Watermät – Bullit (Original Mix)
Watermät entered the industry relatively unknown and shrouded in mystery in the final moments of 2013. His Sparks EP certainly wasn’t a sensational breakout moment, but some five months later the anonymous tunesmith has found a spin on the buzz surrounding modern house music that has artists and fans alike pricking their ears. Garnering the honors of Pete Tong’s ‘Essential New Tune’ at early doors, “Bullit” adds to Spinnin Deep’s refined vision for the modern house circuit for 2014. The big room market may not be pulling any surprise turns right now, but the same cannot be said of its calmer aural cousin.
Piercing horns ring with discordance, sticking out against the otherwise uplifting melodies and smooth beats that pervade the raw yet well formed track. Cut from a safe mould yet laced with subtle and unconventional nuances, “Bullit” leaves plenty of room for Watermat to mess with the commercial spike now facing house music in 2014 and crack a few comfort zones moving forward.
