The original mix finds Nicolas crafting a timeless, cross genre production that's nicely dialed for the dance floor. Beginning with punchy kicks and a growling synth, the track has an immediate presence, before dulcet chord stabs and vibrant percussion brighten up the framework. As it ebbs and flows through short breaks and clever transitions the musical narrative continues to shift, gently pulling at your emotions before a groovy finale.
The first interpretation of 'Vision' is provided by Matias Chilano who is making his third appearance on the label. The Argentinean artist made his Dopamine debut in 2015 with a remix of 'New Intention' by Alberto Blanco and Marcelo Paladini. 2016 found Matias back on the Greek imprint with a remix of 'Solis' by Robert R. Hardy. Also owning releases on Juicebox Music, Movement Recordings and Sound Avenue, Matias now makes his way back to Dopamine with a stellar remix of 'Vision'. Opting for a trippier, more atmospheric approach this sits as a wonderful complement to the original. Cascading motifs, clustered effects and detailed percussion wrap around the tight rhythmic core before a well crafted break takes you further into dreamland.
Next up is Paul Deep who is making his Dopamine Music debut following releases on Clubsonica Records and PHW Elements. Coming straight from the heart of Argentina the Hernan Cattaneo favourite puts a pure progressive spin on 'Vision'. Backed by a rolling groove it's seamless flow is filled with subtle shades and tones. As the second act commences the atmospheric narrative rises with haunting wails and swirling noise, ultimately leading to a heavenly finale.
Another Argentinean artist who has been making major strides in the progressive underground is Lucas Rossi. Following releases on Balkan Connection and Nick Warren's The Soundgarden Lucas makes his Dopamine Music debut with an amazing interpretation of 'Vision'. On a backbone of rippling bass comes waves of percussion and rhythmic pulses. Undeniably organic, it's effortless flow is infectious as haunting voices and shimmering melodies encase the framework. The main break presents the biggest moment on the release with flurries of drums and electronics building with each passing loop, before eventually dropping out as the groove thunders for a spectacular finish. Perhaps the finest remix of Lucas' career and the perfect way to round out an excellent release on Nikko.Z's Dopamine Music. Don't miss it.
