Jeremy Rowlett makes his welcome return to JOOF Recordings with this misty EP. ‘Pitch Black’s is an incredibly authentic and attractive slab of deep progressive music. The darkness in this track is divinely wreathed together with a aggressive bassline, haunting atmospheres, and warlike percussion. On remix duties we have Phase Difference, who adds a more driving and trancy touch whilst still managing to keep within the dark motif of the original.
Hemstock & Jennings have astutely forged a sound that’s gracious, tribal, and hypnotic. This is the sound we fashion at JOOF Aura, a forward-thinking breach from the mainstream that’s aimed purely at the dancefloor, this release is testament to this. On remix duties you’ll find Andromedha with his ‘Beyond Space’ remix who touches Zulu with a much spacier and hypnotic sound, adding his elegance and finesse to the track.
John 00 Fleming is a man with whose electronic music career has been equal parts industrious and illustrious. Now spanning two decades or more, he’s been the driving mix-force behind music compilations, now too numerous to count and – for the larger part – a steadfast advocate of ‘the singles school’ of music release.
M.I.K.E. Push needs no introduction, he’s a legend to the Trance scene and contributed so much to the wonderful Trance world that we know today. Over the past few years he moved into a slightly different musical space, but label boss knows Mike very well, their friendship spans over two decades and he asked Mike to dip back into those underground Trance roots and make a track for JOOF. He absolutely nailed it and delivered this beast of a track aimed squarely for those heads down, dark room moments. To slip that icing on the top, Moon Tripper delivered a Psy Trance remix that has to be his best work today to date.
