To mark the 50th release on Superfreq, the label boss himself, Mr. C steps up with a new single backed by remixes from Ruede Hagelstein and Radio Renta. This is Mr.C’s first new music since 2017’s ‘Incidents’ album and comes after he’s steered this label through 16 years of music. His style has always been rooted in sci-fi grooves and tech house design and this new one continues in that tradition.
Called ‘Show Me’, this is six minutes of rumbling bassline taking you deep while the drums and pinging cow bells oil the groove. Whispered vocals add a sense of mystery and the whole thing is galactic in style and cinematic in execution.
Ruede Hagelstein is first to remix and has previously produced on Audiomatique, Bedrock and Poker Flat. His first ‘Synthesizer Love Mix’ is more spaced out and abstract, with militant snares rolling over the drums and haunting, icy synths bring a brilliant retro-future feel. Then comes his ‘Rave Tool’ version, an energetic and dark track with real synth drama and punchy drums.
Radio Rental is linked with Zulu Records and is an up and coming producer who will be releasing more on this label over the coming year. His remix is stiff, with prodding bass stabs and metallic drums that are robotic yet funky and really draw out a new side to the original.
It’s out 14 September.
