Pole Folder "Salvation On Slavery Sins"

Out Now on Bedrock Records

Aside from 2004's 'Protected', we've not heard too much in the way of original production from Belgian producer Benoit Franquet over the past months, and the reason for this is that he's been locked away in his 80Hz studio working on his inaugural artist album 'Zero Gold', a conceptual project that spearheads Bedrock's move into a more artist led direction and with it's imminent release upon us, the first single 'Salvation On Slavery Sins' arrives to whet our appetite for the main course.

Bringing us his own unique take on the track, 'Nick Muir' strips things right back and constructs a superb throbbing mix, it's electro-edged bass and rippling synth lines remaining true to the dark and dirty mood of the original, but bringing a fierce and highly satisfying tempo into the equation with tremendous results.

Pole Folder's own 'Regenerated Mix' builds on the foundations of the version found on 'Zero Gold', reworked slightly with the dancefloor firmly in mind. From it's downtempo lead, we are taken through a layered soundscape of trippy sounds and rhythms, that whilst not having the dramatic presence that 'Dust' or 'Apollo Vibes' brought to the fold, is vintage Pole Folder nevertheless.

As the lead single to be taken from the eagerly anticipated album, 'Salvation On Slavery Sins' is a taster of the more club minded side of the album, but the truth of the matter is this is merely the tip of the iceberg, and you should be tracking down the album right about now.
