WOR.36 – Deep Breath
Building upon the legacy of DJs like Josh Wink and King Britt, Circle’s original incarnation in the 90’s help establish Philadelphia as a major hub for electronic music along the east coast — producing some the regions most well known events.
As DJs, Circle established a unique blend of tracky and moody house music that drew heavily from sounds coming out of the Germany, London, and San Francisco at the time. In Circle’s second incarnation, they tap the studio to bring their vibe to dance floors globally. Almost 20 years in the making — this debut release provides three solid mixes of “Deep Breath” – all of which sit on the moodier side of the tech-house dubwise genre.
The “Original Daggering Mix” brings all the elements of this release into play on a nine minute journey that slowly builds up a knockin drum pattern on top of the core rhythm to eventually meet up with a haunting vocal sample and a moody synth — creating an intense hypnotic build in the middle of the track. Deep chords are introduced following the build, helping to release the tension and end the track on a deeper note.
The “Deeper Mix” starts in essence where the original mix ends and builds upon it with rolling percussive elements and a Chicago-style organ sound that won’t leave your head for days. Thick sub-bass, additional dub effects and deep chords round out this version of the track.
The “IT After Hours” mix rounds out the EP and provides a stripped down version of the track that emphasizes the percussive elements of the release and uses layers of effects to create an equally intense build.
Josh Wink ” New release on philly’s deep Worship. I went straight for the chuggy, pumping “Deeper Mix” which has the late 1990’s chuggy, dark, “welcome to the factory” ol’ school house vibe written all over it. Looking forward to testing it out!”
