Matan’s newest release Dangerous Change features the vocal talents of Mykle Anthony and comes backed up with two stunning remixes. His last outing Just Let Go featured heavily on download portals and playlists alike and no doubt we are in for a real treat with this latest offering.
The Original Mix gets us going in a full on progressive flow as the intro eases in with cool kicks and sweeping pads. The kicks gets buffed up with a punch and is joined by a deep bubbling bass giving a dancey vibe to the sound. The vocals begin to filter through with little one shots that set the scene for Mykle to showcase his wonderful talent. Deep and thoughtful lyrics are the perfect companion to this sound and are further enhanced with a brilliant melodic sequence on the break. Floorfilling stuff yet again from Matan and not to be missed.
Nico Parisi gives us his Deep Sofa Remix and delivers an absolute stunner. Nico has recently released a few gems that have gotten huge support from many quarters and currently has plenty more in the works. He is a constant presence at big events around Belgium and will feature on Bonzai’s stage at Tomorrowland 2014. The remix intros with a nice chunky kick and a round of soulful vocal shots that set the pace brilliantly. The bass sits back while packing a punch alongside some cool synths and a gritty riff that sweeps by. The track mesmerizes as it takes us to the break where the vocal comes to the fore and the synths become more prominent before settling back into this deep and lush progressive groove. Great stuff.
Davide Catania turns up at the remix desk with his pumping take on the original. We last saw Davide on his Desert Sky release on Green Martian and more recently on AnLight’s track No Advance. Here Davide raises the bar as he gets right into a full on progressive stomper. Phat kicks and cool percussions are laden with subtle downward arps as a swirling synth pad fades through with the amazing vocal on top. The bassline soon takes control as it powers through the sound beautifully giving off that strong prog vibe we love. The vocals are just stunning and blend seamlessly alongside the piano riffs. The break offers up a cool sax riff that really sets the track off and works so well with the piano and vocal. One to watch here and will no doubt be the choice of many.

Matan Caspi delivers his stunning ‘Just Let Go’ which is backed up with three superb remixes from Audio Noir, Mindgamers and deepAlexander. Matin’s last outing was at the start of 2014 with the wonderful ‘I Wanna’ which saw a lot of support from all over.
First up we have the Original Mix which intros with super crispy hats that gets right up in your face as a nice chunky kick leads into a deep lush bass that comes through to balance things out beautifully. Cool vocal samples dash in and out of the sound adding a nice flow to the vibe. On the break a smooth synth arrangement takes over adding a hint of melody that gives off a contrasting groove, top notch from Matin yet again.
Tallinn based DJing and production duo Mindgamers are first up on remix duty. The guys have been enjoying a lot of attention for their works as their own productions as well as remixes are being picked up all over the world and featuring heavily in many sets and radioshows. Here the guys do what they do best, rock the joint! Right from the off the grooves are infectious, thumpy kicks and a sharp hi hat sequence are the perfect combination. The vocal samples off the original are used well and that bass just teases and teases. Stabby synths bring in a cool vibe and on the break we see these take full control before slamming right back into the main track to continue on this epic progressive house ride!
Audio Noir is up next and yet again he does not disappoint. His remix, Another Audio Noir Trip, is quite simply stunning. He has a way of taking a track and transforming it into something fresh and different while keeping true to the original. Nice whispered vocal on the intro which leads into a cool kick and a sublime percussion arrangement with some fantastic vocal samples over the top. The groove builds and builds before exploding into an analog fuelled, bass driven monster. Quite an energetic vibe off this as the layers build around the track culminating with a superb vibrant synth. Brilliant stuff out of Australia and not to be missed!
deepAlexander aka Sasa Skrobar rounds up the remixes with his stunning take. Sasa’s last release ‘Midnight Launch’ was well received and is a testament to the skills on offer. Big chunky kicks get us going with expertly tweaked vocal samples and fading synths sitting in the background. A cool rhythmic groove is built with the introduction of some great percussion patterns. The track takes a funky turn as a deep throbbing bass is brought forward together with a catchy, soulful vocal. The track is totally driven by that classy bass which has so much character as it binds the track together beautifully. Top stuff and a track you will want in your collection!

The ever popular Matan Caspi serves us up another tasty progressive treat in the shape of his latest works ‘I Wanna’. His last outing ‘Muddy Waters’ gained much support and is testament to the talent on offer from this guy. This release comes with two top notch remixes from top notch producers.
The Original Mix sets off with a percussion led intro with a snippet of funky keys peeking through. The kicks fill out the track nicely and a deep resonating bass gets the groove flowing. Nice and steady house vibes with a cool vocal coming in adding to the funky nature within the sound. The break reveals much more on the vocal front with the funk levels rising ten-fold through some very cool keys and pads, superb stuff from Matan and not to be missed!
Slovenian DJ and producer Matevz Crocy aka Crocy knows no bounds when it come to top quality productions and remixes as he always delivers the goods, and then some. His last release ‘Rotten Hour’ is currently doing the rounds and getting much attention. On the remix here Crocy beefs up the sound with chunky kicks and a wonderful deep infectious bass that forces those hips to sway. Super tight percussions provide a solid rhythm as the occasional synth makes an appearance. Aside from that bass the next big focus here is the use of the vocals, they are used perfectly and really set the track off brilliantly, cracking stuff and a must for those groovy late night parties.
Next up we have Daddy aka Koen Mertens on the remix. Koen has blasted out some great work in his time, but recently he has ramped things up a gear. In the last few months he has knocked out some fine original work alongside top quality remixes. Most notably his tracks ‘Hidden Mojo’ and ‘Accelerator’ saw big support across the board and we hope there is more to come from this guy. The remix intros with a cool kick and hat combo, a vocal sample fades through before a the bass ploughs in. The bass is a big focus here as more vocals play along into the groove. Some awesome acid type sequences show up on the break giving a new dimension to the track. Superb stuff from Koen!!
