Submarine Vibes is one the most consistent labels within Ex-Yu territory. Their next release is the first Remix Edition EP of the track “Flower The Black” which was produced by Hibrid. After releasing his debut album Izgubljeni (Lost) which gained a lot of success, label’s boss invited his friends to remix one of his singles.
“Hibrid – Flower The Black EP”
The original tune contains Hibrid’s signature sound full of emotions which are nicely layered with organic drum sounds. The guitar solo adds a personal touch which translates into a peaceful yet powerful tune. The first remix comes from German DJ/producer Martin Roth who added a bit more roughness in his version. He kept the wonderful guitar solo in a combination with solid groove and simple bass sound.
Franz Alice Stern stepped up his game with a few extra bpm’s and sharper groove which moves his remix towards techier sounds. Soft pads are perfectly combing with shuffling hi-hats and acid kind of stabs. Marcus Sur’s version keeps the momentum of original with a pinch of edginess that gives the track its drive. The organic groove is combined with a lead riff that completes the bass line. Atonic, also known as Ajnspric, adds his “old-school” vibe in his interpretation of the original. While breakdown brings less tension, it’s the drop that releases all the power.
