Baadman "Gambetta (BS1 Remix)"*Kitsune*
As of late, it seems that most producers who are on top of their game at an early age have little trouble getting noticed, but 18-year-old French DJ/producer Baadman (a.k.a. Arthur Dutil) has surprisingly remained a hidden secret, even with his first EP, Stab, out now on Kitsune. At the very end of the up-and-comer's debut six-track effort, Italian house duo BS1 takes EP cut "Gambetta" and gives it a few extra surprises; at first pushing the production into overdriven house territory before breaking the sonic pallette wide open with beautifully laced synth chords. At its core, BS1 's take is very much a hardened tune, but a sweet interlude in the middle provides just the right touch to soften its impact.
