Meant Records has been at the heart of quality electronic music since opening its doors back in 2008. The French imprint owned by DJ/Producer Remain has been behind releases from the likes of Rework, Vosper & Siskid as well as Remain’s own output and has garnered support from DJs such as Dan Avery, Horse Meat Disco, My Favorite Robot and Agoria. Now Remain steps up once again, this time joining forces with Throne of Blood duo Maxime Pasquier and Andrew Potter AKA Populette for a superb new single entitled ‘Discomfort’. Remain has been at the forefront of France’s techno/electro scene for several years now releasing music through labels such as Relish, Throne of Blood, Ideal Audio and of course Meant. French born Maxime Pasquier and US East coast native Andrew Potter met in 2003 and began throwing parties in and around NYC, they formed Populette in 2010 and have been at the heart of the success of the uber cool Throne of Blood label. ‘Discomfort’ is a superb slice of atmospheric, breaks driven electronica that truly showcases the production talents of all involved. Live drums are fused with dark edged synth lines, haunting FX and subtle vocal elements to create a swirling, disorientating, hypnotic record that is outstanding. The original version is backed up with a trio of remixes. The first comes from US techno heavyweight Troy Pierce who delivers a deep, dark workout that journeys to techno’s outer realms, next we have the ever-excellent Chloe who turns in a version that blurs musical genres with it’s techno come disco feel and finally Spain’s Marc Pinol comes up with a brilliant slo-mo rework that mines the depth’s of modern electro disco. The Meant label is certainly on a roll at the moment and this release is yet another sterling record for lovers of quality electronic music, enjoy! Already support by Ed Davenport, Gregor Tresher, Laurent Garnier, Roman Flugel, Krikor, Jennifer Cardini, Gesafelstein, Headman, Rework, Clement Meyer, Tim Paris, dOp, Mr.G, Ashley Beedle, …
