The latest release on FutureForm Music finds the label showcasing two brand new interpretations of Matter’s ‘Spore’.
Originally released in September of 2014 the Australian imprint’s 7th offering showcased one of its countries fastest rising talents. Matter’s fusion of hypnotic rhythms and progressive grooves proved to be one of the freshest sounds in 2014, and his critically acclaimed EP sits as one of FutureForm’s most cutting edge releases to date. The label now calls upon Australian electronic music legend Jamie Stevens to reinvent the track for 2015. Jamie Stevens has achieved an amazing level of critical and commercial success over the course of his career. As one of Australia’s most talented and sought after music producers he has proven his skill in professional sound design, music scores for film and contemporary electronic music. As the founding member of Infusion, the much-loved Australian live act, he’s left his mark around the globe, headlining some of the biggest and most respected clubs including; Fabric- London, Pacha – Buenos Aires, Womb- Tokyo and festivals such as Glastonbury, Coachella, Roskilde and Creamfields in Moscow, Brazil, UK and Argentina. In his home country, Infusion has received 2 prestigious ARIA awards for their work. More recently Jamie’s discography has been highlighted by a contribution to John Digweed and Nick Muir’s ‘Versus’ album along with ‘The Wonder of You’, released in 2013 on microCastle, which is now regarded as his career best piece of music.
Now making his much anticipated debut on FutureForm Music Jamie’s main mix of ‘Spore’ goes down as one of his most unique creations to date. Beginning with a drummy groove, charged beats and waves of percussion it’s a mix that’s full of electricity from the outset. Cross-cultural vocal stabs and a storyboard of twisted hooks make for a captivating journey, and a breakdown full of spine tingling modulation should prove deadly on the floor.
In addition to the main mix Jamie has also supplied a tech dub which carries the same infectious rhythms and electricity of the original, all while reshaping the lead hooks into a more subversive narrative. The main break proves to be a highlight with charged bass stabs creating a band of suspense before the beats get summoned back for a huge moment. Two outstanding interpretations from Jamie Stevens which you’re sure to be hearing a lot in the coming months. Don’t miss them.
