The extremely talented Lithuanian producer / dj duo Kastis Torrau & Arnas D return once again to Stripped Recordings following their critically acclaimed remix for Norman H & Minoru Hirata’s “La Bufadora Revisited” with a brand new full release collaborating with Australian singer / songwriter Shane Blackshaw. Shane has collaborated with the likes of Lee M Kelsall, James Silk, Vanilla Ace and Jade Blue releasing on Toolroom, Manual Music, Steyoyoke, Go Deeva Records and more. Kastis & Arnas D have built their reputation individually and together in the studio over the last six years with a constant stream of quality releases & remixes including a much coveted win in a Sasha remix contest which earned them the opportunity to collaborate with him for his Last Night On Earth label at the end of 2012. This new single entitled “Down So Long” features the Original Vocal Mix accompanied by a Dub.
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!
2015 seems to be flying by as we reach the halfway point with the summer now upon us. Now for your listening pleasure comes the fifth strippedcast featuring two hours of some of my favourite tracks right now. Hope it’s to your liking.
