We return with Streamer and a Remix EP focusing on his “Walking with Camels” EP which we released last Christmas. We loved that EP so much that we just needed a follow up and what better way than to get a bunch of our favourite producers to put a twist on the EP.
The original Walking with Camels sounds like a precious, classic and unmissable (they don’t make it like they used to) 70s recording featuring some tracks in the tricky measures of 6/8 and 5/8.
In parts, the EP sounded like the lost Middle Eastern Jazz recordings of Idris Mohammed, Byrd and M Jarre jamming together on a modern electronic Psychedelic Orchestral Dub tip… a sonic, cinematic Desert Wave soundtrack for an imaginary movie yet to be made – soundcloud.com/generation-bass-1/sets/streamer-walking-with-camels
For the Remixes EP, this world was turned upside down and inside out, deconstructed and reconstructed for the club environment. Most of the remixers opted for Last Sacrifice as the track to remix. It is a track that gets under your skin and refuses to leave and there never seems to be enough of it, always leaving you yearning for more
The 12 tracks on the Ep/Album feature an array of genre styles from current hot fave Gqom (Gome) through to 80’s Synthwave, Grime, Tribal, Vogue/Ballroom, Techno, Wobble, Neuro Funk, DnB, Acid, Jungle and Skweee.
1. Streamer – Walking With Camels (Ballroom Version)
Streamer turns the EP Title track into a Vogue/Ballroom Bass blitz in the desert. Arab Ha! never sounded quite like this before demonstrating that Streamer is a true Master At Work!
2. Streamer – Last Sacrifice (Bandish Projekt Feat. Aishwarya Joshi)
Bandish Projekt created a spine-tingling remix of The Last Sacrifice featuring Hindi vocals on a 5/8 Dubstep excursion.
3. Streamer – Searching For Ketama (Gqom Burn Riddim)
For his first remix of Searching for Ketama (there are 3 in all), Streamer looked to South African Gqom (Gome) for this remix. Commercial and accessible and already supported by BBC Radio 1 and Toddla T amongst others.
4. Streamer – The Last Sacrifice (Insane Fennel Apocalypse Remix)
Insane Fennel added to the ritual and gave The Last Sacrifice an Apocalyptic Wall of Bass Re-rub. first premiered on the Mad Decent Blog.
5. Streamer – Midnight Express (Neuro Version)
Streamer, who it seems can turn his hand to almost any genre style and pull it off with aplomb, gave Midnight Express a Neuro-Funk, DnB, Jungle make-over turning it into something completely MAD!
6. Streamer -The Last Sacrifice (Sarantis Remix)
Sarantis turns The Last Sacrifice into a Grime epic.
7. Streamer – The Last Sacrifice
Sanmon transformed the sacrificial ritual into a Techno behemoth.
8. Streamer – Searching For Ketama (Golden Version)
Streamer’s 2nd remix of Searching for Ketama finds him giving it a Ketama Gold sheen with a harder hitting vibe, taking it way down to 80 BPM.
9. Streamer – The Last Sacrifice (Zhe Pechorin Remix)
Zhe Pechorin gives The Last Sacrifice a new deep-tribal, slow-grind make-over.
10. Streamer- Bedouin (Center Of The Universe Remix)
Our friend Centre of the Universe was bold enough to tackle Bedouin producing an other-worldly remix that sounds like we could have landed on the moon, way before Neil Armstrong did!
11. Streamer – Searching For Ketama (DesertWave Version)
For streamer’s 3rd and final version of Ketama, he covered an idea I had in my mind for a Bladerunner version in the form of a DesertWave remix harking back to 80’s Synthwave sensibilities.
12. Streamer- Midnight Express (Drvg Cvltvre’s Acid Kool Aid Mix)
We close this Ep/Album with Drvg Cvltvre tapping into early Pink Floyd for inspiration combined with his affinity for Acid and he teases us with a slow bulding mellow monster.
