It’s with great pleasure we present you the next ESR release, a really strong original with 3 massive remixes included also. This time we are apply to present you the rare talent behind the alias of Napalm.

With a calm relaxed progressive production, filled with smooth kicks, deep pads and swirrling bass chords, this laid back melody bound production is nothing less than pure progressive love that we are thrilled to see out on Elliptical Sun Recordings.

On remix duty you will face a great line-up, with the always creative Andrew Phillipov first up with one of his classic progrssive breaks interpretations. As alwyas he shows the importance of being creative with percussion, build massive melodic hooks and introduce a groovy bass line, we love it.

Next out is a great clubby production from one of the rising stars on the progressive scene, Russian producer Javanny. He gives the track a whole other dimension here, including more uplifting layering of sounds, to give the release one more direction. Big sidechained pads, smooth melodies and an overall lovely texture.

Last out is a clever take from Slovakian producer Domased Electronica. He brings a more mysterious production to us here, including a rich mixture in sound design. Be ready for deep twists and turns, including cool pads, groovy percussions and smooth melodic hooks.

Ilya Deep & Jacco@Work – My Little Girl [LuPS Records] – Review

It is time for the first collab track between Ilya Deep and Jacco@Work. You can easliy hear who produced what in this track. Ilya took care of the atmospheric melodylines and Jacco took care for the beats and bassline and additonal fx’s. All together this leads to a unique blend of styles. Their team up turned out into a moody, melancholic but yet atmospheric prog house track with Tech House beats and crispy percussion.

The first remix comes from Fake Truth. His remix is not so average. It takes off with an eerie synthline and a lazy broken beat structure filled up with a deep slappy bassstab and swirlling bubbling sound fx’s. As the track moves forward the beats are turning into a more  4 to the floor structure to turn back again halfway the track into a breakbeatstructure during the breakdown of the track. At the end things are becoming more Tech Prog with a pounding dark groove. As said not an average track but surely a great chill out tune which adds some magic to the dancefloor as the end of the track brings back the full energy.

The second remix comes from Fiddler. He is rapidly making name and fame in the today scene with his more old school bassed prog house sound. This remix is no exception to that style. It kicks of with a bombastic groove with a wide soundscape filled up with some steady percussionlines. On top he placed the arpped synthlines and moody melodylines of the original to create an orchestral sound. This is a great after hour chill out track.

The last remix comes from Domased Electronica. After his very well received The Magic Of Candles release he now brings a huge remix of My Little Girl. It is admireable how Ladislav is capeable to keep up with the pace of delivering quality tunes. From the first note till the end his remix is breathing. A superb groove with a dark organstab as earcatcher combined with a bold deep warmbassline lies underneath a magical musical carpet of melodylines and ambient sounds. This remix goes deep and explores each corner of your human being. Surely when the very well found sample of a laughing young girl hits your speakers and Ladislav introduces a soulpiercing new fluteline which causes the goosebumps all over your body. This is true prog from the heart and a timeless masterpiece. Save the best for last so to speak!!!

Domased Electronica – The Magic Of Candles [LuPS Records] – Review

The 159th release on LuPS brings an Original from Slovakia based producer Ladislav Zajic aka Domased Electronica. With a string of releases on labels like Mistique, Morphosis and Mestiza it is now time for a rocksolid track on LuPS called The Magic Of Candles. The Original version is a dreamy and fragile track with lots of warmth and depth. Ladislav blended together lots of soundlayers and created and enchanting atmosphere with a stunning and dazzling breakdown section which sounds like a fairytale adventure.

The first remixes comes from no-one less then Matias Chilano. His remix is simply amazing and contains a great bassline and crispy percussion which gives the track a great drive and flow. Furthermore to round it all up Matias added a couple of new very catchy synthstabs and voxsamples to create a perfect soothing atmosphere. Once again Matias proves why his name is still rising.

