John Digweed and Nick Muir – Track for Life
I’m really enjoying Digweed’s releases of late. Don’t know if it’s him who has changed or me. Whichever, Track for Life is another uplifting melodic techno gem.
Track for Life is one of those tracks that creates its impact through repetition of a deep groove. It comes with a pair of remixes. Argy gives it a sense of urgency and a load of peaks. Brings it closer to trance – not always in a good way. Yousef takes the track on a more progressive path. More synthy in its approach this works as fine accompaniment to the original.
Blurb: Between them, John Digweed and Nick Muir, producers of the finest electronic dance music, have been involved in many pivotal moments in the world of club music over the years and have in many ways helped to define genres & push the boundaries further. Their partnership has been one of electronic music’s most fruitful pairings, creating a body of work that’s seen them become one of the world’s most highly regarded production duos.
“Track For Life” is another mission statement, showing that they are not resting on past laurels, but always developing their sound in an exciting direction. The low-slung, hypno-throb groove with expanding melodic flourishes is totally masterful as the track’s beguiling energy builds subtly throughout.
Remix duties fall to Argy and Yousef, two exceptional driving forces within the modern electronic dance scene, and the perfect candidates to take “Track For Life” in distinctly different and eminently exciting directions and provide fitting alternatives to the Original.
Argyris Theofilis aka Argy has a rare talent for taking audiences on musical journeys they might never have imagined, weaving sonic tapestries that defy easy categorization of genre or era. His Argy Remix ups the pace and develops “Track For Life” into an unmistakably heavyweight, pulsating, peak-time monster. Meanwhile, Yousef’s Circus Rework, locked down by a highly distinctive, tight, clanking, hip-swinging groove, is loaded with wonderful, bubbling energetic abandon. Two great remix versions of one great track, means yet another exceptional release from Bedrock.
