Prime Numbers M7
01. Wireman - Armour (Move D Remix)
02. Wireman - Armour (Sascha Dive Remix)
03. Be - When You Left
04. Actress - Crushed
Prime Numbers return with M7. The first side is taken by a remix of Wireman’s Armour, the original of which was included on PN04 released at the end of last year. The remix is from Move D (Deep Space Network, Source Records), he ups the tempo and in trademark fashion softens the surfaces of the original, warming the core of the track whilst creating a bass heavy groove with twisting beats, synths and a husky hypnotic vocal sample. The flip includes two tracks. To start we have Crushed by Actress. Darren J. Cunningham aka Actress runs the much lauded Werk Records and this track is taken from his limited CD only album Hazyville (released on Werk in the Autumn of last year) Crushed is slo-mo, extra bass heavy, low slung house with an addictive lofi synth riff and submerged strings. The track bumps along with hiss and crackle to good affect before turning into a badalamenti-esque loop to finish. To round things off Be, the up & coming Manchester based producer provides When You Left. Be cut his teeth with the Chicago based Still music and a great Al Hudson reedit which found extensive dj support on its release. When You Left is a shuffling downbeat house groove with a jazz sentiment featuring deep rhodes keys and clipped drums, the track breaks up into a bluesy accapella section then builds up to a more direct 4/4 groove to the end...
