The 168th release on Suffused Music welcomes Pacco & Rudy B to the label for their debut single. The Croatian duo have enjoyed immense success over the course of their now 10 year production career. Releases on A Must Have, Proton Music and Spring Tube have all been outstanding, earning support from a wide range of top DJs including Hernan Cattaneo. Now making their much anticipated Suffused Music debut Pacco and Rudy present their new single entitled 'Krk' alongside remixes from Lian July and Yuriy From Russia.
The original version gets the release off to a strong start with tough kicks, warm atmospheres and a very funky groove. Delicate pianos and panning effects adorn the framework as the first act begins to take shape. A soulful wail transitions the piece through a short break where a bubbly line drops in to lock the groove down a notch further. The main break brings an evolution in the arp for one of many magic moments and continued progression on through to an epic finale.
The first interpretation of 'Krk' is provided by Lian July who is making her second appearance on Suffused Music. The Israeli artist first appeared on the Lithuanian imprint with her 'Illumina' EP (co-produced with Chris Odium) which was released in November of 2016. Here Lian brings her distinct vision to 'Krk' taking the track into driving, old school territory. It's galloping groove, clattering percussion and emotive chord changes are immediately infectious. An energetic first act is met with a wave of claps, initiating a timely and well constructed break. Rising atmospheres and subtle melodies converge for a magic moment before the driving groove drops back in for a smooth third act conclusion.
The second and final interpretation of 'Krk' is provided by Yuriy From Russia who is making his 14th appearance on the label. The Russian born but now USA based artist last appeared on the Lithuanian imprint with a remix of Bobby Deep's 'Space Hunter' from January of this year. Now fresh off a remix for PHW Elements Yuriy brings his revamped sounds to 'Krk'. With a tech house inspired approach the Russian artist magically weaves kaleidoscopic motifs and haunting melodies into an irresistible cosmic swirl. Burly bass stabs and plucky rhythms keep the focus nicely on the dance floor as warm tones and spacey sweeps push the piece to an exhilarating conclusion. Marvellous remix from Yuriy and another brilliant release from Suffused Music that's not to be missed.
