Josh Abrahams – Remixes From the Satyricon (Part 1) 12″

JA12

This is the 1995 Worldwide Ultimatum release for the Slab remixes of one of the tracks from the debut LP by Australian producer Josh Abrahams.
Both remixes are of similar sound and style, with an added breakbeat and some new, more fluid sounding synth work woven throughout and a bombastic, gritty sounding guitar lick placed right up front. The arrangements are minimal, yet full and loud sounding, giving new breath to the aggressive techno-ish feel of the original track. These remixes are some of the more interesting pieces constructed by the Slab duo. Not techno, not breaks … somewhere in-between.

Desert – Voices (remixes)

IMG_4689

This is the 1999 Glow Records release for the remixes of Desert‘s track “Voices”.
The first two versions are by the Desert boys themselves. Taking the essence of the original cut and beefing up the arrangements, they’ve adding some heavier percussion to the mixes, along with some new bass elements and a more progressive house arrangement … the mixes have a sleeker sound and seem to have been aimed directly at the dancefloor for this re-release.
The third mix featured on the vinyl is by Glow compatriot Andy Nicholson. He takes the cut into a new, more minimal direction. Keeping a bouncy bumping sound which adds a new twist to the song, giving it a wholly unfamiliar, but still appealing vibe – definitely for the late night, dark hours.
