Global pioneer Dubfire lands on Crosstown Rebels for the first time this February, also featuring the legendary Carl Craig and the enchanting vocals of Kate Elsworth, they combine to create the captivating Lotus.
“Being one of my favourite DJs, Damian has been a good friend for years, who also happens to run one of the most ground-breaking record labels out there. Not only have I always wanted to do something for the label, but also with my mentor Carl Craig. This was hatched on a sunny January day in Los Angeles and features the beautiful voice of Australian Kate Elsworth, something a bit deeper than I am known for, but just as emotionally powerful.” Dubfire
Lotus opens with a delicate bassline, textures of atmospheric synth are introduced as the sensual whispers of Kate Elsworth fade in, her stunning vocals gradually become more prominent, before all the unique elements of subtlety come together. On the dub version, hypnotising chords blend with a functional groove, retaining the mystical romance of the original, it will translate this magic to the dancefloor. Recently picked up by Damian Lazarus for a release on Crosstown sister label Rebellion, Tibi Dabo adds his style of deep melancholy and spirited percussion to the remix.
