The Original Mix delves deep into the progressive psyche with a blend of meaningful, lush bass tones that offer warmth and richness to the groove. Tight beats and shuffling percussions provide a smooth rhythmic flow as mesmerizing arpeggios cascade. Short, sharp bowed strings deliver the hook, cutting through the darker elements with a melancholic melody that adds contrast to the sound. Top-notch stuff that will not disappoint.
The music maestro Manu Riga is up on remix duties and once again he turns in a solid performance, creating a superb interpretation for our listening pleasure. His last effort here, alongside Phi Phi and their impactful Moon Dust EP, was very well received indeed, and we're not surprised given the consistent quality Manu Riga has delivered over the years. Held in high regard by his peers, Manu Riga has inspired a generation of upcoming and established artists with his unique production style and sound manipulation. A hugely impressive back catalogue on Bonzai and other labels is a testament to this guy's skill. Always a real treat to hear his latest offering. On the remix here, we find ourselves hurtling deeper and deeper thanks to a sub level, probing bassline that dishes out a menacing flavour. A superbly crafted drum arrangement stands out, driving the groove alongside some very clever white noise manipulation. Darker elements begin to rise up, creating a meaty structure that intrigues and mystifies. Subtle arpeggios slice through the murk and, on the break, we find cool spoken vocals that add character. An excellent performance once again from Manu Riga, this one is not to be missed.
