The feel of Ormiston’s new EP is undeniable. Titled Hammer Down, theLisbon Lux Records release just keeps on knocking! Well know producers Fred Falke, Das Mörtal, and French Fox have each taken a swing at remixing songs from Ormiston’s previously released project by the same name.
‘Hammer Down (Fred Falke Remix)’ is a combination of morphing synths and amplified guitars reminiscent of the ‘80s, while in contrast, a heavy downbeat and analog tones blend to create a disco-era flavour. Sandwiched between two retro compositions,the ‘Green With Envy (French Fox Remix)’ is a festival finisher. It is both danceable and nostalgic; the type of song you hear and immediately time travel to your most memorable dancefloor experiences.
A punchy track, ‘Better Days (Das Mortal Remix)’ puts the finishing touches on this EP. Let us call it the proverbial cherry. Forward-driving and energetic, the producer went bold and nailed the landing. This song is a strong end to a dynamic project.
