SOHAN – ADI SHAKTI (AU RECORDS)
April 4th, 2012
And we go dark again… AU Black is proud to present Sohan’s “Adi Shakti”, a single containing the original version and two remixes, one by Zalaz and the other by Izato, Black Catalog’s Main A&R.
In the original, Sohan revives the feeling of old school tribal percussion and vocals, revealing its power after the build ups, along with the carefully chosen pad synths for the breakdowns.
Zalaz did an excellent job, making his track fluent and listener friendly by developing a brilliant sequence of delays on some percussion elements and synth sounds. This is an excellent example of underground dark music capable of pleasing a broader audience.
Izato’s approach kept the darkness and added a new school feeling to it, induced by his minimalistic yet effective percussion, beautiful distorted guitar effects and a carefully thought structure. It is a remarkable work in terms of synthesis and on how to achieve complex and nice sounding build ups thru it.
