The ReWind series exists as merely an aid in the discovery (or rather, rediscovery) of the unintentionally forgotten, or the often overlooked tracks of yesteryear.
The third post in this series featured Chime, a 2007 release from John Askew. Don’t know who he is? Let me help you.
A prolific producer, with two decades of experience in the business, John founded Recoverworld’s trend-setting Discover Records imprint (sometimes referred to as ‘Discover Red’) back in 2003. Today, alongside the others from the Discover family (in particular Discover Dark), the imprint enjoys a very loyal following. And for good reason.
As if that weren’t enough, John is also a successful international DJ and the A&R for Oakenfold’s Perfecto Fluoro. If you’ve paid any attention to the Fluoro release catalogue in the last couple of years, you’ll agree that he’s been doing a cracking job.
John’s policies for Discover releases vehemently opposed ‘cheesy melodies, predictable clichés and horrendous, meaningless female vocals’, and it shows. As a result, Bad Apple is a highly concentrated shot of trance, overflowing with acids and powerful kicks, interrupted only by its melodic breakdown. There are only a handful of things that are better than the classic Discover sound.
I believe this is one bad apple you’ll definitely enjoy:
