For NVR064 Nu Venture Records present a collaborative EP from 2 double NVR release artists Linear and Aardonyx. A project created through the desire to work with other artists and experiment with new sounds, with the end result being the following EP. Aardonyx are on remix duties for NVR055, Linear's 3 track Maze EP, whilst Linear takes on the remixes for NVR052: Aardonyx - To Tulum / The Ghost. Also including a VIP Mix of Linear's track Fundamental Funk.
[A] Linear - Fundamental Funk (VIP Mix):
A long time in waiting Linear's eagerly anticipated VIP mix of Fundamental Funk finally sees the light of day. Turning the track into the dance floor heavyweight that the original always hinted it had the potential to be. Adding more power to the bassline and increasing the high end energy, ensuring there's no waiting around with this freshly rejuvenated track.
[B] Linear - Anthem At Dusk (Aardonyx Remix):
The introduction begins with light percussion whilst staying true to the arrangement of the original from Linear. At the drop, with a real striking contrast to the more delicate original, a much darker and unrecognisable beast is unleashed. Stuttering haunting pads give prominence to the fast and heavy bass line, all accompanied by gritty growling overtones, which echo the deep and snarly bass notes. Don't be fooled by the tranquility of the intro this is a track designed to command the dancefloor.
[C] Aardonyx - To Tulum (Linear Remix):
Linear takes the original from the Aardonyx duo and strips it back to its bare bones. Intertwining the melodies and vocals of the original, to create a minimal stepper which builds on it's simple and techy drum patterns throughout. A truly accomplished remix more than capable of getting the sub bass rolling.
[D] Linear - Fundamental Funk (Aardonyx Remix):
From the off through the use of a muted drum beat, you can tell the Aardonyx duo have definitely flipped the script on this remix, taking the track in a completely new direction altogether. Complex percussion and melodic pads, compliment and help to create a more rolling feel, while still incorporating the original Linear synths.
[E] Aardonyx - The Ghost (Linear Remix):
Linear's remix of this haunting track sees the young producer show his interpretation of halftime Drum & Bass as he takes on the sub genre for the first time. With a hip hop inspired beat and deep, but saturated rumbling basses, it's a powerful take on the original from start to finish. Following on from his To Tulum Remix, Linear creates another track able to test the capabilities of any sound system.
[F] Linear - Maze (Aardonyx Remix):
The final Aardonyx remix bounces along with staccato bass interlaced with sharp growling stabs and sweeps. Maintaining the sound palette of the original but with an increased speed and altered swing to create a fresh take on it. Dark and sinister it showcases the similarities between the Linear and Aardonyx sound which helped to inspire this remix project.
