"An oldie, but a favourite of mine. You just wanna turn it up! One of the coolest tunes made!"
Superb Lewis Parker rerub of Group Home veteran's track, interpolating elements of 'Livin' Proof' (deliciously) and laying down some seriously lambent jazzadelia over the rock-solid beats. As ever with Parker, excess to requirements and thus absolutely spot-on.
Brutal beats from these two young, hot acts, both headliners in their own right on the rawstyle scene, teaming up for this big hit on Zany’s Fusion label. Featuring a twisted nightmarish vocal, creepy dark pads and a surprising drop without much build, which smacks you in the face with a haunted LFO-driven distorted glide sound, adding some melody in the darkness.
Israeli studio whiz Maor Levimade his name as a producer with some stunning progressive trance for the Anjunabeats stable in his early days, though he’s largely crossed over into EDM in recent years. However, ‘Pixel Hearts’ is an irresistible gem that manages to bring together the different elements of his appeal. It’s a homerun of noisy electro euphoria that marries the energy of Hardwell and Above & Beyond with a breakdown that’s aimed squarely at the festival main stages, and a sub-bass growl lurking in the melodic riff that does maximum damage. Made for the EDM crowd though it may be, Levi’s studio work is unspeakably tight.
