Following on from their massive â€œMistralâ€ (Bed80) release, once more, Christian Smith & John Selway show they are the masters of creating tracks that seem to push dancefloors ever upwards into ecstatic mass hysteria with â€œDaytonaâ€. This time round theyâ€™ve found another variation of their genre-blurring sound, as hugely strong and big room as usual but with seriously funked-up tech groove that builds to a massive climatic breakdown.
Christian Smith & John Selway are able to create huge tunes that appeal to a wide range of DJs – from the techno purists to the trance kings – and every credible DJ in between. Thereâ€™s not many artists who regularly have such a diverse bunch as Sven Vath, Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer, Dubfire, John Digweed, Sasha, Sander Kleinenberg, Roger Sanchez, David Guetta, Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, all playing their releases.
On remix duty this time round are none other than the original Bedrock masters, John Digweed & Nick Muir, who keep the funked-up attitude, beef up the bottom end, and blast out a more deeply twisted version.
â€œDaytonaâ€ will also feature on John Digweedâ€™s forthcoming â€œBedrock Elevenâ€ (3xCD LP), for which he has selected future highlights, unreleased exclusives, current favourites and remixed classics, from his influential labelâ€™s catalogue for this next annual instalment of the Bedrock mix compilation series.
