RIDIC019: Open Cluster - Remix EP
Release: August 09, 2011
01. Grotto (EK Remix) PREVIEW
02. Travel Without Moving (Beatsmack Remix) PREVIEW
Open Cluster's debut on Ridiculoud Records gets some serious remix treatment for our 19th release. EK makes his return to Ridiculoud delivering a massive, bass-heavy rework for 'Grotto' jacking the laid back funk of the original. Meanwhile, Beatsmack makes quick work of 'Travel Without Moving' by injecting some heavy drums and a groovy bassline to keep things sounding big and funky.
Mr. No Hands (Mixmag) - "Review: As far as up and coming breaks labels go, Ridiculoud is one of the better ones, though it’s sometimes a bit hit and miss. Getting the studio wizkid EK on board was a good move and he come up trumps with this tightly produced, electro influenced, peak destroyer. More like this please!"
Daniella Downs (Helltrack/Dead Famous) - "The EK remix is definitely the one I would play, hands down."
Llupa (YellowFinger/Ridiculoud) - "Digging the stompin' groove on the EK Remix. He is so good at taking the best bits and cramming them into an quick assault of beats and groove - no mucking around. Great to hear the funk set free on the Beatsmack remix - solid big room vibes, I think the floor will really dig this one. Great release guys - cool to see the remixes released separately."
Home Alone (Dead Famous/Ridiculoud) - “EK all the way! His remix is so awesome!! Good job from Beatsmack, too, but EK’s remix is just AMAZING!!”
Triple Agent (Logariddim) - "Nice techy business on the EK remix! Great!"
Sketi (En:Vision) - “Killer remixes here, love them both. The Beatsmack remix is super funky - will certainly see its way into my sets.”

Karton (Sound Of Habib) - "EK remix is cool."
Steve Maccabe (V.I.M.) - "I really like the Beatsmack remix. This is funky yet tough at the same time, will support this in my funkier sets. Really impressed with some of Beatsmack's work recently."
Mobius (Ape Music) - "The EK remix of Grotto is the best thing I've heard from him so far - will support."
Bill Vega (Downbeat/Badbwoy Bass) - “All about the EK remix, wicked stuff.”

Yreane (XSSR) - "Damn, guys! Killer after killer! Both remixes on this one are just GREAT! I just love the tough and powerful sound of EK’s remix, but those funky guitars from Beatsmack are great too. Can't decide which track is for me; I’m thinking both of them - 5/5 for sure."
