Magitman & Tash / Kosmas Epsilon & Dio S. – Volt Afterhours / Tsegene Machala (Movement Recordings)

The 66th release on Movement Recordings sees two tracks from the labels back catalog getting new updates for 2013. Kosmas Epsilon’s ‘Tsegene Machala’ collaboration with fellow Greek producer Dio S was released in March of 2012 and here sees two new interpretations from Cesar Lombardi and Kintar. While Magitman’s ‘Volt Afterhours’ collaboration with Movement label boss Tash was released in August of 2011 and here gets reworked by Michael & Levan and Stiven Rivic and SEQU3L.

Kintar’s mix of “Tsegene Machala’ gets the release underway with an incredibly groovy framework that’s accented with some lovely deep tones. A cool vocal stab adds some vibrancy along with some unique instrumentation which keeps the senses heightened as the track continues to build. The soulful sounds are the perfect complement to the Peace Division style groove which comes thundering back in  after a musically rich breakdown that should have your dance floor completely captivated.

Argentina’s Cesar Lombardi is next and his remix here marks his sixth overall appearance on Movement. Cesar has been coming up fast with not only his solo productions but collaborations with fellow countryman Luis Bondio. For his ‘Tsegene Machala’ interpretation Cesar has crafted a wonderfully deep and sinister sounding rework that’s perfectly suited for late night action. Cesar’s put a marvellous new school progressive house spin on the superb elements from the original.  The powerful bass tones lead way along with wobbly rhythms, soft stabs and a grinding undertone which is going to go down huge on the floor. The relentless energy and rolling grooves carry the track through a haunting climax which Hernan Cattaneo fans should absolutely love.

The trio behind the famous Mistique Music imprint Michael, Levan and Stiven Rivic provide the first remix of Magitman & Tash’s ‘Volt Afterhours’.  The funky, club friendly vibe on the original is well maintained by Michael, Levan and Stiven Rivic and they’ve managed to add an extra element of beauty as well. As the rolling groove drives towards the main break gorgeous sequences of sparkling keys are introduced which add an amazing effervescent quality to the mix which is sure to translate well on the dance floor. The build out of the main drop is epic; it’s like a growing rush of controlled and impassioned energy which peaks with the warm groove and soft electronics delivering an amazing big room moment following the drop.

The second and final interpretation of ‘Volt Afterhours’ comes from SEQU3L who is making his first appearance on Movement here. The Indian producer just made an appearance on Freegrant Music’s ‘New School Vol. 3’ and has gotten his production career off to a great start. SEQU3L has delivered a monster interpretation of ‘Volt Afterhours’ with a monumentally beefed up bass line, driving rhythms and a dynamic breakdown which focuses on those amazingly catchy rhythmic hooks from the original. When the intense build concludes and the meaty groove returns expect a  huge reaction from your dance floor! Release Promo Hype Chart Top 25
