Jade "A Day In The Life Of An Eastern Assassin"

Out Now on Method Records

The texan wonderkid of Method returns, with the follow up to the acclaimed 'The Safar' which was championed by Pete Tong and even featured on his Twisted Beats cd. 'A Day In The Life Of An Eastern Assasin' has already been featured on Sander Kleinenberg's Nu Breed album, Parks and Wilson's Painting On Silence and Taylor's Synathesia album, with more offers in the pipeline and support from the usual suspects. Already this looks likely to be a huge success for Method.

Influenced by a chance meeting in Hollywood's Chinatown with a mysterious character, the 'Hollywood Mix' gives us a slow journey through the dark stormy intro, introducing strumming mandolins within the bassline, interwoven with trippy soundtrack effects and a build up into a percussive progressive house belter.

'Ben's Funky Apartment Mix' incorporates a chunkier feel to the bassline, giving the track a chugging feel than twists and weaves in and out of the mandolines, before the stormy effects give way to a trippy vocal. A grower of a track just perfect for those mid set buildups.

Peter Martin is a young producer with a bright future in front of him. Not one to rest on his laurels, watch our for many new tracks and remixes from this guy, including a set of remixes of this superb track.
