Marcus Raute is back with a juicy release on Colour In Music. The ‘Kind of Game’ EP packs three original tracks by Raute plus two remixes by Jay Milton Low and Jakobin & Domino.
The title track is a deep & chord driven house tune, with just the right amount of vocal chops and rhythmic stabs.
The Jay Milton Low (aka JML) remix reimagines ‘Kind of Game’ completely, opting for a break-infused house beat, a rolling synth bassline and delicately filtered pads, creating an eerie yet powerful dance track.
‘Within You’ is a full on homage to 80’s funk-pop, power-house and acid, mixing slap-bass, prince-esque piano and reverb heavy E-prom drums to a wonderful effect.
The Austrian duo Jakobin & Domino take ‘Within You’ to a much darker realm, with a simplistic shuffling house beat, a whole array of ghostly synths and a stronger focus on the vocal samples of the original.
Lastly Marcus Raute gives us his ‘Bad Touch’, a wonky, Syclops-esque house track that brims with broken drums, colourful stabs and slabs of acid.
