D 'n A turned a few heads with their first release on Muti Music 'Rhythm is Life' in 2005, Elixir is a fresh 'tribal-hyphe-breakbeat-electro' fusion sound that is indicative of the evolving sounds for the San Francisco Bay Area. D 'n A is a collaboration project between Dov and an-ten-nae who are well known as artists in their own right and at the forefront of San Francisco's electronic music scene with many releases and a multitude of club nights they have founded, they have their fingers on the pulse of the Bay and it's beating hard and tribal. This original track has already seen support from Freq Nasty at Burning Man Festival amongst others.
The remixes make this 12" an essential package for your crate.
Si Begg 'Genome' remix is one of Si's strongest dance-floor outings to date, utilizing his unrelenting bass production skills, this one is a driving bassline chugger that also drops to a half-time interlude handy for those mixing their dubstep with their breaks. The 'Noodles' man has outdone himself here. His 'Mutant' mix on the digital exclusive is for Grime & Steppy heads, it has enormous build-ups and basslines that could cause punctures.
Ruined 'Stranded in Paris' remix
This high level producer popped through San Francisco and gave us this handy rework under a pseudonym, hence 'Ruined' was born and it's quality production that brings a new techy twist to the term 'Electro House'. The 'Stranded in Paris' remix is a peak time track that is a little twisted too.
an-ten-nae's Baltimore flavored mix is an extra surprise for DJs who love those traditional loops, here infusing Diplo-esque basslines and booty shaking friendliness. an-ten-nae is a Muti artist who has also had multiple releases on Functional Breaks and Big Booty (Marine Parade offshoot). He was also hailed by Adam Freeland in 2003 as the best emerging artist in USA.
