Don't Stop After Midnight is a beautifully crafted slice that explores the deeper recesses of progressive house. Right from the off we're lulled by lush tones from the deep basses and well rounded kicks. Contrastingly sharp synths slice through the lower frequencies as does the crispy hi hats. Subtle arps cascade through the sound with sweet melodies at their core. As the layers build we are treated to some cool warped basses that tie the track together perfectly. Top notch stuff not to be missed.
Welcome The Darkness goes deep into the progressive house abyss with a sublime offering full of warmth and contrasting dark edges. Chunky kicks lead the way as a cacophony of percussions form into a solid rhythm. Cool vocals litter the sound adding character alongside lush pads and subtle melodies. The bassline drives the track brilliantly with a dominating power that will most definitely entice bodies to the floor. Excellent stuff.
