I did consider not doing any more blogging tonight, out of deference to today's loss... but the disco must go on, I guess.
With releases on four:twenty, Plastic City and several other labels in the past year, plus countless remixes, German producer Wollion is definitely an up-and-comer on the tech house scene right now. This latest offering, for Breakoutaudio, will do little to damage his burgeoning rep.
The original version of You Got comes from the deep house end of the deep/tech spectrum, with vocal snips and a raw kick that make it reminiscent of, say, an early Kerri Chandler cut on Madhouse. Fellow Germans Dualton* supply a dub that’s got more of a dark, rolling, techy vibe, as befits a track record that takes in releases for the likes of ViVA and Systematic, while Greece’s Detlef supplies a more stripped-down, more overtly techy rub.
The original is the one for me here, for sure, but it’s a strong package overall that should suit a range of DJs.
