The 95th release on Asymmetric Recordings finds Jos & Eli returning for a brand new single.
The Israeli production duo is making their third appearance on the label which follows their “All For You’ EP released on Gooseneck Records just last month. Jos & Eli’s new single for Asymmetric Recordings is entitled ‘Something Else’ and it comes with a remix from Darin Epsilon.
Jos & Eli have had many great moments in 2014. The signing of ‘Galactica’ (in conjunction with D33P) to Diynamic Music was a highlight and ‘The Ballad For The Big Ones’ also stands out. Their use of vocal elements is always incredibly strong and soulful; and that’s certainly the case on ‘Something Else’. The duos funky foundation and catchy hooks locks down a groove that’s got a real nose for the dance floor and those accompanying vocal loops are just deadly. The main break showcases those great bass stabs along with a few incarnations of the vocal elements. As the modulation gets cranked up so does the tension and the eventual dropping of the beats is quite a big moment. It makes for a great second half of the records and overall results in a standout club production. Excellent work from Jos & Eli.
The lone interpretation of ‘Something Else’ is provided by Darin Epsilon who is making his first appearance on Asymmetric Recordings. Widely regarded as one of North America’s top DJ’s Darin has risen even higher in 2014 with a string of jaw dropping productions. His remixes for Antrim and Paul Hazendonk & Noraj Cue were outstanding and a second appearance on Hernan Cattaneo’s Sudbeat Music yielded the melodic techno bomb ‘Black Lotus’. Darin’s production style is pretty tough to nail down; he’s a versatile artist to say the least and the diversity of his productions this last year certainly proves that. On ‘Something Else’ he has taken those great hooks and beefed up the groove a touch for an even bigger dance floor presence. It gives the track a much housier more dynamic vibe and thus it proves to be very powerful stuff. A big time remix from Darin, I would imagine this has been a staple of his sets in recent months and the reactions must be great on the floor. Don’t miss it. Excellent release from Asymmetric Records to close out 2014 on a high.
