Known for his groovy, melodic take on progressive house Paul puts his best foot forward with 'Main Theme'. Beginning with warm, pulsating beats and shimmering atmospheres it's an inviting first act. Sleek, meditative arps push the narrative further into dreamy territory as spacey effects and driving percussion fill in the framework. Playful and emotive, the main break proves to be the perfect centerpiece with its lighthearted mood and smooth yet powerful drop.
The first interpretation of 'Main Theme' is provided by Soluna who is making his fifth appearance on the label. As one of Clubsonica's core artists, the Colombian has grown into a master storyteller, with many of his productions passing the ten minutes threshold and unfolding into captivating journeys. His 'Main Theme' interpretation is no different coming in just under ten minutes and offering a wealth of scintillating sonic artefacts. It's smooth first act is both emotive and anticipatory, leading to an expansive break. At just over two minutes the centerpiece is a journey through cross cultural motifs and mesmerizing electronics, almost trance-like in a way and building in waves before the groove does finally drop for that magic moment.
One of 2017's hottest new names in progressive house was undoubtedly Dimuth K. The Sri Lankan artist racked up production credits on Balkan Connection, Movement Recordings and Proton's Particles. Now returning to Clubsonica following a remix of 'Yes I Do' by Movemé, Dimuth puts his own unique twist on 'Main Theme'. Buzzing synths and a rolling groove immediately grab your attention while the primary motif delicately gets worked into the mix. Its vivacious energy carries wonderfully into the main break where astral moods and decayed sonics capture your imagination, before the serene narrative transitions the piece to a whimsical finale.
The third and final interpretation of 'Main Theme' is provided by Federico Monachesi who is making his first appearance on the label. The Argentinean artist has always chosen his projects wisely with 2017 seeing releases on Movement Recordings, Soundteller Records and Stellar Fountain. Long noted for his pristine production Federico closes the release out strong with a superb rendition of 'Main Theme'. Backed by a spacious groove the mood is funkier, with broader appeal and yet no less emotive. Distinctive vocal samples and a simple but effective take on the original theme works wonders, while a celestial break serves to shift the narrative momentarily, setting up an even groovier third act. A wonderful remix from Federico which rounds out another strong offering from Clubconica Records. Don't miss it.
