2021 has been a monster year for Vince Watson with releases on Get Physical, Tronic, SushiTech, All Day I Dream, his own Everysoul Audio and a host of remixes.
But now Vince ends the year and takes things up a notch to bring his label’s biggest and most adventurous release to date : ‘DnA [re]Sequenced’ and on this we present the [re]Sequenced Sampler – 3 brand new mixes from the DnA album by Vince himself, as a taster for the album being released next month, which features Carl Craig, Claude Young, Jon Dixon, Steve Rachmad, John Beltran, Shawn Rudiman, Stephen Lopkina nd Stephen Brown.
After the massive response and high sales of his 18 track ‘DnA’ album in 2019, Vince had a vision of having the some of the tracks remixed by his favourite Detroit ‘flavoured’ artists from the three places that musically have made it all possible for him: Scotland, Amsterdam, Detroit.
‘Universal Language’ departs the original’s electro territory and heads for the dancefloor in a smooth house version destined to be in the playlists of Detroit heads who like grooves and melodies just the way Detroit House can deliver.
‘First Wave’ goes in the opposite direction, taking the hi-tech sounds of Gratiot Avenue and heading into electro territory, creating a fusion just as powerful as the original track with its jazzy hats and futuristic sounds.
Finally, ‘Fourth Wave’ goes into sci-fi space territory and takes the original track into the mysterious wall of sound that Vince has been known to make for many years, with multiple synth lines to keep you hearing new things with each listen.
A stellar taste of what’s to come.
‘DnA [re]Sequenced is a monster of an album that does not come along very often, with such heavyweights all on board and is certain to get the attention is richly deserves.
2022 will see more DnA [re]Sequences from more established artists, as well as new Detroit material from Vince.
