After notable excursions on underground electro imprints such as Access Tonal Communication, Divine Disorder Records, CHP Recordings and Mars Frequency Records, rare yet talented Inhuman Designed resurfaces this time on another milestone of a label, namely Frajile Recordings, to deliver a stealthy blow of a digital pack.
With "The Conversion", following the "Ashes To Stardust" tune on highly recommended "Into The Stars - A Tribute To Dialect" compilation, Cory Hernandez also known as Dj Proliferation keeps on exploring Industrial Electrobass sound, his predilection style. His track is one of those that leave no escape for the listener because of its tense atmosphere made of rich synthesizer programming, insane sequencing, intricate strings mechanic 808 action and scary cinematic lyrics ("Where does he come from? Who are his People? These are the things i need to know") to ignite the dancefloor! Play it loud!
Frajile Recordings signature Brice Kelly comes next to turn the original into a remodeled Rotherish affair thanks to punchy bassline, sharp melodies, crispy production, and classic spacey electro layers.
Florida based duo Phonotronix formed by Illektriss and J-Tronik (Bass Frequency Productions, CHP Recordings, Black Magic Records) goes on with an ace conversion, adding to the main theme a personal vision enhanced by pulsating bass and schizoid flights. This gloomy version amazes thanks to an infectious industrial tone throughout that seems to presage something even stronger!
Finally, going deeper into the realm, James Wolfe & David Noller aka Scratch-D of legendary "Dynamix II" under their Techtonic Plates moniker (Frajile Recordings, Zero One Music) offer a very naughty remix, probably the best of the pack, immersing the listener into Sci-fi landscapes surrounded by nasty robotic machines. The tone is instantly given as a mighty vocoder introduces the jam ("The converter, the conversion, I am your leader, Mechanoid"), immediately revamped by grafts of melodic synths and stunning Miami electro bass rhythm. Huge!
With "The Conversion EP", Dynamix II Music & Fragile Recordings have joined forces to sign a remarkable come back into the musical biz. Cory's track was so rich that it inspired brilliantly the three others reworks. Essential!
