The Mono Sound

phrenology

One of my total favourite tracks of the last couple of years gets a rework. Mono Life takes his tool box to dark house track The Mono Sound (is it really only 18 months since this was released?) to give us a 2015 revamp.

The original is very early 90s dark prog house, owing much to Orbital and Spooky (especially the track Stereo). A real club track combining a sense of darkness with counterbalancing ascending chords of euphoria. This never fails to bring a smile to my face. For the 2015 version, the drums of the original intro give way to a more orchestral setting. The track then waits before those wonderful chords arrive and delivering a sense of release. It’s richer than the original and perhaps a little more knowing.

2015 remaster

“Remastered version of ‘The Mono Sound’ taken from the album PHRENOLOGY: A RETROSPECTIVE due out on Mono Sound Records very soon…”
