With a torrid output of acclaimed productions this past year, Derek Silvester, a.k.a. Dezza, has witnessed a quick rise to prominence. Winner of Pete Tong's Bedroom Bedlam Contest for "Celebrate," Dezza has also been heavily supported of late by Tiesto and Paul Van Dyk. Silk Royal's sophomore release, "Xafilah," is yet another explosive dancefloor cut from the Canadian phenom, whose hometown of Halifax, Nova Scotia receives a cheeky tribute in the "backwards" title. In the Original Mix, powerful beats and a funky lead arp set an energetic tone early; later on, a thunderous bassline joins the hypnotic lead for a glorious, Prydz-like break. Schodt, best known for his Top 10 Beatport Progressive House hit "First Breath" ft. Aqua Diva, has been another great story of 2009, with an impressive catalogue of work already out this year on Starlight, Proton Particles, Unreleased Digital, and Silk affiliates Mango Alley and Silk Sofa. His Lockout Remix is more "classic" prog, with smoother beats and a deeper bassline than the Original Mix. Yet, like the original, Schodt's take crescendos into a melodic progressive stormer, including an incisive new piano lead in the main break. Finally, Roddy Reynaert (a.k.a. "Audiog8" & "Telemode") provides a funkier house interpretation; while still preserving the lead melodies of the original, his mix centers on a more "hoppy" rhythm section and a hyper-oscillating lead synth, which takes center stage in the break.
