01. Mean Teeth – Multitude (The Clamps Remix) [4:35]
02. Mean Teeth – Blaze (Vowel Remix) [4:57]
Impact are renowned for offering music from established acts, as well as artists who are beginning to build their own place within the wider drum & bass world. For this project, they’ve brought on board The Clamps, a French pioneer of the genre, as well as Vowel, who draws his influence from the streets of Lisbon and Bristol. It highlights how Impact have a birds-eye view of the drum & bass scene and how they’ve utilized this to bring the very best artists into their roster.
The Clamps’ take on ‘Multitude’ is thumping as each pounding drum beat moves into the next. He grabs hold of the choppy bassline provided for by Mean Teeth and pushes this through a different prototype. The Clamps production is sharp and this pushes through each one of their productions, especially with the added help of Mean Teeth on the remix’s original.
‘Blaze‘ is taken into another dimension by Vowel, who twists the track into an almost unrecognizable shape. One part of the record which instantly stands out about Vowel’s work on ‘Blaze’ is the groove which sits underneath each meticulously crafted layer. Vowel makes himself felt in the house of Impact, proving that by having him in their midst they’ve only reached another challenging level. They’re here to make their presence known and the forthcoming remix package from Impact does exactly that, with the assistance of The Clamps and Vowel.
