[House] Sinden & Hotfire – Twiddle

Sinden & Hotfire

Insomniac Records recently dropped a completely free compilation centered around Sinden. Not only did Sinden curate the compilation, adding friends including R3LL and LO’99, but he had several collaborations on the project. One of those collaborations was on “Twiddle” with the San Diego duo Hotfire.

“Twiddle” is a techy, old-school driven funk machine. The bouncy basslines have groove written all over them. Underground house-heads will hold this dear like the treasure it is, while anybody who jives with some bass and a four-to-the-floor kick pattern will surely be dancing away to this sweet collaboration. We wanted to highlight this single, because it was one of our favorites off the entire compilation, but don’t let that stop you from checking out the whole thing. Like we said before, the entire compilation is released for free, so you can get this and plenty of others goodies for you digital library.

[Electronic] Passion Pit – Take A Walk (Sinden Remix)

To be honest, the last time I heard of UK producer/DJ Sinden was when he was a part of The Count and Sinden and they had just released “Beeper.” That was back in 2008, when EDM just started getting a glimpse of the mainstream spotlight in the US (and A-Trak released a catchy remix of “Beeper”).

Today, Sinden is making his way back to the American limelight, with a remix of “Take A Walk,” by Passion Pit. His take on the song is far different from the original, but still maintains a summeresque feel. The production on this remix contains some eclectic elements, such as the 80s synthestration, wobble, and emphasis on percussive components. As a whole, this track grew on me with each listen. Catching just some of the subtleties in the mix, I appreciate how his complexities in the track manage to balance the minimalistic groove into a well-produced package. If you’re up for venturing into relatively new musical territory, give this a listen.
