The latest release on Luis Bondio’s Classound Recordings welcomes Dmitry Molosh to the label for his debut single.
The Belarus based artist is coming off the best year of his career in 2015, one which saw his releases earn play from both Hernan Cattaneo and Guy J. 2016 promises to be even brighter with forthcoming material signed to Cid Inc’s Replug Records and Guy Mantzur’s Plattenbank. His debut single for Classound is entitled ‘Blizzard’ and also includes remixes from Silinder and Luis Bondio.
For those following the new school progressive movement Dmitry Molosh is likely at the of your favourite artists list. His inimitable style and pristine production qualities have made him one of the more in demand remixers in the underground in fact. With ‘Blizzard’ we see Dmitry crafting another immaculate track full of incredible groove and atmosphere. Anchored by big bulging bass stabs it certainly sets a large presence at the outset. Always a great melodic craftsman, Dmitry again focuses on subtle motifs to create a very engaging and deeply emotional narrative throughout the track. It would have been easy to go big with this one and there are hints of that during the main break but Dmitry keeps things cool and classy and the production is all the better for it. An awesome track to kick off 2016 for the Belarus based producer.
The first interpretation of ‘Blizzard’ is provided by Silinder who is making his third appearance on Classound Recordings. The Irish producer continued to be at the top of his game in 2015. With perhaps a slightly lighter release schedule than years previous Silinder turned in standout productions for Dopamine Music, Soundteller Records, Click Records and many more top underground imprints. His progressive minded productions always have a great nose for the dance floor and his interpretation of ‘Blizzard’ is no different. Coming in even meaner and more sinister than Dmitry’s original it sits nicely alongside it as a great complement. A fuller bottom end generates amazing drive and the emotive subtleties are highlighted nicely, particularly half way through the first act (following an electric beginning) and also during the main break, which through a variety of smooth transitions proves to be the highlight of the track for me. Wonderful remix from Silinder.
The second and final interpretation of ‘Blizzard’ is provided by Luis Bondio who is making his 11th appearance on Classound Recordings. The Argentinean producer and Classound boss also had an amazing 2015 with remixes for Derek Howell (Balkan Connection) and Kobana (Proton Music) being just two of many highlights. Luis is pretty diverse in his production approach, he seems equally adept at crafting darker more moody pieces as he is melodic and emotive. On his ‘Blizzard’ interpretation he takes Dmitry’s darker undertones and twists them into a deep, brooding beast of a remix. The descending bass tones are incredibly catchy and the dramatic tension during the break plays out in several phases, which makes for an exhilarating ride and wicked drop. Definitely one for the darker floors and a great one to kick the year off for Luis. Superb stuff from Classound Recordings once again. Highly Recommended.
