Ramadanman & Appleblim - Justify
02 Justify (Will Saul & Mike Monday Remix)
Latest hookup from Appleblim and Ramadanman, once again displaying the uber-crisp production vibe these two are so fond of, sounding twice as loud as almost anything else we've played in the office today. 'Justify' paces along at a relatively chilled 110bpm, built around a flexed halfstep routine with a nicely technofied sound palette and the requisite low-end pressure that always elevates these productions beyond the ordinary. There's a big synthy breakdown halfway through which shimmers and builds nicely as the track almost imperceptibly gains momentum before it all comes to a sudden stop. The pair's affiliation with Will Saul's Aus labels continues over on the flip with a tidy remix from Will Saul & Mike Monday delivering a more dancefloor friendly version complete with treated toms and squashed bongos that must have worked a treat at all those off-sonar beach parties the other weak. Solid summer vibes - get checking!
