Coming straight off the back of their Selador debut on the recent Showcase Compilation with their track ‘Armanus’, Mexican production team Chaty, Tamez & Gabriel I return with their first fully fledged single release for the label, the ‘My Escape’ EP. Something of a sister piece to ‘Armanus’, the title track is a slice of brooding modern electronic house, full of eastern promise and melancholic textures. With it’s distinctive lead Virus synth and Turkish flavoured inflections, it feels like the love child of a Dixon DJ set back to back with Sasha.
It also comes with two remixes. The first, a big room monster from Selador’s very own Dave Seaman who utilises the original’s the lead riff to great effect whilst adding some driving, hypnotic, wonky percussion and a vocal sample so disguised you’ll never guess it in a million years. Next up is fellow Mexicans, Climbers who head into deeper territory for their interpretation. Losing none of the original’s drama, they darken the mood further with a cool and confident workout that radiates sophistication. A sultry seductive beauty if ever there was one. Adding even more weight to an already hefty package, one of our favourite Berliners, Joal joins the party with a brand new remix of the trio’s aforementioned Selador debut track, ‘Armanus’. Also taking the deeper route, Joal works his magic with flurries of surging arpeggio adding intensity to the ethereal eastern flavours over a relentlessly solid groove. On top of all this there’s even a bonus track too and not just any old token thing that the guys found lying about on their hardrive. ‘Honest Perversion’ could easily have been a single in it’s own right! Yet another expertly crafted piece of electronic dance that as beautiful as it is deadly.
