We had seen the first edition of Till It Begins EP last year which featured some great original productions of Latvian talent, Subconscious Tales. This year it’s time for part 2, marking remixes from some of the most talented artists such as Ewan Rill, LoQuai, Soulfinder & Tuxedo.
First we have Russian talent Ewan Rill bringing us his version of Become Aware. Built on slow grooves leading into a melodic bassline, the track carries an old skool house vibe with bass twangs and stabs. Perfectly arranged sounds with rapid riffs & claps progressing into a dancy breakdown with the impeccable synths which is the core of the track adding some dramatic mood before exploding with a powerful groove polished to perfection.
Next we have Germany based talent LoQuai doing what he does best, giving the original version Humble a complete twist with dark soundscapes. Slow buildup, followed by hard beats along the hypnotic bassline swirling up and down is enough to keep your head spinning. The track carries an addictive groove to it, along with some atmospheric pads in the background. A late night dancefloor hypnosis.
That’s right, Soulfinder approaches the original version of the track Aura in his own style. Moody, rhythmic synths and a striking warm bass, which keeps growing as the track progresses. The breakdown carries a nice drive with layered filters & slow tempo variations peaking up and then breaking back into the groove. Nice smooth transitions keeping the swing to it.
Talented polish producer Tuxedo bringing us his version of Till it Begins. Swelling bassline with hard beats & kicks injects the track with techy grooves making your ear buzz. The chord progressions along the filter effects in the buildup with futuristic stabs enhances the track with fresh sounding synths, bringing an energetic vibe to the tune.
Overall great work by all the artists. The 4 tracks on the release are equally good & each one will give something different. Recommended!
