The 133rd release on Clinique Recordings finds Julian Rodriguez collaborating with White Resonance for a brand new single.
Hailing from Argentina and Mexico respectively Julian and White have worked together in the past with spectacular results. The duos ‘Noctura’ was released on PHW Elements earlier this year to rave reviews and their latest entitled ‘Remember That Night’ looks to be even better.
The duos last collaboration, the aforementioned ‘Noctura’ was a journey into deep and enchanting progressive grooves. The mystical presence that one carried is evident here once again. Light airy pads and tough beats lead the way early before a variety of shifts, drops and ideas begin to work their magic. Dynamic drum fills, delicate motifs and vocally pads carry the track through its first act. A short break teases a bigger more gorgeous lead before coming to full realization during a euphoric conclusion. Wonderful melodic work from Julian and White Resonance.
The first interpretation of ‘Remember That Night’ is provided by GMJ who is making his third appearance on Clinique Recordings. The Australian producer has been hotly tipped this year with a long line of impressive productions. GMJ has a sound all his own and he’s found a way to keep intelligent progressive music alive and well. Always a consummate remixer the Aussie has once again worked his magic on ‘Remember That Night’. Beginning with wonderfully layered beats and dubby rhythms you’re immediately sucked into its smooth textures. Dark stabs and spaced out designs set the stage for a shimmering overlay which carries the track into a gorgeous break. Long grinding swells build sizeable tension before unleashing a gorgeous motif of keys which lifts the track to a classy and slightly emotional conclusion. Great remix from GMJ.
The second and final interpretation of ‘Remember That Night’ is provided by Subandrio who is making his first appearance on Clinique Recordings. Now residing back home in Sri Lanka (formerly Dubai) Subandrio caught the attention of the entire underground when his 3 track ‘Fractured Moment’ EP was released on Cid Inc’s Replug Records earlier this year. Other 2015 highlights include being selected as one of the winner’s in the Cid Inc. vs. Darin Epsilon remix competition along with a long line of excellent productions for Balkan Connection, Baroque Records and Seven Spirits Records. For his ‘Remember That Night’ interpretation Subandrio has brought his deep, chuggy sound and delivered another excellent production. There’s a dreamy coat on this one but that doesn’t take away from its large presence and keen nose for the dance floor. The drive and energy are just right with a smooth momentous swing which builds that hypnotic groove perfectly. The exhilarating rush out of the main break may be the highpoint with an abundance of warm, soothing lines and wonderful textures to get lost in. You tend to expect something big from Subandrio and he’s brought that again but with some ethereal magic on top. Another gorgeous remix from from a producer who continues to deliver excellent work with each successive outing. It rounds out one of the best ever releases on Clinique Recordings in fine style. Don’t miss it.
