“These tracks were made in a special period of my life. A lot of inspiration I got from my wife, Voices In My Head is her voice and her love of dub music.”Nicolas Barnes
The title track “Voices In My Head” as well as its counterpart “Out Of Style” reveal subtle house variations elegantly blended with dub elements, lush atmospheric textures and spacious breakdowns or transitions between states of mind. Groovy but moderate, engaging yet balanced, a truly inspiring mixture of sounds that will make anyone start drifting into otherwordly soundscapes in seconds. Modebaku completes the journey with his breakbeat-infused remix, keeping to the original layers of the original yet taking them into a four-to-the-floor environment, best fitted for peak time moments on the dancefloor. Smooth combo and a highly recommended release right here for selectors and collectors alike. Listen to the snippets below:
