Domased 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.
