Vince Watson - Planet Funk (Marco Resmann Remix) by Poker Flat Recordings published on 2014/01/30 10:16:28 +0000 It's fair to say that Vince Watson is a true unsung hero of house and techno. The Glasgow born producer and DJ has been making genre-defining and genre-bending records for almost 20 years, with highly celebrated releases on labels such as Planet E, Tresor, Delsin, Ibadan and his own Bio Music. Now living in Amsterdam, Planet Funk is Vince's first outing on Poker Flat. The lead track is a confident slice of twisted machine funk, highly charged yet otherworldly in atmosphere - as the title suggests. Luna City Express' Marco Resmann takes his remix into deeper territories, yet maintains the crisp, full production vales of the original nicely. Watson's control over tension and dynamics is exceptional, and he exhibits this again on 'Paradise' - an elegant tech house bomb that interweaves multiple complex elements yet remains singularly affecting. 'Free Yourself' hints at Watson's love for ambience and electronica - a thoughtful trip into the outer reaches that will sound just as good on a beach at sunrise as in the headphones in the darkest hours of winter.
