Part of the “Run Away” EP in late 2015, “Siren” epitomised a dedication to a craft of which Dynamic Illusion has become so renowned. A gloriously up-tempo offering with its joyous melodies and driving beat, the Hungarian producer created a subtly evolving track that glittered and shimmered across a nine-minute timeframe with vocal contribution that conjured images of sun-soaked Ibiza beaches. Now “Siren” receives a full release, courtesy of a trio of new remixes.
A DJ with over a decade’s experience, performing in his Florida home, Christian Sandoval has established a considerable fan-base with his Chris Odium moniker. Blending different flavours from techno and tech house to progressive and deep house, creating a distinctive sound to call his own, Odium’s work since a debut for Nuevadeep in April 2013, has seen him go on to feature on such celebrated imprints as Pineapple Grooves, Lowbit and Beat Boutique. A regular on Suffused Music over the course of 2016 and ’17, often with the vocal contributions from Lian July, the Chris Odium remix is a deliciously deep affair with reworked synth lines and tasty deep house groove that shuffles with hi-hat precision and rich bass pattern. Combining original components with a raft of additional production material, the second half explodes into life with a symphony of melody and rhythm, after a clever ‘siren’ creates the perfect drop.
From the north of Scotland, Clyde Rouge is an artist at the coal face of his country’s underground dance scene. With DJ performances at the Inverness “Iron Works” alongside Theo Kottis is early 2018, Rouge continues to cement his reputation with a distinctive sound and style. Head of his eponymously titled Chief Rouge Records, the producer has seen success on his own label with A-list support coming from Nick Warren, Danny Tenaglia and Joris Voorn. A February 2018 debut on Pro B Tech Music with the “Black Smoke & Mirrors” EP, Clyde Rouge now debuts on Suffused Music with a tech house fuelled offering that hits hard with its sixteenth based percussive shuffle and grooved bass. Taking the vocal line so central to the original, Rouge has chopped and stuttered it into a new and vibrant direction. A raft of additional production material combines with rhythm and bass to create a hypnotic and dynamic rework.
Final contributor sees Hungarian producer, Krisztian Kajdi take up the remix reins with his Kay-D alter-ego. A classically trained musician, Kajdi has been involved in the underground scene for over a decade with some 400 hundred production credits sitting proudly next to the Kay-D name that began with a debut for CLS Music in early 2008. Finding a home on Michael & Levan and Stiven Rivic’s Mistique Music, almost a double-century of credits can be found on the imprint with several full-length albums featured en route. Additional work for the likes of Stellar Fountain, OLD SQL, and PHW Elements are a tribute to the Kay-D sound. A 2013 debut for Suffused Music saw success follow on 2015’s, “Eternal Sun”, as Kay-D now returns to the label with a beautifully constructed offering that scintillates with innovative placement and use of the vocal content found in Dynamic Illusion’s original. Centred around a strong beat and individual melodic treatment, a new motif, heavy in delay and stereo-panning, creates a new sonic architecture that builds with a new and impressive bassline into the third movement.
A trio of new remixes from Chris Odium, Clyde Rouge and Kay-D creates a new “Siren” song for Dynamic Illusion.
