Two standout talents in Trance and Progressive, Shawn Mitiska and Sedi, have joined forces on "Double Tap," a jubilant, peak-hour release, featuring an equally powerful remix by fellow American sensation SNR. Shawn Mitiska is one of the most accomplished artists on our imprint, having written numerous top-charting singles in his illustrious career. Most recently, his remix of Dan and Sam feat. Maxx Hennard's "Walls" appeared on Above and Beyond's "Group Therapy" radio show three weeks in a row. Sedi and SNR have also been featured recently on the show, as well as "Jaytech Music" and Myon and Shane 54's "International Departures."
The Original Mix kicks out of the gate with the main chords, soon reinforced by a stormy groove. Light arps begin to fill out the soundscape as well, followed by one of the most enduring motifs in the track: a series of angelic vocal samples, which truly infuse the track with an ethereal, floating-on-air quality. In the main break, we are unexpectedly met by a poignant piano score, coupled with an equally moving string theme. The latter half of the tune, following a ferocious drop, features all of these beautiful melodic elements in perfect unison.
With a slew of well-supported singles and remixes this past year, including "Beautiful Change" (a collaboration with Rikkaz and Jan Johnston) and "Kumba," as well as numerous DJ events at some of the biggest festivals and clubs in California, it is no wonder that Bay Area-based talent SNR is making waves. His innovative, genre-bending style is on full display in his "Double Tap" remix, which kicks off with a stadium-rocking bassline and layered lead chord sequence. A short mini-break at the quarter turn makes way for a wildly euphoric melody, coupled with the heavenly vox. In the main break, SNR treats us to a short progressive dubstep interlude, followed by an inspired and truly explosive drop.
