Powerplant "Blame"

Out Now on Release Records

Powerplant head back to Release Records for their second release on the label. Kiki Stewardson and John Morgan are well known for their bottom heavy progressive tracks and this is another shining example of what they do so well. Early support for 'Blame' has come from all the heavyweights, from Sasha and John Digweed, to Chris Fortier and Nick Warren, and surely it won't stop there.

Housey drums backed with a thumpy bassline start things off. The bassline grows in all the right places, while female vocal snippets lay into the groove. Trippy liquid effects on her voice swirl with light synths, while a chord progression comes in from behind. A quality progressive work out meant for destroying floors.

'Luke Chable' challenged himself on the remix. His signature mental cut up vocal work starts in with just a high hat and a low thump building into a fat bassline. A lovely twinkling melody crawls in shining in the background. Another layer of synths move in harmonizing and bringing the song up and up and with a quick change they all fall off into a breaky beat that turns it all around once again. Complicated drum patterns, sparkling melodies and a thick bassline are the stand out bits that makes this tune absolutely brilliant.

Powerplant release another quality track on Release Records, and backed with a fantastic remix by Luke Chable you can't go wrong. This is a storming tune built for big atmospheres and rooms and has a massive appeal that stretches right across the board.
