Now into their 10th release Cinematic further solidifies it's reputation as a prolific and forward thinking electronic record label with a showcase of heavyweight artists and remixes of the highest quality.
With this release, label figurehead Soy Mustafa shares an esoteric vision for what can be best described as a zeitgeist: a shift in the collective consciousness leading away from the material and into the spiritual. In "Return of the Anunnaki" Soy expresses this sentiment with an atmospheric backdrop of ethereal melodies and incessant rhythms.
In the original mix, Soy joins the dots between broken 909 drums, epic pads and a pumping duo-phonic bassline that builds with emotion and creates a desolate experience that's withdrawn yet captivating.
More than a remix, John Tejada flips the script with a lighter, more uplifting interpretation. Using lush and dreamy builds, he creates a sense of optimism and a culmination of energies that when brought together create a melodious finale.
Rounding off the package, Berlin based Brendon Gregoriy aka Chymera goes all out with a gut wrenching, dubbed techno groove that pounds in its relentless approach adding a no nonsense mix thats straight to the point.
