Desolat’s Loco Dice joins the roster of Martinez Brothers Cuttin’ Headz label this April with
‘$lammer’, backed with a remix from Detroit Techno veteran DJ T-1000.
Düsseldorf’s Loco Dice has long been one of the most respected figures in contemporary electronic music with releases over the years on leading labels like Cocoon, Cadenza, Ovum and of course his own Desolat as well as a heavy touring schedule taking him across the globe year in year out. Here though we see Dice offering up his new single courtesy of Cuttin’ Headz, a platform the Martinez Brothers and associates to deliver high octane, dance floor focused House and Techno.
The original mix of title track ‘$lammer’ leads with spiralling brass like bass tones, flute licks, shuffled shakers and resonant synth hooks running alongside a bumpy bass line and an amalgamation of heady, processed vocal lines.
Following is Detroit’s DJ T-1000 stepping up on remix duties, stripping back the aesthetic of the original to lay focus on robust rhythms and various vocal refrains from the original whilst chugging bass and tension building atmospherics gradually unfold throughout.
Loco Dice’s ‘$lammer’ is out on Cuttin’ Headz 21st (Vinyl) and 27th (Digital) April 2018.
