Waves of undulating bass power the foundation while robust rhythms and tranquil arps fill in the framework. A strong percussive complement builds momentum, before perfectly segueing into a timely break. Angelic vocal pads rise to prominence, adding a cinematic flair, as a warm rush summons the beats for a massive drop.
The second selection 'Marken' showcases a deeper side of Juan's studio repertoire.
