UK producer Jay Ardrey aka Mindset is still only 19 but has already forged his own distinct sound, a well-deserved name for himself and huge respect among fellow producers and the progressive house community.
His forthcoming original on Macarize, ‘Olympus’, is the perfect example of his talent in fusing progressive and trance with unique amounts of emotive intensity. ‘Olympus’ brings you warm topline melodies tinged with trademark Mindset melodic vibe surrounded by shimmering waves of trance synths, a piano hook so beautiful it actually makes your heart ache, a deliciously old-skool sound and driving bassline.
Matao's remix unleashes a funkified bassline, kicking drums that will drive you straight to the dancefloor, soaring overarching synths and teasingly feel-good piano hooks…but it’s the killer combination of disco-edged electrifying stabs and effortlessly uplifting vocals that will really have you reaching for the lasers.
Meanwhile, stylish Swede David Folkebrant delivers a remix that’s more ‘pure’ progressive; its irresistibly funky bassline groove hooks you in straight away while his piano-heavy feel-good flourishes, instantly uplifting chord progressions and endless layers of twinkling topline melodies will make you smile from ear to ear.
Supported by Jaytech on TATW400 (Live in Beyrouth), Kris O'Neil, Flash Brothers, Faskil and more.
