Making his sixth appearance on the Armada Music sub-label, Italy’s longserving Progressive tune monger Antillas returns to Zouk Recordings to release his festival-proof rework of Dankann’s ‘Unika’.
Drawing on the euphoric realms of Trance and Progressive House and expanding its melodic canvas with impressive vigour, Antillas puts an Arty-esque twist on Dankann’s unheard original. Rich in synth-led opulence and boasting that peak time energy that continues to dominate the festival scene, the Milan producer complements the ambiguous top line with instrumental work that may lack in overall production value, but excels on the merits of invigorating energy.
The Italy DJ’s and producers Antillas and Dankann have been responsible for numerous gate-crashers over the past couple of years, including the immense and highly supported rework of Christian Marchi and Nari & Milani’s I Got You, featuring the voice of Max C, among others. Taking on Pier Poropat and Adam Rickfors‘ new single Crooked Lightning on Pink Rabbit Records, it does surely seem we’ve got yet another smash on our hands from the Italians, going from a brilliant breakdown resonance fluctating with an epic siren as it’s approaching a drum-driven drop.
