AFK & Dustin H – The Morning Star

The second collaboration between myself and Dustin H. This time he came up to Victoria and hung out at Suite 410 for a couple of days. We had no idea what we were going to make besides something “really really cool sounding.” Our plan of attack was “okay, we have two days, lets do this” — which I find produces more good music than one might think. I think we really nailed it. The original I can describe only as Hybrid meets Quivver while hanging out with His Boy Elroy on a Starecase down to the Bedrock. That means there are big synths, some breakbeat sections, some four on the floor sections, some orchestration and oodles of atmosphere and other sounds that will make you go “ooooh” and “ahhhh.” His Boy Elroy, formerly a punk band, does an epic progressive breaks remix here. It’s slightly odd that he was doing the remix, as his remix of Blake Jarrell’s “Okoboji” was one of the big inspirations for some important parts of this track. I rounded out the package with a four on the floor dub which just thumps on the dancefloor. Pretty ridiculous on a big system, you just have to hear it, or better yet, drop it and witness.
