The latest release from Eat My Hat Music finds label boss Ziger back in the spotlight with a new single. The Greek artist has been enjoying the best year of his career, led by his 'Faded Realm' single which launched the label and enjoyed a month long stay a top Beatport's Progressive House Hype tracks chart. The Athens resident quickly followed that up with two Beatport Top 10 remixes of Nosh and SJ and Kenan Savrun, both of which carry the Eat My Hat stamp. Also laying claim to 2019 releases on Hernan Cattaneo's Sudbeat Music and Eleatics Records, Ziger now lands back on his comfortable home of Eat My Hat with 'Pleasure' alongside remixes from Fuenka and Juan Deminicis and Marcelo Dalessandro.
Continuing to operate at a creative peak Ziger aims squarely for a main room dance floor with 'Pleasure'. Anchored by a warm, full bodied groove the energy is palpable from the outset. Phasing vocals and percussive flurries incite dynamic moments early, as astral effects add depth and a rare ravey tension. Carrying into the main break it's an ethereal lead which descends over the cavernous centrepiece, elevating mood before an underlying drum roll launches you into euphoria's top floor.
The first interpretation of 'Pleasure' is provided by Fuenka who make their label debut. Based in London, Stuart Browne and Jimmy Lee make up the Fuenka production duo. Their unique take on progressive trance has already found favour with some of the world's most prominent tastemakers in Above and Beyond, Aly and Fila and John OO Fleming; while landing them releases on JOOF Recordings, UV and Zerothree. Now making their first appearance on Eat My Hat the duo provide an inspired take on 'Pleasure'. Taking a cue from the original Fuenka toughen up the groove with titanium coated kicks and a rippling underbelly. Energetic and foreboding in equal measure, it's fiery rhythms are offset with solemn overlays and pensive arps, before a turbulent break segues into a powerful drop.
Rounding out the release and providing the second and final interpretation of 'Pleasure' are Juan Deminicis and Marcelo Dalessandro. The former hailing from Buenos Aires has been a mainstay of the progressive underground for the better part of a decade. Play and support from the genre's premiere tastemakers Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren and Guy J have led Juan to showcase his music on Lost and Found, Replug and Sudbeat. Also calling Buenos Aires home is Marcelo Dalessandro who began collaborating with Juan in 2018 with a release on Click Records. A contribution to Sudbeat's 'Showcrates' Vol. 5 then followed in March of this year before a well received remix for Sounds Of Earth landed in August. Now capping off the release in style Juan and Marcelo deliver a tasteful take on 'Pleasure'. The duo strip the groove down considerably for a spacious yet punchy vibe that carries a smooth hypnotic energy. Percussive splashes and a poignant arp segue into a driving second act, before ultimately melting down into a pulsating finale. A classy remix from Juan and Marcelo which caps off a top notch offering for Ziger and Eat My Hat Music. Highly recommended.
