Dense & Pika are back with yet another remix of a Tiga track. After taking on “Planet E” last year, they went into the archives and dug up the classic “Louder Than A Bomb” from the early 2000’s. But it’s not just remixes the British duo is known for, because they’ve also been impressing the techno scene with heavy hitters such as “Edging Forward” and their collaboration EP with Adam Beyer. But also, let’s not forget their deeper material, like “Colt” and “Lack Of Light” on Hotflush. This remix attempts to integrate elements from both worlds, which has definitely resulted in a heavy hitting and fresh sounding production.
Dense & Pika’s take on “Louder Than A Bomb” is a stripped back, dancefloor-oriented weapon that revolves around the acapella from the original production. While the use of rap vocals in techno is very unusual, it works exceptionally well in this track, for it manages to create a great rhythmic flow. While a heavy sub-bass brings some more dynamics to the track, an atmospheric pad and a repeating synth sequence are providing depth and further bring the track to life. I’d say this remix is a great, modern update of the Tiga track and I expect that it’s already being played on dancefloors around the world!
“Louder Than A Bomb” is out now on Turbo Recordings.
