The opening piece for this four-track single starts with Soopertrack. Bass heavy with slight percussions as the bass frequencies interchange from time-to-time. The Border Community standard of music, if it’s not deep and heavy, then it’s not the sound of BC. It’s a bit surprising that so many producers sound so much like Holden these days, or is it that Holden sounds like so many of the producers that he signs to his label? Whatever the case may be, his sanctuary is providing some much needed sounds to dance to.
It wouldn’t be a BC release without tools for the dj to play with, so you’ll find the Soopertrack Tool also on the main-side. Here, you’ll hear cleaner bass lines with the drum kick tighten up for good measure. Like a ping-pong recoiling back and forth, the tool works slowly, as the building blocks forms its way. A five minute piece that at times sounds as though it moves no where, but for the dj, that’s exactly what you need to play without worrying about keys or notes clashing.
The second original track found is Zu Fuss. A bit madding with its clicks and hollow snares, as it’s creepy, almost as though it’s trying to scare you. It isn’t Halloween is it? This is not dance music, but it’s engaging. Extrawelt’s soundtrack scoring pushes the line where electronic music breaks away from dance music entirely.
With the Mutter Mix of Zu Fuss, this dark ambient piece resonates beauty found in darkness. Ghostly vocals begin clear, yet, it soon vanishes away and the violins work in great effect, giving the remix a somber tone.
Another fine release from Border Community as the label continues to establish itself as THE alternative to traditional dance music.
