||2.||"Desolation" (DJ Spider remix) (5:45)|
Dakini9 is Lola Rephann and has previously released on Plan B Recordings, which coincidentally she runs, with DJ Spider. Pretty solid release here on New Jersey's recently inaugurated Green Village. First track "Driftwould" is atmospheric dub techno that's immersive and emotional as much as it is tough. "Howler" is brilliant; a dark and introverted cut whose 909 kick tears through the speakers accompanied by haunting sound design and epic strings; just perfect for the warm up set. On the flip we have two versions of "Desolation" the original being a tough minimal house cut with its recurring "We are all alone" vocal sample. Not exactly the most positive affirmation for 10 AM dancefloors, but we still like it! The DJ Spider remix is surprisingly more ethereal dreamy and dare we say it; uplifting. Tip!
