Tronic supremo Christian Smith and Brazil’s Wehbba have been busy creating a series of innovative single releases together that will be known as the Passion Over Fashion – Trilogy.  In a perfect storm meeting of musical minds these two maestros have come together in the studio on a creative high after their recent, individual, critically acclaimed artist albums, namely “Omakase” and “Square Two”.

Given that they have remixed a number of huge, high profile releases together in recent times – Funk D’Void’s classic “Diabla”; Laurent Garnier’s “Flashback” and Bushwacka’s “Westside” – it seems amazing that this is the first time that they have worked on a series of original tracks together!

Has the wait been worth it? You bet! Across the 3 releases, Christian Smith and Wehbba explore and innovate to an exceptionally high standard, creating 6 huge dancefloor moments that respectfully touch base with their diverse influences, drawn from the likes of Detroit Techno, Chicago Acid House and 80’s Hi-Nrg! Excited?

Pt.1 is already making waves this week…

Laurent Garnier – 2 very cool tracks!!
Sasha – Monsters!!!
Oniris – Tronic is one of my favourite labels!! Amazing tracks here!
Macromism – this is music! Great work!
Jewel Kid – cool tracks, cant pick a fave here!

“Second Life” is pure peak-time techno of the highest order that channels the soulful brilliance of the best of Detroit into a huge ball of positive energy, showcasing a deeply hypnotic creative streak from this superb partnership. “Centauri” focuses on the E-Dancer style bassline techno with equal gusto, resulting in a supremely euphoric, musical masterpiece.
