Nicole Moudaber’s MOOD welcomes American Roland Clark and NYC's Alexander Technique for a new single with remixes by Josh Wink. Roland is possibly a pivotal artist in the development of house music as a producer, DJ and vocalist who has collaborated with various artists under several aliases, from Armand Van Helden on 'Flowers' to Fatboy Slim on 'Star 69’. He was also recently inducted into Pete Tong’s BBC Radio 1 Hall of Fame.
Here he works with Alexander, who is possibly known for his stripped-down and banging techno which has won fans in Carl Cox, Maceo Plex, Kevin Saunderson, and of course, Nicole Moudaber.
'You Are Here' is a heavy, thumping techno cut that aims to rattle the walls and make the dancefloor sweat. Tough stabs are offset by shimmering hi-hats and rock-solid bass while Roland's vocal musing up top makes for a strobe-lit peak time track.
Josh Wink is behind a long list of club tracks over the past 30 years and has recorded for labels like Nervous, Strictly Rhythm and more, while his Ovum Recordings has been releasing since 1994.
His first remix strips things back then lays down tunneling and linear techno drums with snares and hits. The ‘No Vox’ version strips out some of the dark and menacing words of Roland for an even more physical workout while a heavily filtered heavy ‘Remix Tool’ closes out the package.
Roland Clark & Alexander Technique ‘You Are Here’ is out now on MOOD.
