This release follows up from the awesome single “Detox” taken from Lee’s highly acclaimed 2009 album “Light & Dark”. Here Florida-based Lee Coombs and Lot49 deliver an exclusive album extra entitled “Punji” and in true Lot49 style there are a few very tasty remixes to boot.
The original mix is a no holds barred monster of a dancefloor cut and is a powerful example of Coombs negotiating exquisitely a mixture of the various breaks influences he has accrued over his long spanning career. As you’d expect with Coombs, pounding kicks, naughty arpeggiated lines winding snake-like through the mids, unnerving vocal cuts and a trademark breakdown dropping briefly into a hip hop motif before smashing back into the main theme – quite simply, top stuff.

On remix duties we have the veritable Zodiac Cartel and very little need to be said about this man who seriously laid down the skills in 2009 to position himself as one of the ‘go-to’ producers in the warehouse field. Here on Punji he picks up the theme from Lee’s original and runs with it producing a jacking bassline house classic - the very style that has given him such notoriety.

Completing the Punji package is our debut remix commission for Lot49’s “New Lot Competition” finalists The Omega Men. Here they take things a little deeper and a touch lighter on the theme to produce a distinctive late-night tech-house roller. Watch out for the breakdown on this one too - it’s massive.
