Mikas and Sage are on a roll with a string of quality productions. Their latest two releases 'Shaken Not Stirred' and 'Eternal' were signed on Terminal-4 Records and Black Hole Recordings respectively. Now it's time for them to strike on Progressive Grooves again with a massive anthem.
High and Dry is a genre-crossing tune combining elements of Prog, Trance and Tech together in one. The video kicks off with a rock-solid Prog beat and a tweaking sound slowly building up the tension. We see a lost soul walking the empty, cold streets of a major city at night, with no plan nor destination. When the tweaking ends in a frenzy, a chunky trance melody takes over; nicely fitting with the big bass line. That moment takes us to the club where Mikas and Sage are throwing it down.
The official release date for High and Dry will be January 30rh and will feature additional remixes by other talented names from the scene.
Both DJ Mikas and DJ Sage have their own weekly radio shows syndicated to various radio stations.
