Pre-order now: Sp@sms remixed by Bloody Mary and Cosmic Force


We proudly announce the new Unidentified Pathos EP by Dutch dance pioneer Sp@sms, featuring unreleased tracks from his archive, along with two powerful remixes.

Utrecht based Arno Peeters, aka Sp@sms, returns to U-TRAX with a new EP that is a prelude to his upcoming full-length album From A 20th Century Box. As the title suggests, that album will contain previously unreleased material from the archives of the artist, known by most for his releases on Djax-Up-Beats in the 90s. The Unidentified Pathos EP features two album tracks, both receiving a remix treatment: opener Pathos is remixed by Berlin based, French DJ and producer Bloody Mary and Unidentified Urban by Utrecht’s hottest electro commodity Cosmic Force.

Pathos was originally produced in 1991, making it 31 years old today. Yet, the acid-infused, dark techno track still sounds urgent and very suitable for modern dancefloors. Bloody Mary took a classic EBM (Electronic Body Music) approach for her remix, which works perfectly for this track. The result is a pumping dance-track with a distinct retro sound, but with 2022 production quality, that will certainly rock the floors.

Unidentified Urban originally started out as a radio-commercial for Peter Stuyvesant, for the African market. Later, Arno decided to add some more elements to it, which resulted in this subtle, old-school electro track. Label boss DJ White Delight asked Utrecht electro sensation Cosmic Force to remix the track and he turned the track into a straight banger, adding pumping electro beats, a 303 bassline and some sick ‘Miami Vice’-like 80s drums in the break.
