Eyes Wide Shut settles into a solid progressive vibe from the get go with a subtle rolling bassline, chunky kicks and a cool bending synth. A strikingly sharp siren rises and takes us into full on mode as the drums and percussions deliver a smooth rhythmic flow. Some fantastic sounds come through and bring an 80’s vibe alongside a superb contemporary melodic arp that rises and falls beautifully through the track.

Futurity sets off with a filtered kick which joined by a slicing hat that and some cool vocal sounds that pop up along the way. The kicks get a massive thump added as the track lifts off with its infectious groove. The rolling bass line becomes a main focus in the sound while a cool house atmosphere builds up in the background. Expertly tweaked filters keep the track bouncing along nicely as those one shot vocals add that urban vibe. Superb stuff that will be a welcome addition in your box.
