Dark Globe’s debut album ‘Tales of Dirt and Sparks’ showcased 10 of their best tracks, which had previously been released as singles. Their consistency and creativity meant that they were perceived as pioneers of the ‘breaks’ scene but their musical remit has always been broader than a single genre would suggest.
From the all time classics ‘Mondo Scoro’ and ‘Sprintian Posture’ released whilst Dark Globe were signed to Leftfield’s Hard Hands imprint, to the nu-skool breaks of ‘Bug On Lens’ and the swirling bass drive genius of ‘Arnica’, released on W9Y, Dark Globe’s evolving electric sound has gained them worldwide respect.
Now, after spending some time on their new album the Globe return with a monster and there’s a fresh combination of quality remixes to. Wally Lopez, The Fat Truckers & Steve Mackay (ex Pulp) and Dark Globe’s own reinterpretation ‘Flypast’ will send the dancefloor and music lovers crazy across the board, no matter what their taste.
The original version is a bass driven, emotive masterpiece. Amanda Ghost’s vocal caresses the soul whilst Dark Globe’s crafted, warm but precise production creates a shadowy world below. Dark Globe’s ‘Flypast’ mix builds then blows you away. Tight, clean and super funky it will knock you about with a heavy dose of funk, twisted tech breaks and glimpses of Amanda’s beautiful vocals.
Wally Lopez’ crisp, hypnotic 4/4 version will turn house heads through 360 degrees with its assuredly tough rhythms. He has gone to town on the vocal sample and the outcome is breathtaking, while the Dub strips it back down to the strings and beefs up the bottom end.
Doing as they do best, Fat Truckers have provided another slanted, forward looking beat for the vocal to nestle upto. A rough electronic bashment take that deserves to be played very loudly indeed, it completes a diverse and collectable remix package available individually on promo 12”.
‘Break My World’ is already a Cool Cuts no.1 and Essential New Tune for Pete Tong who has invited the band to play live on Radio 1, March 5th, during Miami. Dark Globe are back and boy will you know about it.
