Boris - Buzz In Mixhell Remix

Title: Boris 'Buzz In' (Scion A/V)
Artist: Boris
Label: Scion A/V
Release Date: 05 Oct 2009

Scion A/V do not hold back on the entertainment front! They constantly deliver quality remix packages from artists the world over, from every genre! Undoubtedly we’re very glad to welcome them back to Your Army shores with this fantastic release from Japanese metal trio band Boris. To top it off you’re treated to the trademark Scion A/ V remix treatment that your floors have all come to love …

Coming in at 132 BPM, the legendary Todd Edwards provides a master class… a simple but thumping drum pattern, cleverly auto-tuned and chopped vocal and synths, and a catchy melody make this one an easy choice for your floors to love. Check the dubby, octave jumping synth bassline for instantaneous positive vibrations. Mixhell's Hypnotic 4 on the floor dance remix is underpinned by a rising and falling arpeggiated squelch and driven by a monster kick drum. Somewhat reminiscent of a more industrial version tune from the late 90s it is at the same time extremely dubbed out and focused. Optimo opens with a funky hand percussion loop under which echoed out reverse guitar and synth arpeggios creep in, which slowly grows into a gorgeous, lush symphony of synths and drums. Clocking in at just under 10 minutes, the song never loses direction or feels static… beautifully arranged builds all the way through. Los Angeles' Nosaj Thing delivers the only hip hop tempo take on the tune clocking in at 96 BPM, under a simple, understated boom-bap drum pattern, dark synth organs and a minimal sawtooth bassline fade in and out while the haunting vocal works it magic…. spooky but funky.

Boris, formed in 1992, have released 17 studio albums and several handful of EPs and collaborations in styles ranging from drone, sludge, and doom metal, to psychedelic and noise rock. Always exploring new territory, Boris sound as modern and heavy as ever today, consistently pushing boundaries and redefining their sound. It’s great to see a metal band bond with dance music… quite clearly another fantastic feat orchestrated by Scion A/V. For more exclusive music and content visit the Scion A/V website …
