Andrea Oliva – Vermona (Inc. Steve Rachmad & Sterac Remixes) [Cuttin’ Headz]
November will see The Martinez Brothers’ Cuttin’ Headz imprint return with Andrea Oliva’s ‘Vermona’, backed with Steve Rachmad and Sterac remixes. 2016 has been another year to remember for Swiss producer Andrea Oliva. With releases on labels like Desolat and Knee Deep In Sound, a Radio 1 Ibiza Essential Mix and worldwide club nights for ANTS on going throughout the year, the upward trajectory seems set to continue for this ever-evolving artist and here we see him joining the roster of the every impressive Cuttin’ Headz imprint.
Andrea Oliva’s original mix of ‘Vermona’ takes the lead and sees the swiss producer fusing menacing synth drones and rumbling low end hits with his signature undulant energetic drum style.
Steve Rachmad steps up next to rework ‘Vermona’ under his own name first of all, delivering a smoothly unfolding six and a half minutes of raw bass stabs and upfront percussion before the latter stages introduce the original’s eerie synth lines. Then to complete the package Rachmad turns in an inrerpretation as Sterac, delivering a more robust take on things via hypnotic rhythms, mind-bending loops and subtle evolvements.
