Max Ulis & Self Evident "Eastsiders (HxdB Remix)"

Vancouver is a hotbed for electronic music, and one of its practitioners, HxdB (pictured above), has provided a remix for the new record from Max Ulis & Self Evident, Eastsiders. Out soon via Tenpin, HxdB's remix of the record's title track is a bewildering trap door of a dance tune that seems to take advantage of not only the stereo field, but a vertical aural axis that drops frequencies in and out with startlingly smooth precision. One can almost picture an endless hallway out of a Lewis Carroll novel guiding the tune's progression, sounds flying by the listener's peripheral vision as the eternal-yet-blissful chase for meaning continues. This is indeed a DJ track, but a refreshingly off-kilter and zoned-in one at that. Be sure to check out the other remixes accompanying the Eastsiders EP, including jams from LuckyMe's Prison Garde and Fade to Mind's Cedaa, after the jump.
