"The long awaited return of Deadbeat on Cynosure has finally come. This time Deadbeat appears alongside guest remixer, producer, programmer, techno legend Monolake. Random Brown is a rarity of an EP due to Monolake's sparse appearances as a remixer. Both artists also take a much different approach to these remixes than what would be considered their signature styles. Deadbeat dives away from his usual ~scape dub style and fuses his signature use of sub lines and lust atmosphere into a straight up 4/4 on the floor showdown. The Random Brown venture starts off with Deadbeat's original and delivers a dose of shuffled, slinky, digital brown that simply evokes dancefloor madness. Drippy liquid like filters pop and bounce through the mix as rolling bass lines keep the funk alive whilst a melody from some other planet creeps over Deadbeat's audio debauchery. Give it a flip and you'll hear what Monolake has to say about it. Bringing things back to the basement, Robert Henke slaps the funk right out of Deadbeat's original with an industrial like reverb and summons forth a layer of darkness unwitnessed to these ears. With a stomping configuration of beautiful menace, Monolake takes things back to the early days of Tresor in Berlin. The Random Brown EP collaboration is not the first time Deadbeat and Monolake have combined their skills on musical excursions. Both have played live together and via the web at several festivals including Berlin's Transmediale and Montreal's infamous Mutek festivals. This EP is most definitely the yin of techno's future and the yang of techno's repast all summed up with two extraordinary mixes."
