London based artist G Flame steps up on No.19 Music for a stellar new single backed
with remixes from DJ Sneak and Mella Dee. G Flame aka Cisco Ferreira, who was one
half of The Advent with Mr G, is something of an unheralded legend.
He has a rich musical history dating back to London’s House & Techno scene of the
nineties which saw him play a key part in the development of the genre, not only as a DJ and producer, but also as a sound engineer working for Larry Heard, Derrick May
and Adonis. Very much a clubber and dancer at heart, Ferreira was tied to Jack Tracks
Records and also released on the likes of Tresor while remixing artists such as New
Order. His understanding of how house and techno should sound and feel is second to
none, and that shines through here with the revived G Flame project, which first started
in 1997 and sounds just as essential today. ‘Broken’ is a previously undiscovered gem
dug out from G Flame’s vital vault, produced in the mid-nineties, at a time when tech
house was just in its infancy and G Flame was pioneering the sound. He calls his style
house-techno on account of house being his main vibe, but the tempos tending more
towards techno, which makes his tracks perfect weapons for DJs. The buzzing low
frequencies of ‘Broken’ burrow deep into your brain while techno drums and tight,
twisted percussion and synths drive home the groove, it’s powerful and original stuff
and truly timeless. The first of the two remixes comes from original house gangster
and production heavyweight DJ Sneak, who takes things into deeper, hypnotic territory
with his superb ‘Banger Dub’. Finally, UK talent and Warehouse Music boss Mella Dee
joins the fray with a masterful slice of dubbed out and understated house music in the
form of his ‘Shape Up’ mix
