Tronik Youth with his ‘Malice Of Absence’, the debut of Rotten City, presents us a trip to the dark, full of mystery, a 11-minute ride on slow camera, those slow tempos that love to Tronik Youth, with the incorporation of strange sounds, animals and voices that seem out of a horror movie, with these hypnotic melodies that draw us into the darkness of the night and fog, and the sinister inhabitants of this deep and intense trip.
For the remixes, first with the collaboration of Red Axes with the musician of Yovav signs a new amazing work, a complete reconstruction of the original, to add light and color to the remix, adopting sounds closer to the Balearic, supported these Balearic rhythms by the use of guitar and a cosmic synths, a wonder remix, magical remix. For his part, Richard Sen, with another completely reconstruction in a different direction, ups the tempo of the original to take it to the center of the dance floor, prints a frenetic and forceful rhythm, full of energy in the remix, with cosmic touches and great development in which the elements appear to complete a very complete remix.
