Episode 002 – May 12, 2010: Spektre & Style of Eye

FRESH PRODUCE episode 002: May 12, 2010

This week Spektre stops by to talk about their debut studio album “Casting Shadows without Light” and Style of Eye drops a line from Sweden to talk about his mixed compilation out now on Ministry of Sound. Featuring brand new music from Gui Borratto, Kassey Voorn and Egostereo, Eric Prydz and Faithless…and so much more. Can you handle it?

1. Massive Attack feat. Hope Sandoval – Paradise Circus (Gui Borratto remix)

If you haven’t heard this track already, you probably don’t get out much – it’s been getting plays from practically everyone in the business, and it’s easy to see why. Killer vocal with some awsome arrangements by Gui Borratto who fleshes out an almost James Bond-like guitar riff. It was a featured free download over at RCRDLBL who always give out nice stuff. Paradise Circus is off of Massive Attack’s fifth studio album “Heligoland” which is a must-have.

2. Spektre – Memory Effect [Respekt]

Spektre releases this track off their debut studio album “Casting Shadows without Light”. The album is replete with surprises, and this track is one of the biggest. It’s almost downright trancey, and as Paul Maddox explains in our interview, the goal was really to find the diversity neccessary to make a true *album*. We say mission accomplished.

3. Pryda – Inspiration [Pryda]

Another track that’s been caned over the past couple months, it was a must to put on the show at some point. Pryda is always offering a fresh slice of melodic prog, this one is made especially delicious with a killer warm-synth breakdown smack dab in the middle. A highlight release from a very solid brand.

4. Kassey Voorn & Pete McCarthey – Enso (Egostereo remix)

One of my dear friends Kassey Voorn has been getting some major attention lately. Not only for his bootleg remix of Holden & Thompson’s “Nothing” (no release date planned yet, but you can find it on YouTube – check it out), but also for this brand new bomb that’s already rising up the charts. He teams up with fellow-Athenian producer and a remix by Egostereo. Classic prog in the best of ways.

5. Cirez D – Glow (In the Dark Dub) [Mouseville]

Mmmmmm. Well, if you thought the original “Glow” was a monster, this darkly twisted dub blows it out of the water. Killer bassline, killer pads, killer track. It’s so far up my alley I live next door to it. It also happens to be our *second* track in the show by Eric Prydz, this time under his Cirez D moniker. Someone is a bit hot of late.

6. King Unique – 2,000,000 Suns (Original Mix) [Bedrock]

If you tuned in for the Top 10 of ’09 then you know we have a soft spot here for the Matt’s from the UK, King Unique. They out-do themselves here on their Bedrock debut. Like label-boss John Digweed, I’m a sucker for Blade Runner-style melody, and this has a wonderfully fresh slice of just that. Check the original and the remixes just released this week!

7. Torben Boswich – I Move On (Style of Eye remix) [MOS]

Off of his debut mixed compilation for Ministry of Sound, this Style of Eye remix is actually a year old now, but you wouldn’t know it. Originally by Torben Boswich, Style of Eye admits in our interview that it reminded him of the remix he did for Josh Gabriel, which is ironic since that track was our introduction to him in the first place. Fresh stuff from a producer and DJ who is *constantly* reinventing himself.

8. Jerome Isma-ae & Tomcraft – (Weekend Heroes remix) [Jee Productions]

If you’ve been paying attention to our Twitter feed, then you’ve seen the posts about Weekend Heroes. They really kick it up a notch on a solid effort from Jerome Isma-ae & Tomcraft that really becomes something special with an *insane* bassline. This track is made to be played loud. Very loud.

9. Faithless – Not going Home (Eric Prydz remix) [PIAS Recordings]

We’ve been waiting for this to drop ever since WMC a couple months ago – well it’s *finally* here. Faithless is back in true old form on this one, great driving pace, fantastic lyric and vocals from Maxi Jazz, and Eric Prydz absolutely destroys the remix. Sasha & Digweed left Mansion Miami in ruins with this bomb. Not to be trifled with.

As always, thanks so much for tuning in. Keep your eyes out right here on the site for the extended interviews with both Spektre and Style of Eye, which will be posted soon. Keep it locked for next week’s show with more special guests to be announced on our Twitter feed and Facebook Fan page. Keep it Fresh! 🙂
