1. This Is What Happens
2. This Is What Happens (Mark Flash Remix)
As collaborations go Polar Pair have always managed to get it right. Having already made tracks with Maddslinky, Shawn Lee, Daz-I-Kue and Sinden, and remixed the likes of Al Haca, Bonde Do Role and Black Devil Disco Club we knew that this partnership would be a good one. For the 3rd release on Botanika, the label have managed to pull in none-other than the mighty Atlantis from Detroit collective Underground Resistance.
This release is a story of two cities: Tel-Aviv, Israel, represented on the A side by Polar Pair; and Detroit, USA, represented by both Atlantis, with a ferocious spoken word delivery, and Mark Flash, whose classic Detroit soulful techno remix occupies the B side. Both Detroit natives hail from the Underground Resistance collective.
The collaboration between Polar Pair and Atlantis – the voice behind UR‘s classic “Transitions” – came about after a meeting in Tel Aviv in Spring 2007, and now the dubplate is creating serious club-buzz in the underground scenes of both cities, as well as in the UR related forums.
Punk-funk, cut-up breaks and classic UR techno collide on this third release from the Tel-Aviv based label, further displaying the cutting-edge diversity of the artistic/musical collective behind it. We expect big things from this record and it’s already causing quite a stir in the techno scene.
