deep and melancholic interpretation just perfect for early sets or closing in the early morning.
Diego Iglesias has quickly become a name to keep your eye on, with highly successful remixes and releases on Aegyptia & Liquid Grooves under his belt as well as running the very popular remix competition site ‘FindRemix’. Diego moulds ‘Awake’ into a deep yet animated track and adds a new layer of melodies.Wrapping up the release are Indian duo Dual Drive, also new to Lowbit, whose remix twists ‘Awake’ into a perfect techy and progressive mashup with its ambient chord work, powerful drums and electric bassline.
