The incomparable Dave Seaman joins forces with Renaissance to deliver a double A-side slab of tech-house…
As a DJ Dave has ranked amongst the top-flight for many years, playing to packed-out shows all over the globe, he is undoubtedly one of the biggest names out there. The association between Dave and Renaissance is a long one, having delivered numerous albums over the years, including his much-vaunted contributions to the illustrious Masters Series. But 2009 sees him release his first single on the label, and it certainly has been well worth the wait.
Released as a double A-side, we start with ‘Attack Of The Abalones’, a peak time stomper; built around an insistent kick and ascending, technoid stabs. The urgency rises as effects swirl together until all is brushed aside and the funk-laden hook rips through: the sound of a dancefloor in full swing. The break down winds up the percussion again as analogue interference builds into that almighty riff again and the party really starts.
The second track is ‘Wrong Side Business’, an all-together darker affair, with a moody acid-line that drives it well into late night territory. The menacing pads rise ominously, interplaying with filtered snares and a distorted choral vocal sample, to heighten the atmospherics further. When it drops, the acid and percussion intensify, twisting heads and moving feet deep into the night.
Dave Seaman’s place in dance music is well cemented, but this is surely his most inspired studio work to date.
