Lenzman – Empty Promise

Metalheadz’s resident soul provider is back on (record) deck as Lenzman returns with his latest track Empty Promise.

A smattering of soulful lead vocals working around tight shuffling drums and some gritty bass, Empty Promise is trademark Lenzman business. Striking the right balance of dreamy pads and atmospherics with rumbling mid range, its got a pure and unmistakable groove giving this liquid roller a splash of underlying darkness.

Japan’s very own Makoto gets to work on a previous Lenzman classic with his remix of the beautiful Broken Dreams. Taking the original and flipping it 180, Makoto’s take utilises that unmistakable emotive vocal, a new bass arrangement and some extra added chords. There’s enough elements in this remix to give you the familiar feeling of the original but its definitely a rework Makoto has taken and made his own

Good to see the Dutchman with some new material on board. Empty Promises ticks all the right boxes for what you’d want from a Lenzman tune. As a huge fan of the original Broken Dreams I must say I do like what Makoto has done in completely switching the vibe up but it’ll be hard to top what made the original so good. But hopefully this is just the start of a wave of fresh Lenzman material for 2013.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
