Lonya Koval is a man on a mission as the multi-talented musician, global DJ and world-renowned producer who continues to lead the vibrant Israeli underground dance scene. Equally, Mariano Mellino has carved a deep furrow in his native Argentina. Known for his exquisite DJ sets full of colour and mystery, his productions speak volumes.
In original form, their collaboration track, 'Oblivium' is suitably transatlantic. Moody tones and a subtle beat quickly lead to a moment of calm before bass and percussive layers denote a shift in energy. Growing now in stature, the track takes on a more robust guise with additional melodics adding intrigue and depth. Saving everything for the third act where it goes even more intense. Stunning.
For his remixes, Lutzenkirchen takes two paths. The main remix sees him flex his techno muscles with a filtered saw-tooth bass taking the lead. Muscular and grimy, it builds with irresistible force. For the 'Alternate' mix he goes back to his roots for a guttural German trance assault full of angry melodics and overdriven kicks.
