Midnight and Dub Direction EP

A 4 track leftfield/idm ep (26m 18s) — released January 31st 2011 on Bearfunk
Japan based, multi-instrumentalist, Max Essa, has done it again for us here in the Bearfunk Forest. His splendid second album "White Shoes, Blue Dreams" has pleased the public and reviewers alike. The "Midnight and Dub Direction EP" takes some of the album's finer moments and gives them a more dance-floor friendly, dubby makeover. "Midnight And A New Direction" is first up with two remixes both guaranteed to fire up any party. Max's own "Special Dub Mix" ditches most of the vocal and puts the emphasis squarely on the rhythm track adding live bass parts and some extra synth action. Stable-mates, Visti and Meyland, contribute to the proceedings with a hypnotic, dubby, driving groove; slow, low and extremely groovy. On the flip Max delivers two more fine remixes of his own. "One Night Out Of Seven" (12" Dub Mix) is a more tracky proto-house reworking, chunky and sparkling at the same time. The 12" Mix of "Glass Bottomed Boats" takes the original 3 minutes of sand, sea and sun that is ever-so Max and turns it into an extended 8.00 minute mega mix 80's style.
