ZAXX presents ILLUSION


ZAXX presents ILLUSIONA new name to many perhaps, but in his homeland of South Africa, Zaxx has been building a reputation for floor storming productions and just as impressive behind-the turntables-performances. Following the Beatport chart busting ‘Emirate’, ‘Worlds Collide’ and 2013’s Tiff Lacey vocalled ‘Feel Me’, with ‘Illusion’ Zaxx has fashioned an all-new floor conqueror for the New Year.

From the very first boom of its imposing, hold-tight drums, ground up Zaxx constructs a floor-transfixing production foundation for ‘Illusion’. Energized by propellant bass and hyper catchy & infectious sub-melodies, it has the mercury rising fast. With the South African phasing up the mainline and affecting a devastatingly controlled release of the filter, he engineers its critical mass.

FREESTYLERS FEAT. LAURA STEEL: FALLING

FREESTYLERS FEAT. LAURA STEEL: FALLING‘Falling’ is the third cut from the Freestylers new album ‘The Coming Storm.’ It’s hauntingly beautiful and melancholic bass echoes their 2011 single ‘Cracks’ – which was the biggest Dubstep tune of the year. The jump up drums and drumstep FX are punctuated by the atmospherically visceral vocals of Laura Steel.

On their Original version, ‘Falling’s early light-box atmospherics fade fast into whip-quick two-step snares & kicks, snapping rim-shot percussion recoil and speaker reaping distortion. Subbing up the LFO, ‘Falling’ walks the line between the viscera of its floor-capitalising jump-up drums, and the bravura of its cultured, darkly beautiful and moody bass. As the drumstep FX burns, Laura Steel’s vocal brings the track its coup-de-grace moment, sealing ‘Falling’s lightning into the bottle.  

Taking the track to stylistic spaces far and wide, Stanton Warriors, AfterHours and Wickaman marshal to deliver ‘Falling’ some speaker-kicking reworks.

Firing their treatment up with chunky tribal house drums and loud, echoing percussion, through a mid-mix skim of the pitch-wheel, the Stantons’ skew ‘Falling’ back into break-beat terrain. Using its immersive opening pads & chords to underpin Laura’s vocals in the break, at the top of the drop they cut, chop & loop them to dizzyingly infectious effect.
