Nicholas Petracca - The Moon Shines On Me

Both E Sound and Nicolas are currently riding a wave of amazing releases. The UK imprint is now in full swing following their launch in July of 2014. Progress Inn’s Janko Dragovic aka Desaturate chose to debut his new alias with the label and the release enjoyed a month long run in Beatport’s Progressive House chart. Nicolas has been incredibly prolific since the beginning of 2014 and his ‘Nothing Is What It Seems’ EP (in conjunction with Ezequile Anile) on Nikko.Z’s Dopamine Music was one of the year’s best progressive house releases. Heavy play and chart support from Hernan Cattaneo has made Nicolas one of the more recognized talents from Argentina and his latest for E Sounds should only further that.

The release begins with ‘The Moon Shines On Me’ which would have to be one of if not the most beautiful production of Nicolas’ career. If you love poignant soundscapes and emotive vocal elements then this absolutely belongs in your music collection. The simplicity of the track is quite refreshing; it’s smooth, percussive and overall summery sounding groove is the perfect canvas for all those emotional motifs to work their magic over. Lovely work from Nicolas.

The companion piece ‘Between The Clouds’ finds Nicolas with an equally gorgeous creation. Beginning with a chugging groove and smooth rhythmic layers it doesn’t take long before you’re deeply engaged with this one. There’s a really nice bounce to the framework and the playful melodies along with phasing vocal textures make for a really dreamy yet quite danceable ride. Two amazing productions from Nicolas which amounts to another awesome release for E Sound who continue to impress. Don’t miss it.
