Everybody’s darling DJ and producer Mark Bailey – aka MAN2.0 (SXDNS081/FREEDL002) – is back on Paisley Dark, this time to bring to life, finally, his first EP on the cool British label (his previous appearances were in the role of a remixer). For the occasion, Mark cooked an(other) Acid & Dark cut: “Red Shift” is a dance-floor-oriented Techno-meets-Dark-Disco cut presenting exactly the kind of sonority expected from Mr. Two Point Zero. On the remix calling, an impressive selection of pure blood artists: Tronik Youth (SXDNS050), Steady State, Bedford Falls Players, The Machine Soul, Jezebell, and Mindbender. Each one of them engaged with the release in their best shape, providing extremely insightful takes on an already powerful theme.
Premiered here, Sir Neil Parnell’s remix transports “Red Shift” from its sort of progressive and melodic environment to a more aggressive and frenzied terrain. If you are familiar with Tronik’s work, you know how he (and his following) likes it. Infusing heavy doses of fat arpeggiated synth layers and some immoral acidity plus a filthy bassline, Neil provided one of the most intricate versions of the release.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
