The latest release on Madloch’s Sound Avenue imprint finds the label showcasing two brand new interpretations of Nevee’s ‘So Intentional’.
Originally released in July of 2014 the Belgian imprint’s 39th offering remains one of the labels best selling releases. It paired the haunting vocals of the Canadian artist with the cutting edge design of Brazilian producer Andre Sobota. The results were sensational and made for a release which earned praise industry wide. Now for the labels 52nd release Sound Avenue has called upon label artists Future Motions and Eyal Cohen to breathe new life into the track for 2015.
The first interpretation of ‘So Intentional’ is provided by Future Motions who is making his second appearance on Sound Avenue. UK based Phil Joannides aka Future Motions first appeared on the Belgian imprint with his ‘The Way You Look’ single released in July of 2013. It remains a standout entry in UK producer’s discography and one which the label has revisited on a number of occasions. Future Motions is an artist that has never succumbed to the volume based production approach that so many producers have today. It’s a trait that has kept his work fresh and his fan base hungry. Future Motions’ interpretation of ‘So Intentional’ is his first production in over 18 months and he’s turned in something exceptional once again. A driving groove combined with stark electronics and shifty rhythms makes for an exhilarating first act. A brief but haunting break accented with Nevee’s vocals sets up an enormous second half. Fueled by electric bass stabs, trippy vocal gates and a barrage of effects it’s a monstrous finish, and one which your dance floor will certainly remember long after the night is over.
The second and final interpretation of ‘So Intentional’ is provided by Eyal Cohen who is returning to Sound Avenue for his second appearance. The Israeli producer remixed Daraspa’s ‘Rendro’ for the label in April of last year and has since appeared on Dopamine Music and Motek Music. Eyal’s tripped out contemporary club sound has melded well with the ‘So Intentional’ themes and resulted in the finest work of his career. Backed by a dark and chunky foundation the track builds mightily with sonic motifs, deconstructed vocals and psychedelic designs, which dominate the first act. The main break finds Eyal showcasing Nevee’s heartrending vocals over a sinister electronic underbelly. These warped sonic sketches build a discernible tension which lifts the mood higher and on to an invigorating conclusion. A standout production from Eyal which caps off a superb remix package from Sound Avenue. Don’t miss it.
