Ten Ven & Ripley Vs. Zebra Katz – 1 Bad Bitch (Dear David Remix)
MTA has historically set the bar high for its label activity, bridging gaps otherwise seeming implausible, but always reassuringly executed. Having hit high notes with his debut single “I’ve Been Waiting” and subsequent remix duties for Cazzette, Swedish upstart Dear David joins Kove and Cause & Affect as an official remixer to the label’s latest stab at modern house absolution.
Pounding grooves and sultry melodic undertones see Dear David leave the comfort zones of the so-called ‘deep spike,’ opting for fluid and sinisterly building tech house of the highest calibre instead. For anyone who thought the Swedish breakout was to be a ‘play it safe’ option from Sweden’s fertile plains, this latest remix sets the precedent high with the nation’s most promising underground contribution in a considerable while.
