The Argentinean producer and Golden Wings co-owner has been quiet on the production from for quite some time. Mariano’s last release came over year ago when the excellent ‘Semper Fidelis’ was released on Luis Bondio’s Classound Recordings. Priding himself on releasing top notch material each and every time out has made Mariano’s work both incredibly exciting and highly sought after. His debut single for Golden Wings is a welcome surprise and comes with two remixes from Alessandro Diga and Yoram.

The release gets underway with the original which finds Mariano crafting a deep and enchanting progressive house track. It’s layered beats, sweeping vocal elements and meandering atmospheric backdrop immediately stands out. As the track builds momentum several melodic motifs intertwine for a for a lovely vibe, one which gets further explored during the records second act. A variety of well designed sonics and clever transitions keep the progression really fresh throughout and the record avoids that one big moment, rather opting for a series of rolling peaks and valleys to tell its story. Excellent work from Mariano.

The first interpretation of ‘Bora Bora’ is provided by Alessandro Diga who is making his first appearance on Golden Wings Music. The Dutch producer just had his ‘Minerva’ featured on Traum’s ‘Tour De Traum X’ compilation which was released just last month with resounding success. Additional outings on Aftertech, MNL and Suffused Music have made 2015 a great year for Alessandro already and he’s turned in an excellent interpretation of ‘Bora Bora’ here. The Dutch producer has given the traditional progressive original more of contemporary club revision which makes it a wonderful complement. It’s shuffling groove, momentous tones and ragged vocal gates make for a great contrast while a new found motif propels the track to a lively second half conclusion. Wonderful remix from Alessandro.

The second and final interpretation of ‘Bora Bora’ is provided by Yoram who is also making his first appearance on Golden Wings Music. Following his early beginnings on Eelke Kleijn’s ‘Outside The Box’ the Dutch producer has gone on to appear on Crossfrontier Audio, Parquet Recordings and Sound Avenue. Most recently Yoram remixed ‘Leave Me Alone’ by Amanic for Paul Hazendonk’s MNL imprint. You never know quite what to expect from the Dutch producer but you know it will be interesting and fresh which is a great way to describe his ‘Bora Bora’ interpretation. With a deeper and funkier sensibility he’s managed to convey the strong vibe from the original in a new and more refined way. The smoothness of the production and effortless flow is its strong suit and it all comes down to how well crafted all the elements are, just a pleasure to listen to and should be great on the deeper floor as well. It rounds out an excellent release on Golden Wings Music in fine style. Don`t miss it.
