UK based Anthony Yarranton is back on the remix roster after his track “Cotton Candy” received a warm reception.

Wonderfully atmospheric pads come through on the break as the track goes deeper into the vibe, a very strong track and one that will see a lot of air time for sure.
Dutch producer Thorin enters the remix line-up with a stunning tougher edged prog rework. Thorin is a busy guy at the moment with new material his top priority which we can’t wait to see, so watch this space.

A subtle kick lingers over a tight arrangement with a powerful bassline doing most of the work. On the break surreal pads draw you in with unrelenting force. An overall quite subtle track that packs a big punch.
The Stripjacket Mix gets right into the groove with a chunky kick and brilliantly worked percussion arrangement, a simple chord stab will have you totally hooked very quickly along with another deep and powerful bassline. Cool FX work wrap this mix up beautifully and makes this a must have for those early evenings by the beach.
Manu Riga and Nico Parisi have been busy together in the studio with “Reborn” which is their first collab and comes backed up with some top end remixes. Manu Riga has an impressive list of releases, more recently with “The Darkness Within” and “Everything Comes To An End” both of which saw lots of support. and he is currently working on an artist album with some very nice surprises lined up.

The tune settles in to sweet prog vibe with a quality arp taking centre stage and a subtle bassline adding depth.

Top stuff from this duo and clearly a collab with a lot of spark!
Australian producer Audio Noir steps up to remix duties with a superb offering in his Renaissance Remix. Lots of arps form the backbone here with a filtered synth ebbing and flowing beautifully. A solid groove from the off with an almost bouncy rhythm emanating from the tight drum and perc arrangement . The track takes on a new identity at the first drop with a stunning bassline taking the main focus. Lush pads fill up the break with a surprising twist leading up to the kick back, awesome stuff!
The hugely respected Italian producer Gai Barone is up next with his Tubecore Remix. Gai has been around the scene since the hey days of Italo House and quickly became a popular name on the DJ circuit. 1995 he started to get into production music experimentation, his first release would come much later entitled “Solegirasoli” on Ultimate House Records then “Moving” on Mesmerized. Now very much in demand we can only expect bigger and better from this guy. His remix here stands up tall in the progressive world, he utilises the originals elements brilliantly. The track begins with a gritty edged kick with a cool synth hook filtering through, this builds and builds hypnotising the mind. The track takes off with a bassline that provides sheer depth of sound with some vocal samples fitting perfectly. Real progressive grooves that will be a feature for many sets.
