Ctrl Alt Dlt - Pet The Ceiling EP - From 0-1's latest release...

Exclusively due out digitally via Beatport today, March 16th, 2011!!

From 0-1 presents "Pet The Ceiling", a smashing single by new Seattle producer, Ctrl Alt Dlt. Ctrl Alt Dlt is Chris Aldrich of Seattle, formerly Detroit. For his first release 'Pet The Ceiling', Ctrl Alt Dlt takes his creation and collaborates with Milkplant on engineering and mixing duties and delivers a substantial single. The original mix commands a powerful tribal Dub Techhouse attitude designed and tested for those who want to take it higher, sure to take them up to the ceiling. Unique and original, this track is not one to pigeonhole.

Starting off the round of remixes, Detroit (now Berlin) legend Derek Plaslaiko follows up his impressive debut on Perc Trax with an excellent clangy, raw tribal number that gets heady and spaced out deep inside. The second remix comes in as a long distance collab between Portland, Oregon based producer Let's Go Outside and San Francisco based producer Milkplant bringing you a no-holds-barred funky techno stormer. This track is all about the peak time hours, play it loud!! Following up is a phenomenal deep, and 'stripped to the essentials' crawly beast that is Sone's Dub Tool. One couldn't take a track and par it down to it's most basic elements any better. And wrapping up the remixes Aaron Nesbit takes a stripped down approach, yielding a fantastic raw flavored track reminiscent of something off early Hot Mix 5 (think Micky Oliver). As always thanks for the listen, and the support!!
