Fresh off the back of remix duties for Bob The Groove’s My First Day Beyond The Sky, Night Shift Master aka Vlad Medvedev returns with the acid laden Code Red which is backed up with a superb remix by Manu Riga. Israeli DJ and producer Vlad started to study in a music school when he was 6 years old. After completing his studies at the music school (focusing on Violin and Piano), he graduated from the music academy of his home town, when he was 16. While getting his B.A degree in audio technology and sound engineering, he produced music in the styles of Deep House, Tech House, Progressive House, Progressive Trance. Vlad has been also composing music for movies, commercials, performs as a DJ and participates in many other music projects. During his DJ sets, Vlad incorporates performance that are special and unique.
The Original Mix throws up a seriously deep, provoking cut that carries a powerful, driving groove at its heart. Tight beats and rhythmic percussions keep the flow going as a deep, probing offset bass mesmerizes. Dark vocals take control as short melodic flutter sweep through before a short break reveals the true nature of the track. A dark and moody 303 style sequence ramps up the energy as gnarly synths deliver gravelly riffs. A real monster of a tune that will not disappoint.
The multi-talented, prolific Belgian artist Manu Riga aka Adriaan Baussens is back on remix duties and, once again he does not disappoint. With countless remixes and original works for us over the years, Manu Riga remains a consistent powerhouse of progressive beats. Recently he took to refining his sound into a much deeper, club orientated streak, with great results. His last outing, Oscuridad, gained great support as did his last remix for Russlan Jaafreh Pomegranate. He teamed up with Rick Pier O’Neil to run the exciting new label Vesta Records and his monthly podcast, Escape on Progressive.Beats radio draws a large listening audience. A busy man indeed, no doubt we’ll be seeing more in the future. Here Adriaan takes the original and works it into a wonderful deep progressive mover. Chunky beats and a powerful rumbling, watery bassline dominate as sweet melodic pads fill out the background alongside very subtle, distant vocals that get the goosebumps rising. An awesome modulated synth sequence cascades through the sound, hypnotizing the mind and forcing you to the floors. An absolute belter of a track that is not to be missed.
