Journey (Musumeci Remix)

Ayala (IT)

MoBlack Records
MBR378 | 2020-04-10  
Casting a new chapter into MoBlack Records' repertoire, Musumeci embraces Ayala's winter dance floor igniter and lends his signature electro-disco inspired provision, taking the track on, for what it is essentially, a "Journey." The South Italian DJ/Producer sets the 7:12 ensemble's energy high from the get-go, riveting electronic groove at the core, tempered hi-hat sears, kaleidoscopic synth, and poignant chords. Pulsating European flair while maintaining the equatorial Afro House climate, Musumeci nosedives into a labyrinth Ayala had previously set forth, colliding in parallel speed, with the track's compelling ethnic vocals and lush atmosphere, through to a lustrous, sense-gratifying finish. When MoBlack dropped Ayala's Cosmic EP late last year, Journey's versatility stood out as the ideal baseboard for reinterpretation, which A-side delivered impeccably. After its elasticity was stretched taut and recoiled by Musumeci's deft multigenerational fingers and a noir touch, it only comes naturally, and in perfect order, that MB378 comes in full circle with Ayala's original mix. Journey, in its blithe, earthen grace, comes on B-side, a welcome, unwinding, arrival. Landing back, right at home.
