MATAN CASPI – CELEBRIUM (RISE AND FALL REMIX) CHARTED BY BEATPORT

Rise and Fall is up next on the remix and once more we are blown away by the talent on offer from this guy. He has given us some fine progressive cuts over the years and he never fails to deliver. His last outing Open System proved popular among many which is a testament to his contribution to the scene. The remix intros with a cool muted kick and a great warping bass alongside an array of surreal FX and sounds. A subtle melodic arp fades through and stands out in contrast to the deeper sounds around. The drums layer up nicely with a cool rhythmic vibe that will transform easily to the floors. A solid progressive groove ensues with sweeping synths and risers taking us to the break where we enter a deeper abyss before getting thrust back into the main groove for the duration. Another fine example from Rise and Fall, not to be missed.

LONG GARDEN AVENUE – LOVELIGHT EP FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Long Garden Avenue is the brainchild of Adriaan Baussens aka Belgian musician, composer, DJ and producer Manu Riga. LGA first came into existence back in 2005 when Adriaan was transitioning between house and progressive. His intention was and still is, to keep his music open to movement between genres and LGA is his vehicle into a more deep house sound. This full release debut entitled Lovelight EP is a collaboration between Adriaan, his good friend Matt Holliday and the stunning vocalist Sam Zeito. This one is a change of direction for Matt as he normally resides over epic progressive cuts, much like Manu. His last outing for Bonzai Progressive – Pipe Dream – proved popular among many and found its way into many sets and charts. Lots more coming from Matt, always worth keeping an eye on. Long Garden Avenue has a story to tell and you can check out our website for an in-depth write up on the man behind the music.

GAI BARONE – WHEN IN JUNE (MANU RIGA REMIX) CHARTED BY BEATPORT

Progressive guru Manu Riga steps up to the remix desk and churns out yet another top quality cut for our aural pleasure. The remix sets off with a nice chunky kick drum with cool hats on the offset and an extra cool drum pattern in the background. A fantastic pulsing bassline gives the track a nice drive that will easily get the dance floors moving. A wonderful lead synth riff delivers a nice touch to the sound and freshens up the groove beautifully. Out of nowhere a superb cascading arp fades in and out of the sound and takes us up to the break where a cacophony of strings take over. The icing on the cake though comes in the form of a stunningly rich vocal that sends shivers down your spine before we head back into the main groove. Definitely one of Manu’s best remixes here, lots going on that will bring new experiences with each listen. This one is not to be missed.
