Fade records artist Royal Sapien kicks off the A side with his take of Funk Harmony Park - My truth. This track has had a number of remixes done the most notable came from the New Yorker who has turned the smooth groove of the original into a jacked up concoction of heavy broken beats and constantly moving melodies that create a mystical quality.
Conners and Klinger utilise the vocals of Fay Sephirah for Usage,creating long delays that glide over busy percussion,altering the mood with squelchy basslines and filtery,uplifting pads that push it deeper in a pleasing way.What started out as gentle vocal number continuously develops a peakier edge till the end.
The reverse side of of Sampler 2 has the essence of what Fortiers mix was about with the falling deep mix of It hits my hair from Error Error.It's probably one of the more interesting tracks from 007 with nothing but a pure tech swing to it,steeped in chunky slabs of claps and snare rolls that carve out rhythms while gurgling tweaked synth sounds beckon us not to listen more but to start moving.Its deep as hell so be warned ;)
Rounding up this package is t/he slow,eerie sound of Cooling the Plasma from Rene Breitbarth.Simple yet effective rumbling beats along with a gradual introduction of glassy synths work their way underneath .Throughout there's whispering vocals underneath that drop out near the end and picking up the pace with a more rhythmic flow.
Chris Fortier pushed things that little bit further with Balance 007 and should be listened to as a whole,creating a new sound in itself by re-editing and cutting up tracks.Spread over 3 cds its a completely interesting and educational experience.
