Fozbee, Cooz & Smooth - Trip 950 EP [Amen Brother AB-VFS 008]

Coming in from the UK-based Vinyl Fanatiks-camp run by Brent Newitt of Aquasky-fame is the "Trip 950 EP", the August, 2k21 released collaboration single between the duo Fozbee & Cooz and JungleTekno pioneer Ron Wells a.k.a. Jack Smooth a.k.a. Smooth which has been put out on the vinyl circuit as AB-VFS008 of the Amen Brother label. Opening with "Free Your Mind *Jack Smooth Mix 3.0" on the A-side we're drawn into the center of the dancefloor after a long, atmospheric and carefully layered build-up, raving along to a scintillating amalgamation of almost Trance-infused 4/4-driven Rave x UK Hardcore for the early morning (open air) posse whilst the "Free Your Mind *Jack Smooth Mix 3.0" on B1 provides a slightly more Bleep-oriented, yet dreamy alternative for proper club settings. Furthermore, the B2 cut named "Redress" turns things upside down and opens the doors towards piano-led Breakbeat heavens, weighing in all the goodness from a well recognizable, most innocent piano motif to eerie synths, heavenly vocal samples and a rolling, uptempo JungleTekno foundation which makes this one our favorite cut on this 12" release.