The second remix comes from Bulgarian producer Alessandro. After his very well received Utopia EP on LuPS he now shows up with a stomping remix. He took one of the main catchy synthstabs of the Original version and builded a rocking and steamy groove around it with surely rocks the floor. Also Alessandro added some vox snippets to his remix which gives the whole track a more ethnic flavour. This remix is a peaktime hour bomb track with a rather energetic groove.

Last remix comes from Jacco@Work. His remix kicks of with a rather organic beatloop and a deep bassstab. After 30 seconds a driving percussionloop drops in and together with a bumpy bassline the road has been cleared for a pretty dancefloor friendly warming up tune. Also Jacco@Work added some extra fx’s in the breakdown section like eerie violins, deep resonating space sounds, talking people and a breakbeatloop which turns the track into an bum shaking track after the breakdown.

Domased Electronica – Venus and Mars EP [Mistique Music] – Review

Domased Electronica made a much anticipated return to electronic music in February with his first production in over two years entitled ‘Temple Of Art’. The project was released by Michael & Levan and Stiven Rivic’s Mistique Music imprint and has been one of the labels biggest releases this year. Domased then went on to appear on LuPS and Mistique with 2 remixes and this week sees his second single of the year once again coming courtesy of Mistique Music. Domased Electronica’s newest studio creation is entitled ‘Venus and Mars’ and it comes with remixes from: Adam-P, Franzis-D and Monojoke.

The ‘Venus and Mars’ original is one of Domased Electronica’s purest progressive house records to date. The warm, surging bass tones and perfectly contoured synth stabs work together for the ultimate driving groove while the ever so subtle atmosphere escalates towards the main break. Here a celestial glow comes over the track with haunting pads, melancholic bells and smooth chord changes which create a soundscape that is deeply emotional and a bit eerie. The beauty of the drop is how unique all the emotional elements sound together and how well they continue to play off each other as the groove returns for a heartfelt finish. it’s a fabulous composition from Domased Electronica which we rank as one of his coolest to date.

The first remix comes from Adam-P who is returning to Mistique for his third overall appearance and second remix following reworking Kay-D’s ‘Eastern Symptom’ in November of 2012. Adam’s deeper and more atmospheric sound proves to be a great complement to Domased’s bigger more driving original. Hovering atmospheres, subtle vocal elements and celestial electronics combine with Adam’s deep but still very floor friendly groove for what results in an ideal warm-up record.

The next remix comes from Spanish producer Franzis-D who has just come off a wicked remix for Deepsessions of Igor Zaharov & Sober System’s ‘Thin Line’. Franzis is known for his tough, techy sound so it makes perfect sense to get a remix from him here as he can likely deliver an excellent alternative to the more progressive and deeper mixes previous to it. Franzis’ strong percussive sound works in perfect contrast to the celestial atmospherics here and although deeper than what we’re used to from Franzis it still packs some serious punch for the dance floor.

Closing the package out is Monojoke who is making his 5th appearance on Mistique. The Russian producer has been making some noise of late with his new Telekollekiv alias and he provides a wicked prog house interpretation here. Filled with big warm beats, rumbling bass tones, a wealth of sonic sounding electronics and a melancholic breakdown for the ages this easily ranks up there with Monojoke’s best work ever. One of the most haunting progressive house tracks we’ve heard this year and it puts a perfect cap on another great package from Mistique.

AudioStorm – Hard Way EP [LuPS Records] – Review

AudioStorm returns to LuPS for the 150th release. Once again Ognjen Vukovic aka AudioStorm shows his talented in creating atmospheric but yet driving tracks. 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. Hard Way is another great track which shows that AudioStorm is a name to keep an eye on.

First remix comes from Domased Electronica aka Ladislav Zajic. It is his debut track on LuPS and how. Domased Electronica delivers 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.

The second remix comes from T-Dallas. Hailing from Greece Thanos Dallas hands over another storming remix of Hard Way. 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.

