Michaels first track ‘Sona’ is best described as a deep pulsating Tech-House track. With pulsating synth stabs and a simple yet ever so effective melody. ‘Sona’s’ laid-back vibe is perfect for warming up any crowd.
‘Sona’s’ first mix comes from the Silver Planets signings, Bigger Than Jesus, whose mix is best described as a peak time Techno monster. Its chunky baseline, booming kick, rolling percussion, and heavy synth stabs guarantee to whip any dance floor into shape. Fans of the recent Bigger Than Jesus Mix of Fergie’s hit ‘The Larne Express’ will love this.
The second mix of ‘Sona’ comes from young producer My Tech Friend who delivers a mix in his trademark Glitchy Minimal style. With its eerie breath pad, bendy baseline and evil stabs this track is a cross between a wet dream and your worst nightmare. Think of artists like Xpansul, Alexi Delano and Troy Pierce then you’re along the right lines.
Michael Mclardy’s second track ‘Amsterdam’ is another Tech-House stormer. Influenced by artists such as, James Zabiela, ‘Amsterdam’s’ bouncy percussion, rolling baseline and rising pads gives give it a chunkier sound suited to peak time plays.
Fresh from his recent mix of Roland Klinkenberg’s, ‘On My Mind’ for Global Underground, Very Jon supplies a much deeper mix of ‘Amsterdam’ with a slightly old school vibe. He adds a springy lead sound and lush floaty chords similar to those of The Orbs classic track ‘Little Fluffy Clouds’. The combinations create a very different sounding mix perfect for anyone looking for something more unusual to help break up a DJ set.
