By turns, ‘Falling Back’, ‘Fair Game’ and Electronic Family’s 2014 anthem ‘Telefunken’ came… and conquered. Most recently, through its Mark Sixma rework, ‘Falling Back’ produced a successive lightning strike, impressively ringing the Beatport no.1 chart bell for a second time!
Now, spinning ‘Start To Feel’s fearless style-dial once again, Cosmic Gate’s smash album serves up another super-fresh frequency. Following Nic & Bossi’s July/August coast-to-coast US bus tour (all the official YouTube action here! http://bit.ly/1vqGn3a), demand for one of its live performance standouts reached fever pitch. With star-in-the-making Kristina Antuna on vocals; Nic & Bossi delivering, quite possibly their catchiest production ever and Maor Levi sending his version-excursion clean out of the park, its time for some ‘Alone’ time!
West Coast ethics run deep with Vegas-born/LA based singer Kristina Antuna, whose striking vocals and implored lyrics occupy ‘Alone’s sonic foreground. By turns heartstring pulling and latterly emotionally elevating, with their production Nic & Bossi track her mood note-for-note. Pianoforte lines and fluttering synths channel the vibe further, before the swell of the pads and controlled surge of the pitch-wheel seamlessly catches the peak of Kristina’s chorus.
A tap of the squelch button, an extra squeeze of FX injection and some judicious electro-lining distortion, and its all (festival) systems GO! on Maor Levi’s remix! He re-positions ‘Alone’ to a later set spin, sending it hurtling towards mainstage.
An elegant summer swansong, and no doubt likely to light up those longer nights ahead as well, Nic & Bossi flip ‘Start To Feel’s fourth straight ace. ‘Alone’ is out on the 10th November