The last remix comes from Viktor K. Viktor delivers a more classic prog house remix with a deep growling bassline which he combined with fragile pads and melodylines. The whole arrangement has been topped of with long reverbed stabs and bubbling arps and additional percussion elements.

Tolga Diler – I Hear You Calling EP [Mistique Music] – Review

The 332nd release on Michael & Levan and Stiven Rivic’s Mistique Music sees Tolga Diler returning to the label for his sixth appearance. Tolga is one of Turkey’s most well known progressive house producers; he first came to our attention with his releases on Deepsessions, Underground City Music and Vise Versa Music in early 2011. More recently Tolga has had great productions on Mistique, OLD SQL and Green Snake. Tolga’s newest single for Mistique is entitled ‘I Hear You Calling’ and it comes with remixes from: Domased Electronica, Timewave and Wav-E.

Tolga’s original mix begins with a floor friendly groove that comes with a nice shuffle and lovely hypnotic accents. Effects heavy vocal trails soon enter the mix and paint a lovely angelic vibe over the powerful groove. The vocal progressively becomes more audible and a drop dead gorgeous melodic lead begins to take shape as well. Sections of perfectly clustered keys make up the melodic centre piece along with some anthemic chords which we could see providing some goose bump moments on the dance floor. The vocal elements here are really incredible; just silky smooth and oozing with quality combine that with the bang on the money melodic themes and you’ve got what is easily Tolga’s finest work to date.

The first remix is supplied by Domased Electronica who just made a spectacular return to the scene last week after a more than two year absence. His ‘Temple of Art’ single was released on Mistique and will likely go down as one of the biggest releases on the label this year. The Slovakian producer has provided an excellent interpretation of ‘I Hear You Calling’ that complements the original version really well. Domased has crafted a much techier framework for the mix which comes with an electric bass line that provides a wickedly pulsating groove. The drums add a cool hypnotic element which play perfectly off the bass line to lock the groove down just that much more. The vocal elements have also been used to great effect as they create an amazing sense of space between the pumping groove and soaring atmospherics. This is very reminiscent of something Digweed would have played many years ago so it’s certainly something you should have in your collection.

The next remix comes from Timewave who makes his first appearance on MIstique for 2013 and 29th overall. The Finnish producer closed out 2012 on a very strong run with releases on Armada and Joof; he continues to build on his tough, techy progressive trance sound and has become a favourite amongst DJs like John 00 Fleming and Airwave. For his ‘I Hear You Calling’ remix Timewave has stuck his guns and delivered those rock solid beats and crystalline melodies that we love. The crunchy rhythms and razor sharp synth lines rip through the air with such force that it’s sure to cause chaos on the trancier dance floors out there and the soft melodic lines and smooth chord changes following the epic drop put the perfect cap on another Timewave masterpiece.

The final remix on the package comes from Wav-E who is making his 19th appearance on Mistique. The Macedonian producer who is now based in Austria closed the year out with productions on OLD SQL, Elliptical Sun and L*C*D* Recordings. Wav-E has long been known for his emotional piano melodies and his broad productions style which over the years has incorporated House, Chill Out, New Age, Trance, Techno, Breakbeat, D&B and even some Rock stuff. Wav-E’s ‘I Hear You Calling’ interpretation comes with a big, spacious progressive bass line, lovely vocal gates, euphoric melodies and a wicked breakbeat section to close the record off which is actually quite unique. The production on Wav-E’s music is also top notch, a really crunchy, processed sound that works quite well for this style. Great from mix from him and another very good package from Mistique.

Domased Electronica – Temple Of Art EP [Mistique Music] – Review

Domased Electronica - Temple Of Art The 330th release on Mistique Music is out this week and it features a return for one of the labels original artists. Domased Electronica was one of Mistique’s most loved producers in the labels early days. From April of 2009 to October of 2010 the Slovakian producer appeared on Mistique 19 times but then suddenly vanished from the scene. Fans have sorely missed his tough, melodic progressive sound and now after more than two years he is back with a new single entitled ‘Temple Of Art’ which comes with a massive selection of remixes from: Michael & Levan and Stiven Rivic, Noa Romana & Deersky, Loquai, Jose Tabarez and Marc Pollen.

