The Concept

Light | Smooth – Out Of Time

The virus lands in form of ‘Out Of Time’ by Slovenia's freshest new artist ‘Smooth’.
The contamination begins with an infectious melody; light drums clear the path as faded cries blend into an evocative vocoded vocal, as a low pass filter runs over the rolling bass lines, the cries blend into an unforgettable melody; forged in the sounds of hypnotic violins.
The virus hits the blood stream, dilating the pupils and sending the tune in to top gear.
The arousing rolling sub bass is released in full glory, moved along by uplifting; light hearted drums. The violin melody bounces off the cries as we progress deeper into the tune, a 16th bar shuffle discharges the vocal creating an amazing sequence of events.
An absolutely amazing and memorable piece of music.


Dark | Aqua-Tek – Stay Close

The virus has taken over, the cells have split replicating rapidly as ‘Out Of Time’ tries to hold on to it’s being, it quickly transforms into the darker side in shape of ‘Aqua-Tek’s’ pounding ‘Stay Close’.
The vocoded vocals are transformed, and the former soft sub bass leaks into a swirling reese’s atmosphere. The drums now darker and harder introduce themselves as they take over the body, the inside virus is almost at full strength as the stabs of distorted bass fight their way out, like the calm before the storm, the last breath of air is exhausted in solace… the virus has taken over and drops ‘Stay Close’ into a new structure. Swirling thick reeses wrap around every cell in the neuron while heavy steppy drums lead the way forward, the chunky deep sub bass resounds through the tune as distorted bass layers smother and layer the tune keeping it exciting and interesting.
A dancefloor and Cerebral experience like no other, not to be missed.


Light | Kyrad – Hook It.

Happily unaffected by the Ruse virus, ‘Hook It’ created by Switzerland’s newest producer Kyrad kicks off with uplifting sweeps and perfectly created harmony, feed along by a number of layered hats. The drums drop inducing a cheer as it approaches the drop the harmonies build as ‘Hook It’ drops for the first time. A surprisingly heavy section of steppy drums kick in, yet uniquely hold a light uplifting liquid flavor to the tune, beautifully placed samples fill the verse and smooth sub bass adds the drive. As the tune progresses the first sign of infection shows as complementing neuro reese’s are minimally applied to perfect effect while additional strings come into play giving ‘Hook It’ it’s wonderful hook.
A great tune for the liquid heads but easily fitted into any set build up.


Dark | Subterra & Dekko – Eclipse

It’s become apparent the subject is infected, ‘Subterra & Dekko’s’ ‘Eclipse’ awakes with eerie atmospheres, not present before it’s slumber.
Retaining the steppy sequence of ‘Hook It’ the darkness of the drums has increased immensely and the uplifting melodies have been drained. As the pads sweep and ponder how to bypass the final wall for total infection a kick silences everything as a techie bass stab destroys the final hurdle. ‘Eclipse’ smashes down with an incredible wall of sound, completely destroying all sense of the Nervous system and any club system. The powerful drums, while minimal in structure; surrounded by deep heavy bass, create a huge sound, the mind has lost control. Subtle reese’s and wooden hits progress the tune helping to ensure you never get tired of hearing it, but for now all is lost the virus is in control.
An absolute club smasher, for those who like it minimal but heavy this is your Adrina Lima.
