Aisher’s 2 Thousand and Six remix of 'Dirtbox’ is clearly the better of the two, adding a deep-end progressive beat to the original synths. Chunky yet fluent drums and heavy builds and breakdowns dominate in a cut that should cross over to more mainstream audiences, but is far from commercial. Played by Hernan Cattaneo, this mix is a bass-driven, booty-shaking affair that's an ideal crowdpleaser. It’ll appeal to house DJs who like to finish with something uber-groovy yet slightly driving and progressive.
The Vocal Duke mix of ‘I Want Your Love’, although a truly kicking house track with clean cut basslines and smooth vocals, doesn't feel as though it's been touched up much from the original. Still, it’s a recipe for mid-floor movement: enticing male vocals, bouncing bongos, and a subtle techno build over the traditional but funky bassline. This one will fit nicely into the peak of your set, oozing a sexiness that makes you want to see people dancing to it – it’s an instant kick that leaves an intoxicating buzz.
This is a solid release for Bedrock as it provides those rolling deep basslines that make progressive so enticing. Combined with the easy vocals and unique riffs, Gutterstylz delivers a fresh take on progressive house music which might just be ready to get back the once mammoth crowds it reeled in.
Another captivating and quality release from Bedrock.
