DJ Romantech of long-time Newclear friends Soul Science delivers a mix which looks back at a over a decade’s worth of work mostly from the Auckland and New Zealand Drum & Bass scene. It is mostly a lush affair, but accentuated by several more intense numbers.
A long time coming, Newclear Music is proud to finally bring you one of the finest ever pieces by Micah D. WolfeÂ (akaÂ Stray Theories, based out of South Island, NZ) â€“ the ultimate uplifting drum’n’bass cut, “Higher”.
Opening the release is the originalÂ rush-inducingÂ Stray Theories version. Then,Â Soul Science are back again and this time take us for a spin into nu-skool jungle territory but still keeping with their signature liquid flavour. Following up is Melbourne-based Cantabrian Nort, who contributes a thumping, techy rinse-out. Rounding off the EP, nsu again leans to the experimental side and drops a soaring track referencing dub, jungle, dubstep, and live electronica – a number that heavily features in his live sets.
Stray Theories â€“ Higher â€“ Remixes â€“ NCMR007EP
1. Higher 5:31
2. Higher (Soul Science Remix) 5:15
3. Higher (Nort Remix) 7:18
4. Higher (nsu Remix) 7:13
The latest release on Newclear Music is also the first official release by Aucklandâ€™s Squeezer â€“ a 5-trackÂ multi-genre remix EP of their 2008 chill-out number â€œPure Juiceâ€, written and performed by Karl Howe andÂ David Czepanski.
First up is Squeezerâ€™s own TSV Mix, a pumping, uplifting rework of the original. It is followed-up byÂ newcomer Will Marshall, and his extension of the downbeat/chill-out theme, with a hint of breaks. Next onÂ the line up is Dunedin man Haszari, whose remix simply had to be pigeon-holed and it was decided that itÂ was none other than â€œback room summer jandal acid discoâ€. Then, Soul Science return again for NewclearÂ and head straight for a dancefloor assault with a slamming drum & bass cut. Finally, nsu dives intoÂ experimental territory and delivers a dark mix infused with elements of ambient, dubstep, garage and jungle.
The original version of â€œPure Juiceâ€, which is not on this release, can be heard here.
