Following in the footsteps of countryman Mord Fustang, Estonia’s latest EDM export Probe returns to make another appearance on Miles Dyson’s Plasmapool label – an imprint well-known by its successful efforts in discovering and bringing up new talents. Not one to get lost in a crowd, Probe has already proven a significant force to Plasmapool’s proceedings in 2012. Coming off the release of ‘Ultimate‘ last month, ‘Time Machine’ is not only the Estonian’s third instalment on the label but further testament to his versatile style. Flipping from an emotive and sweepy chord progression to considerably heavier electro-house oriented beats, ‘Time Machine’ fortifies Probe as a promising household name under the Plasmapool banner.
Estonia’s new kid on the block Probe may not posses the hallmarks of a household name, but his indefinite explosion to life comes with perceptive force. Joining the ranks of German imprint Plasmapool, his latest efforts may well be the tipping point for this young and restless producer from the Baltic shores. While its intricate weavings of distant melodic play may spell out a digressive turn to the ambient, ‘Ultimate’ is an aptly attributed banger in disguise. Putting feel-good flavours at the forefront of its sizeable progressions, this outing’s digression into the well-manifested realms of wobble-educed Electro House make for a qualified pairing of muscle and melodics that compliment each other with a rare sense of unified energy.
