Drumcell – Departing Comfort EP
With the “Departing Comfort EP”, CLR artist DRUMCELL has put together a heavyweight remix package for one of the tracks from his debut long-player “Sleep Complex”. After receiving raving reviews and massive support in the international scene, the Californian dj/producer has invited some of today ́s most intriguing Techno artists to create their own version of his outstanding composition. The title is fairly self-explanatory and goes back to an emotion, which followed MOE ESPINOSA aka DRUMCELL all through his life. “Departing Comfort” deals with leaving one ́s comfort zone, facing change and exploring new grounds without caring about possible expectations, a challenging experience, skilfully manifested in the original version of the track. DRUMCELL is one of today ́s most extraordinary and promising electronic musicians and his way of expressing deep and truthful emotions with his characteristic blend of Techno is one of the most remarkable and recognizable trademarks of his work. To have LUKE SLATER ́s PLANETARY ASSAULT SYSTEMS contribute a remix is in itself a major thrill, but the result is even better than anyone could have expected. Elegantly driving, straightforward, deep Techno, perfectly arranged by one of the most experienced and popular underground players of our time – a more than dignified A-side. On the B-side of the vinyl we can find the ORPHX remix, which remains faithful to the broken beat structure of the original. It creates a suspenseful atmosphere and contains distorted rhythms and acidic sequences, reflecting the sonic roots of the original. The second title on the B-side is the MATERIAL OBJECT Remix, characterized by a big, hypnotic bass- line, slowly building with a variety of well-chosen rhythmic elements and textures. Apart from this exceptional vinyl, there is the digital package, which also contains the superb original by DRUMCELL himself and another fairly vanguard remix by BOBBY DOWELL aka PINION. With this through and through excellent release, DRUMCELL is once more underlining his significance in today ́s world of electronic music and advocates an exciting and trend-setting Techno sound.
