Rhythm Cult, a brand new moniker created by production duo Paul Loraine and Richard Seeley, have earned the supreme distinction of debuting their new work as an outfit on none other than Sasha’s Last Night On Earth label. Thus, Brutal was born — an EP that shows off the producers’ duality across two separate mixes with a lighter, acid house-esque original of “Brutal” that soon gives way into a brooding techno dub mix.
No EP is complete without an expert remixer, and in this case, Petar Dundov was tapped for the job. Having already demonstrated his handle over all things melodic and progressive with releases on Sudbeat and Steyoyoke, the Croatian talent has succeeded in molding “Brutal” into a completely different beast of a track. He builds an airy foundation around the original’s acidic elements, deploying subtle, yet haunting vocal notes in the background to create an even more hair-raising effect. The finished work fits into the LNOE aesthetic seamlessly, and is primed to easily accomplish its purpose of dance-floor destruction upon its October 6 release.
