An exercise in musical story rebuilding is upon us, as Research & Development Records prepares to unleash Volume 1 of Words In Colour Rephrased. This first foray into rephrasing has Alan Ruddick, Chris Voro and DeCode trying their hand at the rather difficult assignment.

Daniel Lesden & Cosmithex – Genesis EP

Few releases have made me jump and down with joy quite like the latest one in the JOOF back catalogue, a collaboration between Daniel Lesden and Cosmithex. Why the excitement, you ask? Well I’m not going to give it all away in the first two sentences, now am I? Let’s put it under the microscope. 🙂 Original Mix…

[Breaks Week] The Funk Lab – Reactive (Magnus Psybreaks Remix)

This series wouldn’t be eclectic enough without a seemingly mismatched itinerary, so after visiting The Mad House, we’re off to The Funk Lab. In case you’re not familiar, The Funk Lab is a moniker under which American producers Darryl Bain (aka B.Nice) and Clayton Swartz (aka C4 and House Wreca) released a good chunk of their material.

[Breaks Week] Chris Voro & Victims – The Mad House

We continue with the track that kicked off proceedings for Greek label Blacked Out Recordings. Released in November of 2013, The Mad House saw Chris Voro and Greek duo Victims (Dimitris Kolios and Lazaros Panagiotidis) join forces to create a tremendous psy breaks piece that would back up the label’s mission statement. As the name suggests, you’re in for a journey through the…

John Dopping – The Truth EP

Despite being one of the newest additions to the scene, Research & Development has managed to keep me interested pretty much continuously, even after the release dates of  previous EPs have gone by. After some great packages from DeCode and Chris Voro, R&D brings forth a mysteriously melodic psy trancer from label boss John Dopping, joined by distinctively structured reworks from…

Records after her debut single, Miss Mants delivers a double pack that will no doubt be enjoyable for any breaks fans among the readers.  In addition to the originals, Chris Voro and Slugware put their trademark sounds into the mix. For this post, I’ll focus on Chris‘ remix. Putting…

Casey Rasch ft. Taranhawk – Lords Of War (Chris Voro’s Kaleidoscopic Remix)

KSX‘s Critical Overload is once again in the spotlight, this time with a collaboration between KSX A&R Casey Rasch and Lebanese producer Taranhawk. Lords Of War is a fusion between the highly melodic sounds of uplifting, sporadic injections of tech, and a prominent psy vibe that permeates the track in its entirety. Between its euphoric breakdown and off-beat base release, it…

Nick Sentience – Scientific Advancement (Chris Voro Remix)

Energy levels reach new heights, as KSX’s Critical Overload gets ready to welcome back the man the kicked it all off.
