A demo by Luke Brancaccio sent last summer to Yousef has encouraged the Circus Recordings label owner to take yet another music sidestep in his imprints repertoire, Yousef felt there was almost nothing like it in modern day house and techno. It’s an intriguing, hypnotic and emotive ride, culminating in the boldest of statements, WAKE UP!! (Is it aimed at the crowd or the world in general thought Yousef)
‘Wake Up’ is a composition of contrasts. A pulsating three-time bass-line, un-nerving horns, skidding cellos, eerie atmospheric shards of disturbance, and shimmering arpeggios that weave through a lattice of overdriven glistening analogue spirals, all combine to lull you into a false sense of transcendental inner-peace, only to be brought back to earth by the abrupt yell of ‘Wake Up!’
Simon Berry is owner and founder of the legendary Platipus Records, and records as Art Of Trance, one half of Union Jack and more recently has collaborated with Luke Brancaccio for the first time under his own name.
