Ad Brown - Tonica [SILKRL009]

Londoner Ad Brown (a.k.a. Maxi Valvona) has quickly established himself as a global force in progressive, with a torrid output of tracks this past year that have found a home on a litany of elite labels, including Anjunadeep and Black Hole. The Original Mix centers on a a haunting arp motif, with other subtle side melodies and gated effects filling out the rest of the body. In vintage form, Ad highlights these elements in the break, as well as builds the energy for a potent dancefloor-ready drop. Veteran Swedish producer Audible, whose "Wonder Alley" remix remains one of the label's proudest moments, returns to Silk Royal with a powerful, yet poignant interpretation. Playing off the main themes of the original, Audible also has added a chordy new synth lead and "robotic" vocal effect, which often heralds a rhythmic change or break in the track. Finally, rising Russian outfit Eximinds steps up the tempo and intensity with their anthemic interpretation. Perhaps the most suitable to the clubs, Eximinds' remix includes various melodic interpretations of the original theme, including a gorgeous piano solo in the main break.
