The 12th release on Symmetric Records welcomes Monojoke back to the label for his first single entitled ‘Love This Feeling’.
The Polish producer first appeared on the Dutch imprint in December of 2014 with a remix of Ri Za’s ‘Square’. Monojoke has always stuck to his pure progressive house roots and he’s delivered amazing work in 2015 for Clinique Recordings, Dopamine Music and Temporum Music. His much anticipated debut single for Symmetric is finally here and includes remixes from Ewan Rill, Ri Za and Dio S.
For those who follow Monojoke you’ve seen a variety of subtle shifts in style over the last few years. At times his productions carry timeless elements and he always keeps things big and bold. On ‘Love This Feeling’ we get more of that huge, drum heavy sound that many love him for. The long, heartfelt breakdown is the perfect centrepiece for the sonic assaults which flank it and it’s sure to provide many great moments on the dance floor in the coming months.
The remixes which are supplied by Ewan Rill, Ri Za and Dio S all offer something complementary as well. Russian producer and Sever Records boss Ewan Rill strips things down a touch while still retaining the toughness and also main motif from the original albeit in a subtler, more refined way. It’s a powerful version and like most of Ewan’s productions it’s got a real nose for the dance floor.
Next up Ri Za returns to Symmetric Records for his fifth appearance and tailors the framework down a touch further. With a funkier approach the groove really shines and sparser waves of drums complement it well. The main break showcases some unique vocal hooks and subtle harmonies which fuel the transition into the third act, and ultimately a great conclusion. Beautiful remix from Ri Za.
The third and final interpretation of ‘Love That Feeling’ is provided by Dio S who is making his second appearance on Symmetric Records. The Greek producer remixed RiZa’s ‘Square’ in December of 2014 for his label debut and has since appeared on PHW Elements and Soundteller Records. For his ‘Love This Feeling’ interpretation Dio has crafted the deepest and most subversive version on the release. Warm tones work in conjunction with shapely bass stabs and clattering drums for some nice rhythmic swing. A subtle acid line adds mystery and intrigue to the break before we get a glimmer of hopefully melody. This soft ambiance brings the beats back and keeps things cool and spacey during the finale. Nice remix from Dio S which rounds out a great release on Symmetric Records. Don’t miss it.
