– Higher Feel::

Artist: Consistent

Title: Higher Feel
Format: Vinyl + Digital
LC: 15799
Cat: GH-21
Release date: 15.05.2011

Consistent’s second release on Shir Khan’s Exploited label sees them again share the same platform as respected producers like Adam Sky and Siriusmo – and like the first release, they don’t fail to impress. “Higher Feel” is an insistent rolling techno track that appears to focus on dub-fuelled repetition – however, it unexpectedly veers into a disco-fuelled breakdown and from then onwards remains a filter-fuelled club track. There is nonetheless an alternative dub version, and it is this mix that fans of Basic Channel and Chain Reaction will reach for. Its repetitive dubby groove and deep stabs are reminiscent of Pelon’s classic “No Stunts”, albeit infused with a sunnier, more upbeat feeling.
