Title track NEVER LET GO is nothing short of a sensational festival anthem that is sure to see widespread dance floor destruction this year and beyond. Built on delicious pads and synth layers that drop in surprisingly after an orchestral break down. Irish singer and songwriter JAMES DARCY lays down some awesome vocals that really complement the production and add a warmth and "sophisticated" sentimentality to the track.
Second title track CLOSER is another very strong progressive house peak hour weapon that convinces with wide and powerful new wave chords. But still, Dinka worked out her uniqueness in a dreamy breakdown section, with some 80s like beat patterns underneath low-pass filtered chords and a touchy arpeggio texture.
FACES OF BENGALIA follows Dinka's successful and unique style of music. This ornate and melodic progressive gem invites us to lay back, close our eyes and dive into a world of magic and wizardry. It's a breath-taking moment, augmented by the gorgeous delayed vox and lead synth lines that fill out the soundscape. In the drop, the central groove teasingly returns with just a kick and bass construction supported by some jazzy chord lines, followed soon thereafter by the arrival of the full rhythm in full, anthemic force.
We're closing the EP with SPRING VALLEY: Yet another masterpiece of downbeat music, mixed up with some modern Dubstep drum elements. The melody sweeping up in the drops is just breath-taking, as well as the synth scape environment that builds the harmonic base.
The way Dinka combines modern club music with chill out, world and classical music elements brought her a wide diverse of fans from all around the globe. This EP is just another cherished treasure to add to the already impressive Dinka vault.
