The Filth by Gamal Kabar
London based DJ and Producer Gamal Kabar is already known for his releases on Dessous as St. Sebastian and his remix for Jeff Samuel's 'Fire' on Poker Flat. Crisp drums, repetitive synths and a dark atmosphere characterise his unique sound.
Now Gamal makes his debut on Poker Flat White with 'The Filth', a pumping and hypnotic Techno-tune. The track builds over a tight kick drum-hi-hat combo and a super dry snare to pave way for freaky coltish and hypnotising synth stabs.
'Critical Times (We Are Fucked)' on B2 is a brilliantly reduced floorshaker. Gamal's freaky synths are well directed here and underline the urgency of the vocal shreds.
The remix for 'The Filth' has been crafted by Polish heroes 3Channels. The duo is already known for their releases on Trenton, Trapez, Crosstown Rebels, Dirtybird and others. They are also the guys behind the new project Catz N' Dogz and will release their debut album on Dirtybird in autumn.
They keep the driving tightness of the original while adding new beats to the track. They rearranged Gamal's freaked out syntheses and build them subtly, letting them erupt in raw and uncontrolled peaks. A brilliant remix for peak time dancefloors!
