Ezequiel Anile & Nicolas Petracca return to Deersky’s Soundteller Records this week for the labels 44th overall release.
The Argentinean duo last appeared on Soundteller with their ‘The Last Chance’ EP which was released in August. It’s already been a great year for Ezequiel and Nicolas and with an outstanding EP forthcoming on Nikko.Z’s Dopamine Music they are certainly closing it out on a strong note. Their latest single for Soundteller Records is entitled ‘Unity Is Strength’ and it comes with remixes form Billy Alex, Marcelo Paladini and Simos Tagias.
Ezequiel Anile & Nicolas Petracca have built a nice reputation for crafting complex melodic records and ‘Unity Is Strength’ certainly furthers that sentiment. It’s swirling harmonic structures and chugging progressive groove are a match made in heaven. The subtle vocal gates meld effortlessly in the tracks celestial backdrop and the breakdown of cascading melodies is positively breathtaking. Ezequiel and Nicolas are rising in the melodic ranks pretty quickly and this is one of their best yet. Don’t miss it.
The first remix is supplied by Billy Alex who is returning to Soundteller for his second appearance. The Greek producer delivered his ‘Expensive Suit’ single for the label earlier this year and has since appeared on Abstract Space Recordings and LuPS Records. For his ‘Unity Is Strength’ interpretation Billy has gone a touch deeper and it’s really paid off. The harmonic tones while downplayed seem almost stronger here over top of such a laid back groove. There’s a delicate beauty happening here that you rarely here nowadays and it proves to be a great alternative to the original. Lovely work from Billy.
The second interpretation is provided by Marcelo Paladini who is making his sixth appearance on Soundteller Records. The Argentinean producer has released some amazing music this year with his work for Agara, Balkan Connection and Clinique Recordings really standing out. For his ‘Unity Is Strength’ interpretation Marcelo has delivered what is surely one of his career best productions. The Argentinean’s now trademark tight grooves provide some nice punch and the shifty melodic hooks seem to dance perfectly over the top. The heavenly conclusion features a nice complement of vocal samples along with those smooth celestial refrains which sound absolutely fabulous here. Already favoured by Darin Epsilon and many other DJs this looks to be one of Marcelo’s most sought after remixes of the year.
The third and final remix on the release comes from Simos Tagias who is making his third appearance on Soundteller Records. The Greek producer has been one of this year’s unsung heroes. He’s grown immensely since his first release on Lynx Records back in 2012. 2014 has seen Simos finely tune his productions and the electronic music underground has been taking notice. With outstanding original work for Soundteller Records and Never Too Late along with remixes on 3rd Avenue and Stellar Fountain Simos is definitely a producer on rise. For his ‘Unity Is Strength’ interpretation Simos has shown why he’s one of the most unique remixers around. Backed by a funky groove and strong rhythmic elements this is likely the most dance floor worthy cut on the release. The reinvention of the vocal elements and subtle use of the melodic components have resulted in a great complement to the original. Great remix from Simos which closes out one of Soundteller’s best releases of the year. Don’t miss it.
