WORDS BY AZEAN OF DYNE ROAD RECORDINGS
Grammy nominated DJ and producer, ADAM FREELAND, holds a very special place in our collective hearts, thanks to his nonconformist approach to music production. Never one to be pigeon-holed into a certain genre, Freeland has dabbled in many facets of electronica over the past two decades, although always coming home to his roots in cinematic house and thumping breakbeat. With his astute eye largely focused on syncs for film, television and video games, as well as his much-lauded label imprint MARINE PARADE, the rare occasion that Freeland releases a remix of a new track, like Klangkarussell’s Netzwerk (Falls Like Rain) for example, is a pretty big deal.
With accentuated bass, percussion and synth loops a few bpm’s down from the original version, Freeland’s rework of Klangkarussell’s “Netzwerk” is the perfect groove to get lost in on the dance floor, or during the after hours of a festival just before the sun rises – when your body still wants to move as your mind slowly slips in to rest mode. In short, it’s as expertly produced and blissfully chugging as we’ve come to expect from Freeland, and has left us shouting “more, more, more..”.
Out July 20th.
