We’re delighted to present yet another Phi Phi progressive trip, this time around we get locked on to the sounds of Hiccup which comes backed up with a fantastic remix. Phi Phi’s last outing – Alone, scored very well indeed and gained top spots on many charts. DJ-ing still plays a huge part in this guys career and you never have to wait too long until his next gig.
Hiccup intros with a tough kick that packs a nice big punch and carries a cool click on the top end. In the background a cacophony of percussions are let loose and help create a solid platform for the track. Dark, sinister vocals ring out and lead us up to the first short break before the track gets into full on mode with a strong probing offset bass line. That bass line really gets the groove into full swing alongside those expertly crafted drum patterns. The main break throws up a rich string that contrasts beautifully with the sinister vocal sound. A proper progressive monster that will definitely hit any floor hard.
Rise And Fall aka Russian based DJ and producer Anton Vishniakov turn up for remix duties and once again we are treated to some first class sounds from this guy. So far, along with his other persona Templ8, he has currently released tracks on labels like Bonzai Progressive, Monster Deep, Flux Delux (Recover), Clear Water Music, Pitch Music, Alien Technology, Aoses Recordings, Alien Technology Recordings, Green Martian and the mighty JOOF Recordings. Specialising in deep and techy high quality sound along with energetic and atmospheric grooves there can be no doubt that Anton will continue to garner huge support for a long time to come. This remix certainly gears towards his more energetic side with a driving bass line that forces your feet to move. A solid construction filled with punchy kicks and a tight drum section is the perfect fodder for the floors. On top of the bass we get a nice round of synths and FX that light up the groove beautifully. A simply stunning slice of progressive grooves you simply must have.
