OZAN KANIK – ENOUGH (SOUNDS R US RECORDINGS)
March 20th, 2013
Amsterdam native Ozan started as a DJ back in the late 90′s playing many Dam clubs and bringing something different to the crowds than the average DJ was doing. Now after a break we see him return with a couple of releases though various labels and this track “Enough”, backed up with two remixes, which is his debut on SRU.
The original mix is top quality, strong, solid deep tech house groove with a heart pounding drone of a bassline. Cool crisp hats are a contrast to the bass and we get a wonderful vocal sample throughout that has the power to hypnotise the mind. Very cool FX work adds weight on the break, very cool track.
D-Formation aka Dimos Carbajo is a Spanish DJ, producer and very popular remixer. With a huge amount of releases under his belt and having worked with some of the top names in house and techno, Dimos has built up the respect of many all over the world. Today he adds his midas touch with a superb take on the original. Pure pumping tech house at its best, high quality beats and percs with expert arrangements. The sounds just draw you in with a constant synth note being the main focus, on the break things heat up and crescendo with huge impact. This track will be a main component for many jocks all over.
USA based Gabriel Ben steps up to the mixing desk with a high octane stab of house goodness. Gabriel has a very impressive list of releases through many labels over the years and he has been complimented by none other than Carl Cox as “have a really good ear for music”. His career has spanned over two decades when he started as a DJ, he has travelled the world doing gigs and continues to deliver quality productions to this day. Here Gabriel turns up the energy levels, taking the deep bass and making it roll even more over some arm pumping beats. Great use of the vocal sample that rounds up this track perfectly, big big sound here!
