Wildlife! "M16 vs. SLR feat. Sammy Dread (L-Vis 1990 Remix)"
- Words: Patric Fallon
One of Switzerland's champions of booming, world-influenced club music, Wildlife! just dropped a brand-new EP, called Buckup (pictured above). That release holds eight hotly tipped tunes, which are comprised of three original tracks and five remixes from the likes of French Fries, Douster, and Adam Port. At the top of the remixer pack is Night Slugs label boss L-Vis 1990, who delivers an extensive take on lead track "M16 vs. SLR feat. Sammy Dread." The UK DJ/producer takes his time while building the intensity of his version of the once-dubby tune, though things are still far more hyped-up right off the bat. As he is wont to do, L-Vis drops a load of alluring polyrhythms—including a hint of tribal guarachero—and atonal sound effects into this new mix of "M16 vs. SLR," and in doing so, creates the kind of ominous groove that would otherwise be unavailable on Wildlife!'s new EP. If you'd like to hear what the rest of Buckup sound like, you can stream the whole thing here.
