The latest release from Nikko.Z's Dopamine White finds Lio Q and Nicolas Leonelli collaborating on a new EP. The Argentinean duo have been frequent studio partners since first pairing in November of last year with a release on Just Movement. Subsequent outings on Deepwibe Underground, One Of A Kind and Strangers Beats have made them one of progressive music's duos to watch. Now debuting on Dopamine White Lio and Nicolas present their ‘Red Forest' EP. 

Spread across two tracks it's the tough yet bouncy mood of the title selection which leads the release off. Punchy beats and nicely sculpted bass unite for a powerful low end, while trippy vocal fragments and metallic percussion advance the narrative. Haunting overlays lead into the main break as a luminous arp rises to prominence. Undeniably progressive, its emotive quirks play off a backdrop of cinematic pads, before perfectly shifting energy into a powerful drop and groovy finale.

‘Fairywren' follows suit with its driving bass lines and darker undertones. Robust rhythms carry the muscular foundation, while neatly tailored percussion and playful arps sweep across the stereo field. Energy and tension continue to rise, as placid pads and wispy effects segue into an expansive break. Clocking in at nearly two minutes in length, the centrepiece melts down to a quiet calm, offering a tranquil headspace for a gentle build and pulsating final movement. A gorgeous production from Lio Q and Nicolas Leonelli, who continue to build a great partnership with their Dopamine White debut.
