Hamed's continually evolving creative output has melded well with Estroe's intelligent take on electronica. 'Toro' is a uniquely groovy construction with well carved bass stabs and a nice complement of shuffling drums and colourful electronics. A backdrop of delicate texture only adds to the timeless vibes and the soothing hypnotic waves which dominate the middle section are the icing on the cake.
Also included on the release are two additional remixes by Estroe and Beat Syndrome. Estroe's 'Introvert' interpretation strips the groove down a touch with a complement of muted beats, meandering musical themes and quirky electronics. As the piece develops tonal shifts and radiant textures add further depth to the production which already sits as a highly stylized piece of modern day electronica.
Closing the release out is Beat Syndrome's remix which brings things a touch closer to the bigger dance floors. Hamed's well sculpted beats, rising tensions and distinctive take on the hypnotic theme has given 'Toro' new found emotional life. While still retaining the class and elegance which was so strongly conveyed in the original it closes out another defining release for Sound Avenue who continue to stretch the boundaries of their sonic canvas.
