33 Music close out the year with one of the most unusual house tracks of the year, an absolute doozy from UK producer Ed Lee, the appropriately titled ‘Down The Rabbit Hole’. Out on Beatport, Spotify and Apple Music, the single also bags a remix from imprint boss Dan McKie.
Both the original and the remix centre around one of the longest continual notes in dance music history, wrapping undulating bass notes, syncopated claps and vocal stabs around the core shaft of the song. McKie’s remixis more focused towards the dance floor, a driving rhythm from the percussion and high hats giving the cut more latitude. Lee’s composition, on the other hand, is one long dive down the sonic hole, unrelenting and uncompromising
With support from some of house music’s most revered statesmen, including James Zabiela, Luke Fair, Roger Sanchez, Desyn Masiello, Mark Knight and Hernan Cattaneo, Lee has been entrenched in the UK’s house scene for well over a decade. Speaking about his remix of Lee’s single,Dan McKie said: “I have loved this track for a while since I originally signed to my 1980 Recordings imprint. It was licensed to Claude Van Stroke’s Dirtybird imprint for a release on a compilation but I still felt I would love a go at remixing this, so Idid. My remix is clubbier and with a lick of ‘Dan McKie’ flavour hopefully.”ED LEE ‘DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE’ (ORIGINAL EDIT & DAN MCKIE REMIX) IS AVAILABLE VIA BEATPORT, SPOTIFY AND APPLE MUSIC ON 33 MUSIC FROM NOVEMBER 22ND 2019.
