Justin Martin – Ghettos & Gardens Remixes Vol. 1
Fresh off the May release of Ghettos and Gardens the album, Justin Martin and Claude VonStroke’s Dirtybird imprint presents us with volume 1 of the remix package. Each rendition ranges across the entire dance music spectrum, showcasing everything from relentless drum & bass to soulful deep house grooves.
Dusky, Catz ‘n Dogz, and Danny Daze each offer their own deep house rework. French Fries offers the glitch/trap sound that everyone seems to be keen on these days, and Ardalan’s remix is experimental, bass-heavy tech house at its finest. The last track on the release, Bachlors of Science’s drum & bass remake, is a flawless uptempo reconstruction, featuring the bass-heavy facade Dirtybird has come to represent, with a glimmer of that old-school UK garage sound to it as well.
