Agrande pres Full Gear Flavour – Man Overboard (Mistique Music)

Mistique Music has just come off one of our favourite releases of 2013, Zan Prevee’s ‘The Risk Of Dependance’ contained two stunning originals that both faired quite well in our Hype Charts and were certainly the Greek producer’s most inspiring tracks to date. This week sees Michael, Levan and Stiven Rivic’s label with a new single from German producer Agrande with his new ‘Full Gear Flavour’ project which promises to be great. ‘Man Overboard’ comes with two remixes from: Erdi Irmak and Esok.

The ‘Man Overboard’ original comes out of the gate with a tough kick, cool hypnotic sensibilities and tough percussion. Warped electronics, long builds and haunting vocal stabs add a wickedly trippy vibe which doesn’t hurt the huge club energy at all. Following a tension filled break and powerful climax the framework rumbles forward with several quick drops and dynamic transitions adding to the huge scope of the record. Great stuff from Agrande. The first remix is supplied by one of the hottest producers of the moment Erdi Irmak. The Turkish producer continues to amaze with his cool progressive tech house sound and he’s gotten 2013 off to a great start with releases on Movement, Bermudos, OLD SQL, Reelaux Digital and Vise Versa. His remix here is currently no.11 in our overall Hype Chart so you know he’s nailed it again. It’s a tough, percussive groove that Erdi has crafted here with waves of cool atmospheres and bubbly synth lines which provide the perfect hypnotic mood. Long trails of vocal pads add a haunting element which pushes the track through a powerful climax which goes down as one of Erdi’s biggest to date.

The final remix comes from Esok who is making his first appearance on Mistique after three solid outings on Ivan Nikusev’s OLD SQL Recordings. Esok has delivered a tribal infused interpretation of ‘Man Overboard’ which complements the release perfectly. Dark bass tones, sinister electronics and clattering drums all come together in perfect unison for a huge finish to the release. Another top shelf package from Mistique who are clearing trying to top their amazing run in 2012. Release Promo Hype Chart #10