Domased’s original mix begins with an up tempo groove that surrounded with some lovely soft bass tones and wispy electronic accents. As the drum elements slowly get added in the anticipation grows until the first short drop reveals an electric bass line with a killer roll which pushes the energy higher. The rolling hypnotic rhythms bring the track to the main breakdown which goes through a variety of musical marvels, from the glassy coated bells and processed pianos to the break beat section that’s laced with trailing vocal pads and rising atmospherics. When full groove returns the soaring melodies and celestial backdrop rise high for some real emotional escalation which should prove deadly on the more intelligent trance dance floors out there. A fabulous return for Domased Electronica and we can’t wait to hear more from him.

Domased Electronica’s return just wouldn’t feel right with a remix from Mistique Music label bosses Michael & Levan and Stiven Rivic. The Mistique bosses are quite varied in their productions, we’ve seen them go deeper and more hypnotic like their work on Movement and Mesmeric or they can go big, rocking, festival style prog house and trance like we see quite a bit on their own imprint. Well their ‘Temple Of Art’ remix is certainly the latter; a big colossal progressive anthem that we could certainly see rocking a festival crowd as the sun is coming up. The galloping underbelly of beats and bass tones is as up tempo and energetic as you can get. The vocal wails and hook heavy arps keep things rocking through the first half as the track approaches the main drop. Here the indomitable trio have really crafted a breakdown for the ages; built around an incredible build and elevating tension that eventually peaks with the soaring atmospheres, heavenly vocal pads and monster groove all meeting for a sensational climax. More great stuff from Michael, Levan and Stiven Rivic.

The second remix comes from one of our favourite production duos Noa Romana & Deersky. The duo came on to the scene in 2011 with releases on Underground City Music, Deepsessions and Mistique. Noa and Deersky had an even bigger 2012 with their ‘Metamorphosis’ track launching Sound Avenue’s new Crossfade Sounds imprint and further releases on Mistique and Electronic Tree. We love their spaced out progressive sound and it’s worked wonders on Domased Electronica’s ‘Temple Of Art’. A well textured kick along with an underlying trail of spacey atmospheric tones lays down the foundation early on. The melodic elements from the original have been used beautifully by Noa and Deersky. They’ve really teased them into the production through the first half until the main drop where the celestial vocal wail and delicate melodies are allowed to shine just a bit more. The rough kick and undulating groove soon reappear though and you begin to drift further into the cosmos so to speak as the subtle but enchanted elements continue to work their magic though to a smooth finish.

Long standing Mistique artist Loquai is up next and this marks his 66th appearance on Michael & Levan and Stiven Rivic’s imprint. Konstantin Alt aka Loquai has just come off a wickedly deep interpretation of Steve McGrath and Chris Sterio’s ‘Chasing Dopamine’ which was released just a week ago on Mistique. Konstantin has also just appeared on legendary trance label Bonzai with his ‘Flying Fortress’ production in conjunction with Dutch producer Shimmer. For his ‘Temple of Art’ interpretation Loquai has crafted something that sits nicely between the big colossal remix from Michael, Levan and Stiven Rivic and the deep, spaciness of Noa Romana & Deersky’s. Like all Loquai productions this one comes with an incredibly groovy bass line which powers the track and is sure to make it a real dance floor mover. The dancing melodic elements that flow through the piece are incredibly hypnotic and set against a backdrop of washed out atmospheres and subtle noise they sound just that much more fabulous. Superb stuff from Loquai.

