Children of Tomorrow 03 comes from the always on point, Arnaud Le Texier. Currently riding the wave of support for his superb “Make It Till Monday” Ep on D’Julz‘ Bass Culture Records, the London based Safari Electronique boss leans toward the tougher end of his sound spectrum on the Ep. The crazy bells are out in force on lead cut “ingredients” as they pulse and warp to create a nasty groove. Argentinean producer Jonas Kopp steps up on the remix and immediately injects some industrial muscle into the original. Metronomic beats and and sweeping synth chords create a heavy yet emotional rework. Arnaud’s second original, “Interluc” is the perfect soundtrack to the Ep artwork. Straight out of an archive horror movie, its a wonderfully playful tool, for the brave.

1 – Ingredients
2 – Ingredients (Jonas Kopp Salt Mix)

Ambivalent - “Whoa I love this record! Kopp mix is awesomeness, as expected. I can also put the original on reserve for moments when it gets super techy. And I’m glad someone puts out adventurous weird B-sides like Interluc – which sounds like brought their Buchla to 60s cult ritual. Releases like this are missing these days.
