Brothers Danny and Kieran Clancy continue their run of highly infectious, club-centric singles, releasing once again on their own Krankbrother imprint which has built up a consistent catalogue of music since the label’s inception in 2015.
“Dreamscape” may share the name of legendary 90s raves, but here, Krankbrother lay out an understated house groove driven by its melodious bass and supple chords. Gradually picking up the energy by deploying contagious acid lines, celestial vocal refrains, and ramping up the drums with crisp open hats and transposing rides, it’s a feel good track and mood lifter of the highest order.
Hotly tipped producer, Fort Romeau, is enlisted on remix duties, off the back of stellar singles, remixes and albums for the likes of Futureboogie, Spectral Sound, Running Back and Ghostly International. Rolling house beats get wrapped up in those gorgeous pads as the remix takes on a transcendental twist as the 303s worm around the arrangement, the hushed female vox providing a big wall of succulent sound that provides a great alternate take on the original mix.
A respectful nod to the past is ever present in the Krankbrother’s productions, but with a production aesthetic that keeps things fresh and relevant for the most discerning of modern dancefloors. This is most evident in “Disappear Here”; lush and ample pads set a familiar tone as high strings and a nimble lead riff usher in a killer breakbeat, accentuated with a contagious bassline and sub bass booms. Sun rising vibes if ever there was!!
