We are finishing off this week and this month talking about a real big release from a real big name! Having been half of the founding force of the mighty Far Too Loud, Neurodriver is no stranger to making kickass Breakbeats. Such is the case with "Snake Charmer" which wastes no time getting down to business. The face-melting bassline is pushed along by powerfully tight drums and a whole gamut of resonant zaps and glistening metallic synth stabs. Before long the distinctive Pungi hook kicks in, charming not only snakes, but any raver within ear shot! The ancient and mysterious sound of the Pungi plays off signature futuristic grooves and edits, building up to an absolutely devastating second drop.
Label newcomers Broken Eye, turn out a mind-blowingly impressive remix. Super punchy drums and a fiercely energetic bassline carry this one along with the momentum of an asteroid. The Pungi hook is frazzled and twisted, as if half digested by a giant robot serpent. Intelligently programmed, hard hitting drums and glitchin' grooves provide brief interludes before smashing back into the ripping bassline.
On remix duty Brighton's very own psybreaks ambassador Luqas turns out a much deeper interpretation. The on-beat bassline provides clockwork reinforcement to every drum hit and will have you bouncing on your heels as the floor shakes beneath you. The familiar elements of the original are given a glitchy remodelling, scattered throughout the track like sonic psychedelic molecules. One badass tune with three serious versions, "Snake Charmer" is rocking the charts with the original currently sitting at #19 on the Beatport top 100 Breaks and the others not far behind with the Broken Eye Remix at #26 and the Luqas version right on it's heels at #28.
