Dezza, Mango - Apartment In Agia Napa [ALLEY013]

Thirteen proves to be a lucky number for the latest release on Mango Alley -- a collaboration between acclaimed Canadian producer Dezza and label namesake, Mango. The Original begins with a deep kick, as a filtered and panned melody slowly drifts into center focus. Like Agia Napa, the stunning resort town in Cyprus overlooking the Mediterranean, the lead hook and seaside samples surrounding it further evoke a middle-of-summer, beachside sensation. In the climax of the tune, a gorgeous new arpeggio and gated pad have been added, reinforcing the blissfulness of this famed locale. In the first of two remixes, Mango Alley veteran Rodskeez maintains the pleasant, offshore spirit of the original, while still giving it a (signature) rhythmic head-to-toe makeover. Melodically, he has chosen to build off of the euphoric arp from the original, including clever new vox stabs. Virtuoso Hungarian musician Aeron Aether has provided the second remix, a down-tempo interpretation, in which the melodies really take center stage. In the background, heavily processed beats have been masterfully reduced to a series of hyper-processed, yet "orderly" glitches.
