Alan Svartr – Diamond Fluff
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.
