Dark RamaraDomased Electronica – Dark Ramara [D9R059| Droid9 Recordings]

(Release date: December 31st, 2019)

1. Dark Ramara (Original Mix)
2. Dark Ramara (Dub Mix)

 

Droid9 caps off a successful year by welcoming Domased Electronica to the label with ‘Dark Ramara’. The Slovakian artist has been part of the progressive house underground for over a decade. A long standing relationship with Michael & Levan and Stiven Rivic’s Mistique Music has been fruitful, yielding a total of 30 releases. Also finding a regular home on LuPS Records, the Bratislava resident now lands on Droid9 with a new single to cap off 2019.

Loved for his mystical sounding creations, Domased Electronica delivers a groovy, cross cultural gem with ‘Dark Ramara’. It’s bouncy, percussive groove is tough yet fluid, serving as the perfect foundation for a soulful lead motif. Sparsely placed across the first act it sets a meditative mood before the framework eventually strips down into the break. Here a vocal narrative takes centre stage, youthful and positive, it glows sitting atop exotic drums and hopeful instrumentation, before smoothly seguing into an even groovier final act. For the less vocally included there is also a dub included which rounds out the release quite nicely. It makes for a powerful Droid9 debut for Domased Electronica and concludes a great year for the label who continue to be one of the most reliable progressive house imprints of the moment. Highly recommended.

Immersion (mixed by CJ ART) including Drunk Dragons – 17th Bus Traffic (Domased Electronica Remix)

CMDR001_200rWith almost a double century of production credits to his name dating back to 2006, Polish artist and DJ, CJ Art, has established himself as consistent force in a turbulent electronic music scene. His work signed to such luminary imprints as Mistique Music, JOOF and Suffused Music, the self-proclaimed producer and sound designer has released a steady stream of music that has evolved in impressive style.

Now taking his talents to the embryonic Cloudy Moon Records with its focus on “deep, dark, old school prog and psy sounds”, “Immersion” provides 160 minutes of music spread across two developing aural palettes and over thirty high-calibre tracks.

Part I sees deep, rich progressive sounds blended with consummate ease as the skill of emerging talents and established starts combine. A European renaissance sees Italian, Danny Lloyd, nestle exquisitely alongside Ireland’s Lateral Cut Groove while Serbia’s Progress Inn and Greece’s Simos Tagias continue the grand tour. Opening proceedings himself, CJ Art continues to make regular appearances throughout the first half in a journey full of melody and deep pounding rhythms.

Part II brings to the fore a clutch of deep percussive grooves as legends from Belgium and Israel feature – Faskil and MOSHIC remixing Kaan Koray and Anton MAke respectively. Suffused Music’s regulars Dr. Avalance and Advent’s Rising ply their impressive skill sets to great aplomb and CJ Art punctuates a hypnotic groove-laden 80 minutes with a series of remixes that have helped carve out a still growing reputation.

Diving head first into a sea of musical tranquillity, CJ Art’s total “Immersion” in the music that defines him has created sonic ripples that truly represent the deep, progressive sound.

AudioStorm – The Collection album on LuPS Records – incl. Hardway (Domased Electronica Remix) – Review

LUPSRECALBUM002_200rAs his interest in electronic music crew, AudioStorm started to write his own tracks which are supported by many of his childhood heroes. He now has releases on multiple labels like Particles, System and Baroque, Balkan Connection, Mystique Music and many others. He also has a diverse range of releases from Progressive House and Techno to Chill-Out and Indie Dance. This clearly indicates a talented producer who does not let genre boundaries cloud his musical vision!

Two years ago AudioStorm aka Ognjen Vukovic joined LuPS Records with his track Amazon Clouds. A ambient and atmospheric track. Ever since AudioStorm released three other originals and a couple of remixes on the label. Now two years later, the idea came up to make a compilation of Ogjnen’s work and the best remixes and release it as an album. As bonus Ognjen submitted a brand new track called Addition Energy.
AudioStorm – Amazon Clouds (Original Mix)
A firm kickdrum, well programmed percussion and a deep warm bassline forms a perfect background for a floating, dreamy track with all sorts of eerie soundscapes, swelling synthlines, vocalsnippets, swirling arps and spacey fx’s.

AudioStorm – Hard Way (Original Mix)
Hard Way is a perfect example of how versatile progressive music can be. AudioStorm managed to blend together a few styles in this track. A chugging techno groove in the background with on top long layers of mellow progsounds and a handfull of old school synthstabs, arps and fx’s.

