Local Boulder producer DexLab (a.k.a. Cian Favat), has been incessantly working his magic in the studio lately. Releasing high quality remixes of Peacetreaty and Neon Hitch already this month, Cian is on a roll and shows no signs of stopping. His sound is dynamic and constantly evolving, as all three of these tracks sound and feel extremely different from one another.
Cian has stated that he envisioned “Enemies” being played on one of those late-night solo and contemplative car rides, and I think he’s really captured that aura he was shooting for. The track starts with pounding bass and high synths more often heard within progressive house production, but quickly takes a dark after-hours twist with an alluring bottom-heavy synth and fluttering mandolin riffs throughout. What really gets me with this song is DexLab’s ability to transform a once-uplifting and positive indie-dance tune into a sinister and hypnotizing deep house track. Instead of Hannah Georgas‘s voice sounding beautiful and romantic within the original mix, she sounds haunting, ghostly, and eerie within this remix.
DexLab does a great job incorporating influences from deep house, progressive house, and indie-dance to create a great slice of late night goodness with this one. Be sure to check him out on Facebook and SoundCloud, as he often gives out free tracks!
