Dosem – Projection

Another absolute weapon from one of my favourite producers ‘Dosem’ and yet another credit to the mighty Toolroom Records. This one has it all, the main riff consists of a big brassy sounding synth pattern sat over the top of a punchy bass pattern. So many elements in this track kicking in and dropping out, from little vocal stabs to percussion hats and shakers. A perfectly crafted masterpiece, love it!

Recently featured and supported on Radio 1 by Pete Tong, here is that recording..

NY’s Finest – Do You Feel Me (Dosem, Bontan & Gerd Remixes)

New out on the mighty Toolroom Records is this series of remixes of NY’s Finest – Do You Feel Me. Collectively an amazing release for Toolroom, destined for the top of the house charts for sure!

Let kick things off with the Dosem remix, now this can simply be summed up in one word; Amazing! But I will say little more, this version marries together an old sounding house piano and vocal with brand new deep, bumpy basslines, builds and one hell of a drop. This one is staying in my set for a while! Up next is Bontan’s remix, this version is slightly deeper and more underground. The bassline is nice and punchy, and sits under some complex drums, blips & stabs, before an atmospheric breakdown, very nice! Last up is Gerd’s No-kick interpretation, which does exactly that; it features the nice classic piano riff and vocal, some amazing musical elements sat over a nice bass pattern and some real housey hats…. but no kick! Sounds surprisingly good, check it out…
