Renowned Dutch artist Stephen J. Kroos is behind Mango Alley's latest single, the genre-bending beauty "Procrastination." Kroos has a gift for crafting innovative sounds that defy clear-cut genre labels and industry trends. The Original Mix of "Proscrastination" follows in this mold, as the song begins with a dark, almost techy bassline groove, but soon progresses into a lush melodic masterpiece. Specifically, at the quarter turn of the track, the bassline shifts into a more dynamic progression, and a variety of subtly harmonious arps begin to creep into the mix. By the halfway point, we are also met with a floaty, layered synth lead, which has the effect of "transforming" the track into a soothing deep prog cut. A variety of synth stabs and atmospheric sweeps add lovely texture to the track, as it glides along in the latter half.
On the remix tip, American sensation Nick Stoynoff has stripped down the original into a 'bright pop' take. A light house percussion offers a soothing backdrop to a variety of fluttering melodies, which effortlessly carry the listener onward. In the main break, we are also met by delicate piano and reverberating string effects, while a variety of echoing, distant atmospheric effects create a cinematic soundscape. This one is suitable for any downtempo house fan's after-hours playlist.
