We Are The Brave boss Alan Fitzpatrick joins Rekids with ‘Step Away’, a euphorically charged techno release featuring two remixes from Planetary Assault Systems.
Having performed across the world at the likes of Watergate, fabric, Shelter and DC-10, renowned UK artist Alan Fitzpatrick has continued to bring driving techno to the forefront of electronic music culture since the early 2000s. With a ream of releases on Figure, Unknown To The Unknown, Drumcode, Hotflush and many more, he now launches into 2020 with his debut on Radio Slave’s revered imprint.
Fitzpatrick’s signature, thundering techno cut ‘Step Away’ opens with spacey toms, industrial kicks, delayed claps, pulsing bass and atmospherically sustained keys.
The hailed Mote-Evolver boss and esteemed remixer Luke Slater serves up two propulsive edits under his Planetary Assault Systems alias with the first remix being otherworldly with reverbed stabs, subtle arpeggiated synths, minimalistic drums whilst the second remix goes into overdrive with analogue beat programming, computerised melodies and a harrowing sub-frequency rhythm.
Exclusively on digital, ‘Intro Mix’ emphasises the luscious chords and adds spatial risers to emotionally charge up the original before dropping into its infectious percussion.
