It was at the end of last year that Gary Burrows made an impressive debut with two tracks (“You & Me” and “Why Can’t We See?”) on the “Prospekt EP01” compilation. Around that time, Spektre was already hammering “All Your Dreams” in their livesets and podcasts, which was destined to be released on their label as well. It was a bit of a wait, but now the highly anticipated track finally sees the light of day. It comes with a remix by Ukrainian producer Yan Oxygen and an additional track by the British producer as well. I’m very excited to share this release and I hope you’ll like it just as much!
Opening track “All Your Dreams” is a thundering track that’s firing on all cylinders. Gary uses a combination of oldskool vocal samples and a chilling arpeggio that’s been made out of the hardest of materials. The underlying, distorted bass, which materializes and vanishes at certain intervals, adds to the rave portion of the track and cements it all together. In just five minutes, this high energy festival track will manage to lift your spirits and get your heart pounding at a rapid pace.
Yan Oxygen brings the listener into deeper territories with his remix of the title track. While the changes made to “All Your Dreams” aren’t revolutionary, the softer percussion, the slowed down main riff and the additional pads definitely bring a certain calmness to the track. In the process, the track has also lost some of its momentum, which is a bit unfortunate. This could’ve been avoided by a less drastic BPM change.
Final track “Koda” shows a completely different side of the British producer. Even to the point that I wonder if I’m actually listening to a new Shelley Johannson production. This isn’t a bad thing, of course, for this deep track with its ominous vocals definitely speaks to the senses. The percussion is soft, yet still energetic and provides something for everyone on the dancefloor.
“All Your Dreams” is out now on Respekt Recordings.
