I recently came across this 1998 track “Silky” by DJ Rok which is built around a disco sample but is otherwise somewhere between pumping techno and arpeggiated/Italo disco. I’d love to find more tunes that don’t sound like disco or filter house but have some elements in common. What do you reckon?
An interesting variant on this idea!
I’ve heard a few of Duke’s (many, many releases) like this. I wish some of his stuff was a little more stripped back, he tended to be quite maximalist.
The Xen Mantra remix is fun. I wish I could easily make a slightly more dub version because I really dig the instrumental.
