Cid Inc & Lank - Our Benefactors EP w/mixes from King Unique and Luis Junior - release date: October 12th 2010
The 18th release on microCastle sees a special collaboration between two of electronic music's most innovative artists. Named by Beatport as one of their Progressive House Artists of 2009, Henri Hurtig – otherwise known as Cid Inc teams up with Hungary's Lank (Peter Golyan) for the Our Benefactors EP. Included on the package are 2 fresh originals with remixes from two of this year's most sought after producers King Unique and Luis Junior. The Our Benefactors original mix is a rough-edged melodic house track with a very sinister and hypnotic brain teasing lead. A rumbling bottom end and an unparalleled cool vibe really create that dynamic big room feel. Certainly one of Henri and Peter's most unique productions to date. Matt Thomas otherwise known as King Unique provides the Our Benefactors remix. Formed in 2001 the King Unique production touch has appeared on more than fifty remixes and has yielded some of the biggest dance floor bombs known to man, most notably: Dirty Vegas’ 'Walk Into The Sun', Underworld's 'Two Months Off' and The Killers 'Somebody Told Me'. Following fine outings on Bedrock and Flow King Unique has delivered a big room sonic masterpiece for his Our Benefactors remix here. The spirit of the main theme is maintained and accentuated with some trippy, swirling electronics; however it is the very unique, awe-inspiring organs that Matt has added that should guarantee some amazing dancefloor moments over the coming months. A superb remix from King Unique.
The second original on the package is Coronal Mass, a fat, techier progressive house track with extremely dark and ominous overtones. As the piece grows epic sheets of spine tingling synths are unleashed as anticipation builds during the breakdown all for what results in a simply amazing payoff. The Coronal Mass remix is supplied by Luis Junior who is Spanish born and based in Madrid, he is one of the fasted rising stars of electronic music at the moment. His productions are sought after and championed by industry heavy weights John Digweed, Sasha, Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Warren. His debut EP “Colache” released earlier this year on Bedrock gained a lot of attention industry wide and more recently the massive “BG" also for Bedrock was one of the most unique techno productions thus far this year. For his Coronal Mass remix Luis has stripped the track right down and delivered a futuristic slice of world class hypnotic techno. The hypno synth sits perfectly under a very accessible club friendly framework and the signature Luis Junior production quality is unrivalled here with its pristine overall sound and rock solid titanium beats. A killer remix from Luis which is already being played by John Digweed.
