Twisted Hearts are on a roll. Having made a name for themselves with tropical carnival themed parties across the UK over the past couple of years, the London based crew also launched the Twisted Hearts record label in 2013. The few releases so far have garnered impressive support from the likes of Rob Da Bank and Zane Lowe and the team is continuing to clear themselves out a soulful-tropical grand-route with a brand new remix by Cropper. London-based, the producer behind the 2013 big deep-house tune Forever has received thumbs up from the likes of Pete Tong, Maya Jane Coles and Rinse FM and his brand new remix of Subculture Sounds and Dorj’s Path definitely confirms that the man is set for a great year.
Starting off in the eerie deep end with reverb and delay smothered vocals Path quickly drops into a shuffly garage beat with soaring synths. The affair gets chunky after the drop with nicely-placed glitchy vocal fragments and a beautifully anthem-like synth chord progression on the breakdown. Underlying bass and synth stabs add punchiness to the track while Cropper plays-around with the Israeli singer-songwriter’s tender vocals, chopping and sewing everything back-up into a gracefully textured bass-heavy emotional patchwork.
Path has got a great crossover appeal in the sense that it’s equally as enjoyable if you’re a hardened UK-Bass head or if you’re relatively new to these kind of sounds, like the 2009-dominating Skream remix of La Roux, and we can hopefully predict a bright future for this track (credits are also due to Subculture Sounds and Dorj for the original song; it would have been sacrilege to make such a tune sound anything else other than grand).
Head-over to the Twisted Hearts’ soundcloud for a free download of Path and keep those ears wide-open for the future collaboration EP between Subculture Sounds and Dorj.
