King Unique and Quivver deliver two fantastic interpretations of Tilt’s ’30 Hits of Acid’ for Pro-B-Tech’s second release of 2015.
One of the best albums of 2014 was undoubtedly Tilt’s ‘Resonator’. Released on Pro-B-Tech Records in early November the 10 track collection featured collaborations with Silinder, Sam Mollison, Kastis Torrau & Arnas D, Dominiqe Atkins, G-Man, Namespace and Natasha Cadman. If memory serves it made it all the way to #2 in the Beatport Progressive House chart and also earned a feature on the sites prestigious front page. The warped and druggy grooves of ’30 Hits of Acid’ was one of the albums most unique pieces. Featuring the vocals of G-Man it’s tripped out funk delighted clubbers all through the latter part of autumn and early winter seasons. Now for Pro-B-Tech’s second release of 2015 we see brand new interpretations of ’30 Hits’ from Quivver and King Unique.
John Graham aka Quivver had a great year in 2014. The Uk born but currently US based produced closed the year out with an appearance on John Digweed’s ‘Live in Toronto’ mix compilation released on Bedrock Records. The year was also highlighted by John’s ‘Finally’ single which relaunched his Boz Boz imprint that had been silent for over four years. This marks John’s second appearance on Pro-B-Tech and he’s worked his groove magic once again on ’30 Hits’. It’s one of John’s most deep and dramatic studio creations to date in fact; led by an array of clever beats, haunting vocal elements and sinister rhythms it’s an engaging production right from the start. As it’s beastly presence grows panning acid lines lead the track into the break where the sample storyboard takes over. Sure to be a magic club moment the detailed beats then thunder back in for a rousing finish that’s sure to be a delight for all the educated dance floors out there. A deep and fascinating production from Quivver.
The second and final interpretation of ’30 Hits of Acid’ is provided by Matt Thomas aka King Unique who is making his first appearance on Pro-B-Tech Records. The storied UK producer had one of the best years on record in 2014. Following a resurgence of sorts which began in late 2013 King Unique delivered the Beatport #1 ‘Some Break The Shell EP’ in April and followed that up with two incredible remixes for Bedrock; the latter of which an Xpander-esque take on Guy J’s ‘Candyland’ which dominated the Beatport techno charts all through the Christmas season. With 2015 now a month in that momentum continues to rise as just last week we were graced with Matt’s gorgeous take on Sotela & Javier Portilla ft. Emalaine ‘Your Eyes’ released courtesy of the Costa Rican imprint Moonchild Records. King Unique’s take on ’30 Hits’ is already making waves in the underground; John Digweed has been the first to lend his support and video evidence has been circulating all this week. Rough, rugged and tripped out in all the right ways I think this ranks right up there with King Unique’s most inspired work. Layers of offset beats along with a subterranean foundation make for a rib crushing groove and the alert-like stabs prove to be the ultimate hooks. Smashing interpretation from King Unique which rounds out a top notch remix EP from Pro-B-Tech Records. Do Not Miss!
