BLUFELD – METROBOT CITY
September 11th, 2013
The ever impressive Blufeld returns with a follow up to his 2009 prog trancer “Metrobot”. This sequel entitled “Metrobot City” comes with two superb remixes and is sure to be a hit just like his 2009 track. Currently Blufeld is busy with remixes and original material with the possibility of a few collabs also, so watch this space!
The Original Mix intros with deep rising synths and subtle percussions, this leads up to a chunky kick which gets the groove flowing. Throughout the track the kicks transform into a type of mini breaks which adds a lot of character to the sound. Melodies play a big part here also with many variations combing beautifully and becoming prominent on the break. After the break the track gains a lot more momentum as the vibe intensifies, quality stuff!
First up on remix duties is an emphatic duo who are no strangers to the Bonzai stable. Castra & Sovve serve up a real summery treat on their remix. The guys have both featured many times across many of Bonzai’s different labels and both guys have also worked with Blufeld in the past. The remix takes on a much more upbeat vibe, the classic kick and hat intro blends nicely into a full on pumping track when the bass comes through. The delightful melodies soon follow and you really do get a sense of summer from the sound. On the break the melodies are king and these build up brilliantly to a perfect climax before settling back into a smooth blissed out ride.
Tokyo based producer 06R is next up on remix. Hisataka is fresh from his last release which was “Air 2.0″ on Green Martian and he always delivers the goods with his own brand of quality. Here his remix takes the breaks route with a very intense mixture of sounds. From the off a super tight breaks arrangement takes hold with many more layers being added throughout. The melodic sequences are top notch and blend so well with the tougher side of the breaks. A must have for those later evening terrace parties.
