• Detail-oriented craft
• Sweet, high-pitched vocal that softly clashes with the dark atmosphere
• Complex patterns, especially in the pre-drop
There is a certain warm feeling associated with seeing recognizable names working together, especially when least expected! As a matter of fact, I did review Apaztron’s banger “Ares” a couple of years ago (a revealed.dj release). Further, I had to congratulate him on his main publication “Odin”, and on the other hand the duo Codex (SE) are a new addition to my personal radar after a catchy and vicious Trance Room creation, “Nova”. And the last individual involved is Mike Miami, an upcoming name whom I discovered while exploring the Codex’s discography. The trio presents a great synergy, and the expert touch from Apaztron has brought along a broader vision in the Big Room domain, while adhering to the trademark elements of this genre as expected.
“Remedy”, which is now out on Revealed Radar, tries to bend some of the textbook rules with a dash of creativity and experience. Even if not having a godly demeanor in its title, the gritty influence of the Swedish veteran stabs the ear with a brutal performance, and then adding a layer of Codex and Mike Miami’s signature components. The vocal is attention-grabbing: I rarely find myself enjoying high-pitched sounds, but this delicate approach somehow clashes pleasantly with the dark base underneath it. The complex evolutions of the build-up were certainly a risky decision to execute, as I had to repeat it a couple of times, trying to take in the details driving this segment.
The final drop, which concludes my in-depth analysis, delivers a slightly more energetic and playful bassline with auxiliary FXs in the backdrop, an excellent idea which satisfied my tastes! In this realm of a standardized genre, the attention to details is fundamentally requisite to excel.
Apaztron, Codex and Mike Miami fused their efforts in a brilliant direction, ending up with a club-destructive explosive that stands for its unique dynamic and complex attributes. It wouldn’t be surprising to see anyone (or altogether) on leading imprints like Rave Culture, should they upheld this precision!
