Ray Mono is one of the fastest rising names in the game and now he keeps the pressure on with another vital EP, this time on Darius Syrossian's essential Moxy Muzik. It features two of his powerful grooves and kick starts what is set to be a huge year for the artist, while remixers, Seb Zito from fuse and the highly talented Brandub from Argentina complete a fine package.
Syrossian has long been a supporter of Mono, who is someone with a meticulous sound in the studio and plenty of high profile releases behind him on the likes of No Fit State, Pleasure Zone and WHAT NXT? His warm bass, subtle percussion and tripped out grooves are inspired by years as a resident and promoter of legendary Leeds party Mono_Cult and his ever evolving sound comes correct once more here as he continues to get booked around Europe at all the key clubs.
Excellent opener 'Initiated' is a driving track with a physical impact from the well programmed drums and knotted bass. 'Esperanza' became a huge summer anthem for Darius Syrossian at his Amnesia Ibiza residency last summer, so much so, that he was inboxed repeatedly on social media with track id requests of this particular track, with DJs from across the spectrums of house & minimal requesting a copy upfront! This track is a more playful anthem in the making, with classic vocal samples over the slick and sci-fi beats. The slippery metallic perc and icy drums all get deep under your skin and the well treated vocals are set to make huge impact in the sun this summer.
Celebrated Fuse associate Seb Zito then remixes with his stylish dubbed out grooves, taught bass twangs and punchy drum work.
Argentina's Brandub delivers a fantastic remix, with deep bubbling bass & razor sharp kick drums that flow until a short break which features beautiful deep lush chords and pads. This remix blew Space Miami apart during Darius Syrossian's set for Paradise during Miami Music Week last month.
One again then Ray Mono pushes forwards here with another of his devastating new EPs.
