The Waveform Transmitter’s man-in-the-know, Rob Draper, returns with a selection of Heavy Rotators killer cuts to rock your socks.
Hello! We return once again with another instalment of the Heavy Rotators playlist. First up is dynamic German producer David August and Hamburg is for Lovers. This is undoubtedly a genuinely uplifting deep house track to start of today’s playlist. From here we step things up a notch as we move into Amelie Lens, an exciting new(ish) artist on the scene, with her powerful big room techno track, Purge, a collaboration with Farrago. This has been released on the ARTS imprint. Be sure to catch her live with the Freeze and AV.Verde guys over at Birkenhead Priory next month.
Up next, on her own Lumière Noire label, is French composer Chloê and her track The Dawn, with Innervisions main man Dixon on remix duties. He weaves together a rumbling bassline and a growling intensity to give the track a darker edge than the outstanding original.
Martin Freeland is up next with his Man with No Name moniker. The Goa trance classic released way back in 1996 on Paul Oakenfold’s Perfecto label is timeless and still gets a good run out down at the Waveform HQ. This takes us into into acid veteran Josh Wink on his own Ovum imprint, with Resist. He returns to form with ravenous acid beats and a fiendishly wicked looping vocal.
Our next track is Italian producer, Irregular Synth. He takes absolutely no prisoners with this hard-edged proper techno banger courtesy of Decoy Records. Finishing up this week’s selection is our very own lord of the manor, Daniel Avery.
He recently selected a number of track to be reworked on Erol Alkan’s Phantasy label and we’ve chosen to showcase his track, Reception. Techno titan Perc does some severe damage reworking this into an industrial techno behemoth, moulding into the track a demonic vocal arrangement and a pulverising bassline.
