Crossing Over boss Jason Grey hits home this release with Activate, a progressive tech gem. The melody weaves in and out of a chugging bassline, layered with down-pitched vocal samples and laser synth stabs. A breakdown of lush pads and flickering arpeggios is mixed with a robotic beat drop, creating a mesmerising blend of classic prog and the modern day Jason Grey sound.
A solid driving bass sets the scene for Continue, the second track on EP 40 for Crossing Over Records. Jason Grey lays smooth synthetic melodies over a chunky groove that hovers somewhere between techno and progressive, building up to a downtempo breakdown and breakbeat rhythms. Vocal samples and synth bass strikes echo over acoustic drums and an arpeggio melody, rising to a burst of techno-inspired beats.
