BCR021 : Anonym – Changing Cities EP (incl David Duriez remixes)



Release number 021 for Bass Culture Records and they once again look to their Detroit connection and the always on point, Anonym. Having first made an appearance on the label back in 2009, remixing Zoe Xenia‘s “Let The Music Play,” it was his own 2010 ep “Lov Is Easy” that really established the mysterious producer as a founding BC family member. The ep continues to be one of the labels most popular releases.  As we enter 2012 Anonym makes his much anticipated return with another choice three track selection backed by a brace of mixes from David Duriez. Opening the EP is “Everyday Was A Sunny Day” and ‘Preacher’ house never sounded so powerful. “West Side Jack” sees Anonym moving out of the sun and into the eery shade. Hypnotic to the end, its unexpected twist in the final third will surprise many. Third and final original is the title track, “Changing Cities” which continues you with the suspense whilst plunging us to its warm depths. Warmth is also the key ingredient in the remixes of “Every Day Is A Sunny Day” from French house legend, David Duriez. Making his return to production for the first time in four years, David steps away from the all encompassing intensity of the original, bringing a looseness and flow, allowing his beats to breathe and the bassline to develop and take hold. This is house music at its finest and together with its Dub, a fitting addition to another exciting Bass Culture release. Welcome back David!
