Luis Bondio & Mariano Favre – The Magic Ride Of Mr. Roscor (Movement Recordings)

The 81st release on Tash’s Movement Recordings sees a huge collaboration from two of Argentina’s most loved producers. Luis Bondio and Mariano Favre have been influential figures not only in Argentina’s much hyped progressive house underground but also on the global scene as well. The result of their first studio collaboration is entitled ‘The Magic Ride Of Mr.Roscor’ and it comes with remixes from Khen and Rogier & Stage Van H.

With Luis and Mariano collectively appearing on such great imprints as: Hope, Outside The Box, Renaissance and Perspectives you would expect something sensational from this duos fist studio collaboration and ‘The Magic Ride Of Mr.Roscor’ is exactly that. The groovy framework and enchanting synths sound absolutely divine as the piece begins to build. Layers of bubbly textures and dynamic top end stabs add a classically restrained epic vibe as the main break draws near. The short drop serves as the ideal transition into a stripped down middle section which allows the bubbly textures to breathe and build some nice tension for a strong second half finish.

The first remix is provided by Khen who is returning to Movement for his second appearance. The Israeli producer has been red hot on the production front this year. ‘Moments Becoming Endless Time’ in conjunction with Guy Mantzur was just recently released on Hernan Cattaneo’s Sudbeat label and has been heralded by many as one of the year’s biggest records. Khen’s ‘The Magic Ride Of Mr.Roscor’ interpretation proves to be a great complement to Luis and Mariano’s bigger more progressive oriented original. With a much funkier foundation and smooth soulful sound Khen has turned in the ideal deep companion to the original.

The final remix on the release comes from Movement label regulars Rogier and Stage Van H. The Greek duo have written several originals and also remixes for Movement Recordings in the past and they’ve delivered a great remix of ‘The Magic Ride Of Mr.Roscor’. Buzzing bass lines, delicate atmospheres and a building energy highlight the first half. The break strips things right down and provides a slice of atmospheric brilliance. The gently wavering tones and haunting vocal elements delight the senses before the sizable groove returns for an exhilarating conclusion.
