Sybel – Hyper Dimension
New release on Kinetika Records from Sybel, a Miami-based DJ. This release sits somewhere around the tech house / techno border. All very Plastikman. Go for the Adam Curtain remix.
The original mix is sort of techno. But it’s a very Germanic, straight-faced affair. All very precision engineered. Quite leans towards tech house. A bit lacking in feeling.
The B side is a remix by the UK’s Adam Curtain, who is new to me. He cuts the track down to size by lopping off 3 minutes. But critically he adds in a welcome dose of acid. This makes the tech influence trippy, rather than samey. Doesn’t quite batter you with beats as you might expect, which gives it a just-back-from-Ibiza feel. Quality remix.
Blurb: Recently voted one of Miami’s top DJs, Sybel delivers a drum heavy techno assault that is sure to rumble dance floors from coast to coast! On board to handle the remix is Nottingham’s Adam Curtain (VIVa Music), who gives us his Drop of Acid rework. All presented to you by the Brooklyn (NY) tech house label Kinetika Records!
