Awhile back Generation Bass did a post about the Dubblestandart/Lee Perry/David Lynch release ‘Chrome Optimism’. Now Subatomic Sound follows up with Chrome Optimism Remixes!! There are some amazing tunes on this release that will be making waves in some heavyweight sets.
The album features the original dubby electronic “Chrome Optimsim” radio edit and minimal dub version by Dubblestandart w/David Lynch & Lee Scratch Perry plus an amazing array of remixes that extend the vibes every direction from there: from dark to light and from dancefloor smasher to beautiful ambient dub. Remixers include Liondub, founder of the red hot label of the same name, with a genre busting UK Funky meets reggae hard stepper mix; dubstep rising star Antiserum twists his usually hard style in a beautiful dub stepping Jarre inspired composition that revisits the famous Jahovia reggae melody; SF producer Kush Arora delivering a blistering tropical bass mix; Dave Q founder of the influential Dub War dubstep party in the NYC imagines dubstep’s techno future; veteran NYC producer Ming of Ming + FS and dark horse April White both team up again with Emch of Subatomic Sound System for explosive dubstep bass bin bangers; longtime dub master and Destroy All Concepts label boss Dub Gabriel takes you on a fantastically dark and heady Lynchian journey a la Skull Disco; and Netherlands based analog dub scientist Tony Dubshot takes it to outerspace without an airlock.
