Alan Svartr – Diamond Fluff

Alan Svartr Diamond Fluff 22 Digit
The latest here from northeast UK-based 22 Digit, who probably don't get as much love on here as they deserve.

It comes from label stalwart Alan 'Unpronouncable Name' Svartr, and features two tracks in four mixes. Diamond Fluff itself is a perfectly acceptable little chugger in its original form, deep and a little bit wonky around the edges, but the track really comes to life when handed over to fellow northeastern lad Martijn, whose remix transforms it into a dark and menacing deep/tech bass monster.

That's the highlight of the EP for me, if I'm being honest, but you also get two rubs of Low Rider: the original's a slightly ploddy deep/tech cut with a funny little Star Trek siren sound buried deep in the mix, while the YokoO Remix rides more straight-up 4/4s and has a slightly slo-mo disco feel.

But like I said, to these ears it's all about the Martijn remix here.

Out: This week
