After a one week break Deersky’s Soundteller Records returns with a brand new single from AudioStorm. The labels 37th overall release sees the Montenegrin producer making his debut on the label with ‘Cosmic Interference’ which features remixes from: Ewan Rill, Magnetic Brothers vs. Magshine and Samotarev.
For those familiar with AudioStorm you know his smooth brand of progressive house quite well and thus ‘Cosmic Interference’ may surprise some as it’s a breakbeat production. It’s only the fourth breaks composition of AudioStorm’s career and it’s his first since the bass heavy ‘Navigator’ which appeared on Electronic Tree in May of this year. The old school vibes are high on ‘Cosmic Interference’ and lovers of the original prog-breaks sound should be thrilled. The sparsely laid out groove is filled with quirky sounds, spooky vocal elements and a drifting atmosphere which proves to be quite haunting. A cool production from AudioStorm which should catch some of his fans by surprise.
The first remix is supplied by the incredibly talented and also very prolific Ewan Rill. It’s the Russian producer’s third appearance on Soundteller and he’s turned in a great remix of ‘Cosmic Interference’. Ewan has taken the hooky synth elements and re-created them over another one of his rock solid progressive grooves. A smooth build out of the main break proves to be one of the highlights and sets up a strong second half perfectly. Good stuff from Ewan.
The second remix is provided by Magnetic Brothers vs. Magshine who are fresh off appearances on Balkan Connection, BC2 and Suffused Music. Their remix of Ewan Rill & Anton Ttx ‘Reason To Live’ was one of the standout’s on Suffused Music’s recent 50th release and they’ve also crafted what is my favourite remix of ‘Cosmic Interference’ as well. Opting for a deep and somewhat melancholic interpretation Magnetic Brothers have provided a great alternative to Ewan’s more proggy remix. It’s unique twist on the vocal elements and beautifully crafted keys are just some of the highlights which make it a standout selection on the release.
The third and final remix is provided by Green Snake Records headman Samotarev. The Russian producer closed out 2013 with an amazing remix of Airwave & Jimmy Galle’s ‘Karaba’ and in early 2014 made an appearance on Stripped Recordings with his remix of Napalm & d-phrag’s ‘Eclipse’. For his ‘Cosmic Interference’ interpretation Samotarev has closed the release out with a deep, techy and very brooding rework. The tough beats and smooth tones make for a great contrast and the squirrelly synth lines provide an eventful and unpredictable journey throughout. Awesome release from Deersky’s Soundteller Records with the Magnetic Brothers remix standing out for me.
