With 'Sanctuary' we welcome back Betoko in collaboration with Dear Deer head honcho Alex Kaspersky, as well as George Absent to ICONYC. The trio, who don't need any introduction, as they are universally known, treat us with a brand-new track that oozes class and sophistication. 'Sanctuary' features rich driving textures; as well as euphoric and moody deep house vibes to satisfy ambient, uplifting and feel good needs, which are the keywords for this beautiful and extraordinary release.

Betoko, Alex & George open proceedings with their smashing original mix. The trio's maturity and musical development is in full swing, they kick off with a deep, hypnotic beat which is interspersed with subtle effective percussion a profound floaty grooves and indie influences, turning this one into an underground anthem with a very soul tangling appeal. Utilizing a hypnotizing groove as the basis of the original underpinned by a rumbling bass that gradually eases its way to the breakdown of breaks percussive elements before unleashing into a rising melodic hook intertwined with the infectious groove that fades in and out for maximum effect.

Italian Maegrit's interpretation opens proceedings on the remix front; he hits all the right chords from the word go. Maegrit's deep entry is interspersing with roomy glowing drive, filtered stabs and stunning groove which beautifully leads into a drop full of tension and excitement, with the understated yet driving bassline powering the groove along. He manages to keep the energy up, allowing the driving melodic house feel to shine thru over the many layers and textures to create a beautiful soundscape to round off this classy underground crowd pleaser.

German based Larsun Hesh's sound is a tough thing to pin down. He is a unique act in the sense that emotionally his creations carry quite a large scope. He is not afraid to explore esoteric or introspective themes and the end result is always a compelling one. Such is the case with his remix of Sanctuary, which carries many of his most loved production hallmarks. From a warm, meaty low end to icy atmospherics and an effects storyboard to get lost in, there is certainly a lot to like. The main break is perhaps the high point, with the mood shifting from emotive to ominous with an effortless ease. It's something you rarely see and he's pulled it off beautifully here.

With 'Sanctuary' Betoko, Alex Kaspersky & George Absent show that there're no boundaries, as this beautiful deep melodic release will leave you with many smile induced moments! 'Sanctuary' sees a worldwide release on October 19th, 2020 via all well-known digital content providers. Not to be missed.
