It turns out my son and DYLAN RHYMES have something in common. They like to Kapow! While my son’s version initiates from his love of jumping, and yelling “kapow” whenever he does it, this upcoming track from Dylan will add even more excitement when we’re getting some air time at home.
‘Kemptown’ is a full blooded, roof raising slice of electro tech madness with the trademark Dylan Rhymes production providing the perfect base for Decoders off the hook vocals. Distorted, twisted synths mesh with a solid rhythm track and driving percussion to create and energy filled vortex of a record that draws in all in it’s path.
Alongside the original version, there is a dub for those that prefer things vocal free, and then there are the remixes. First in the saddle is fellow tech funk legend and co-label owner Mark Pember AKA Meat Katie who strips things back and turns in a searing slab of techno in his own inimitable style. Bringing the vocal to the fore over sparse sections of the back tracking before cutting in with an intense barrage of rough riffs this mix is bound to create dancefloor devastation wherever it’s dropped. Next up we have Barcelona based DJ Memo. A regular fixture on the Spanish festival scene he found himself playing alongside Dylan Rhymes some years ago and now joins the Lot49 team to provide this full bore cut and paste re-edit that is a superb addition to the package. The penultimate mix comes from London Swede Peo de Pitte who chops into the original and creates a bouncing groove laden version that is sure to please breaks and house heads alike. Finally we have awesome Sharooz who shows that he more than lives up to the hype with this outstanding production. A great mix that draws out the parts into seven minutes of wonderfully atmospheric electro tinged house.
