"Taken from Terrorhythm’s forthcoming ‘Remastered’ album. It has been a great project to be involved with and I’m really happy with the way this remix has turned out.
Awaking, the intro rises slowly, gently widening its caress. Its crisp-clean snare takes centre stage, as gorgeously soft pads add an eerie tone, intensified by the enchantingly wry vox. The first drop brings us to a deeper plain, vast and spacious; we pass the myriad weird and wonderful elements which inhabit this new kindled, silvered world. The bass skulks beneath, the vox soars proudly, ascending and descending, majestically magnetising all unto it.
Oh my giddy, always good to have new Tessela drilling holes in your buggered and oversaturated eardrums, and with his new tenure on R&S we find him in suitably uncompromising spirits. ‘Rough 2’ is good, yet feels a little expected. ‘Butchwax’ is more like it; bat-shit crazy, tough wormhole drums and more complexity than Phillip Glass on LSD, with a splash of Afrika Bambaataa tossed in for a retro wet dream. ‘C’mon, Let’s Slow Dance’ is like Dizzie said, “Bonkers”.
LTN is proving as prolific as he is diverse, churning out uplifting trance records while also showing here that he can take things very, very deep when he’s so inclined. ‘Teardrop’ is an excellent offering on the Enhanced label’s progressive offshoot; the grooves are house-inspired, while the powering bassline is pure progressive. LTN weaves the ambient elements into the tune beautifully, using them eventually to usher in the melodic hook. Deep and gorgeous, the B-side ‘Hopes and Fears’ is equally worth taking a look at.
