The latest release on Superordinate Music welcomes Jorgio Kioris to the label for his debut single.
The Greek artist and Bloque Festival founder has been in the spotlight for much of 2015. His collaborations with Simos Tagias have found their way on to Replug Records and Temporum Music while his last solo offering was released courtesy of Michael A’s Genesis Music. Now we see Jorgio making his much anticipated Superordinate debut with ‘Siberia’ alongside a remix from Michael A.
Jorgio’s last solo effort, the ‘Drome’ EP for Genesis, was full of warm grooves and emotional textures. It was a stand out in the label’s catalog and he carries those same wonderful traits to ‘Siberia’. Anchored by a chugging groove; airy vocal stabs and light tonal rhythms slowly develop around the framework. As infectious acid lines begin to build the momentum charges with it, before initiating the main break. Spacious and thought provoking the interlude is laced with sparse pianos and those infectious rhythms which keep that internal groove locked before the beats return for a wonderful moment. Massive work from Jorgio.
The lone interpretation of ‘Siberia’ is provided by Michael A who is making his second appearance on Superordinate Music. The Belarus based producer and Genesis Music label boss is perhaps just off the biggest release of his career. After appearing in a Guy J and Guy Mantzur back to back Ibiza set, the track ‘Education’ became an underground hit and was quickly signed by Sound Avenue for an immediate release. The new school progressive bomb surely sits as one of Michael’s best and is still in the Beatport Progressive House chart at the time of this writing. Here he returns to Superordinate where he released his ‘Distance’ EP in October. For his ‘Siberia’ interpretation Michael has added some nice space to the groove resulting in a very dynamic bottom end. The great rhythmic elements and smooth tonal designs of Jorgio’s original have been reinvented nicely with more of glacial haze setting them apart. The vocal elements as well have been reshaped into something that’s incredibly catchy and haunting at the same time. As the main break commences you feel the true melodic power of the piece with that distinctive motif delivering a magic moment. It’s brief and calculated however, as Michael quickly reignites the chugging groove for the ultimate finish. Wonderful remix from Michael and a stand out release from Superordinate Music once again, who are on a major roll as the year is quickly coming to an end. Highly Recommended.
