The Original Mix is a solid, driving progressive mover with a wealth of scintillating sonic sounds on offer. Sleek, melodic arpeggios cascade through the track as a strong, bubbling bassline drives the groove. Gated synths lift the track adding a more energetic vibe and at the same time creating a dreamy narrative. A well-rounded slice that will definitely light up the floors.
Bonzai legend Cortex Thrill returns on remix duties, delivering yet another sublime cut. We never tire of the output from Cortex Thrill, which is fronted by top producer Ivo T Montina. From the sweaty darkened rave scene of the mid-nineties, Cortex Thrill has stood the test of time and evolved their sound while utilising the cutting-edge technology of the day. In its contemporary form, that sound has bridged the gap between progressive and tech resulting in a hybrid genre that is unique and inspiring. Previous outings here in recent years have certainly lived up to that, the last effort, Eclipticum, proved popular and was delivered with strong remixes which complimented the original beautifully. Here, the remix takes us on a surreal trek deep into progressive. From the intro, we find a shimmering, melodic sequence which grabs our attention. On the lower end a deep resonating bass lurks alongside a stuttering hypnotic synth as descending arpeggios glisten. A solid beat drives the groove with a steady rhythm, guaranteeing some dancefloor action. The break unleashes a beautiful synth-line and breakbeat combo before the 4x4 beat returns for the duration. Top notch stuff indeed.
