Label: Digital Society Recordings
The mighty Digital Society continues its output with the fresh new single from Fast Distance. Called Alpine, it contains two mixes from Karanda and one from Paul Pearson. Here we go.
This is more epic work from Fast Distance with a rough and ready structure and epic kickdrums and a cool melodic tone. The main riff, a guitar, is surprising, I must admit, but its a cool, somewhat pleasant, surprise. Yeah, I dig this. I dig this a lot. One of the nicest DS releases in a while.
The remixes then and Karanda provide two; the first being the Intro mix, which opened CD2 of Digitally Enhanced Volume 5. An icy, theatre-like, opening for a melodic progressive re-rub which, as the track builds, becomes a bit more aggressive but not overly so. The main remix, without the intro, is next and is shorter; built for middle of sets, I think. Sweet enough but not as good as the intro mix.
Finally, Paul Pearson drops a more straight-forward mix for your ears. Heading straight for the feet, it kicks and grooves its way around a cool and melodic body. A cool end for the mix package, I think. For me though, it is the Original Mix that wins out but the overall package is well produced.
