As a traveling DJ, one thing you quickly start to tune out is the flight attendant’s safety spiel when the plane takes off. “Frozen Memories” builds a deep, techy track around a dropout with a female flight attendant saying those lines. The Israeli trio (Weekend Heroes is a duo) of producers actually incorporate elements of classic house, so much so that the track borders on future house, or something you might expect from Tchami or Mr Belt and Wezol. The effected vocals have a hallucinogenic effect, as if you are hearing them while floating in and out of of consciousness. If the original is hallucinogenic, then the Francis Preve remix has a stoned feeling with most of the original elements slowed down in a haze. The female part of the vocal is dropped in favor of the male voice – which is presentable but not understandable – kind of like if you are completely under the influence of something and can’t grasp what you are listening to. The sampled vocal loops comes across almost like breathing, as if you are hearing your surroundings changing with the beat. This is an odd way to describe a track but it feels spatial, like the environment of a soundtrack. Completely unlike anything Francis Preve has done before, yet fitting his style for creative spins on progressive house.
