Fede Key and Matteo Gargallo debut on Green Martian with the sublime Tesis which features a solid remix from Croatian outfit Cortex Thrill. Fede and Matteo got together in 2016 and they’ve created a special sound in the studio which will definitely get noticed. Federico Signori aka Fede Key got into the clubbing world working as a PR in 2000 at Alterego Club in Verona. In 2007 he started as a DJ playing a range of sounds from the most polished Deep House, to Tech House and Techno music. He has graced the decks with a plethora of top notch jocks over the years and has played at top clubs around Europe. In 2016 he started to produce his own music and already he boasts an impressive back catalogue. Matteo has been a DJ for many years and has also played at many top clubs alongside top jocks over the years. He is a relative newcomer to producing with his first release being a collab alongside Fede on Insist Music. A dynamic partnership with lots to offer, we look forward to more from this duo, but for now enjoy their foray into the progressive world.
Tesis is a solid progressive mover with a superb structure that will definitely get things moving on the floors. Right from the intro we find ourselves locked in to the groove thanks to tight drums and a fantastic groovy bassline and synth combi. The bassline dances effortlessly through the track while those playful synths add cool flavours. Robotic voices come through on the break revealing a very cool 80’s theme and this is enhanced with some melodic synths that remind us so much of the synthwave era. A wonderful addition for any set, not to be missed.
Bonzai veterans Cortex Thrill aka Croatian producers Ivo T. Montina and Sven Gleda are on hand for remix duties on this one and they do not disappoint. Considered with legendary status they were part of a burgeoning dance music scene in Europe and have released several top quality cuts on Bonzai over the years. More recently they have revamped the Cortex Thrill brand with some memorable progressive house tracks, including their latest – Utopia (Colonization) which gained a great deal of support across the board. Lots more in the pipeline from this duo, keep an eye out for their explosive live sets and new material. On the remix here Cortex Thrill do not hold back, right from the off we know they mean business thanks to an epic intro that automatically grabs your attention thanks to those super probing synth notes and that deep droning bass. A tight drum section slowly builds into a full on rhythmic fiesta that will definitely get feet to the floors. The progressive juices are in full flow here as the track tells its story with a myriad of sounds. On the break a gnarly bass drone takes over alongside some very cool sounds before we’re thrust right back into full on mode for the duration. Excellent stuff once more from this dynamic duo.
