Various Artists - Double Part 2
Decay Records returns this August with ‘Double’, a various artists package featuring Saytek, Shane Watcha, Robert Babicz and Ray Okpara.
Since its launch in September 2013 Decay Record has steadily carved out a name for itself in the realms of stripped-back, underground House music. Welcoming the likes of Neverdogs, Hector, Franck Roger and Death On The Balcony onto its roster amongst many more. Here we see Decay adding yet more reputable names to its roster, namely KMS/Motech artist Saytek, and Zombie Soundsystem founder Shane Watcha.
Taking the lead is Saytek with ‘Cancelled Show’ who sets the tone with a melodious and brooding contribution laid out over seven and a half minutes with snaking bass grooves, airy atmospherics and shuffled rhythms. Robert Babicz remix follows laying focus on twister 303 lines and robust drums whilst keeping the airy aesthetic of the original composition in tact.
Next up is Shane Watcha with ‘Alkaline’, bringing the dubby stripped-back feel Decay has become known for into the limelight. Ray Okpara then turns in two remixes to round out the package, firstly his ‘Guitare Version Mix’ which lays focus on organic rhythms, stuttering synths and choppy guitar licks in the latter stages while the second remix puts the focus solely on the raw percussive groove.
The ‘Double Part 2’ package is out on Decay Records on August 25th 2017.
