The second remix package for Dany Rodriguez’s ‘Galaxies Compared’ album focuses on the UK Beard Man and techno legend, Mark Broom.
Belgium’s Dany Rodriguez released his stunning ‘Galaxies Compared’ album in 2016 (most notably gaining August Album of The Month in Germany’s Faze Magazine) and followed it up with a remix EP featuring mixes of the title track and ‘November’ by Ben Long and Alexander Kowalski. This time around Dany turns to Mr. Broom for his rendition of another of the album’s tracks ‘D’story’.
The original version of ‘D’story’ (featured on the B-side of this new 12”) was the album’s slowly building opener with its bubbling synth lines and ethereal strings. It was charted by the likes of Rolando and beautifully described by Kris Needs as “the juddering meteor shower of star-sailing opening salvo” in Electronic Sound, while Exclaim.ca called it “a claustrophobic flurry that builds in intensity like some burgeoning galactic event.”
The unstoppable Mark Broom takes ‘D‘story’ and twists it up in his own signature style, turning in a lethal remix that brings ‘D’story’ further onto the dance floor. Tough beats and a swirling drive that still delivers a nod to the deepness of the original, it’s punctuated by its cavernous bassline and effective use of those Detroitesque strings.
