In a shinning display of a few first’s for Water Bear Records, Drama brings some serious techno vibes for his ‘Demoted’ single, backed by an incredible remix from first timer Josh Holiday. The original mix hits us with some deep, pulsating techno, nuanced by ethereal sounding string pads, horns and orchestral stabs. The slow building groove induces a trance like state as the subtlety laid percussion take this track off into a smooth, harmonically rich sunset.
The remix from Josh Holiday brings us heavy set bass line driven techno. A bit on the progressive side, this remix takes Drama’s ‘Demoted’ and adds much darker elements to the spectrum. Deep, thumping, rhythmic kicks drive against big beefy slapbass-esque synths to provide a looming overtone of imminent otherworldly destruction while cybernetic pads, horns and stabs ring through the air like warning calls from a sentient android overlord. Josh Holiday does a stunning job of bringing the fear with this remix
