Chris Harris makes a welcome return with fantastic driving progressive grooves of Feels Real? His full debut back in the summer of this year, What’s Left Of Them, turned a few heads with support coming in from all angles. Coming backed up with a brilliant remix you can expect to be blown away with this track.
The Original Mix gets us on the move with its punchy kicks and rolling bassline setting the groove firmly into the progressive realm. Cool percussions layer up bringing a steady rhythmic vibe while sweeping synths take us on a surreal, twisting journey. The track settles beautifully into its groove as the myriad of sounds paint a colourful picture filled with elements of psy and trance. The break reveals an absolute gem of a vocal sample that sits so perfectly into the sound with its melancholic undertones. Superb sweeping arps cascade through the sound before we get thrust right back into the main track. A stunning slice of deep hypnotizing progressive house that will no doubt find itself crossing over into many sets.
Manu Riga is up on remix duty with his Tribal Remix and yet again he hits it right out of the park. Currently he is working on lots of new material with a slightly different direction in mind which we are very excited about. His newest track No Time Left is a collab with DJ Fire and continues to garner much support, keep an eye out for more from this guy and you will not be disappointed. On the remix he digs deep and delivers a superb progressive cut. The intro gets right into it with a nice snappy kick and shuffling percussions that get the rhythm flowing. A very sinister bassline sits in the wings waiting to pounce as it bubbles up with a raw energetic power. The vocal sample used is just the perfect accompaniment to the sound and continues throughout the track in all the right places. Cool arps litter the groove while on the break a much more melodic flow comes through alongside that vocal which takes us back into full on mode. Deep, tribal, full on grooves that will be a big feature in any set.
