1. Dan F - The Politics Of Summer (TM7 Remix) [6:58]
The hallmark of the new Glack Audio release is no one else than Hong Kong's Dan F who needs not much of introduction to any breaks fan on this planet. Dealing mostly in 4/4 beats nowadays he surprised us with a quite special breakbeat cut which got terrific response during pre-release tests on various dancefloors.
The dirty, distorted hi-hats and rough drum patterns in the TM7 Remix work well with the Dan F style basslines on a good sound system. The other well known breaks producer from Romania, Mesmer is delivering a remix with an even more dancefloor-friendly sound, with energetic rhythms, added tricks and the unique Mesmer-style sound. This time around Flack.su comes with low-key re-think of the track using the energy of the original bassline and still keeping the sound nice and gentle.
Don't forget to check Dan F's latest album (Rendition) released this year on his own label Disuye and watch out for Mesmer's forthcoming album to be released on the excellent swedish label, Sound Of Habib!

Mesmer - much more up beat feel, loving the growls and bleeps. The phased leads is cool. Great groove and movement. This one is the pick for me - will give it a spin out on the weekend. Mesmer really is on a roll at the moment.
Flack.su - Lead much more by the melody, this remix has a totally different feel from the other two. Using the bass line groove to underpin the track, the melody and swells lift the track to a nice euphoric place.
Great to see three very different takes of a tune in a package - nice work!"
