Spanish DJ and producer Adrian Roman debuts on our Progrez imprint with the superb Reverse, which comes backed up with delicious remix from Phat Traktor and Bern Gomez. From a young age Adrian was interested in music, he took guitar lessons at age 8 before he started to listen to electronic music. He became interested in DJing and got hold of the tools needed to hone his skills. Production soon followed and he became fascinated with creating something from scratch. Releases on various top labels have came to fruition over the last couple of years and he is definitely making a name for himself on the circuit. Plenty more from this guy in the future so keep your eyes peeled for more.
Reverse sets out with a very cool drum and percussion arrangement that gets the rhythmic juices flowing and leads us into a deep grooving bassline that just oozes progressive tech. The bass makes a superb transformation as the filters open up unleashing a gritty sound that fades off to start all over again. Surreal swirling pads build a cool atmosphere as voices float across the sound. The track goes deeper with a little help from some awesome haunting jazzy themed sounds that construct a colourful display. The perfect late night track to keep the party groove moving.
Up on remix duty Phat Traktor & Bern Gomez join forces for a deep trek into prog that will leave your mind wide open. It’s been a while since we last saw Phat Traktor, back in December 2014 was our last taste with Cette Nuit which turned a few heads with its deep grooves. Bern marks his Progrez debut but is no stranger to the scene with releases on many top labels. The remix intros with a nice punchy kick with swirling voices going off in the background. Cool, crispy hats form up and let the rhythm loose as the layers build. The big focus goes to the leads as they deliver cool melodic phrases and licked with a strong progressive edge. The bassline meanders through the sound beautifully and packs a big punch that keeps the groove firmly rooted to the lower depths. Top notch stuff that will definitely turn a few heads.
