Norman H & Minoru Hirata – “La Bufadora” gets two new reworkings, and of course, both of the highest order! Kastis Torrau & Arnas D are first up, and land us with a deep and hypnotic gem, its moody and tasty synths sounding out, while the underlying arp tinkers away, with subtle percussive fills meeting phat sub bass. Whats not to like?. Phonic Scoupe beef things right up, with its chunky beats and seriously large synths booming out and causing mayhem. Layers of melodics intersperse beautifully creating a bit of a moment!

180-SD Rebel One – On My Own (inc. dubspeeka & Kastis Torrau Remixes) | Stripped Digital

Rebel One return the Stripped label group, with more devastating goodness, backed by a serious remix package.
The original of ‘On My Own’ is a moody and deep affair, with its serious intentions meeting snippets of vocal and tripped out fx, all melting together nicely for some serious vibes.

dubspeeka is first up on remix duties, and beefs things right up! A serious techno workout, bringing the bassline to light and utilising the vocals to great effect, this solid slab of dancefloor just keeps on going (and going). Rounding things off nicely, we have Kastis Torrau’s remix. This rework nods to the original with its eerie edges, but phatens things up with its big bass, while and infectious arp like melody cascades along effortlessly adding depth.
