After the huge success of their first collaboration, Doorly and El Prevost are back for part two: this time the world touring Doorly serves up a hot original that gets remixed by Red Rack‘em and El Prevost, while El Prevost also serves up an original of his own, all on his own No Speakers label. The first EP, featuring a Lee Foss remix, got support form the likes of Paco Osuna, Solomun and Groove Armada and this second instalment is set to be just as big this summer.
Doorly is a dance heavyweight who headlines clubs like Space Ibiza on his global travels, releases on Cajual, Hot Creations and Dirtybird and is no stranger to hitting high places in the charts with his big and infectious sounds. As a DJ he is energetic and can make a mark on any dance floor, and so will this new tune, ’Sonder.’ It is six superbly deep and atmospheric minutes of warm, rolling drums and searching synths that bring an intergalactic feel next to twinkling keys. Jostling percussion brings a little loose funk and the whole thing is sure to lock in dance floors.
El Prevost then steps up to remix after 15 years of putting out killer cuts on labels like Third Ear. His music has made its way into the record bags of tastemakers like Steve Bug, DJ Hell and Steffi and this excellent remix shows off his singular style again. It is a little tougher and more energetic than the original, with sprinkled hits, rumbling bass and pixelated synth lines dancing about up top.
Then comes Red Rack‘em, the Bergerac boss who had a huge hit with ‘Wonky Disco Bassline Banger’ last year. It was one of the tracks of the year and has been followed by an equally brilliant album by this esteemed house veteran. His remix here is big, bouncy and off kilter thanks to its coarse hi hats and punchy rubber drums. Great vocal treatment adds more wonkiness and broad synth strokes flesh things out into another sure-fire party starter that sounds like little else.
Last but not least, El Prevost offers up a solitary state mix of his own ‘Temper Mental’. It’s a hugely inventive track with great synth modulations burrowing deep into your brain as dancing hi hats and whirring bass encourage you to cut loose and shift freaky shapes.
This is a strong EP that really packs a punch across four standout tracks.