AudioStorm – Alexander the Great (Original Mix)
Alexander the Great is a gorgeous deep moody quality prog house track. The original oozes depth and is causing a relaxed atmosphere. Long layers of sound, eerie pads, growling sawlines and crispy percussion are doing the rest.

AudioStorm – Fly With Me (Original Mix)
Fly With Me is a melodic Deep House track with a summerish fresh uplifting feel. The track contains a rather cool morphed trumpet sound which pops up every now and then. Besides Ogjnen created a real floating atmopshere with well programmed percussionlines and fragile tiny melodylines.

AudioStorm – Additional Energy (Original Mix)
This is the brand new unreleased track on this album. Additional Energy is a more Techno based track with a old school bassstab and crispy rolling percussion. All sorts of raw edge sounds are popping up during the track. The contrast with the eerie moody pads makes this track really interesting.

AudioStorm – Amazon Clouds (Vlada D’ Shake Remix)
Vladimir took a totaly different route for his remix. His remix contains a laidback deep soothing groove with a rather relaxing bassline and crispy fx’s. The Vlada D’Shake remix proves that the good old prog sound is still alive in all it’s facets.

AudioStorm – Hard Way (Domased Electronica Remix)
For Domased Electronic this remix was his debut on LuPS and how? Ladislav delivered an impressive masterpiece with a huge swinging groove which has been stuffed up with lots of danceable percussion lines and elements. Ladislav also inserted a few new syntstabs which are really catchy. The breakdown section is just amazing and a true dancefloor filler. You simply can’t go wrong when dropping this remix and it still sounds massive!

AudioStorm – Hard Way (T-Dallas Remix)
Hailing from Greece Thanos Dallas handed over another storming remix of Hard Way at the time. His remix contains a majestic prog house groove with that typical Greek emotional feeling and atmosphere. However this remix goes way deeper then the one from Domased Electronica. Besides that it just sneaks under your skin to stay there for quite some time.

AudioStorm – Alex ander the Great (JJ Grant Remix)
Also for JJ Grant this remix was his debut on the label. He delivers a true type chugging prog remix with a devastating bassline and a tremendous flow and feel. This remix goes even deeper then the original and is causing goosebumps on your skin and shivers down your spin. This is a straight from the heart Prog remix at it’s best.
AudioStorm – Fly With Me (Tropical Hibernation Mix)

The first remix or better rework comes from Ognjen himself. His Tropical Hibernation Mix is a downtempo chill out tune which is perfect for a sunset on the beach. The start is perfectly gorgeous and really tensed and fragile. Then when the downtempo breakbeats are coming in the whole track comes alive.
AudioStorm – Fly With Me (Jacco@Work Remix)
The second remix of fly With Me on this album comes from labelboss Jacco@Work. His reinterpretation of the original is a based upon a Tech House angle. His rmeix contains a steady and solid beatstructure with a blunted bassline and driving percussion. As the track develops Jacco adds bit by bit the original elements but in a tweaked and morphed way. This gives his remix a more raw and freaky feel.

Domased Electronica – Venus EP – Review

Another massive Mistique release is in store right now, and it comes from one of the long term servers on the label, Slovakian producer Ladislav Zajic aka Domased Electronica. Being a steady producer on the label, he now returns with another fabulous production called “Venus”.

With crisp melodies and superb pads working the full track, this is just another statement about what this producer is all about. It’s a pure mint production with all the right elements that we expect from a production carrying the Domased Electronica alias.

On remix duty you will have 2 incredibly talented names back on the Mistique roster and first out is the Manchester (UK) bound John Ov3rblast who brings on his deep vibes once more on the label. The other remix in this package comes from the rising talent from Argentina, Mindshield who bring on his full artillery of deep and driving kick drums, smooth pads and overall evolving sound design.

Another masterpiece is out from the Mistique factory!

Parga and Jeremias Ferreyra – Signs Of The Stars EP – Review

Another superb release is out on Clinique Recordings, this time through a collaboration between Parga & Jeremias Ferreyra called “Signs Of The Stars”.

With deep kicks, dark bass chords and melodies in progression all the time, you are to get a superb production to fill your club floors and sets with, it’s quality stuff coming up!

On remix duty you are to face new work from 2 great names in the business, and first out is another extremely good remix from Slovakian ace, Ladislav Zajic aka Domased Electronica.

He brings a deeper touch to the original ideas, where he is putting in a great effort to build something new out of them, we think he has succeeded. Be ready for deep underground elements in a blend mix with serene and clear structures that gives this production an awesome feel.

