Back at the dawn of the summer, Infinity Ink unleashed ‘Infinity’, a track that quickly became the seasons most ubiquitous and biggest selling. Now that the sun is fading and the closing parties are drawing near, Dirtybird heavyweight Claude VonStroke and Hot Creations homeboy Richy Ahmed put their own stamp on the cosmic garage anthem with the long awaited ‘Infinity Remixes’.
Long-term friends and cohorts Ali Love and Luca C succeeded with something quite extraordinary in their new production guise as Infinity Ink. Already amassing a legion of support and an escalating fan-base with debut ‘Games’ on Hot Creations, their next instalment presented a unique cosmic take on garage and struck a chord with dancefloors around the globe and quickly became the Ibiza summer anthem for this year. One of Crosstown Rebels most highly anticipated records of recent times, ‘Infinity’ and its intoxicating qualities created a nigh on sonic hysteria this summer becoming the signature tune of many a poolside and disco. Championed by major players Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler, Damian Lazarus, Lee Foss and Art Department, this ground breaking piece of leftfield garage along with Ali’s trademark evocative vocals, placed Infinity Ink firmly on the map as breakthrough artists of 2012.
After the legend Todd Edwards delivered what was arguably his best remix in years on the original release, two producers, each voyaging to totally different dimensions bring ‘Infinity’ into the next party season. First up, founder of pioneering San Francisco imprint Dirtybird Claude VonStroke, submerges the original in a pool of futuristic, spaced out percussion, warping loops and cosmic FX – bestowing that Barclay brand of dirty, quirky funk.
For his Crosstown Rebels debut, Richy Ahmed steps back in time to 80s Chicago, cutting and manipulating Ali’s vocal to a deep old school drawl reminiscent of classic Dance Mania Records. With a rude analogue bassline and retro piano driving into a full on acid work out, this beast of a track is sure to do some serious damage to the dancefloor in its own right.
