The latest release on Superordinate Music finds the label showcasing new remixes of Robert R. Hardy’s ‘Balance’.
Originally released in November of last year the track was part of Robert’s excellent ‘Dark Explorations’ EP. Now just over a year later Superordinate injects new life into the track with brand new interpretations from Michael A, Rafa’EL and Alfonso Muchacho.
First up, Michael A follows a contribution to the critically acclaimed ‘Replugged, Vol. 2’ collection with a progressive minded interpretation of ‘Balance’. The deeper, lush appeal of the original is still readily apparent but with more of a Lost & Found type vibe, particularly in the groove. Fresh vocal samples and a wide array of effects keep it nice and full while several melodic accents pull at your emotions all through a well crafted break and gorgeous conclusion. Beautiful remix from Michael.
Next up Rafa’EL makes his second appearance on the label following a remix of Robert’s ‘Soufian’ from July of this year. On ‘Balance’ the Polish artist takes a more emotive approach with warm bass swells and a prominent take on the melodic elements. It’s smoothness is what makes it such a joy to listen to and it’s got all the ingredients for the dance floor as well. Great remix from Rafa’EL.
Closing the release out is Alfonso Muchacho who returns to the label for this 10th appearance. It’s been a prolific year for the UK based artist with standout releases on ICONYC, PHW Elements and Stellar Fountain. Here he brings a bit more funk to ‘Balance’ with a mountainous groove and dynamic rhythms leading the charge. The break is certainly the biggest moment on the release with bands of electronics building to a shimmering tension, before the groove drops and all those spacey motifs rise higher for an exhilarating third act. Wicked remix from Alfonso and another great offering from Superordinate Music. Watch out for their best of 2016 collection due out very soon.
