"Silver Bullet"

Christian Smith & John Selway

A1: Silver Bullet
B1: Silver Bullet (Slam Remix)

Ovum is proud to bring you a release from Christian Smith & John Selway. Known for their amazing releases on Tronic , Underwater, and Intec are finally a part of the Ovum Family. They deliver a main room monster in Silver Bullet. This bass driven monster builds to a huge tension filled breakdown that comes back in with a punch that will blow up any floor. Slam has delivered a percolating remix that has a very old school feel to it. This could be played in a techno set as well as a house set. A very diverse package that should be in every DJ's record box.

This Record was one of the biggest records of the closing parties in Ibiza this summer. It was an anthem at Carl Cox's closing party at Space, being played by Carl, Yousef, and Wink! Numerous plays on Radio 1 by Fergie, James Talk, and The Trophy Twins. This release is receiving full support from Wink, Laurent Garnier, Carl Cox, Adam Beyer, Marco Bailey, Hernan Cattaneo, Chris Fortier, James Mowbray, Pascal F.E.O.S., Heiko M/S/O, and Lawrence.

Check out the feedback

Aldrin (Zouk) “The slam mix works for me”

Alex Parsons (Brique Rouge) “Feeling the Slam mix... Nice touch”

Anil Chawla (Mongo Bongo/MOS Radio) “The original is very cool... Nice and dark. I love it when it goes into a frenzy at around half way through with shit-loads of white noise all over the place. Will be keeping for those 4am twisted moments. Slam mix is cool, the percussion is amazing and the track is very hypnotic. I like the way it doesn't really do anything until the first break then the white noise hits again! Another one for 4am”
