Anthony James has been a close friend of ours at Death Proof Recordings for some time.
His music knowledge and skill preceed him: accomplished engineer, producer and DJ, he's played alongside the best (Alan Fitzpatrick, Tim Green, Audiojack) and had his music played by the best (Claude Vonstroke, Richie Hawtin, Paco Osuna).
He's already hit us with a stunning remix in the shape of Machine Electrique's 'La Machine', but this time around his original work takes front stage!
The lead track 'Brazil' encompasses a deep-melodic bass, a stunning collection of monstrous yet emotive synths and atmospherics and his signature tighter-than-a-duck's-backside drumline!
His second effort 'Blanked' goes into deeper than deep-house territory, cheeky 70's and 90's samples and wailing synths lace a stabby, funk fuelled groover that is guaranteed to go down well with any dancefloor!
Undertaking remixes on 'Brazil' is the irrepressible Rektchordz, booming out yet another broken masterpiece; rasping and cutting the enigmatic samples laid out before him, he's made quite possibly the most intelligent breaks track to step off the Death Proof gang-plank yet. Brace yourself for the breakdown!
Next we have the American techno-geist Lightknife, hitting us with a true lazer show of a track, booming electro-techno leads the way with radiant, jaw-dropping builds & breakdowns. Prepare to peel yourself off the ceiling!
Parisian Mellow, long-time contributor of fellow French phenoms Air, Alex Gopher and Etienne De Crécy's Superdiscount, surprises us with a handsome and inspiring piece of psychedelic electronica: bass guitars, wailing sitar-sounding undercurrents and a massive lead electric guitar take over to great effect. It has to be heard to be believed!
And last but by no means least, American tech-funker Stephen Cole hits 'Blanked' like it didn't see it coming. Taking the original clean off its feet, he's churned out a gargantuan remix: booming bass and kicks are surrounded by a twitching conga rhythm, stabs flare through out and a haunting vocal arrangement surrounds you from every angle!
