Michigan born house aficionado Rick Wade joins forces with Moteur Ville Musique, a label also based in Detroit and focused on championing artists from the Motor City. The deeply channelled groove of Techcreep is released this April alongside remixes from label affiliates Christian Burkhardt, Jay Tripwire and J Gabriel & Silent Revolt.
“I’m excited about releasing Techcreep on Moteur Ville, but even more excited about the remixes, because they’re stellar! Each version has a special quality, which makes me excited about playing them out at my gigs.” Rick Wade
Techcreep opens with a tribalistic rhythm of bongos and driving hi-hats, it develops with an absorbing melody featuring different elements of pensive synth that work around a hypnotic bassline. Frankfurt’s Christian Burkhardt, is first up on remix duty, creating a rock-solid beat and a heads-down infectious groove for the dancefloor. The Jay Tripwire remix is a typically minimal affair from the ever-changing innovator, centred on powerful bass and intricate subtle loops to become lost in. On the final remix, J Gabriel & Silent Revolt show off their unique flair, turning things on their head with lively disco-inspired strings and energetic bumping flow.
