A year on from Profusion’s debut album ‘Where Do I Begin?’, First Word presents a trio of brand new remixes from a trio of exceptional upcoming producers. Following on from K15 & Emeson’s recent live project, ‘Profusion 2.0’, this border-crossing set of tracks spreads the duo’s multi-genre sonic palette even further.
For the remix of ‘Where Do I Begin?’, we head over to Vancouver for some funk-tinged, synth-boogie boom-bap courtesy of AstroLogical - much like the swagger of the original, this flip has a serious bounce throughout. Next, we return to the capital with an incredible version of ‘Times Up’ from Romaal Kultan (Touching Bass). The groove on this one evolves into a beautiful hybrid of wavy synths, future jazz and minimal bruk - really innovative blend of organic and electronic styles on this one. Closing out the space-funk vein on this triple-tracker, we turn to EVM128 (Selectors Assemble / CoOp Presents) for a deliciously deep broken beat rub of ‘Golden’. This classy refix has a little UK funky feel to it, laced with lush keys and strings throughout. There's warm summery vibes ingrained into this trio of tracks - Profusion once again providing music of the time, music of the soul.

Pretty easy to love everything about this recording. So, so funky and danceable. The synth, piano, percussion and deep baselines feel so good! Kaidi has a history working with some very heavy hitters. Great vinyl releases coming from the UK. All 4 tracks are my favorite! Rob O.
