Constan – Sunshine (Clinique Recordings)

The 32nd release on Clinique Recordings is out this week and it features the return of Constan to the label. The Mexican producer made his Clinique debut just last week with a remix of 3sidesquare’s ‘Derinkuyu’. His first single for the label is entitled ‘Sunshine’ and it comes with remixes from: Diogo Ribeiro and Pavel Skinner.

Constan’s original productions for Bermudos and Soulfire earlier this year spent some time in our Hype Chart and also on our office playlist. He’s got a cool hypnotic sound with quite a bit of character as well. ‘Sunshine’ is one of his strongest most mature sounding works to date in our opinion. The deep, swirling atmospheric vibe is tailor made for the dance floor and once the rhythmic keys set in during second half the record gains a new harmonic perspective that glows with a wonderful effervescent quality. Brilliant stuff form Constan.

The first remix on the release is provided by Diogo Ribeiro who is making his first appearance on Clinique. The Portuguese producer dropped his ‘No Contact’ EP on Flow back in June to resounding success and here he’s provided a wicked interpretation of ‘Sunshine’. In putting a more tech house spin on things Diogo has crafted a great complement to the original. The heavy percussive vibe gives it a great dance floor presence and it still retains some of the amazing atmosphere from Constan’s dreamy original. Great stuff from Diogo.

The final remix on the package comes from Pavel Skinner who is making his first appearance on Clinique as well. The Russian producer first came to our attention late last year with his ‘Submerse’ single on Stellar Fountain and he’s closed the release out with a really cool remix of ‘Sunshine’. Pavel has added his own emotional touch to the remix that is really wonderful. Warm, angelic sounding pads and soft bass swells combined with a gorgeous harmonic complement for what results in a real melodic gem. Outstanding work form Pavel and a top notch release form Clinique!
