With Mononoid’s new remix of Vitaly Shturm ‘The Feelings’ out now on Clinique Recordings, we take a look at what’s been rocking their dance floors in the latest edition of What’s In Your Box?
1. Guy J – Stolen Memory (Original Mix) [Plattenbank]
Our mate from Tel-Aviv is back with a stunning proggie-tech original. The whistle part reminds us of “Once upon a time in the West”. Guy always finds a way to create dreamy “lost in space” kinda sound elements. On repeat and dancing for hours in a row is guaranteed.
2. Cid Inc. – Orbiter (Original Mix) [microCastle]
This out of the ordinary track is very profound and straightforward and features the sort of low acid frequencies we love. Combined with the laid back pad for an proggie vibe and the contrasted bald Techno Rhythm section keeps the track imperturbable moving forward.
3. Oovation feat. Laura Barrick – Devotion (Ryan Davis Re-Visit) [Univack]
Super bass line, Ryan’s way of editing sounds is simply unique but with this killer it looks like he’s taken it to the limit. The groove synth which is atmospherically brilliantly embedded in the track is reminiscent of Knight Rider.
4. Roger Martinez – Trans (Original Mix) [Lost & Found]
Listening to this one, we are drifting away to a sandy beach dancing in the moments when the night is starting to become the next day. The Pads are perfectly chosen and the atmosphere Roger delivers is just wonderful. Generally, we are not really fond of arpeggios, but in TRANS Martinez succeeds in proving us wrong as the arp gives the song this warm feeling we are searching for in music.
5. Kollektiv Turmstrasse – Hour After Hour (Original Mix) [Diynamic]
The perfect example of the ‘less is sometimes more’ style principle and how a great bass line can get your ass moving. Only the Turmstrasse boys know how to select and limit the elements and sounds of a track with such precision and security to make such a groovy but understated song. Play it out loud and the crowd goes mental.
6. Marc De Pulse – Usambara (Original Mix) [Einmusika]
We love this track for its Deep and dark theme melody, which creates a memorizing theme that is deeply embedded throughout the entire track. The toms before the drop are just brilliant. Risky, but we like a bit of a risk in songs.
7. Stephan Bodzin – Lila (Original Mix) [Herzblut]
The master of melodies is back and as good as ever. It was hard to pick just one track of his new album because all are fantastic. This particular track won us over with its groovy rhythm section, a touching melody line and the bass cut off open and close. Seemingly an easy and simple task but in reality one of the hardest style elements there is and Mr Bodzin did it again. Simplicity at his best. Chapeau
8. Pete Oak, Notize – Merula (Martin Roth Remix) [Subjekt]
This track represents Melodic techno in its purest form. With its catchy theme, its mastering in editing and rounded up with amazing noise and distortion sections edited. This is the track you should choose if you wanna get the girls on the dance floor.
9. 16 Bit Lolitas – Not The Only One (Original Mix) [Anjunadeep]
Anjunadeep and 16Bit teamed up for a smooth smasher with a great Bass line and pads that are played wonderfully for this track. As usual when it comes to Lolitas music and extra touch is established this time with an memorizing guitar synth that’s floating through the entire song.
10. Andre Sobota – Morning Lust (Microtrauma Remix) [microCastle]
Our friends from Saint Annaberg created a track that you could easily recall as a typical Micro piece of music. With its straight forward bass line and the smooth melody synth with a tiny bit of distortion edited it is a strong floor filler and perfect to get the crowd moving in any club or festival.
