DC85 - Slam - Area 51 - Drumcode

The Summer of 2011 has been a vintage season for Drumcode with tracks and remixes from Joseph Capriati, Skudge, Alan Fitzpatrick, Gary Beck and Adam Beyer ticking all of the right boxes.

Drumcode family members and bona-fide techno legends Slam end the summer with 'Area51' – a two track release which sees the Glaswegian duo turn the sort of scintillating dancefloor burners that has made them what they are.

'Area51' leads the charge with a hypnotic urgency. A lazily delayed stab triggers every bar while, by contrast, an incredibly tight drumtrack and gluey bass forces things forward. Very little is done to detract from this brilliantly balanced combination but as you'd expect from veteran producers there's perfectly timed drops, flourishes and bursts of energy that take the track to the next level.

The tone of B-side track 'Distant Voice' is decidedly more sinister than 'Area51' and as a result, is the perfect counterpart. A ponderous bassline draws focus with its moody/funky counterpoint while piercing vocal stabs drive the cut aggressively. Holding the mood are background atmospherics that are as thunderous as they are subtly applied.
