B. Dirty Fours’ Mix
Nubreed isn’t that new anymore to the world. ‘One Day,’ not long ago, few far in between knew the group Nubreed. Simply an Aussie connection only, but then it happened. Word spread across like wildfire as the group was known as one of the liveliest dance acts to come out from down under (and their singles weren’t too shabby as well). Time didn’t stand still as their sounds have infiltrated many of the finest dj sets around the globe and these three gentlemen have helped drive the sounds of Australian underground music to the masses. Masters of the broken beat world, this triangle constantly pushes for innovation and creativity in their music. Three equal minds with the belief that music can cross boarders.
With this release, we hear remixes from Aussie brother Luke Chable and the boys’ alter ego The Dirty Fours.
Luke Chable does his business like only he can. His “Extension Mix” is simply lush. As breaks are the order of the day, we find that Luke delivers as always. A breezy trip into the wild world of big room breaks side-by-side with all those bubbly melodies we all love about the man. What says intact from the original is the main melody of the flute, keeping this song floating on air. DB’s vocals are quite graceful and the storm never gets too destructive for its own good. As DB tells you that “the choice is yours…start today, don’t leave it to faith” gives the song an uplifting vocal transcript. When the breakdown arrives, it quickly sinks, piling the echoing keys to warp for the return of the vocals, collapsing the wall, revealing this day will continue on.
The alter ego of Nubreed, the “Dirty Fours’ Mix” is more basic, more subtitle, and more focus on the fundamentals of House music. The vocals get more attention in their mix than Luke’s. Subtitle in its attack, the track works slowly to build the groove with all its secondary sounds in the backdrop while keeping the main melody in the foreground that creates a sense of downbeat body heat dancing. Allowing the keys to express its hypnotic notes when DB asks you to “just listen” fits the lyrics incredibly well. Very groovy and uplifting in its own right, the boys never rush the track to explode on the dance floor, but instead they keep the vibe simmering until dawn.
Two quality mixes that will get the crowd cheering all night. This is defiantly one reason to pick up the full-length album if you haven’t heard it yet.
