Andrew K’s Quadrature imprint is gaining momentum fast. The veteran Greek producer launched the label as a companion to Vise Versa in February of 2013. Eight releases in and Quadrature has already made a huge mark on the underground progressive scene with great productions coming from: Dio S., Dzim, Fiddler, Franzis-D, Loquai, Jacco@Work, Kaan Koray, Tolga Diler, Vlada D’Shake and more. This week sees the debut of the now well known Russian producer Dunkan. Arthur Dunkan has continued to push his emotional progressive sound since we first heard about him a few years ago with his releases on Round Triangle. Dunkan’s debut for Quadrature is entitled ‘Move’ and it comes with some great remixes form Napalm & d-phrag, Silicon Syndicate and Steve Lovesey.
Dunkan’s original is another one of his perfect club constructions. The anthemic melodic stabs and tightly produced groove really standout here. Simple but really effective and made for a big dance floor. The first remix comes from one of the most hotly tipped duos of the moment. We’ve been raving about Napalm & d-phrag for quite some time and the pair have been super busy in the studio recently with releases on Mistique, Mirabilis, Balkan Connection, Stereo Paradise and Reelaux Digital. Their ‘Move’ interpretation puts a unique tribal progressive spin on the track which is really fresh and creative. The melodic elements have been given completely new life as well with a subtle twist that makes the production just that much more classy. New York duo Silicon Syndicate are next and their debut production for Quadrature doesn’t disappoint either. A funky , percussive workout with nice drive and cool spacey electronics should more than satisfy the fans of this unique psy-prog duo. Closing the package out is Steve Lovesey who is also making his debut appearance on Quadrature. The UK producer has delivered a light and airy rework with a nice rolling energy and some big harmonic stabs which should get a nice reaction from the floor. All the mixes here really deliver something nice and varied. Great release from Quadrature. Highly Recommended.
