[Release] Back at the dawn of the summer, Infinity Ink unleashed ‘Infinity’, a track that quickly became part of the essential soundtrack to a sublime summer. Now that the sun is fading and the closing parties are drawing near, Dirtybird heavyweight Claude Vonstroke and Hot Creations homeboy Richy Ahmed put their own stamp on the cosmic garage anthem with the long awaited ‘Infinity Remixes’. Each voyaging to totally different dimensions, they bring ‘Infinity’ into the next party season.
First up, founder of pioneering San Francisco imprint Dirtybird Claude Vonstroke, submerges the original in a pool of futuristic, spaced out percussion, warping loops and cosmic FX – bestowing that Barclay brand of dirty, quirky funk. For his Crosstown Rebels debut, Richy Ahmed steps back in time to 80s Chicago, cutting and manipulating Ali’s vocal to a deep old school drawl reminiscent of classic Dance Mania Records. With a rude analogue bassline and retro piano driving into a full on acid work out, this beast of a track is sure to do some serious damage to the dancefloor in its own right.
This release is straight gold … as is the original. By far one of the best tracks of 2012, and the interpretations from these respected masterminds only honor it by proving how versatile and perfect it is. As always with Crosstown Rebels, an amazing release. As for Vonstroke & Ahmed … well played boys, well played!
