- Gozer EP
Do Not Sleep | 20.03.2020
Dan Reid & Gary Benetton, who are collectively known as Collective States, make their debut release on ‘Do Not Sleep’ with the ‘Gozer’ EP.
Dan Reid & Gary Benetton have been making waves for a while now with appearances on John Digweed’s legendary Transitions show, standout releases on Knee Deep In Sound, We Are The Brave and Stil Vor Talent, and a uniquely twisted but melodic sound founded on impulsive drum programming. The Switch residents are no stranger to the top of the Beatport charts after hitting the Top 20 with their debut single, and are sure to return there again with this new offering, which has already received support from big hitters like Carl Cox, James Zabiela and Hot Since 82
Opener Gozer is a warped acid monster, with a bright 303 line unfolding over hard hitting techno drums and in amongst dark vocal stabs and huge icy hi hats. It’s a real roller to get huge dance floors locked right in. Stripe then strips things back to a hypnotic groove riddled with big wooden black hits and searching synths that survey the dance floor. It’s brilliantly atmospheric.
Closing out the package, and following up from his fully supported (Solomun, Loco Dice, Patrick Topping, Luciano etc) hit track ‘Krayzee’, Serge Santiago serves up a huge analogue mix of Gozer that is high pressured, hypnotic and perfectly acidic so cannot fail to make a massive impact.
