Three weeks back, through the medium of their Mexico Sundowner rooftop show from San Miguel De Allende, Cosmic Gate presented its audience with ‘Mosaiik’’s second single ‘Feel It’. Whetting appetites for their forthcoming 11th artist album, the response to the single and show apparently saw half a million plus YouTube views within weeks.
Such, in fact, was the track’s feedback that Nic & Bossi have just released a remix from Avira, an artist who for 12 months or more has been moving ever closer to the centre of their radar. The productions and remixes of the Kuwaiti-born/Canadian-based artist have proved features in their Miami Open Skies, Mexico Sundowner and WakeYourMind Radio set-lists.
Avira takes the track down a deeper, more progressive and sometimes even tech-tinged road. Moodily modifying it, he’s trimmed the tempo and built deeper bass throb, percussive pop and filmic FX into his version. Mid-break, the track’s vocal is punctuated by the analogue drama of its sci-fi-esque synth-stabs, which boom up its centre section.
