Das Glow, aka Nice-born Damien Granier, recently did a stunning EP called « Calcium » with Strip Steve on BNR Trax, and also released, among other things, the religious techno classic « Cathédrale » on Institubes back in 2007. Para One and him have been friends and label mates for a good while now, and had long been thinking about working together. The sharp and fast Marble platform offered them the perfect opportunity to make this project come true.
« Pulsar » is straightforward business : starting with commanding, crashing beats, the track is all about fresh shimmering chords and typical Para One-esque warm humanoid vocals. The beat gets busier and busier, just enough to transform this apparently pedestrian track into a peak-time, yet laidback monster. Craftsmanly-made futuristic boogie.
Mysterious French producer Crackboy was asked to do a remix of « Pulsar ». The soundscape gets hazier and druggier than in the original. Crackboy disjointed the well-oiled structures and made them sick and evil, but still extremely proficient on the dancefloor, especially when this mad, freeflowing 303 line gets fired up. Really good old mental stuff here.
