Magshine – Cosmic Matrix (Intemporal Music)

Magshine - Cosmic Matrix

Intemporal Music presents a brand new single from Magshine for their second release of 2015.

Magshine - Cosmic Matrix

As one half of the famed Magnetic Brothers duo Anton Golubev aka Magshine has been experimenting with his solo alias for just about two years now. After debuting the new project on Whose Haus in April, 2012 Anton has added releases on Balkan Connection, Particles, Soundteller Records and his own Deep Blue Eyes imprint. His debut single for Intemporal is entitled ‘Cosmic Matrix’ and it includes remixes from: Stas Drive and Simos Tagias.

Much like Magentic Brothers the Magshine sound has always stretched across genres quite well. ‘Cosmic Matrix’ finds Anton with one of the deepest creations of his career. Getting underway with a drummy, low slung groove the track moves with a swing heavy drive and growing atmospheric presence. The main break showcases a cluster of keys which makes up a very elegant lead motif. Shifting chord changes and a long tasteful build then sets up a powerful re-entry and pushes the track to an even groovier conclusion. Awesome stuff from Magshine.

The first interpretation of ‘Cosmic Matrix’ is provided by Stas Drive who is making his first appearance on Intemporal Music. The Ukrainian producer was much talked about towards the end of 2013 where he was widely regarded for his unique and club friendly grooves. Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren and Guy J became some of his biggest supporters as a result. 2014 saw Stas appear on both Sudbeat Music and Hope Recordings with a release on Lost & Found still building anticipation in the pipeline. The Stas Drive sound seems to be continually evolving and his interpretation of ‘Cosmic Matrix’ showcases a deep, techno inspired remodel of the track. The cleverly reshaped bass line carries a wonderful groove and funky roll while the spacious drum elements give the track an open air vibe. The main break utilizes the lead themes from the original in a much more esoteric manner and the end result is a very rewarding message and great complement to the original. Lovely work from Stas Drive.

The second and final interpretation of ‘Cosmic Matrix’ is provided by Simos Tagias who is also making his first appearance on Intemporal. The Greek producer rose to new heights in 2014. His unique blend of tech house inspired grooves and progressive flavoured melodies were a deadly combination and one that very few dance floors could resist. Gig wise 2014 was also filled with great moments for Simos, opening for Guy J in November and appearing at the Bloque Festival earlier in year were just two of the highlights. He’s also got 2015 off to a great start with a two track EP on Nikko.Z’s Dopamine Music, a release which many consider to be the best of his career. For his ‘Cosmic Matrix’ interpretation Simos has crafted another contemporary progressive gem which utilizes the vocal and rhythmic elements to great effect. The Greek producer’s club designs are unmistakeable and his fluid lines along with a new vision of the lead theme are sure to be magic on the dance floor. Brilliant stuff from Simos and another top shelf offering from Intemporal Music.
