Still finding ways to expand upon their top-selling 2019 album album Breath, Desert Dwellers recruited artists from underground clubs and festivals throughout Europe, Australia, Israel, and North and South America who offer proper organic house, progressive house and afro house for their Breath Re-Imagined Vol. 3. Today thatDROP premieres some Deserts Dwellers techno with their rework of a Breath favorite, ‘One That Shows The Way’.
Treavor Moontribe and Amani Friend share on the premiere, “Many people don’t know that the earliest music we made together was deep tribal techno and house, so getting back to our roots with this ethereal techno rendition of our track “One That Shows The Way” was really fun for us.”
The Desert Dwellers create a euphoria-driven remix of ‘One That Shows the Way’ to close out the collection and entire remix album trilogy on a richly-layered psychedelic note. Finding a balance of psy-bass and techno elements, the duo plays with the original verion’s tribal vocals while working in a stimulating, club-ready beat. If you like this direction, then also check out CloZee’s recent remix of Lane 8’s ‘Sunday Song‘.
Due out Friday, October 16th, Breath Re-Imagined Vol. 3 makes for the third and final chapter in Desert Dwellers’ genre-twisting odyssey of electro world fusion. Thus far, two remixes for ‘Longing For Home’ have been released, one by the forward-thinking Australian talent Uone‘s and the other by Speaking in Tongues which arrived on the reputable, Deep House Moscow to further showcase this humble Southwestern project across the world.
Desert Dwellers’ international league of remixers transports listeners through surreal and digital dreamscapes with tracks by Uone, Berlin’s D-Nox & Brazil’s K.A.L.I.L., Hyperspace’s Dance Spirit, and LA’s Griffin Paisley, while offering raw and cerebral detours at the hands of Kensington’s Yuli Fershtat, Jamie Stevens, and California’s Speaking in Tongues. On the warm and evocative end of the collection come tracks by Portlands’ Luke Mandala and Copenhagen’s Djuma Soundsystem. All artists well worth exploring.
A tantalizing balance of dark and radiant musical energy that celebrates the diversity of each remixer’s distinct musical heritage, Breath Re-Imagined is both a memoir of Desert Dwellers’ reverence for uptempo music and a voyage into the soul of global dance floor culture. Vol. 3 opens the sonic gates to a realm of hypnotic and driving rhythms born from the interiors of the electronic underworld. Imbued with the raw and psychic energies of deep and ethereal techno, this 10-track opus draws us back to the dark tribal tech sound that started it all over two decades ago.
