For our next Motek Music release we are excited to bring the cinematic soundscapes of Jackie Komutatsu. Warrior is a driving two track EP steeped in warm percussive textures and weighty synth tones. Title track Warrior has the faster feel of the productions with quick and constantly moving percussion sections. The highlight of the track comes in the extended breakdown that almost moves towards a middle eastern movie score whilst always keeping a dance floor feel before finally dropping back in with some serious energy. Epicure, the second track in the EP takes a deeper style, still with fast moving elements the track has more subtlety through lower drone synths and hypnotic beat parts. Crisply produced the track has space in the mix to allow clear syncopation of rhythms to come through, creating some serious groove. Remixing on this release it is a privilege to have Martin Landsky back with us putting his take to Epicure, and from South Africa Motek brothers Elleven and El Gordo who have added their touch to Warrior. Following the success of Martin's first remix with us of Chris Llopis's 'Clove' he has applied more of his signature sound to this remix. Sharp stabs, soft filter synth chords and deep beats form a powerful layer on which elements of the original can play off to create this dance floor bomb. Duo Elleven have played around with the Warrior string parts of the original to create an intriguing lead over which rolling beats and arpeggiating synths add movement and weight to the arrangement. The remix is finished off with the epic original vocal. Finally El Gordo, one half of Elleven, has put his individual take on Warrior and as with the Elleven remix, has kept arpeggiating synths that develop with the addition of a warping sharp string textured lead . The whole track keeps a fast 16th note drive and through its instrumentation still has an uplifting feel with bell synth elements and being in a brighter major key.
