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 opens with a smooth, deep rolling bassline alongside punchy kicks and shuffling hi hats. Subtle percussion elements ease in as airy melodies float overhead along with cool FX. The track takes on a deep persona that lure the listener in with its subtle allure. As the layers build, more striking melodic patterns appear that dissipate on the break where we’re taken deeper still before climaxing with a beautifully crafted sequence. An excellent production that will not disappoint.
Nico Parisi is up on remix duties, delivering another superb slice of progressive goodness. Nico is a name synonymous with quality electronic music. For many years he’s been at the forefront of dance music as both a DJ and producer. It all started with a DJ gig at the infamous Atmoz club, from there he enjoyed success playing at Belgium’s top venues as well as travelling the world. He has also brought his skills to many festivals including Bonzai Retro, Legacy Festival, Tomorrowland, Pukkelpop and a host of other notable events. His foray into the production world started with a demo he sent to Antler Subway which was met with success when he saw his tracks championed across the world by the likes of Tiesto, Oakenfold, Cox, Van Buuren and many more. After a period of time with EMI he signed an exclusive contract with the legendary Bonzai Progressive (Bonzai Records) where his brand of smooth, deep, progressive vibes would shine. Nico now boasts a hugely impressive catalogue of original works and remixes. Here, Nico opts for the hypnotic approach as he takes us deep into progressive house. A tight drum arrangement leads the way as mesmerizing plucks converge to create a complex web of subtle melodies. An intense, rich pad resides in the background, keeping us locked on while the break focuses in on those delicate melodics. A real nice builder that grows with intensity, perfect for the late-night sessions.
