Pete McCarthey AKA On & On – Maggie (Dopamine Music)

The 24th release on Dopamine Music featured Pete McCarthey’s ‘Maggie’. It was released in early March and featured an excellent remix from veteran producer Kosmas Epsilon. The release went down as one of Dopamine’s coolest and most well received to date. Now for Dopamine’s 25th overall release we see the label presenting a brand new interpretation of ‘Maggie’ from the much hyped Simply City production duo.

Cesar Bass Romero and Ruben Fellsound make up the Simply City production team and are based in Montreal, Quebec and Santiago, Chile respectively. The duo’s Arthur Baker ‘Breaker’s Revenge’ sampled ‘Breaking’ which was released on Nick Warren’s Hope Recordings in 2013 was a huge breakthrough and the pair have been much hyped ever since. For their ‘Maggie’ interpretation Simply City has crafted a superb complement to the previously released Original and Kosmas Epsilon mixes. The duos tough kick is pristinely polished and hits with a dynamic bounce that gives the piece amazing energy straight away. The waves of hypnotic bass tones lay down a wicked foundation while the delicately sequenced pianos are undeniably haunting. As the warm textures begin to gradually encompass the framework a heightened sense of emotion is soon realized. The main breakdown just furthers that as the fluttering rhythms and spacey electronics are sure to raise some goosebumps on your dance floor. The one and only Hernan Cattaneo has already been a huge supporter of the production. The hugely influential DJ has not only featured the track on his Resident Delta FM radio show but has also charted it for the month of April. A superb production from Simply City who continue to impress and leave their quickly growing fan base wanting more.
