Now a firm regular of our Death Proof parties which we’ve been holding at Paris’s booming boat-come-club Batofar (last one with Alan Fitzpatrick, next one with Samuel L Session), zAm'X is quickly turning into something of a local hero with the calibre of his productions (check out his recent remix of The Omega Men's 'Girls Noize'). His first original activity on Death Proof comes in the shape of the growl, warp and obese throb of title track 'Better Must Come' and the sublime samba-enduced 'Bloom Up'.
On remix duties, we take great pride in having the now legendary Lee Coombs ply his unfathomable abilities on 'Better Must Come'. Out comes a master class in electro-enfused house breaks production, his remix rolls and swirls with deep organ sounding stabs layerered over a grooving melodic bassline to build a true behemoth of a track.
Los Angeles' Dom Corleone brings the jack on his effort: popping like a Brooklyn body-popper, it throws mad shapes and, like the lyrically lousy King George VI, it vocally stutters throughout, all capped with a not-so-subtle lean to the booming Baltimore bass of old! Fellow Parisian Timakz steps up to the plate with a smooth and sultry techno rethink: deep punchy bass with a perfectly structured drum line take front and centre, allowing rising and building synths to whip each and every auditory angle. Nice work for his first release ever!
We are also very proud of having artwork acollaboration from infamous French graphic designer Niark for this release. Check his homepage (www.niark1.com
), he's ahead of the game!
