Continuing to add exciting new faces to their roster, Nikko.Z's Dopamine White welcomes Airbas and Paul Daze to the label for their debut EP. Based in Italy, both Airbas and Paul have established themselves in the world of progressive house. The duo's collective discography is highlighted by releases via Freegrant Music, Hoomidaas, One Of A Kind and Suprematic, while earning support from electronic music's top tastemakers along the way. Now following a collaborative effort for Blackboard to begin the year, Airbas and Paul make their Dopamine White debut with ‘Follow The Sun'.
Landing as the duo's most engaging production to date is the title selection ‘Follow The Sun'. Played out over six plus minutes, its swing heavy groove, rolling rhythmic structures and flashing percussive arrangements unite for amazing moments across the first act. Adding further depth to the journey, a memorable vocal sample and wavy arp emerge out of the first break, sitting against a backdrop of smooth chord changes. Landing in a timely manner, the second break brings a great emotional response, with processed pianos and classy modulation uniting for a spirited apex and driving finale.
The second selection ‘Orange Illusion' finds Airbas working in solo capacity with a darker more hypnotic sensibility. Sleeker than its predecessor, the Italian artist marries pulsating rhythms and flashy percussive arrangements over a meditative groove. Once again, the main break is set to captivate dance floors with an array of broken beats, siren-like tones and rising modulation, all of which unite for an understated crescendo and groove-centric final act.
Continuing to diversify the release, the EP concludes with the more emotive ‘Floating'. Once again operating in solo capacity, Airbas crafts a traditional progressive framework, complete with warm undulating grooves, airy arps and nostalgic chord changes. Bright and colourful throughout, it's the main break which proves most captivating, melting down to muted kicks and hazy harmonics, as a flurry of indie-inspired drums sparks a smooth finish. It rounds out an excellent three-track offering from Airbas and Paul Daze, who make an excellent Dopamine White debut as we enter 2022's second quarter.
