With 2021 winding to a close, Nikko.Z's Dopamine White welcomes Agustin Pengov back to the label for a new EP. Hailing from Villa Mercedes, the Argentinean artist has enjoyed a successful first year of production. Following contributions to samplers from Aletheia Recordings, Balkan Connection and Strangers Beats, Agustin made his Dopamine White debut in July with the well-received ‘Balance' EP. Also adding Droid9 and Massive Harmony Records to his resume across the year, Agustin now returns to Dopamine White with a three-track showcase entitled ‘Gloom'.
Beginning with the title selection, Agustin crafts an epic slice of progressive house that's dialled for a peaktime dance floor. Played out over eight minutes, it's muscular groove, pulsating rhythms and driving percussive arrangements come together for amazing moments across the first act. With the main break drawing closer harmonic phrasing fades to prominence, shifting the narrative from a heads down mentality to one of wistful reflection. Opening up further as the centrepiece expands, a gentle rush of noise unleashes the groove for a gorgeous melodic finale.
The EP continues with the deep, chugging vibes of ‘Maybe'. Immediately captivating, it's robust bassline, flickering arps and gaseous effects make for anticipatory beginnings. Rolling percussion adds swing to the framework, while cascading harmonies play off the well carved low end, as a smooth atmospheric rise initiates the break. Furthering its emotive leanings, the main motifs trail across the centrepiece, perfectly setting up an arpeggiated interlude as beats drop for a thunderous finish.
The release concludes with the equally impressive ‘Abyys'. Well in line with the previous selections, its striking beats and free flowing, energetic style conjures up colourful clubland images. A marriage of trippy effects and driving percussion set the stage for an indistinct yet impactful melodic theme. Once again, the main break is set to delight dance floors with its whimsical charm and understated build, the latter of which perfectly shifts energy into a fluid, atmospheric finale. Groovy and memorable, it rounds out a welcome return to Dopamine White for Agustin, who continues to be one of Argentina's most promising progressive house talents. Highly recommended.
