WOR.28 – Blazin’ EP
Philadelphia’s Worship Recordings is back with heavy heat! Rob Paine & Someone Else (Sean O’Neal of Foundsound Recordings and Little Helpers) come together for a collaboration that has been worth the wait.
Known for his deep and dub style house, Rob Paine works some minimal magic with the graces of Sean O’Neal for a spectacular smooth ride; the kicks are thumpin’, and the bass is rumblin’. The reggae stabs echo and reverb into the flow of each melodic transition. The stylin’ accompaniment on the remixes come from some well known Philadelphians; Sean Thomas and Jay Haze.
Jay now traveling through different continents on musical missions, adds worldly influence of sounds through his remix. Classic big room style with intimate environment vibe, it’s a driving force of dub house, without having to up the tempo to feel its motion.
The ‘Drumsong Dub’ from Sean Thomas is a full representation of what he does monthly at his Philly club night of the same name. A heady and welcoming vibe, that’s steadily diggin’ in your soul and making your body want to shake; no melarkey in this mix!
And in respect to the classic style of a DJ EP, this release showcases a ‘Dub’ and a ‘Beats’ mix. The ‘Beats’ mix strips away some of the spaced out sounds, and replaces them with powerfully placed, live percussion from the talents of Carlos Izaguirre. His musical enhancements add an organic and earthy feel for those who want to keep their mixes grounded, yet groovy.
Need something to build your dance floor to the right groove? Head straight for the ‘Dub’ mix, as its solid progression, and bounce can be the ultimate foundation for setting the proper vibe, taking your crowds to whatever direction you’re headed next.
CURRENT FEEDBACK AND COMMENTS:
Joshua Heath – I dig the Original mix- Deep and dark with a nice chugginess in the beat, and a choppy reggae vibe in the vox. Jay Haze mix brings that classic house vibe to it for the flip.
Mark Bell / Blakkat – Great release! Love the extra toys, the original’s dope and Jay’s remix is the best thing he’s done in forever. Sean’s remix is also very nice!! 9 out of 10!!!!!!
Carl Michaels/Persons of Interest – Boh! Just want to say, this is a TRIUMPHANT return. This EP is basically without fail. Sean Thomas’ Drumsong Dub: Epic, tight and twisted like I like it! I’ll play the whole EP but this is dope as hell, and I will hammer it. Original mix: Couldn’t picture the outcome before I listened, but this track exactly personifies the love child of Rob Paine and Someone Else. Jay Haze: Old school and dope as hell…will also get a ton of play.
Tyler Stadius – Feeling both the original, dub and the Sean Thomas remix. Solid release as always!
Randall Jones – 10/10 This record is 100% ILL. I love all the mixes. Played it in Mexico this past weekend and will play it for the rest of the summer and beyond!
Dj Nutrious – Blazin it is! Lots of elements here – past, present, and future sounds from classic, deep, dub, garage, tech, tribal, even bits of disco flavor in there. I love the entire record, all the remixes. The breakdown on the Original made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
Doc Martin / Sublevel California – Will play this out this weekend! Glad you’re putting music out again!
Chris Udoh – This is Super Beast !!
