There's something about the darkness of the world that pulls us all into a state of wonder, fascination and calmness. Something about not being able to see exactly what lies ahead and that is exactly the kind of presentiment of this elaborate production titled "Parallels" brings. Right from the moment this spectacular original starts, it draws you in with the pulsing thuds of the percussions wrapped around a strong, crisp bass that cuts through the air effortlessly, almost like a warning for whatever the listener is contemplating at that moment. As the production builds, the stark, emotion inducing melodic line starts to form around and the effect of that is sheer breathlessness at how stunning it sounds. A well thought out structure of the melodic components, you can feel each layer and the way it all is incorporated together so perfectly, giving it that mystifying and dubious ambience. It is pure brilliance at how it slowly comes to be like a landmark monument being built
This electrifying release comes packed with 3 extraordinary remixes from some huge names that are on top of their game when it comes to anything they touch. The first is from the proficient Russia based Eddie Bitz who has certainly made an impact on the scene with his infectious, edgy and addictive sounds. He takes the foreboding original and adds a more steady, synth based formation that indulges more on those luscious kicks, groovy bass sounds and captivating build up that explodes into a blossom of all these wonderful elements joined in unison. Like parallel lines that always meet but never touch, the sentiments of how we as people can be afraid to delve into our darker side yet happily view it from a distance is reiterated in this track that makes us think, when do we cross that line., the sentiments of how we as people can be afraid to delve into our darker side yet happily view it from a distance is reiterated in this track that makes us think, when do we cross that line.
Next up with have this high octane remix just itching to burst through speakers, earphones and any other interface that can handle this powerful trance vibes. Fellow Canadian Andrew Lang takes it up a notch with this breath taking remix that changes the speed, feeling and sounds yet retains that intuitive aura that the original emitted so profusely. Solid chord work. beautiful break downs and an overall energetic flow just makes you want to drive down a long stretch of motorway with a dark sky meeting a burst of reds and oranges that is the sunset being overshadowed, a feeling that is so euphoric and can only be described by the quality remix that we have here.
Last but not least, to complete this amazing release and to end a remarkable line of remixes, it's the Brit based producer responsible for a superlative line of productions that are etched into our playlist, that's right, its D05. Completing such a variety filled package, he practically strips down the original to create this marvelous, relaxed remix that has an attractive way of building up the tension with the slow rising introduction of each sound. From the minimal percussions, to the steady but light bass, the prominent synth sounds that he is renowned for make an appearance in the form of delicate yet melodic lines. This lovely production is definitely vibrant, punchy and leaves a reeling effect of being surrounded by angelic movements, all depicted in such a way that you cant help but want more.
We hope you all enjoy this work of art from all these dedicated producers that once again show their talents and energy in the music they make. We will certainly have much more from all these producers for you to look forward to as music is endless as long as there is emotion, hope and togetherness in all of us. Text By: Hazra Begum
