Michael A. – Subbermud (Genesis Music)

The latest release on Genesis Music finds label boss Michael A back in the spotlight with a new single.

Michael A - Subbermud

The Belarus based producer and his young imprint have been hotly tipped this year following a string of Guy J and Hernan Cattaneo supported releases. The future certainly looks bright for Michael and his new single ‘Subbermud’ promises to be one of his best yet.

It’s been noted that Michael’s productions have gotten more musical this year and ‘Subbermud’ continues that trend. There’s a level of subtlety in terms of melody which Michael seems to nail on each production and he’s done it again here. Aside from another strong progressive minded groove and lovely complement of bouncy drums, the musical components creep up on you in a very intriguing manner here. Hooky rhythms and vocally stabs complement the esoteric sounding harmonies as the track reaches the main break. An atmospheric haze sets the stage before a calculated build ends with a rush of drums and heightened melodies which propels the track to an amazing finish. More excellent music from Michael A.

The lone interpretation of ‘Subbermud’ is provided by Nicolas Petracca who is making his first appearance on Genesis Music. The Argentinean producer has a busy week with another remix due out on Clinique’s 3xA Music imprint. Nicolas’ dreamy sounds seem like a great fit here and the end result is a deep and wondrous interpretation that really hits the spot. Like most Petracca productions it’s rumbling foundation carries a big presence but it’s the swirling, indistinct motifs which are so strong. The main break in particular unleashes some gorgeous designs which also play a big part in the wondrously spaced out conclusion. Strong stuff from Nicolas and another on the money release from Michael A and Genesis Music.
