Music: 49 North - EP6

49North EP6 - 4 track EP with Artefakt. Remix


Duncan Forbes is back with his sixth 49North EP and another refreshingly freeform, yet beautifully balanced style-o-scopic foursome.

Setting the pace, with a small-hour perfect re-rub of EP1 fave - 'Bluer Than Blue' - is the big man himself and his disarmingly seductive 'After Party' Version. That is before we see D's 'Continental Drift' treated to a deep and dub-minded, precision-Techno-makeover from revered Dutch duo - Artefakt.

Duncan then hops back in the driving seat - first, to craftily tweak his ambient-flavoured, breakbeat heater, ‘The Next Step’, into a sub-led, sub-aquatic and palatial epic; and then, to sucker-punch us with brand-new original - ‘When Lightning Strikes Twice’... a track that dovetails efficacious, rifling energy and vivid, sparkling melodies with an almost era-less grace.
