Gustaff announces his ‘Back On Cluj’ EP feat Chris Brooks on Remix


Next up on Black Seven Music, Kubbo Records frontman Gustaff delivers a whopping EP in the form of ‘Back On Cluj’. Following on from releases on Lemon-Aid, Distance Music, Libero and more, The Salamanca-based artist makes his debut with two original cuts and a pair of striking remixes from Libero label boss Dan Costello, Chris Brooks and Venezuelan artist, Marlon C.

Kicking things off, the title track fits the archetypal mould of Black Seven’s foundational acoustic format. Punchy drum work collides with the scattering of hats and shakers to build a shuffling groove. Beyond that, the track has a robust and driving low-end bassline accompanied by subtle synth hits and tonal percussion. It’s all tied together with frequent injections of a memorable vocal topline – a track with the whole package indeed!

Following on nicely from the original, Libero’s Dan Costello treats us to an upbeat adaptation of the original with impressive grit and gusto. Bringing a signature slice of his imprint to the table, this quintessentially groovy remix is pacey but still somehow pleasantly nonchalant. The real magic lies within the seemingly endless layers of perfectly panned and EQ’d percussive elements that fill every frequency field on the spectrum. As much of a sensory experience as it is a dancefloor heater.

Chris Brooks takes things up a gear and a few pounds too, with his roaring re-do of the title track. A ferocious spin on an already captivating track, this remix screams peak time crammed terrace dancefloor at the top of its lungs. Climatic builds and thunderous throwdowns to tie a knot at each end of its heavyweight underbelly that pulsates from start to finish. If you like your Tech heavy, this one will pique your interest.

An impressive package to continue 2021 in a big way, Gustaff’s ‘Back On Cluj’ EP (incl. Chris Brooks, Dan Costello & Marlon C Remixes) is proudly presented by Black Seven Music. We premiere Chris Brooks remix today on Data Transmission, check it out here and grab it here.
