So here is, how envloop records say their first “hello!” to the world: “Extraprotected” is a boosting and rocking d&b tune by Bremen, Germany based artist Mightiness aka Ralph Klenke.
Fresh and juicy, this tune is meant to rock dancefloors around the globe.
But envloop wouldn´t be envloop, if this tune hadn´t undergone some reworks by various artists from around the world, amongst them electronic music-pioneers as NYC based DJ I-Cue, well known as Hipstep-pioneer and one of the most reputed artists of Zulu Nation NYC and Jungle Sky Rec. NYC.
But he is not the only one moving this originally d&b tune to different genres: Frozen Smoke from Liverpool, UK, come up with a deep and dark UK Electro-Breaks version, Austrian producer derCube joins the party with a straight Electro-RMX and Hillberg is adding a sort of “Retro-1990ties”Style UK TechnoTrance variation re-awaking the good old times of Underworld.
Kooky from Liverpool, UK again, brings the EP back to where it started: Drum&Bass at its best, adding a slight uplifting element to the basic track.
All together envloop 001 “Extraprotected” shows a big range, both spoken in terms of talents contributing their versions on the tune, as spoken in terms of the wide and versatile musical range of this release.
So come and join us on this musical trip through the electronic music-universe!
