Creative powerhouse Gabe returns to Sprout with relative newcomer, Rikfell with the new single, ‘Waterfall’ featuring a huge Doctor Dru remix.
Gabe needs little introduction. Signed to a bewildering number of labels including Bonzai, Renaissance, Suara, Tronic and Get Physical, in recent times Gabe’s focus has been on developing a live show marrying his love of the studio with the thrill of playing to his adoring fans. Brazilian sensation Rikfell is still making his mark, but with the likes of Gabe, Solomun and Maceo Plex among his growing legion of fans, it won’t be long before he’s a household name too.
Starting innocently enough, ‘Waterfall’ is a delicate, considered slice of contemporary progressive house with a gutsy low end that never fails to get the party moving. Bursting with sass and sparkle, it sashays along with gay abandon and a cheeky smile, Elegantly the synths weave in and out while the steadfast bass growls from the sidelines. Powerful and understanded magnificents. On remix duties, Doctor Dru fresh for recent successes on Jeudi Records provides an harmonic, uplifting version focused on well designed percussive additions to the main motifs.
