The next release to be singled out from the tracklist of Bobina’s thrill-packed ‘Speed Breaker’ album sees him teaming up with singer/songwriter doyen JES. From its original album version, the Russian studio-savant has developed “iBelieve” into an extended mix wonder – ready to take to daytime airwaves by storm and by night, bring clubs to their knees!
Setting a big precedent for his mix, electro-leaning intro-riffs and electrifying frequencies lift the opening minutes of Bobina’s expansion. Come the drop, he throttles back to slo-mo breakbeats and a thrummed bass guitar, letting the full weight of JES’ moving vocals deliver their emotional damage. Starting out bittersweet, tonally they shift throughout the break, finally up-swinging to ‘iBelieve’s positive, hope-filled crescendo.
