2011 is shaping up to be a breakout year for Aussie producer Rich Curtis. It's been a remarkable run that began with the 'Square Root and Big Sun' release on Replug in late 2010 and was furthered with great outings again on Replug and also Indigo over the first half of 2011.https://www.beatport.com/en-US/html/content/release/detail/393880/Face%20Valued%20and%20The%20Lost%20QuarterIt's safe to say that Rich is now one of the hottest up and coming producers this year. The 14th release on Cid Inc's Replug imprint sees Rich back on the label for his third EP entitled 'The Lost Quarter' which contains two new originals with remixes from Cid Inc. and Jamie Stevens. Rich's 'The Lost Quarter' original gets the EP underway with a downtempo low slung groove and a murky bottom end that that is abound with character. As with all Rich Curtis productions the drums are truly unique and really come to life as the tenuous atmosphere descends over the composition. The dramatic almost theatrical type vibe that Rich has created is truly incredible and would certainly be one of his most ambitious pieces to date.Replug label boss Cid Inc. provides the lone remix of 'The Lost Quarter' and he's transformed it in mammoth fashion to suit today's sought after cross over sound . As the groove comes to life the distinctive kick, trademark punch and unmistakable growl on the bassline sound as torrid as ever. The distorted sheets of hypnotic refrains lock the already killer groove even tighter as we head towards the drop. The apocalyptic sounding break is unveiled and the monumental build that follows will have your dancefloor in a decided frenzy no doubt.The second original on the package is entitled 'Face Value' and we see Rich showcase his unparalleled ability at crafting innovative grooves and superlative soundscapes that are aimed squarely at the dancefloor. The clusters of bass notes and deep stabs give the track an extraordinarily spacious groove with great drive. The dynamic textures of the low end give way for some delicate synths that oscillate perfectly for a memorizing, spacey effect that's undeniably cool.Aussie producer Jamie Stevens who is well-known for his work with Infusion and also his excellent solo productions closes the package out. Jamie was responsible for a few of last year's biggest underground smashes; namely his remixes of GMJ - 'First There Was Sound' and Antix - 'Lost In Sound'. For his 'Face Value' remix Jamie has come up with a genre defying dancefloor bomb which flows almost effortlessly with its smooth transitions and crystalline production. Jamie has used Rich's aquatic styled sounds to great effect in creating an ultra modern and energetic groove that's destined to rip up any educated dancefloor.
