After being played a lot by DJ’s that push things forward a lot, Pangaea finally decide to release one of the most interesting advancements in both UK garage and dubstep. His killer 12″ from last year on Hessle Audio was one of the most groundbreaking releases that year – ‘Memories’ is on the brink of leaving the same mark on 2009.

The stripped back and heavily maintained beat keeps the floating pads and other sonic structures right on the edge during the entire track duration, as well as letting the vocal take over almost everything on the track – in a VERY positive way.

Studying the beat allows yourself to get lost into it, letting the mesmerising vocal push everything into a higher state. The track is very surrealistic but also very direct, with absolutely no excess elements, which maintains the focus of the present moment within the track.
