Following on from the widely acclaimed album from The Mekanism, Seth Troxler’s Play It Say It label commissions a series of essential remixes from Chris Carrier & Dan Ghenacia, Ryan Crosson and dOP.Parisian DJ & producer Damien Roussel AKA The Mekanism has been building a serious following over the last few years, with a string of compelling releases on the likes of Kerri Chandler’s Madhouse, London imprint Needwant and of course Play It Say It. His 8 track LP ‘Breath’, released in March of this year, garnered international support from everyone from Mixmag to DJ, Tsugi to Faze, plus extensive radio props from BBC Radio 1 and 6Music. Now the package gets brought to life once again with a set of standout remixes.First out of the blocks are Frenchmen and enduring house legends Chris Carrier and Dan Ghenacia. They flip ‘Journey’ into a rubbery and bubbly number where the bassline and synths tightly weave around one another and work you into a lather. Soulful pads, filtered vox and slick electronic stylings make this one a warm and trippy cut for the late night hours.Then comes Detroit talent, Visionquest man and ever-evolving techno mainstay Ryan Crosson. His ‘Break’ remix of ‘Breath’ is a high octane throwback with crisp breakbeats, chattering claps and a wobbly electro groove that gets right under your skin. Toms gently patter above, bass runs deep and there is real space and dynamism to the perfectly arranged track.French funsters and Circus Company associates dOP then get weird with their excellent remix of ‘Da Beat.’ In their hands it becomes a percussive number with an old school, spaced out feel. Warped synths, metal hits and squiggly lines all hustle and bustle the dance floor into action.Then Crosson comes again with an ‘Ambone’ remix of ‘Breath’. It’s an atmospheric and escapist ambient version with skeletal percussion but no kicks. Muted, distant acid, rising pads and snatched vocal cries fill it with tension and make it a perfect tool to drop into any set to add suspense and drama. This is a top team of remixers who all comecorrect and add great new perspectives to the interesting Mekanism source material.

Seth Troxler’s taste-making Play It Say It label continues to set its own agenda with a fantastic new doublepack / mini-LP from Frenchman The Mekanism. Featuring eight club focussed cuts, this compendium follows up the essential Acid Love EP released on this label back in 2015.Parisian DJ/producer and Rinse FM France star Damien Roussel is well known to those with their ear to the underground house scene. He has been DJing for more than a decade and puts out his choice cuts on labels like Berlin’s Exploited, London’s Needwant and Leeds’ 2020 Vision as well as on Play it Say it of course. Looking back to Chicago but also forward into his own sonic realms, he is a fresh producer with plenty to say for himself, and this expressive new release proves that.‘Breath’ opens the collection in prickly fashion, with firmly rooted drums the basis of a tune that develops into a jacking monster complete with fat acid stabs and chattery Windy City claps. It’s tense and robust throughout, and is the sort of track that demands the attention of whole festival arenas, especially when the clipped female vocals come in. The crispness continues on ‘Journey,’ which is deeper and groovier, with radiant chords bringing warmth and heat to a track dappled with sci-fi sounds and driven by a killer bassline. On the irresistible ‘Da Beat’, explosive drums, cow bells and rapped vocals all jump about with more acid stabs and the result is a track as brilliantly lively as you will hear all year.The hard-hitting, high impact style of The Mekanism continues on ‘Traverse’, a tribal number with whirring machines and malfunctioning voices, then ‘Get It’, a chunky and loopy house number in the mould of early DJ Sneak. The excellent ‘What’ gets loose and freaky, with flaming hits and wild style drums that demand you dance, ‘Follow Me’ is a bass driven, no-frills weapon, and finally ‘Time to Party’ will set any floor alight with its old school stabs and cowbells, grinding bass and big house drums. This is a fierce collection of club-ready tracks that ooze class as well as charisma.
