First ever release on Phonica Records, our own Hector teamed up with long-term friend and studio-collaborator Ben bryant for ‘Tension’.
The aptly named ‘Tension’ is a masterclass in suspense and hypnosis; a sleek, brooding techno cut which doesn’t so much attack the danceflooor as enfold it. On remix duty we’ve managed to secure Appleblim – the Skull Disco co-founder and Apple Pips boss – in partnership with Al Tourettes. Typically unconstrained by genre expectations, the duo sculpt an epic, adventurous re-version of ‘Tension’. Propelled at first by a galloping steppa’s rhythm and analogue bass stabs, soon echo-drenched vocal samples and deep dub flavours take hold, before the track climaxes in heads-down, thrillingly linear four-to-the-floor style. Hope you like it as much as we do!
