One of the original soldiers, Ink returns to Hardware, hot on the heels of releasing his critically acclaimed Hard Soul LP. Here we see him teaming up once more with Canada’s Perpetuum for some sonic savagery.
INK & PERPETUUM - JUNGLE BOOK / MIRAGE (RAIDEN & KHANAGE REMIX)
Cat No: HWARE13
Released: 5th OCTOBER 2009
Formats: 12” Vinyl / Download
A) INK & PERPETUUM - JUNGLE BOOK
Setting the tone on side A; haunting, sparse pads swirl around a minimal step break which is suddenly punctured out of nowhere by deep 808 booms and a twisted, gut wrench bass growl. Old skool stabs and conga funk grooves pepper the track with echoes of the Horsemen sound as each chapter of “Jungle Book” unfolds.
B) INK - MIRAGE (RAIDEN & KHANAGE REMIX)
For track 2, we see Ink’s techno-fuelled classic “Mirage” get a 2009 update by one of the only producers in the scene able to do the track justice, Raiden. Teaming up with Khanage the duo have delivered a remix which still maintains the flow and vibe of the original while twisting it up just enough to give the track a distinct sense of urgency and a more rugged dancefloor sensability. For the fans of the original, this won’t disappoint. Essential.
