impacted humanity across the globe, it strikes a deep chord in the listener's
ear and chest. Nueva new-comer Valer den Bit, from Chelyabinsk, Russia,
executes this idea to an emotional perfection with his original production,
'Meteor 15 (Original Mix)'. He draws from the experiences and moments
resulting from the recent meteor streaking across the sky in his hometown
and presents his emotions in expert progressive fashion! The beautiful,
spaced piano notes spread throughout set the melancholic, yet hopeful
atmosphere in the wake of destruction and loss. The running 8th-note synth
chord plucks provide the steady rhythm, accompanied by tight percussion,
which keeps the listener in that moment where time feels that it has slowed
to a stop, but everything else seems to speed by.
To complete the rest of this 4-track remix EP, progressive artists ArcHouse,
Artem Dultsev, and Vasiliy Goodkov give their own interpretations to the
'Meteor 15' EP [ND117].
ArcHouse transforms the melodic progression and switches it up into a new
syncopated rhythm and adds some floating arpeggios over top, in a bittersweet
yet sublime track with moving breakdown to boot.
Artem's remix starts with shimmering arpeggios and upbeat percussive thrums
right off the bat. Soon it drops into a subdued filtered sound; gradually
opening up into a full-on harmonic breakdown and finished out with a
Vasiliy provides the perfect contrast to the different influences to
'Meteor 15' on this EP; he harnesses the moving power of Valer's composition
and infuses the heat and intensity of the meteorite in his edged percussion
patterns, bass stabs/lines, and drum fills to drive a dancefloor for almost
6 minutes. His creative switching of the original progressions into a full
fledged, suspense-building, and energetic track makes this one that begs to
be played out to a packed room full of electronic music lovers.
Take a listen, and feel the impact of experience-turned-music through your
mind, body and soul.
