This track has such a great groove, it’s impossible to not get moving with the beat. It’s one of the harder tracks I would play in my sets, and has many different elements that keep you engaged and surprised in comparison to other more techno-leaning tracks.
Paradoks often describes his own music as melodic and powerful, and this track is exactly that. It has emotion and so much power at the same time and takes you on a real ride. You are always engaged with this one.
This track is out this week, but I’ve been playing it for quite some time. It’s still one of my favourites. I just love working with cinematic breakdowns and the super-deep basslines while the strings make you fly.
Another stand-out track with a fantastic vibe. The synths take you on a mystical journey while the drums take you through lighter moods and create full tension in the right moments.
I first had a pretty chilled version in mind for this remix before I worked on this one that has a clubby approach to the track. Now I love the balance between the fragile but fierce vocals and the powerful beats. The crowd also always loves it, so this will definitely remain in my sets for some time.
This is such an immersive track! I love the deep rumbling basslines in this version of the track and Phoebe Tsen is a fantastic vocalist bringing an eery atmosphere in this one.
