Released February 28th, 2011
At the height of their collaboration project Martin Dawson and Glimpse have again joined forces to stunning effect with this Crosstown Rebels release replete with Ewan Pearson remix. Organic live instrumentals and a heart-warming house sound are ever-present in this love- letter to the dancefloor and anyone likely to be moved by it.
The original of ‘No One Belongs Here More Than You’ is a smooth, gliding house groove with enough bass beat and percussion to keep you on your feet. Kicking off with a stripped down Afro-Latin house beat comprised of cowbell and marching drum roll, the track builds as the production duo layer it up with hi-hats and organ notes. Romance seeps in with the title lyric as it languishes over the luscious pads and warps and meanders throughout the track leaving any listener in a state of elevation.
Ewan Pearson alludes to the 80s disco sound with his finely tuned remix on the flip side incorporating strings and synths in an epic interpretation resembling a mash up between the Pet Shop Boys and LCD Soundsystem with added deepness. Pearson’s natural flair for remixing is in full effect here; it will funk you up in the gentlest of ways and leave you buzzing in its heady wake.
Glimpse’s experimental approach and innovative production techniques have an improvised, loose quality that perfectly compliments Martin Dawson’s infectious rhythms and affinity with the dirtier grooves and deeper end. It’s a tried and tested partnership. With EPs such as ‘The Flying Scotsman’ for Cocoon and ‘Runaway’ for 2020 Vision having already garnered support from the discerning pack - it would seem these guys are on a roll together.
Separately they are both diverse and accomplished solo producers and DJs. Glimpse has releases for Craig’s Planet E label, Buzzin’ Fly, Cadenza, Kindisch and Get Physical under his belt as well as a masterful debut artist album ‘Runner’ (2010) also on Crosstown Rebels that has been described as “truly inspiring”. Martin Dawson is a global purveyor of underground house and techno also gaining international acclaim with his 10/10 (iDJ Magazine), debut album ‘Chapters’ (2009) under the guise King Roc. As well as releasing under the name Two Armadillos with Giles Smith from secretsundaze, he has worked with labels such as Bang!Bang!, Dessous, STHLM Audio, Buzzin´ Fly and Four:Twenty.
