  Audio Samples for NT023: "The One"    
Joe Silva Mix
JT Donaldson Mix
Jon Delirious Mix

  Side A
1. Original Mix
Side B
2. JT Donaldson Beats'n'dub
3. Jon Delerious Remix

Joe's original mix bumps along with crisp drums & subtle stabs before a slinky hook and vocal drop. The strong track elements are given the remix treatment by previous Nordic Trax conspirators JT Donaldson (NT012) of Los Angeles and Jon Delerious (NT019) of Calgary.
JT's mix is, in a word, dirty! Joe's chords get the workout as JT creates some fabulous builds over intricate drums leaving you feeling that less is indeed more.
Calgary producer/deejay Jon Delerious takes 'The One' peaktime with some West Coast percussion and that trademark production that had Jon's NT debut earlier this year on playlists from George T, Mr. C and Ali B among others.

    URB MAGAZINE 01.02
Joe Silva The One (Nordic Trax / CAN)
Our fine friends from the Great White North come with a bubbling slice of pumping progressive tech-house (hey Deep Dish, get with this!). Think Maurizio forgoing minimalism and working the main room of your local super club. Jon Delerious takes the epic approach, filling out the track even more. JT Donaldson gets my vote for his stripped-down and dirty dub.
