Last weekend, Dyzphazia and DJ Hellfury released FFMEP001, the first Freeformatted EP, as a follow up from the excellent Freeformatted Vol. 2 compilation album. This EP contains remixes of some of the tracks from the album, and features not just freeform, but also psy-trance and chill-out stuff as well.

And all for the can’t-be-beaten price of FREE!

Tracklisting:
Evolutionize – Pain (Alchemiist Remix)
MHX – Gray Death (Kranic vs Tekbet Remix)
MHX – Gray Death (Sky Dragon Remix)
MHX – Gray Death (Blue Phoenix’s After Life Remix)
Nomic – Innocence (Evolutionize Remix)
Qygen – Supersonic Speed 2013 (DJ Triex Remix)

Here are my three fave tunes from the EP:

Evolutionize – Pain (Alchemiist Remix)

Alchemiist has been one of the rising stars of the scene over the last two years, with his nasty Finrg-meets-Hard-NRG take on freeform, and he doesn’t disappoint at all here, transforming Evolutionize’s Pain into something beautiful and terrifying. From the beginning, skittering synths and sleek beats drag you to an emotional piano-driven breakdown before the monster main riff comes surging in. Awesome!

Nomic – Innocence (Evolutionize Remix)

Frankie ‘Evolutionize’ Greco takes on Innocence by Nomic and really nails it down, by injecting a fresh energy alongside the melancholic emotion of the original. Quality work.

MHX – Gray Death (Blue Phoenix’s After Life Remix)

Last up we have something very different – Blue Phoenix’s utterly unexpected, yet delightful, downtempo/chillout refix of Gray Death by MHX. A lovely surprise.
