From euphoric chords, to hip hop vocals via acid house and lots of big room bass, DJ HERO flexes his musical muscles this year. The 5 EPs, all featuring a mix of original new tracks and re-edits of Ground Level back catalogue, will also be joined by a mix album on iTunes later this year, combining the tracks from the EPs with DJ Hero’s previous remixes for Ground Level.
EP1 contains two tracks featured on US breaks legend Baby Anne’s mix “Bad Baby.” First up comes the VIP of D-Bot, a collaboration with Baby Anne, combining chords ripped apart with a chainsaw and lashes of robotic bass and wobbles.
Next up is Kickin It, a fusion of breaks and broken house, with a huge chord sequence and dirty dutch lead hook. Kickin It gets the remix treatment from DJ Hero himself who slows the tempo down into a moombahton stomper. The re-rub ends up working every bit as well as this tempo as at the original.
Grab the EP on beatport, but before you do, check out the free downloads.
Oh, and anyone around waaaaaaaaay back in the day will get a kick out of this.
