The 35th release on Cid Inc’s Replug Records imprint welcomes Simos Tagias and Jorgio Kioris to the label.
The Greek duo and sometime studio partners have been hotly tipped this year. Simos has come up quickly since his debut release in December of 2012. Now a regular in the sets of Hernan Cattaneo his 2015 highlights include an EP for Nikko.Z’s Dopamine Music and a string of well received remixes. As CEO and Founder of Greece’s well known Bloque Festival Jorgio has been putting on one of his country’s biggest parties since 2013. Together, as a production duo Simos and Jorgio have been hotly tipped this year. A May release on Luke Porter’s Temporum Music was supported by Hernan Cattaneo and served as prelude for their latest studio creation ‘Exist’. Already building hype in the underground after appearing in the sets of Cid Inc for the last several months, the track is now set for release alongside a remix from the Replug label boss himself.
The groovy, percussive nature of Simos in conjunction with Jorgio’s warm, well textured rhythms have produced a real gem in ‘Exist’. Following a percussive, DJ friendly intro the duo unleash a funk laden groove which provides a boundless energy. With the rhythmic hooks now fully tantalizing the senses a summery motif drops in and flows through a storyboard of wonderful chord changes. Breaking down into its second act a more atmospheric dynamic is explored and slowly you’re whisked away to the heavens. The captivating interlude culminates with a warm rush of drums and beats, as waves of indistinct vocals carry you back into the powerful groove and on to a gorgeous conclusion. A brilliant production from Simos and Jorgio that’s going to be perfect for the end of the summer season.
The lone interpretation of ‘Exist’ is provided by Henri Hurtig aka Cid Inc. The Replug label boss has continued to dominate the Beatport charts all though the 2015 summer season. His critically acclaimed Sudbeat EP was followed by the recently released ‘Collection Vol. 2’; reaching Top 10 in four genres and earned chart, radio and club support from Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren and Guy Mantzur. For his ‘Exist’ interpretation Cid Inc. has taken the track in a different and equally inspired direction. With a markedly slowly tempo Henri’s rework of the groove is immediately charming. Phasing themes play through the first act before some wonderful designs initiate the breakdown. The two minute plus interlude builds a mystical presence before the main motif shines though the atmospheric haze for a moment of ethereal brilliance. It’s a heavenly vibe and one which the tastefully restrained conclusion makes all the more impactful. A gorgeous way to end the release and one of Cid Inc’s finest remixes no doubt. Don’t miss it.
