To close out a wonderful 2018 on high note we welcome back the talented Canadian producer Las Von to ICONYC with his latest smash 'Saudade'. With outstanding releases on labels like Mango Alley, Somatic, Mogador and Krafted Underground to name a few, he developed a unique style; a dynamic, groovy, deep and hypnotic fusion of genres that perfectly fits in any kind of club or open-air festival. Las Von has seen a rise to fame in 2018 thru the regular output of quality productions, especially his work in collaboration with the other rising stars of 2018; Germany's TH;EN.

On his first solo outing on ICONYC, Las Von treats us to the spectacular 'Saudade'. A grooving deep prog house roller, fusing gentle chord stabs with subtle string ensembles and clinical percussion. The beautiful driving lead line of 'Saudade' pared with Las Von's trademark beat manipulation culminates into a club inspired piece of house music for the ages. 'Saudade' is a perfect piece of music for sun kissed winter evenings and to get you in the mood for a big night out.

Adding to our growing list of all-star remixes, we welcome back Australian Jamie Stevens who needs no introduction and knows a thing or two when it comes to mind blowing reworks: Jamie turned 'Saudade' into an irresistible track like only he can by using the original elements on offer with perfection. Jamie layers more melodies and effects, whilst upping the flow with cleverly programmed percussion and his trademark FX elements, without destroying the essence of the original. His rework deserves to be branded 'essential' in any sense of the word.

Last but not least, we are proud to have another big hitter on remix duty. German duo Wellenrausch known for their works on Afterglow, Black Hole and Coldharbour amongst others, present a musical affirmation, unified by a deep kick drum and atmospheric emotion. Their remix is a concoction of warm, deep bass grooves, swirling pads, textured layers and stunning effects. Clever synth phrases complete the picture and create a rounded worked piece of art to see out their remix in style.

Las Von's first solo outing on ICONYC is an accomplished piece of work that highlights, that he is fast becoming a true master of his craft. With the talent on offer, ICONYC once again reaffirm their status as one of the leading lights in the progressive underground. Las Von's 'Saudade' sees a worldwide release on December 17th, 2018 exclusively via ICONYC & Beatport. Not to be missed!
