Russian producer and sound designer Alex Ledov debuts on Progrez with Wonderland which takes us on a fantastic journey through various stages of house music all wrapped up in three top notch tracks.
Wonderland opens with some cool drums and percussions that form up a nice flowing rhythm. A strong kickdrum comes through and is joined by an array of fantastic synths alongside a gritty bassline that drives the groove brilliantly. This one grabs a hold of you and keeps you locked on for the duration with its tech fuelled beats and top notch synths and melodies. A floor stomper for sure.
Svati intros with a cool kick drum and a subtle percussion bringing up the rear. The kickdrum gets a huge punch added and bursts into the track closely followed by a superb deep, rolling bassline. We are treated to a fine display of synths that weave through the track effortlessly with their pitching notes and striking chords. The track breaks early to reveal a smooth melodic sequence before slamming back into full on mode. A wonderfully crafted slice of progressive house for the floors here, not to be missed.
Sunset starts out with a muted kick and a stuttering percussion alongside cool one shot sounds that add texture to the track. A big focus lies on the percussions here with subtle melodies floating in the background. The breakdown enters us into a surreal world filled with deep sounds and a melancholic flavour which is only broken by a pounding kickdrum and those superb percussions alongside a meandering bassline that sits perfectly on the low end. Excellent stuff that will be a welcome addition in any set.
