Dark Soul Project and Mathov are on a bit of a roll at the moment. The guys have been churning out top quality tracks of late and this time around is no exception. Between 2 Sides comes backed up with two superb remixes as well as the original which will definitely whet the appetite for an indulging prog experience.
The Original Mix takes us into a smooth, almost laidback ride into house music with deep, flowing grooves that glide effortlessly along the sound. A deep and probing bass keeps the track on point as rich strings ebb and flow with climactic prowess right through the track. At the midway point we are treated to a very cool siren like lead that dominates with its cosmic vibe. Perfectly wrapped tune complete with a super tight arrangement that will definitely keep floors moving.
Netherlands based DJ and producer Thorin returns to remix duty with another of his sublime takes. It’s been a while since we last saw Thorin round these shores, it was back at the end of 2014 when he provided a brilliant remix on Manu Riga’s Tai Chi Girl 2014. But, he has been very busy indeed with remixes for Rick Pier O’Neill on Mistique Music and appearances on several top progressive compilations. On the remix we get treated to Thorin’s smooth vibes that take us deep into prog with an uplifting feeling that is born out of those gracious strings and pads as they cascade beautifully filled with wonderful melodies. The solid grooves are shored up by a tight drum section and smooth basses which provide the perfect platform for the brighter elements to shine. A definite must have track in your collection you will not want to miss.
Blufeld is up next with his Darkside Remix and yet again he pulls out all the stops to deliver on the quality front. Last time out we saw his track, A World Less Ordinary, gain a lot of support across the board. Currently Blufeld remains hard at work in the studio and no doubt we will be seeing a lot more in the months ahead. On the DJ front he continues with his radioshow Progmospherica which you can catch every month on Pure Fm. Here, the remix intros with a nice chunky kick that filters in to reveal crispy hats and some cool percussions that dish out a solid rhythm. A chugging, multi layered bassline drives the groove beautifully as warm strings and pads begin to rise. Sweet melodic phrases flow through the sound creating a wonderfully textured construction. On the break that bass drives on as the pads are joined by soft voices and a winding siren lead. Top notch stuff from this guy that is not to be missed.
