QUINCY – IN BALANCE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)
February 26th, 2014
Quincy debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic ‘In Balance’ which is backed up with two outstanding remixes.
The Original Mix intros with a classic kick and hat combination which sets the pace of the track up beautifully. The deep bass is accompanied by a cool riff that evolves as the track progresses. Cool rising pads lead into a superb break filled with melodic sequences and some nifty percussions before getting right back into the groove. Great stuff here and a definite must for the more upbeat prog sets.
Belgian duo Benoît Franquet and Cedric Piret aka Pole Folder & CP reunite to deliver a stunning remix. The guys have collaborated well in the past with releases on Bedrock Records. Individually they have reached the pinnacle of their respective careers and have gained much respect in the process. Here they work up a cool progressive vibe as the track intros with a sharp hat and a smooth arp that dominates the sound. Nice kicks fade in setting up a very cool rhythmic arrangement with the help of quality percussions. A deep resonating bass beefs up the sound and adds to the hypnotic tendencies as a result. In contrast, a sweet pluck adds a beautiful texture, superb stuff!
The legend that is Airwave is next up to remix duties with his now signature Breaks Mix. Laurent has proven time and time again this his status as legend is very well deserved given the quality of his own material and also the quality he pours into remixes like this. Very subtle intro with some FX and percussions, a rising cymbal is greeted by nice and chunky kicks in breaks style. The ever teasing synth pads weave intricate melodies that just sit back and create an air of beauty. The beats are ever evolving and in full swing they are something to behold and when the melodies burst forth you get an intense euphoric vibe which just feels right. An incredible remix and no doubt will be very well received!
