Premiere: The Oddness – Momentum (Jamie Stevens Drummer Dub) [Beat & Path]
Following on from his debut EP, ‘Breathing Fire’ on Beat & Path they welcome back The Oddness for his second EP ‘Momentum’. The last 6 months have seen this artist making waves across the world with his signature slow-burning downtempo electronica sounds infused with dub and world music all laced with his characteristic chugging basslines. With recent releases and remixes on Pipe & Pocket, Shango Records and Hidden Vibes, the label present one original plus two remixes from Jamie Stevens.
The original takes us on an almost space-rock rollercoaster ride through organic chants and a deep, surging bassline. Following on from his debut ‘Weigh Up’ EP on Beat & Path, Jamie Stevens steps up the plate and delivers two outstanding remixes, the first being the ‘In Excess’ remix that touches on his early roots from the 3 piece live electronic group Infusion. A mechanical, almost machine-like style percussion is laid over a bass groove, laced with an infectious1980s INXS-style snare hit. On the second version, Jamie takes the listener on a drummer’s dream ride with carefully programmed drums, shakers, tambourines, and hats. We trust you will find something on this release that suits your rekordbox for any occasion.
Today we are premiering the Drummer Dub from Jamie Stevens, our favorite from the package.
PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE for The Oddness ‘Momentum’ (inlc. Jamie Stevens Remixes) EP on Beat & Path. Release date: June 10
