Artist:Moston & Malente
Title:Do The Right Thing
Moston & Malente return to Splank sending out a message to all the wrongdoer's and wrongdoing's in this world, encouraging moralistic and positive action amongst us all, with their new single 'Do The Right Thing'. 2 versions of an absolutely belter, which promises to further cement their position as purveyors of the very finest electronic dance music. Lars Moston has been hectic in the studio this year with sometime production partner Duncan Whiteley, honing their own original sound they've provided remixes for Fil OK and Daniel Dexter, whilst Malente has recently enjoyed a release on Exploited with the dancefloor bomb that is 'Hyperactive', as well as having releases lined up on 2 of the most discerning labels in dance music 'Fools Gold' and 'Southern Fried'. 'Do The Right Thing' has all the elements of a classic Moston & Malente production, an infectious hook, uplifting breakdowns and a vocal edit which adds a jacking groove to the proceedings. And just as an extra treat, there are 2 versions, one taking a more direct electro route, whilst on the alternative mix the bassline is twisted and wobbled to notch up the wonk factor. On remix duties, scene stalwarts Twocker step up first, adding squelchy bassline's, big room grooves and first class production, demonstrating why they possess such an esteemed profile. New kid on the block Clark Able shows why he's talk of the town with his version, dropping a completely original sound, going to work on the vocal, warped bass sounds and off-beat percussion.

Title:Restless/Organ Dementia
First up 'Organ Dementia', an uplifting track featuring a rasping bass hook, distorted organ pads, filtered disco stabs, and all locked together with tight skippy beats. Whilst for the flip, 'Restless' is a foray into 4/4 twisted electro territory, this one's all about the groove, with a warm pounding sub bass, electro hooks, infectious vocal stabs and the all important big clap, this one's a dj tool for all floors.
Title:Tokyo Loading
Tokyo Loading' is a classic Strider affair, vocal edits galore & tight as you like programming, with a Daft Punk (circa Discovery) inspired synth sequence breakdown slotting in between the punchy beats & warmly distorted bass hook.
