The latest release from Nikko.Z's Dopamine White finds the label showcasing new interpretations of D-Rhapsody's ‘Rip Current' EP. Released in 2017 on parent label Dopamine Music, it was the Italian duo's debut on the Greek imprint. Spread across four tracks the EP showcased D-Rhapsody's unique blend of deep grooves, progressive rhythms and charming atmospheres. Fast forward four years and the Italian duo are now primary contributors to the Dopamine Music labels, with a second EP in 2018 and two star-studded remix editions. Now as the summer season approaches Dopamine White revisits D-Rhapsody's ‘Rip Current' EP with new interpretations from Gabo Martin and Jesuan M, Andre Moret and Ric Niels.

Leading the release off and providing the lone interpretation of ‘Rip Current' is Gabo Martin and Jesuan M. The Argentinean duo made their Dopamine White debut to begin the year with the release of their ‘Mirage' EP in January, the lead track of which now sits atop their Beatport best sellers. Continuing to build their creative synergy, the duo now returns to the label for their first remix, taking ‘Rip Current' into pure progressive territory. Fluid rhythms, mountainous bass tones and driving percussion set the course for this peak time journey. Mounds of perfectly contoured bass roll forward with momentous swing, as striking electronics, aquatic effects and emerging atmospheres smoothly shift energy into an emotive break. Cinematic and poignant, the centrepiece furthers the enchanting narrative with harmonic refrains and hopeful overlays, before muscular breakbeats reset the groove for a charged finale.

Returning to the label and providing the lone interpretation of ‘Mad Spirals' is Andre Moret. The Brazilian artist and Hernan Cattaneo favourite made his debut on the Greek imprint in November of 2019 with his ‘Instant Mind' EP, before returning the following year with a well received remix of Rafa'EL's ‘Neon Dreams'. A strong start to 2021 has seen the Campinas resident record remixes for Balkan Connection, Clubsonica, Nature Rec and more. Now continuing to delight progressive music fans Andre returns to Dopamine White with a stellar take on ‘Mad Spirals'.  Smooth yet groovy, the creation flows through a storyboard of undulating bass, charming tones and sweeping effects, before shifting energy into a grandiose break. Concise and heartfelt, the centrepiece is nostalgic in nature, projecting waves of emotion as poignant pianos and spine-tingling atmospheres set up a feel-good final movement.

Rounding out the release with the lone interpretation of ‘Cycles' is Ric Niels who returns to the label following his ‘Savon' EP from March of this year. Only a year into his journey as a producer, the Argentinean artist has already compiled an impressive resume, highlighted by releases for Clubsonica, Mango Alley, Movement Recordings and Soundteller Records. Now furthering his bond with Dopamine White, Ric returns to the label with an exhilarating interpretation of ‘Cycles'. Smooth and powerful, it's a mesmerizing journey into the depths of peak time progressive house. Tougher than the original, its muscular framework is offset with crunchy rhythms, astral artefacts and effervescent effects. It's dark narrative slowly draws you in as the first act evolves, perfectly setting up a sinister, effects laden break which should not only light up your dance floor, but perfectly sets up a commanding drop and energetic finale. A massive interpretation from Ric Niels, which caps off an excellent remix edition for D-Rhapsody's ‘Rip Current'.
