One of Italy’s most respected imprints, Flashmob Records celebrates its 5th anniversary in 2019 with a slew of standout releases; June 21st saw one of France’s most respected duos, Amine Edge & DANCE, making their debut on the label with a tried-and-tested techy roller: ‘It Doesn’t Make Sense’. Listen here
‘It Doesn’t Make Sense’gets right to the point from the very first beat with effects and samples layered over a seriously crunchy beat, before introducing us to a deep, groovy bassline that is going to push bassbins to their limits this summer. Keeping the track rolling throughout in their inimitable trademark style, the track is an intricate concoction of effects, pads and an instantly recognisable sample which “anchors” everything together and provides the track’s namesake.
On the flipside, we’ve got three strong mixes which complement the original and ensure this release has something for everyone. First up, label boss,Flashmob puts his stamp on proceedings with a re-touch that focuses on a beefed-up bassline and works the track for early-hours dancefloors that need something a bit weightier. Carnao Beats takes things in a slightly different direction with a hypnotic, tribal vibe which ramps up the energy and makes the percussion the star of the show, whilst Classmatic strips things right back, drops the BPM and delivers a glitchy, synth-driven bass monster whose simplicity catches you off guard and flips it to make it the mix’s strongest feature.
Flashmob Records has been a cornerstone of the tech and house genres since its inception in 2014 and things don’t look to be slowing down any time soon. Championing producers from across the globe and at all levels of the industry, focus is clearly on quality, something which is plainly obvious on ‘It Doesn’t Make Sense’.
