Impulsion – The Higher Trip EP

Blimey. This has got some pedigree. DJ Pierre and a duo with half of the Micronauts come together to produce an epic track for which the simple designation of House is inadequate.

Impulsion is Christophe Monier (The Micronauts) with DJ Pascal R. Their new track The Trip has an epic 15 min remix from DJ Pierre that takes in classic House, disco, wild pitch and acid. Quite a ride. That there are two remixes from Kings of Tomorrow feels almost redundant after that. But, for completeness, the remixers are of the Higher track. The Ghetto mix is soulful garage and the Sanjay Dub is a jazzier take.


Blurb: Impulsion is a side project of Christophe Monier (aka The Micronauts) in duet with DJ Pascal R, active during the 90s. United by their common love of house music, from the deepest to the more acid, the two producers have asked some prominent representatives of the genre to remix their songs. Following a remastering that brought them to the standard of today, these tracks are reissued November 26 on Micronautics. “The Trip” has a fierce and epic remix by DJ Pierre. A native of Chicago, this living legend whose real name is Nathaniel Pierre Jones is the inventor of acid house, wild pitch and afro acid. It is also by hearing early acid tunes produced by DJ Pierre (Phuture “Acid Trax”, “Slam!”, etc.) that Christophe and Pascal irrevocably fell into electronic music. “Higher” is remixed by Kings Of Tomorrow, who give two interpretations with their warm signature sound and elastic groove. Kings Of Tomorrow are among the best garage producers in New York and wrote numerous standards of the genre (“Finally”, “Set My Spirit Free”, “Let It Go”, “Ancestors”, “Tear It Up”…). “’ouse Musiq” is a rare Impulsion track, featured here in its original mix. It blends two of our major influences, deep and acid house, and foreshadows today’s bass music.
