At the outset of what promises to be a strong year for the renowned Dutch beatsmith, Marco V’s ‘Anologital’ was always going to be open to substantial intervention from his European peers. Leading with a distinct take on Marco V’s tamer original cut, rising Dutch duo Bassjackers kick off proceedings with a distinctly lead driven outing of mechanically pitched Progressive House that emulates the renowned energy of their respective homeland scene. Like-minded peers First State then step in to bring an overtly heavier outing of deep and resonating leads and heavy-hearted bass frequencies for the grittier remix of this package. Russian two-piece Hard Rock Sofa then take ‘Analogital’ to their own persuasive peak time heights, lacing their signature tough Electro vices onto the sterling melodic play boasted by Marco’s original score to top off a dignified package for TAO.
