Olmec Heads' latest moniker is that of Deckslaves and this latest progressive monster from him is on track to be one of the big tunes this summer, complete with a sexy remix from Kiss FM's Steve Smart.

For those of you who have watched the movie Ronin, you may be remember the theme song for the movie inspired by the Japanese legend . This latest piece from Westy Olmec Heads takes the beautiful sample and generates something for the progressive heads.

1. The 47 Ronin (Original Remix)
2. The 47 Ronin (Carbon Deep Floor Remix)

Taking a start with the original track under the moniker of Deckslaves, we get a tingling and divinely mesmerizing buildup for the first couple of minutes, which is bound to get the dancers in the mood with a steady flow of building blocks, beats and melodies. At just over the one minute mark, we get saw-action bass, where one begins to get an idea of what we should be expecting for the remaining track and before long, the classic melody takes off, encompassing ancient Asian influences and progressive warfare backing.

At just under the halfway mark, the break comes in, with an instrument I can only describe as enchantingly beautiful, before you get the "master of the samurai" history of the 47 Ronin... As we progress towards the latter half of the track, the melodic elements become more pronounced and I already find myself asking for a replay..

The Carbon Mix is courtesy of Kiss 100 FM's Steve Smart and brings in a different side of the Japanese story and what we have here is some dark and dubbed out funky electronic progressive, if that is meaningful as a description for this mix.

Subscape 1980's-esque German techno electronic sounds can be heard throughout the duration of the track, and this is definitely one dark monster. The thing with this track is that although on the surface, it may seem bland and non-evolutionary, this takes music to something else.

At first, I was bored of the dark electronic buzzes and repetitive sounds, but after a second listen, I realized that thats the beauty of this track. Succumbing to the dark sounds for the first few minutes, I was as taken away by what Steve (Carbon) did to the breakdown as I was with what Westy (Deckslaves) had done.

Chilling, dirty, progressive and enchanting is what these two remixes are about. Both remixes will get you moving guaranteed, and to put intro retrospect, this track can be compared to as a crossover to some Parks & Wilson / Tilt material combined with Gabriel & Dresden, whilst keeping things down to earth. Full of originality and depth, this has my pick for one of the top tracks of 2003 so far, and I say that without any hesitation.

Look for a release during the summer. More details to come soon.

The definitive track coming from my speakers at the moment, and with a bunch of junk that has released over the past months, this is the first track which offers something true to music. I'm not sure whether its the melody, the bass, the depth or just the entire production itself, but this is a top pick from myself.
