DJ Delay // Brass Wires & Bass # 2

29 Apr

brass wire and bass 2

In the 3 years since the 1st Brass Wires & Bass album, DJ Delay has played widely across Europe, and made a few tours in Canada, Australia and the US. Highlights along the way were the Fusion (DE), Glastonbury (UK) and Exit (RS) festivals. Now it’s only fitting that the works on this second collection of remixes travel beyond Eastern Europe to include the cream of global music groups & producers. Most of the tracks were well tested & celebrated during this time by audiences across the planet.

From his Berlin studio to the rest of the world, these 13 gems take in roots music from Hungary, France, Romania, Yemen, Russia, Italy & Indonesia. There’s plenty of bass, solid dubbing, dextrous sonic manipulation, and dancefloor attractors within. All done with care in Delay’s inimitable & playful style.

Anakronik Electro Orkestra’s “Terk In America” marries dub and ska beautifully with a bass heavy and upful version with surprising twists and turns, while Watcha Clan’s beautiful version of “Im Nin’Alu” gets a full percussive future dubstep workout. Right after, the Dolomites receive a driving 8 bit bounce for their wonderful accordion rich “Queen Of The Game”. In the Berlin corner Rotfront get new sinewave-ska boots for “Sigaretta” while Stefano Miele’s “Ninna Nanna” is dubbed into outer space. Jallabanda’s version of “Czardas” swings into a Turkish night club and the Skazka Orchestra received a total club reconstruction, adding helium filled vocals to their Russian children’s tune “More”. DJ Delay himself takes a Bavarian drinking tongue twister – transporting it to a Berlin after-hours tech house party. Ever heard of Balkan / Samba bateria? Uzgin Uver and Balkan Mashina get forceful percussive Brazillian future bass workouts with plenty of bounce. DJ Click’s Doctor is a little more subtel, receiving a dancehall steppers treatment – nicely slicing, dicing and dubbing Killo Killo’s vocals. There’s a gentle wind down towards the end of the album with the second Uzgin Uver selection lounging on the sofa in a dirtier Vienna-K&D style. Winding up proceedings with Filastine’s version of “Gendjer Gendjer” – with a politically charged history, exquisitely sung by Nova, we’re treated to an epic orchestral bass soundtrack rework – complete with full choir, string and percussion sections.
