On the flip side of the release Dakosa step up to the plate for remix duties on one of the labels biggest tunes to date – “Beauty Falls”.

Dominic Ridgway – Ketamine
As the name suggest, a euphorically warped and spine tingling track reminiscent of ancient cracked records gathering dust in the corner.
Just like the illicit drug, this track soon picks the listener up and takes them on a dark sliding tunnel of various emotions and feelings. Subtle beats strewn over moody pads soon capture you in a state of ambiance making way for the enormous sub bass which actually blurs your vision when it’s dropped in the club.
Sensational work from D.Ridgway, this is timeless music and is sure to stay in the sets of many dj’s for a long time to come.
Dominic Ridgway – Beauty Falls (Dakosa Remix)
For the flip side Daksoa, step up for remix duties of the epic “Beauty Falls”.
Dakosa are one of the scenes brightest trio of artists, with releases lined up on labels such as Broken Audio, Digilab, Touched By Records, Buried Audio & Different Music.
Breathing a new life into an already amazing track, the trio comes with a more dancefloor origntaed vibe. Epic drum patterns and subtle whispers of the original vocal haunt the first half of track. Don’t be fooled tho, this track drops in with some excruciatingly heavyweight bass that will tear apart most sound systems. Accompanied by melodic and driving synth stabs which drift over deep atmospheres, this track is sure to impress even the most hard to please dj’s.
