‘Materia Chapter.Two’ - Cosmic Gate’s forthcoming artist album (landing: 01.09.17), has a number of first-time production collaborations to its tracklist. None perhaps are more long awaited (and we suspect anticipated!) than its second single. A big drumroll then please for the tech-trance titan that is ‘AR’ - Nic & Bossi’s first studio connect with Markus Schulz.
From its outset ‘AR’s urgent riffs - tightrope-tense in their delivery - are flanked by stormy drums and super-low frequency bass. Rising to a mighty crescendo in the drop, Nic, Bossi & Markus exact and extract every ounce of late night floor-essence from the ripped tech of its indomitable mainline. ‘AR’ arrives today and if you’ve pre-ordered ‘Materia Chapter.Two’, it should be arcing its way into download folder right about now! Alternatively, you can also pick up/listen to the trio’s collective musical reckoning as a standalone single here
‘AR’ aside, ‘Chapter.Two’s opening single is still wowing floors and radiowaves aplenty too. Having scaled the loftier reaches of Beatport’s #10, ‘Tonight’s official video hit YouTube last week. The Emma Hewitt sung floor-hymn is now delighting eye as well as ear and you can check out the track that Dancing Astronaut hailed as “ethereal” with a “moody and emotional undertone” here
