4. No Way Out (Leon Remix)
Welcome back, Mr. David Aurel! Fresh for 2k18 the young and talented Swiss producer makes a return to the Hive Audio stable with his second full on release on the label, providing two excellent new original tracks alongside remixes crafted by Shawnecy and Leon.
With the title track „Like This“ David Aurel redefines the definition of 'pumping' for this season and brings on a stripped down, yet highly functional take on House music which is surely living up to the expectation bar raised by its massively rolling bassline and carefully placed, well seductive vocal samples.
On a remix tip for „Like This“ is Shawnecy who's surely staying close to the tunes original vibe but explores way deeper, livelier and all embracing sub spheres, adds subtle sweeps and a new, fascinating layer of percussive synth tones and stabs which are building up to a truly mesmerizing, still stripped down climax in House.
The second original tune on here is David Aurel's „No Way Out“, another masterly crafted example of his thrilling signature sound. Once again stripping things down to the very core this is another, slightly more percussive and tribal'esque, House banger mainly relying on nothing but a deep ass rolling bass, funky drums, microcut vocal bits and short, but ecstatic breakdown sequences which all add up to provide timeless qualities for recent and future dancefloors.
With Leon on remix duties „No Way Out“ takes a new route, fusing classic House and TechHouse elements with a bubbly mid-range bassline and beautifully floating strings, endless drum rolls and fascinating main motif sending our braincells into an accelerating upward spiral of pure joy and everlasting happiness.
