Smokestack is all about Paolo’s darker side. Intense, minimalist and moody, the game plan here is all about matching understated energy with a compelling hypnotic aura to create a powerful peak-time tech stormer. Booming beats, abrasive bass-licks and a wigged out flickering riff create the required mood before explosions of harmonic echoing keys provide the moment in the break.
Swiss producer Michal Ho, best known for his work with Berlin’s Tuning Spork label has been selected to provide the rework. Taking the melodic elements of the original and warping them with lashings of drawn out reverb, Ho has created a harmonic mood-setter that neatly straddles the line between groovesome, jacking tech house and slightly off-kilter atmospheric deepness.
