Stats for this track
The mysterious 80s-obsessed electronic producer, Michal Cassette has been celebrated for adding a warm, modern production sheen to nostalgic electronic sounds. Championed by DJs like Laurent Garnier, Eric Prydz and James Zabiela and picking up reviews by trend-setting blogs and dance music bibles, Michael Cassette’s debut album ‘Temporarity’ has already been celebrated in DJmagazine for “perfectly nailing an unashamedly eighties vibe with a flair and intelligence that few can muster, and without any hint of saccharine sentimentality”.
The lead single from said album, ‘Ghost In The Machine’ is a perfect example of Cassette’s well-honed union of bright 80s-styled synths, immaculate colour loaded arrangement and tight electronic grooves.
Adding a darker, more driving contrast, Komytea’s remix is a racier, techno-charged affair with gripping bass grooves and hypnotic techno ticks building to two breakdowns that add eerie, eccentric shades to the original’s neon melodies.
