Vulcan debuted at #15 on the Beatport Progressive House Releases and within days aggressively worked its way to #4 within a week, thanks to an overwhelmingly positive response from early promos support!
Vulcan is a bouncy, full-on techy progressive belter, with a morphing bass riff that gets in your head and simply will not quit. Lush pads carry the breakdown with waves of melody, before the deep kicks and grooves respawn, guiding the mind to a state of analog bliss. The tune was debuted in Abstrakt.Digital’s first ever Live PA at Miami Music Week earlier this year, to rave reviews. It’s the culmination of almost 2 decades of musical passion and a recent creative explosion for this new and promising artist, and you can hear it and feel it in every note.
Barry Jamieson, now THIS is a man who needs no introduction to fans of progressive house and techno. Starting as one half of the iconic duo Evolution, to working on remixes for Madonna, New Order, Depeche Mode, UNKLE and Seal (for which he was co-nominated for a Grammy), to his long-time creative partnership with none other than Sasha and his more recent releases for labels like Bedrock and Pangea- Barry’s pedigree in the world of electronic music is simply first class. Which would be a very good way to describe his remix of Vulcan. Big, smooth prog vibes with lovely pianos, it’s already got the nod from the man himself (yes, we mean Sasha). Not much more to be said, just listen for yourself- it’s a timeless piece we hope you’ll be playing for a long time to come.
Lastly, label boss Noel Sanger has taken the opportunity to add his take to the release of this future classic. A champion of the original since its’ inception, Noel brought the tune into more energetic territory, with rolling techno rhythms, layers of analog arps and melodies, and the original motif, that inescapable bass-riff, weaving in and out of the production. Fans of Noel’s recent releases will love this one, with it’s more aggressive and dark techno influence, and all of the sophisticated composition and flourishes Noel is known for.
Each of these mixes brings a different flavor to the release, with something for most everyone in the global Dissident family. This release will positively rock your dancefloor! We are really excited about it, and for more from Abstrakt.Digital in the coming months!
