Leading with strong Progressive hallmarks, ‘Alienz’ goes in the same vein as it’s predecessor for a mixture of full-bodied synth work, weighty kicks and heavy, growling undertones.

21-year-old Orlando producer Dallas Koehlke, best known as DallasK, makes an overdue return to the release front following last year’s remix of Tune In Tokyo’s ‘Ray Of Love‘ with a label debut offering for Wolfgang Gartner’s Kindergarten Recordings in ‘Vice’.

Jumping between fidgety synths and stadium-worthy chord play, his grinding sound scope of sturdy kicks and piercing lead play is a testament to underdog productions of a high calibre. While missing out on the epic production values of his more esteemed peers, his young age has clearly not diluted his ability to produce intricate Electro of promising traits.

Award winning Aussie outlet Denzal Park are a musical force to be reckoned with. Boasting platinum records across their vast discography of stimulating club cuts and masked pop-favourites, the loyalties of Kam Denny and Paul Zala have always remained very much in the court of adrenaline soaked floor-fillers.

Ditching the thrills of overcomplicated effects for a solid melodic adaptation of Tune In Tokyo’s overlooked original, the duo’s take on ‘Ray Of Love’ is a welcoming rendition of the tracks strong vocal assets and finely tuned rises. Though lacking the same vital qualities as their aptly renowned solo work, this track undoubtedly benefits from a promising injection from this adept Aussie Electronic outfit.

Where Denzal Park’s remix covers the grounds of a solid Progressive House outing, Dallas Koehlke’s take reflects on an enigmatic and a far more melodic chord progression to complement the original’s already mesmerizing top line. Hinting a rather smooth take on the playful Electro House interludes that have become something of a trend lately within this else progressive remix, the 20-year-old Orlando residing DallasK’s latest and possibly best work to date indicates that his ascent to the status of one of America’s most promising up-and-comers is nothing short of well-deserved.
