Bred For Pleasure
- Better Than This Part.1 (Incl. Mak & Pasteman / Last Magpie Remixes)
Lower East | 15.02.2015
Lower East supplies a deep dark cut from Bred For Pleasure, a guise for Quintin Christian and Vandermee ‘Better Than This’. Released in the middle on February, with strong remixs from Last Magpie and Mak & Pasteman. This is part one from a two part EP.
We see the duo team up with MNEK to deliver the inaugural Bred for Pleasure release on Lower East. The original mix of ‘Better Than This’ kicks off the package, a mesmeric vocal-led composition laid out over seven minutes with weighty 4/4 rhythms, dreamy melodic touches, chuggy low-end tones and British R&B singer Aaron Soul’s warm and emotive vocal styling’s.
Naked Naked/Materials artists Mak & Pasteman reshape ‘Better Than This’ next, steering the original’s soul-infused vibe into dubbed-out territories with raw percussive elements, gritty stab sequences and looped snippets of the original vocal line. Rounding things off Mak & Pasteman’s Craig McNamara steps up for a solo rework of ‘Better Than This’ under his Last Magpie alias, taking a deeper dropped-tempo approach with smooth ethereal chords, wandering sub-bass tones and sparse rhythms to complete the package.
