DNA sequencing – the 454 method

74promo

I’m making a bit of a leap here. Deep 454 is the forthcoming deep techno release from Sean Ray on Bullet:Dodge. 454 is a DNA sequencing method and given dance music’s love of futurology, I’m assuming that’s what underlies it*. Anyhow, this is a rather good release.

Deep techno’s not something you come across too often. Sean Ray’s summary of himself is “Award winning DJ/Producer and actor (SAG-AFTRA)” but I guess if you live in LA you have to be constantly promoting/hyping. The original track is a great mix of tribal drums, a bit of house piano and a rolling attitude. Has just enough acid to make this something you’d want to hear in a club.

The track comes with three different remixes. MGUN takes it on a deep space trip, with the accent on trippy. More of a home listening effort but fine nonetheless. Space DJZ (ex-Bandulu) and Mr O come together for a proper acid techno track. All serious face and sounding oddly dated. The final remix is from Gareth Whitehead, who makes the most of the deepness inherent in the trach by going for a proper chilled deep house remix. This is a lovely remix. Pre-order.

@Ctel even further down the serendipitous rabbit hole via DNA sequencing – this song is about my son who was born at 4:54am

Blurb: Bulletdodge’s next instalment comes from US producer Sean Ray, delivering a single called ‘Deep 454’ with three superb remixes from MGUN, Space DJz & Mr O, and Gareth Whitehead, released on 7th April. Sean’s original track is a deep affair, heralding sparkling pads and grooving percussion.  The track is cemented by a dark yet infectious piano riff and soulful bassline to make it a dancefloor classic.
 
First up on remix duties is UR’s very own newcomer MGUN.  MGUN has been taking the scene by storm lately with some incredible productions and his take on Sean’s ‘Deep 454’ is no exception.  For this remix he has provided us with a Detroit infused gem of a track, with soulful pads and an upfront kick to create nothing short of a masterpiece. For the next remix we have an exciting collaboration between techno stalwarts, Space DJz and one half of Detroit Grand Pubahs, Mr O.  Their joint venture has produced a deep techno monster with a solid bassline and hypnotic use of the pads that shouts out 5am madness.
 
Lastly to remix ‘Deep 454’ is Bulletdodge’s head honcho Gareth Whitehead who has created a more old-school, stripped back, deep house vibe.  His tight drum programming and clever usage of the original track’s pads and piano riff rounds this perfect package off very nicely
