Max Graham – Airtight (Tim Penner Remix)

Exactly fifteen years after the release of the original, Max Graham has picked two superb remixes of “Airtight” to be released on his Cycle label. Re-interpreting the 2000 hit first, John O’Callaghan under his Henrik Zuberstein alias provides a lush soundscape with a groove similar to that of Guy J. It’s Tim Penner’s re-work, however, that stands out the most distinctly. The fellow Canadian went a darker route for his version, transporting the listener to an underground afterhours club. Staying true to the original “Airtight” at first, he¬†assaults the eardrums just over halfway through with chunky synthesizers and a kick that triggers a carnal desire to move to it. Playing around with different melodies and textures is clearly his strong suit, and with the continued release of music this caliber, Penner is¬†solidifying his status as one of progressive’s most prominent producers.
