“Dreamcatcher” – Subwave (Metalheadz Platinum) [SINGLE] February 23, 2009Posted by rocketsciencemedia in Press Releases.
2. Special Skills
Subwave’s dancefloor destroying ‘Dreamcatcher’ finally arrives on PLAT008. If you’ve been out at all in the past year, you’ll no doubt have heard it’s distinct bassline shaking the venue. Soaring strings swim amongst ethereal vocals with a simple hi-hat loop leading the way, until a hard-hitting step takes you into the break. A warm lfo’d bassline provides the low-end pressure, while warping tones add pace throughout the phrase. Platinum pressure!
On the flip, Subwave shows a darker, more technical side with ‘Special Skills’. Lo-fi tones are mixed with synthetic strings during the intro, while a simple but effective beat provides the rhythm. With a swirl of delay, we’re taken into the drop which is announced with a huge midrange squelch. Razor-edged beats are set against funk like shuffles, while a monstrous low end moves through various modulations, creating a twisted metallic beast of a track. Special skills indeed.
