Mango, whose unique brand of melodic progressive house inspired the creation of our imprint, returns to our parent label with "Pillow Fights", one of the standout tracks from his recent artist album, "Citylanes Airplanes". A collaboration with Richard J Aarden, the Original Mix features all of the distinctive elements of Mango's sound that have inspired us for so many years. More specifically, an uplifting chord progression and light, minimalistic rhythm create a "weightless" and deeply soothing soundscape. Aarden's soulful vocals and thoughtful lyrics are equally cathartic. The uplifting, yet slightly melancholic chords guide the listener into the main break, where a delicate piano and Aarden's pensive vocals reach even greater emotional depths.

Blood Groove & Kikis, who are now regularly supported by the industry elite on major house, trance & progressive radio shows alike, offer the one and only remix in the package. They are an especially suitable choice, given their great talent for both melody and atmosphere. Their interpretation, not surprisingly, offers a bit more of a DJ-centered groove, yet is no less soulful than the original. The main chords have been reworked, while the vocal remains the lead element of the track. In the main break, autumnal synths enhance the poignance of Aarden's gorgeous vocals.
