Disruptive Pattern Material – Necessary EP (Rekids, REKIDS179)
DJ Bone, Terrence Parker, and Scan 7 remix Disruptive Pattern Material on the ‘Necessary EP’, landing this May on Rekids.
Making his debut release on one of electronic music’s most vital labels, Michigan’s Disruptive Pattern Material emerges with ‘Necessary’, a Detroit indebted jam backed with remixes from some of the Motor City’s most influential names.
My first record on Rekids has a lot of firsts. The first “real” club I ever went inside was Detroit’s famed Motor Lounge, where DJ Bone was a resident, years later as a club promoter in Brooklyn I brought Terrence Parker out for his first gig in NYC, and Scan 7’s “Black Moon Rising” was the first Underground Resistance record in my collection … it felt only right to have the people that put me down this path be involved for this project. – Disruptive Pattern Material
Leading the A-side, the original mix of ‘Necessary’ loops a vocal chop at its core, weaving airy synths and bubbling, dubbed-out bass effortlessly throughout the track. DJ Bone’s remix sees the Subject Detroit and Encounter boss draw hidden textures from the original, adding fresh synth works atop the pitched-up vocals for a distinctly Detroit jam.
On the flip, Intangible Records & Soundworks’ Terrence Parker introduces skipping drums under a hands-in-air piano loop, effortlessly flipping the track into a bonafide party starter. Taking the B2 spot, UR affiliates Scan 7 blend rave stabs, 909 kicks, and rubbery bass for a remix of digital-only bonus track Freedom, the original of which is a hypnotic number carried by metallic leads and vocal samples.
