Dustin Nantais - Arm Bar (THR008).
Including remixes by Kostas Georgoudis, Pow! Pow!, "Throwing Under" original mix and Dustin's Sunshine Across Troy remix.
(Available December 23, 2013)
Dustin Nantais' "Arm Bar" EP is his second release on Trojan House Records. His debut EP "American Greed" was supported by Maya Jane Coles, Richie Hawtin, Stacey Pullen, Luciano, Dubfire, Joyce Muniz, Amine Edge and more!
Arm Bar EP is a shade darker house than Dustin's previous release. The driving core of his original mix, is the vibrating fusion between the drums, and the forceful bass line. With twisted vocal samples, evolving chord stabs, and tension building swashes blending nicely, it's the xylophone melody adorning the mix that will transform the dance floor into a dreamy hypnotic state.
Kostas Georgoudis takes his remix in a different direction from the original, and delivers a thumping, deep house, jacking mix. Even with plenty of synthy goodness, and the addition of cool hip-hop style vocals, it's the fat-ass groovy low end here that will have you out of your seat.
The Pow! Pow! remix of Arm Bar is a real journey track. Atmospheric, synthy, creepy, loud, dark, techy, driving and twisted! It is constantly building and evolving, never letting up, or hinting what to expect next. Definitely one for the darker dance floors- darker in both soul, and the absence of light!
Dustin Nantais original mix of Throwing Under is a driving, tech-fueled stomper. With its powerful groove, electronic fills, and epic breakdown, this is a cut for those later nights and early mornings still sweating on the floor.
Throwing Under (Dustin's Sunshine Across Troy Mix) is a down tempo groovy houser, with a chunky and chuggy low end. It has a laid back cruisey vibe to it that resonates from the bottom of its drums, to the top of its synthy stabs.
