The latest release on Superordinate Music finds the label showcasing new remixes for Jorgio Kioris’ ‘Siberia’.
Originally released in November of last year the track showcased the Greek artist and Bloque festival founder’s groovy progressive sound perfectly and also included a stellar remix from Genesis Music boss Michael A. Now as the summer is slowly winding down Superordinate presents new interpretations from Dark Soul Project, Ian Dillon and Aman Anand.
Argentinean artist Ivan Jamie aka Dark Soul Project is up first and brings his old school sound styled with a bit of a tech house sensibility this time. A club friendly framework leads things off before some angry stabs light up the atmosphere. Clustered claps add dramatic flair as alien-like vocal elements ignite a drummy build before more wonky tones enter the mix. The dark undertone gets lifted as the breakdown commences with a gorgeous pad and well crafted tones bringing emotive depth to the stark framework. It’s an interesting contrast and one that could ignite some magic in the morning hours. Great remix from Dark Soul Project.
Up next Ian Dillon makes his label debut following strong outings for PHW Elements and Pro-B-Tech Music. The UK artist also owns releases on ICONYC (formerly 238W Inc), Hydrogen and Suffused Music. For his ‘Siberia’ interpretation Ian has injected new life into the production with a chugging groove and lovely hypnotic elements. The vocal overlay is a nice touch while a catchy arp sets up the bright tones perfectly. Long sweeps make for endless waves of momentum and eventually initiate the main break. A wispy backdrop is the perfect setting for the main piano themes to steal your heart before one final rush of white noise brings the groove back for a magic moment. Big remix from Ian.
The release concludes with Aman Anand making his label debut and delivering my favourite version on the release. Splitting time between India and Singapore Aman is perhaps one of the underground’s best kept secrets. Quite a versatile artist and one that seems to be constantly evolving with each successive production. His radical rework of Blusoul’s ‘Depth Of Emotion’ was a standout on Juicebox Music’s recent ‘Untold Stories’ Vol. 2 collection and here he takes ‘Siberia’ into new out territory with great success. If you love hazy atmospheres and indistinct melodies then you’ll certainly dig this. It does carry the motifs from the original quite well but in such a subversive way that the whole piece just comes off as this effortless wave of dubby, melodic bliss. It’s brilliant and closes the release out really strong. Another great offering from Superordinate Music. Don’t miss it.
