Showcase Your Music, 'Your Beats': Moduloktopus 'Circles' RMX, 'Black Bay' (Re-Lit Jive) 'B*tch Dont Kill my Vibe' (reTwerk bootleg)

Many thanks to the 'Electronic Music Chameleon' Moduloktopus for sending me his latest offering: a reworking of Adam F's drum 'n' bass classic 'Circles'.

On this Future Bass remix Moduloktopus does a great job of keeping enough of the original to pay homage, whilst at the same time being imaginative and creative enough to take it somewhere else.

I love the whole remix but the climax is especially great.  'Circles' is one of my favourite tracks of all time so, truth be told, I was a little nervous to listen to this remix! However, I am very glad I did.  

I was so impressed with his 'Circles' re-imagining that I just had to check out some more of his music.  I absolutley love the 'Re-Lit Jive' track 'Black Bay' featuring Myss Ripley.  Again, the way the track energetically explodes, then retreats, only to slowly build up again works really well.  There's a great use of strings in this which you may not notice at first, thanks to how tastefully they're placed in the mix. 

Finally, I hear you cry 'Do we really need another reworking of Kendrick Lamar's 'B*tch Don't Kill My Vibe'?'. Well, yes we do, especially when it's as dope as this 'ReTwerk: FUTURE' version from the Boston / Santa Domingo producer.  This remix, like the aforementioned tracks, is not only beautifully composed, but is also mixed and mastered very nicely too.  Everything on all these tracks is very 'clean' sounding, with every element having it's own space. All three tracks sound nice and big without ever becoming offensive.

Many thanks for getting in touch Moduloktopus.  Keep the great music coming.