The 2nd remix comes from Green Snake Records owner, Alexey Samotarev. Under his family name, Samotarev, he brings out his music and it’s great to see him back. He brings on a deep and dirty take here, cool percussion laden structures, with a cool repetitive synth line working the track, quality production!

Parga and Jeremias Ferreyra – Signs Of The Stars EP – Review

The 46th release on Clinique Recordings sees a fresh collaboration from two of Argentina’s top up and comers. Parga and Jeremias Ferreyra have teamed up for ‘Signs Of The Stars’ which comes with remixes from Domased Electronica and Samotarev.

The Original version of ‘Signs Of The Stars’ has been in pipeline for quite some time so it’s great to see it come out on a great label with two top notch remixes. The dark and ominous beginning of the original mix is certainly a great atmosphere setter. As the track builds though there is an underlying melodic beauty that begins to develop. Smooth chord changes in the bass line along with some funky hooks and trippy vocal gates highlight the centre section before the main break. Following the wispy drop the track climaxes with all the sweeping vocal effects, smooth chord changes and spacey electronics coming together in perfect harmony. Solid original from Parga and Jeremias.

The first remix is provided by one of the progressive underground’s most legendary and long standing producers. Domased Electronica came up through the scene around the same time Michael & Levan an Stiven Rivic started their Mistique Music imprint. The Slovakian producer was one of the labels primary artists and has released a string of impressive originals and remixes over the years. His ‘Signs Of The Stars’ remix offers a more funky and spacious take on things. Charming melodies complement the rolling groove while a wide array of dynamic hits add just the right amount of vibrancy to the smooth nature of the piece. Great stuff from Domased Electronica.

Closing the package out is Green Snake headman Samotarev who is making his first appearance on Clinique here. The Russian producer has crafted a more stripped down and techno inspired interpretation of ‘Signs Of The Stars’.  The dark, ominous nature seems ideal for a cool backroom space or a real atmosphere setter in the main room. The clanky drums are quite nice here, the looser swing they add to groove really makes for an interesting listen while the top end pads balance everything out nicely. Great remix from Samotarev and a top notch release from Clinique.

Tabriz & Zuckermann – Mars One EP – Review

Tabriz & Zuckermann formation consists of two, hard working DJ’s, both hailing from Oryol City, Russia. Sparked by a mutual desire to share the most current and innovative tracks, Tabriz and Zuckerman united at the end of 2007 under the project name Deepsens. This dynamic pair brings decades of experience to the table: as promoters, they have organized events ranging from private dance parties to huge electronic music festival, and they won’t fail at producing also. Their new intergalactical journey called ‘Mars One‘ is a trippy prog hymn, with dynamic upbeat, which fits perfectly under the flag of Suffused Music. You’ll get remixes on the main theme by Domased Electronica, Dynamic Illusion, Rick Tedesco and Youngen.

Original Mix is 8 minute of pure floating, strings come and go, creating a special, endless atmosphere.

Domased Electronica carefully added more drawing to the original, a powerful baseline drifting under the complex string structure. It just sound so uplifting!

Dynamic Illusion‘s version is a bit faster than the original, but the main flow remains the same, with more dancefloor oriented approach. This one is a flashback to the progressive scene’s first determinative florescence.

Rick Tedesco brought a prog break milieu, which means a breath of fresh air, mixing the recognizable elements from the original tune.

Youngen‘s taste on the title track comes through crystal clear, Mladen’s intelligent sound based on the melodic parts, the used textures becoming a monster, traveller piece!

Drunk Dragons – 17th Bus Traffic EP [Suffused Music] – Review

Drunk Dragons aka Kostas Rulinskas makes his shiny debut on Suffused Music, which is already the 10th release of the label. Kostas has a diverse taste in music, from chill out to progressive house he collects & builds the finest elements to his productions, shake it together as one in a stylish way. With his track called 17th Bus Traffic he step into the world of slow evolving, melodic progressive house. The variations on the main theme comes from Advent’s Rising, Domased Electronica and LoQuai.

The original track operates with a dreamy string layer, spiced with a cool piano line, which add the melancholic character of the production.

Advent’s Rising stripped back the original, dropped a massive foundation under his revision with simple, but effective drum programing and a memorable, plump groove, sharpen the energy blast in the breakdown with the melody tatters.

Domased Electronica created an euphoric suit to the title track using a complex soundscape, combined the 4/4 rhythm with breakbeats.

LoQuai preferred to build a breaks version from the recognizable elements of the original track. He put a sinister feel into it, with a fat sub, make it so impressive.
