Amezquita – Dalumination (System Recordings)

Colombian producer Amezquita returns to System Recordings this week for his latest single entitled ‘Dalumination’.


Amezquita returns to System Recordings this week for their latest release. The Colombian producer has been a staple of the storied US imprint this year appearing three times already. His last single ‘Sunstroke’ was one of System’s strongest releases this year and included an amazing remix from Stas Drive. Amezquita’s new single is entitled ‘Dalumination’ and it comes with a remix from Mehmet Akar.

The grinding, chuggy energy of ‘Sunstroke’ was one of its many great features and ‘Dalumination’ has a similarly brilliant cadence. It’s sparkling DJ friendly intro is wonderfully layered with cool vocal samples and a bed of glimmering texture. As the piece builds a lot of gorgeous elements make their way into the mix with warm bassy swells and soulful lead lines being the highlights. The centrepiece though is a throwback breakbeat breakdown which perfectly transitions the piece to a blissful conclusion. Definitely the finest production of Amezquita’s surging career and a real standout in System’s 2014 catalog as well.

The lone interpretation of ‘Dalumination’ is provided by Mehmet Akar who is making his debut on System Recordings. The Turkish native has long been one of his country’s top producers and his appearances on Last Night On Earth, Manual Music and Sound Avenue have stood the test of time quite well. New productions from Mehmet have been few and far between recently so it’s great to see a new remix from him here and what a magical one it is. With a more contemporary club vibe Mehmet has transformed those amazing elements into a timeless beauty. The effortless, melodic quality and underlying emotion it carries just makes you want to listen to it endlessly. A fabulous production from Mehmet and hopefully we see more from him soon. Great release once again from System Recordings which goes down as one of their best this year.
