One of the most anthemic cuts off the latest Anjunadeep compilation, Jodi Wisternoff’s new offering ‘Paramour’is a stunning slice of bigroom progressive, as well as testament to his current studio mastery. String arrangements, feather-light melodies and bigroom house grooves are the order of the day, as well as a monumental breakdown that revels in its excess, before the techy aspects are brought to the fore when the drop kicks back in. Deep as the ocean, warm as sunshine and executed with flawless precision.
With a title like this you know what to expect from the off, and this certainly doesn't disappoint, with one of the most twisted vocals I’ve heard in a long time, overlaid with a spooky piano in the breakdown, which builds up with a sinister chord melody and drops with serious power and screechy distorted sounds. Keeping things very raw with bags of energy for those peak-time moments.
Some classic lush, progressive sounds here with this remix from East Cafe that just builds and builds in lush detail and melody, adding texture upon delicate texture until it peaks with a breakdown that pushes it into the realm of deep trance. Gorgeous stuff.
Brixton resident, B£AMS, drops a selection of short ideas on his '£300 STERLING' beat tape, featuring 10 super-sharp, chunky blasts of heavy set hip-hop. A quick-fire brace of mean, raw shit to bump in your cherry red Vauxhall Corsa.
