Dmitry Molosh returns to 3rd Avenue this week for his second appearance. The Belarus based producer delivered his first ever remix for the label just last week with a wicked rework of Omar El Gamal’s ‘Tweak Engine’. 3rd Avenue’s 18th release features Dmitry’s first single for the label entitled ‘Tranquility’ which comes with a remix from Max Cue.
Dmitry has certainly been a producer on the rise this year. His ‘Moonlit Night’ EP which was released in May of this year on Sleepless Nights remains ingrained in our memories and his subsequent releases on Magic Room, Stellar Fountain Deep, Lowbit and Bermudos have all been marvelous. For ‘Tranquility’ Dmitry has crafted a spacey sounding progressive beauty. Swirling synths cascade through the piece and are full of wonderful colour and texture. The subtle vocal gates and metallic sounding hits seem to be the perfect accents as well. Very classy and with a touch of vibrancy they provide a nice sparkle to the unassuming framework. Dmitry’s got to be one of the more underrated producers out there at the moment. The production and ideas here are quite solid and the track is just so smooth that it’s a pleasure to listen or dance to.
The lone remix of ‘Tranquility’ is provided by Max Cue who many melodic techno and progressive house fans may know from his releases on Paul Hazendonk’s Manual Music and MNL labels as well as Travis MacDonald’s excellent Agara Music imprint. This is Max’s debut on 3rd Avenue and he’s provided a brilliant remix of ‘Tranquility’. The additional instrumentation is what immediately stands out here. Max has added some succulent guitar elements which are absolutely divine. If you’re looking for something with soul and character in the generally uninspiring prog house landscape this has oodles of that. The break is the best part of the composition in our opinion. Those musical elements sound like the perfect setting sun; warm and full of texture and emotion. Beautiful stuff from Max and an outstanding release from 3rd Avenue.
