Phat Traktor continues his fine run of outstanding deep cuts with Cette Nuit. We last saw him back in the summer of 2014 with Negative which went down an absolute storm among many and we have no doubt this new effort will follow suit. Since then he has remixed Ecco’s Switch and his tracks have appeared on our Club Traxx – Dark & Deep 2 as well as a spot on Bonzai Basik Beats, lots more to come from this guy so stay tuned.
First up we have the title track, Cette Nuit. From the opening bars we instantly get drawn into a deep rooted groove filled with low end bass and cool percussions. A steady flowing rhythm is formed out a tight drum arrangement that will keep bodies moving. Very cool FX work brings fantastic texture to the sound and keeps the ears trained. Sweeping pads crop up and bring a futuristic vibe as the infectious grooves continue to drive the track. A superb cut that will definitely turn a few heads.
La Criatura intros with a gritty beat as big chunky kicks are met with distorted percussions and rising pad. The track transitions into a much smoother flow as the distortions subside and the kicks get a nice rounded touch. Tech flavours run through the sound and are enhance by a brilliant robotic styled spoken vocal. As the layers build we are treated to a deep and pulsating bass that sets the track up beautifully. A tough and gritty workout that will definitely put fear into any sound system.
