SEQU3L – A Starfall Night / Ataraxia (Movement Recordings)

The 71st release on Movement Recordings sees the return of the hugely up and coming SEQU3L to the label for his first EP. The Indian producer made his debut on Movement only a few short months ago with a huge remix of Tash & Magitman’s “Volt Afterhours’. SEQU3L’s debut EP for Movement is entitled ‘A Starfall Night / Ataraxia’ and it comes with remixes from: Stage Van H & Rogier, Stergios and Steve Self.

‘Ataraxia’ starts things off with a warm, atmospheric progressive vibe. The big bassy swells deliver some incredible impact early on while the panning electronics provide some mesmerizing energy. The musicality and ascending hypnotics displayed during the main drop are absolutely intoxicating and should have your dance floor covered in goose bumps. Driving drums, soft rhythmic tones and long gaseous sweeps carry the track through a wonderful climax which you won’t soon forget. The lone remix of ‘Ataraxia’ comes from Stage Van H & Rogier who have just come off their ‘Persian Impact EP’ which was released in early February on Movement. For their ‘Ataraxia’ interpretation Stage and Rogier have delivered a gorgeously deep beach inspired remix. In taking the lovely melodic parts from the main drop and presenting them throughout the composition along with wispy vocal elements and subtle melodic hooks Stage & Rogier have crafted the ultimate summer anthem.

The second original on the package ‘A Starfall Night’ begins with a tough, punchy groove that’s surrounded by some nice electronic hooks and a wispy atmospheric backdrop. The meaty bass line soon drops in and comes with a killer roll. Offset stabs add some big rhythms which intensify along with the pulsating hypnotic lines. The main break strips things down and presents a colossal build which is destined to blow the roof off of a large room. Huge track from SEQU3L. The first remix of ‘A Starfall Night’ is provided by Stergios who is returning to Movement for his sixth overall appearance. The Greek producer has recreated the great groove from the original with a new deeper twist. Full of lively hypnotic rhythms, subtle vocal stabs and smooth melodies Stergios has more than crafted a worthy complement to the massive original. Closing the package out with the final remix of ‘A Starfall Night’ is Steve Self who is making his second appearance on Movement following his remix of Aris Rodis ‘The Snake’ from February of this year. Steve’s delivered a superb deep rework which comes with a rolling bass line, complementary rhythms and an infectious flow that’s tailor made for the dance floor. Steve’s groove is undeniable and with the drops being not only keep to a minimum but also short it’s perfect for keeping the energy flowing. Release Promo Hype Chart Top 25
