Hitting the Balkan Connection catalogues in May 2016, Hungarian born Jose Tabarez provided a moment of magic with his "Stardust" EP. Originally including remixes from East Café, Simos Tagias and Anton MAKe, Yin and Yang now return to the track with two new interpretations.
Croatian pair Pacco and Rudy B need little introduction to the underground dance fraternity. Long-time friends of Particles, Balkan Connection and Jaksa Pavicevic's A Must Have, the duo has found themselves regular contributors since a 2007 debut for Home Made Electronica. With a trademark sound, it was with 2011's "Coral Castle" that the duo hit the headlines on Balkan Connection South America with an iconic track that became an instant classic.
Finding themselves very much at the vanguard of the progressive house sound, the Pacco and Rudy B remix of "Stardust" is full of the melodic flare that has become a staple feature of the duo's sound. Constructed within a framework of fizzing and squelching percussive cadence, a series of pitch bent effects, reverse phrasing and intricate spot effects, sees "Startdust" take on an innovative new direction. Evolving over its almost nine-minute duration, textured pads and rasping bass provide a darker new interpretation that hints intelligently at the work done by Jose Tabarez.
