Dallas-based house music label 3345 Music is pleased to present this debut release from the Texas production duo Vital and Hubb. The two have tracks under their belts individually, and crossed paths just last year. Vital and Hubb had many shared musical interests and philosophies so the seed for collaboration was instantly planted. “Switchback” is the fruit of the combined forces, a wonderfully groovy and deep piece of house music ready to warmly flow out of club sound-systems. Light tech-house elements, punchy vocal hits, and spot-on percussion accentuate the atmosphere making for an exceptional late night cut.
Loads of top notch remixes of “Switchback” are also included in the package. Denver’s Nick Papageorgio (London West) leads the charge with a dreamy but tough interpretation filled with swirling pads and and steady kick. The legendary Demarkus Lewis (Grin Music) is up next, delving into exotic, rhythmic territories with a lovely remix. Sharp beats, warm bass, and evocative atmospherics make for a stand-out treatment. Pointbender (Harmonious Discord) then reworks “Switchback” into a snappy and bouncy tech-house builder. Tim Angrave, host of the popular Chillout Lounge Mix podcast, provides a downtempo, panoramic version that is perfectly suited for blissful ‘back to mine’ sessions. Rounding out the set is the Echo Conscious Mix from Texas electronica producer Molecule, thriving on a warm kick and nearly ambient soundscapes for an icy, ultra-deep tech-house excursion.
