A1: No Era
B1: No Era (Alex Jann’s Planet Transmit Mix)
B2: No Era (Secret Universe’s Biosphere Mix)
Tracks that successfully blend electro and drum and bass are few and far between. Thankfully, ‘New Era’ comes correct to partially address the balance. The original is just that, an effortlessly funky piece of work with a dark side to its DNA. The same is true of Alex Jann’s ‘Planet Transmit Mix’, which emphasizes the electro and subdues the breaks. Conversely, Secret Universe’s ‘Biosphere Mix’ lets the other half dominate over a dreamscape of what sound like malfunctioning, wasted synths. All in all, a veritable hat trick of tunes, each of them showing off something slightly removed from the other.
