Metatext – Sounds of Meditation (August Artier Remix)
Get Physical welcome hot German artist Metatext for a new package that features remixes from Troja and August Artier.
Hamburg’s Metatext has built a reputation for his dubby and groove infused house sounds on labels like WAYU, Magician on Duty and KELLER. He shows off his skills here with the excellent ‘Sounds of Meditation’, a deep and atmospheric track with dubbed out swagger, reggae drum fills and the sort of warmth that really draws you in. Add in some well-deployed vocals and hits and rim shots that echo off to infinity and you have a truly irresistible groove.
Troja is a producer and DJ from India who over the last few years has developed a strong following around the world. His remix is darker initially, but then layers in some loose and languid instrumental sounds and colourful pads to make for a nice open-air soundtrack that will unite any party.
Last but not least, August Artier’s journey to his current home of Ibiza came after a youth growing up in the suburbs of Sydney Australia. This means he brings world influences to his beats on labels like Kindisch and Deeperfect. Here he keeps the dub feelings high, but speeds up the drums and adds delicate shakers and warped synths to make it fatter and more fluid for the higher energy points in the night.
This is a tasteful package of timeless dub house on Get Physical Music.
