“Synergetic” hits us right off the bat with tight maracas and an echoed stab until the, very groovy, electric bass line kicks in. A soft pad seeps thru at 1:30 adding warmth and dynamics. Shortly after, a break kicks in as a hip cowbell is laced into the hook working itself until a soft pad with tight percussion and a background loop build to 4 minutes. The sequence is switched around a bit for a change of pace, breaking down, until the bass line kicks back in on a different melody destroying all dance floors. A true magic carpet ride.
Martinez, needing no intro, gives us a more minimal groove for his remix on the flip side. Starting with a simple loop for the first minute, he hits us with a distant cowbell brought in with a crunched up vocal. A riding bass line and guitar rhythms soon enter in the background, building into a sweet break with just the kick and bass line. At 3 minutes everything comes back in bridging until 4 minutes when a sweep sets off a paddy back loop. This loop creates more dynamics and frenzy building until the last break and crescendo -- awesome for the minimal monster in you.
