Stil & Bense return to the label with 'Cheat Codes'. Their last outing back in March of this year was received to high acclaim - with big support from the likes of Djuma Sound System, Eelke Kleijn AFFKT, Animal Trainer, Gai Barone, Marc DePulse and many more at the time. With their long-awaited return to ICONYC, the duo delivers a slice of summer vibes titled 'Cheat Codes'. The original track kicks things off nicely with its melancholic moodiness shining through as we meander effortlessly through club inspired melodies, while the sultry chords sit wonderfully on top adding an extra layer of depth.

Melody Stranger, who needs no introduction created a rework full of tension from the word go, as the atmospheric vibe subtly keeps you moving with warm tinkling sounds, a smooth edge and some nicely effected sounding pieces. We basically have the formula for a bit of a monumental outing. The sparseness is the key here, as this restrained gem works its magic while it plays away, creating a warm glow, creating an air of sophistication. "Essential stuff!"

Next up are Two Sins who mark their debut on the label with 2 remixes, the Russian duo known for their melodic techno influenced sound, keep the ethereal theme of the original alive, as the pulsating bass powers along, before its drum fills and general warmth all combine to do the talking. Like something from yesteryear, yet sounding fresh and exciting. Lovely rework from Two Sins.

The duo's dub version is a stripped back affair and takes the energy levels up a notch, but increases the melancholy with stripped back and lucid elements at the same time, before the luscious pads grace the rework changing the vibe and creating a blanket of warmth that wraps around the effected groove. It's all about the groove, cool house vibes and the driving beats that are working their magic around Plus Thirty's wonderfully arranged keys that create an irresistible rhythm while clever chords take the mind on a trip.

With 'Cheat Codes' Stil & Bense really show that there're no boundaries, as this beautiful melodic gem guides you to a full-on club laden, melodic hug of a release that will cause many smile induced moments! 'Cheat Codes' sees a worldwide release on August 5th, 2019 via every well-known digital content provider. Not to be missed.
