The highly anticipated EP from Perfecto Fluoro regulars Angry Man and Future Disciple is finally upon us. The combination of these two producers’ amazing talents results in something that’s greater than the sum of its parts. 1 + 1 = 3, if you will.
The original mix of “The Smuggler from Bombay” has been on our most wanted list since a sample was posted on Facebook a few months back. Between Angry man’s acid lines and Future Disciple’s techy drums, this track is a genuinely Goan. The breakdown is where the track shines: a euphoric melody is what makes the track stand out from the more template “tech-trance” tunes that are a dime a dozen these days. Harmonic Rush, the go-to producer of the moment, turns in a remix that somehow improves on the fantastic original. A more psy-like variation is the order of the day here with the product being exactly what is needed in the package. The way he uses the melody fits perfectly with his signature sound, making this almost the perfect track for the Fluoro faithful!
Angry Man is on his own for the second track of the release, “Lunatic”. Ever since label boss Paul Oakenfold played it last year, the anticipation for it has been sky high. It’s already received support from many big names in the trance scene. The Before Sunrise mix is the less aggressive, melodic version. We love how the melody is allowed to take precedence during the breakdown instead of the more standard fare remixes the producer has made recently. The darker After Dawn variation has had the better support from DJs thus far and it’s not hard to tell why. The bass line is harder and thr breakdown is more subdued.
Overall one of the most complete packages released from Perfecto Fluoro in a while. Make sure to check out all four tracks, available now on Beatport.
