Genetic Rhythm – If I Could Change My Life (Sleepless Nights Recordings)

Sleepless Nights Recordings returns for their 12th overall release this week which follows one of the labels finest from Dmitry Molosh in May. Their newest offering sees Genetic Rhythm returning to the label for their second appearance. Irish producers Karl Lambert and Tony Pugh make up the Genetic Rhythm production duo and they first appeared on Sleepless Nights back in October of 2011. Genetic Rhythm’s second single for Sleepless Nights is entitled ‘If I Could Change My Life’ and it comes with a remix from Paul Lennar.

The original mix is a wonderful deep and emotional creation. Rolling bass stabs provide some wicked funk while the meandering atmospheres and plucky hooks put you in daydream land quite nicely. A complementary piano ups the musicality even more and the bleepy electronics add just the right amount of colour throughout. A masterful production from Genetic Rhythm. The lone remix of ‘If I Could Change My Life’ comes from Paul Lennar who is making his first appearance on Sleepless Nights. The Colombian producer has just come off two outstanding releases for Bermudos and Lowbit not to mention some great gigs in Buenos Aires over the weekend. Paul’s remix here ups the tempo and provides the perfect dance floor interpretation. Full of vintage old school sounds Paul’s remix has immense character and groove. The undulating bass line and aquatic hits give the track a very vibrant, electric feeling. Smooth hypnotic lines along with the gorgeous pianos and gated keys add a refined and classy vibe while still keeping it dance floor worthy. The drop as well is brilliant; short and with a breaky groove that builds for a quick sweeping climax. Awesome work from Paul and a killer release from Sleepless Nights. Release Promo Hype Chart #4
