2AMFM - Starfist Lazerbeam / Passion Of A Night (Limited Purple)
This is the limited edition purple vinyl version, 100 copies pressed, mailorder only!
For the first release in the Valley Of Shadows Series Creme teams up with fellow Dutch label M>O>S aka Masters Of Sound to release JTC's and D'Marc Cantu's asteoblasting 2AM/FM project, which has long been affiliated with both labels.
Here comes an interesting collaborative release between powerhouse labels MOS Deep and Crème Organization, an idea which was born during a roadtrip to Paris by Aroy Dee & DJ TLR. The artists behind the two tracks are Michigan duo 2 AM/FM aka JTC & D'Marc Cantu who have previously hooked up on Spectral Sound, Crème Organization and MOS Deep.
'Starfist Lazerbeam' is the first cut and is a slow, purposeful house track run through with a slithering, laser like synth that constantly changes shape. Muffled, filtered vocals are hidden behind and the arpeggiated line eventually lets up and gets a little funky as the icy percussion ticks on. It’s a real pressure-building track with curveball melodies that are as beautiful as they are weird. On the flip, 'Passion' has raw analogue drums, ticking his and trippy melodies all dancing round each other in old school Chicago fashion. A nimble bassline also dances around the mix, bring with it lots of energy, stylish funk and a real sense of playfulness. As always from these great producers, this is a fascinating release.
