In its 112th release, Suffused Music heralds the return of the "World's Most Dangerous DJ", a.k.a. Alfonso Muchacho, for the unveiling of Neptune Skies Part 2. Released in March of 2015, the original EP remains at the top of Suffused Music's popular releases. This time around, a monster line up of remixing artists put their own spin on the tracks, sampling a cornucopia of genres from melodic progressive to tech house.
Opening up with the first of the 4 remixes, label newcomer Maxi Iborquiza delivers in a big way with his rendition of "Change Everything". Staying true to the original bass sequence, Maxi seamlessly melds a gloriously retro sounding lower end with a fluttered-beat kick drum, propping up a beautifully rendered melody of dreamy keys and snappy percussion.
Artist and producer Andrez returns to Suffused Music with a driving tech house rework, putting the haunted back in "Haunted Heart" with his signature high octane floor pounding rhythms. This remix features pulsing bass stabs offsetting a perfectly balanced, yet somehow delicate sounding hats and claps that only Andrez could pull of in style, giving the infamous Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde a run for his money.
Remixing the title track, Suffused Music's veteran Dofamine drops a superb deep house bass under miles of atmosphere drawing the listener into a stellar break where glittering worlds of vaguely stringed synthesizers can be glimpsed among luminous, enveloping pads before continuing on through the night riding on a hypnotic beat intermittently accentuated with vocal hits.
Closing out the release, Anton MAKe gives takes the only best from "Nothing Out Here" and gives it all back to the listener in a melodic progressive journey not soon forgotten. Using Anton's notorious pad work as a back drop, the infectious bass line stands front and center surrounded by a full supporting cast of brass, keyed and hammered synths for a truly enjoyable tunes that is a sure to played time and time again.
great package, dofamine for me