The next remix comes from Jose Tabarez who is returning to Mistique for his 6th overall appearance on the label. Hungarian producer Zsolt Beregszaszi aka ‘Jose Tabarez’ last appeared on Mistique in October of 2012 with his excellent remix of MSZ’s ‘Toronto Despair’. Since then Jose has also appeared twice on the Insomniafm family of labels with a remix and also a single entitled ‘Blandina’. Jose has gone deep for his ‘Temple Of Art’ remix and it proves to be an excellent complement to the other versions here. The production is set with a spacious bass line that really lets all the other elements breathe quite well. Jose’s soft stabs, clattering drums and subtle sonic accents carry the groove quite well and if you’re looking for another emotionally satisfying breakdown well Jose has crafted a perfect one here as well. A good one for the deeper progressive dance floors out there.

The final remix on the pack comes from Marc Pollen who is making his first appearance on Mistique here. Marc hails from the Netherlands and his unique brand of tough melodic techno has earned him a good fan base and aside from his many productions on Balkan Connection he has also appeared on Baroque and famed US house label Siesta. Marc’s ‘Temple of Art’ remix really stands out here as well, the production on it is nice and warm with a really clean sound. The drums in particular are just bursting with life and the spacey acid bits are dead cool. The middle section of the record is also quite unique with a clever broken beat pattern adding some serious funk to the production while the acid and vocal trails create a wonderful environment surrounding the framework. Very cool stuff from Marc. Mistique have really outdone themselves on this package, great work turned in by all the remixers and what a spectacular return for Domased Electronica who hits us with one of his best records to date.

Review of Quintax – Perspectus EP

Quintax is a side project of the much loved Styller aka Branislav Klinko who hails from Slovakia.

https://www.beatport.com/en-US/html/c…

The first official Quintax production was the excellent remix of Michael, Levan and Stiven Rivic’s “Twilight” which was released in August. The mix was appropriately titled Quintax’s “Atmospheric Air” Remix becasue of it’s very airy and wispy sounding atmospheric elements. A truly great sound on that remix. His new single “Perspectus” for Mistique Music is of the same quality, a very tech-trance atmospheric vibe on the original, the galloping style beats really give the track alot of groove and the atmosphere has a lot of character with it’s ultra grainy feel. Absolute no cheese here at all, this is proper atmospheric, soulful trance music. You won’t here many tracks that fit this description nowadays. Well done!

The remixes are supplied by Mistique regulars Domased Electronica and Timewave. The Domased Electronica mix adds a slightly rougher and grungier edge to the bottom end and the melodic keys are a bit more prominent in this mix which does offer a nice variation on the already great Original Mix. The Timewave mix closes the package out and it’s got that signature Timewave sound that we all know and love, the squelchy, epic synth lines that give Timewaves productions so much energy are certainly there along with a big meaty bassline. Overall it has a slightly deeper vibe than some of his previous productions which is a nice change and shows some diversity. Overall this is a great package and it really is what proper trance music should sound like. If anyone remembers some of the old Planisphere productions the original mix here is of that quality.

Domased Electronica remixed Quintax – Perspectus

Quintax – Perspectus (inc. Domased Electronica, Timewave) (Mistiquemusic) [MIST079]

Release date: September 7th, 2010
Progressive/Progressive

Original Mix
Quintax’s Original version here has that classic Mistiquemusic sound. Combining the deep, atmopspheric progressive with something that’s very very trancey. A deep, dark pounding beat works exceptionally well with the lush, dreamy melodic patterns.

Domased Electronica Remix
With the deep, pounding rawness of the original, Domased Electronica must have been itching to get on remix duties for this. He did. In massive style! Giving that bassline and beat a more massive sound (if that were possible), this remix will have the dance floor shaking in no time!!

Timewave Remix
Although Timewave is one of the latest additions to the Mistique ‘Exclusive Artists’ roster, it certainly feels as though he’s been part of the label for a long time. He has captured the hearts of many progressive lovers worldwide with his deep, progressive trance blend, and with Perspectus, he delivers once again. Lightening the mood somewhat, he uses his familiar trance like sound along with some dreamy, sumptuous harmonies.

Tracks on this release:

01. Perspectus (Original mix)
02. Perspectus (Domased Electronica remix)
03. Perspectus (Timewave remix)
