Floating Groove – Verana Release
Hailing out of Stettin, Poland, DJ and producer duo Dawid Korniak and Michael Modoolar make up Floating Groove and here they debut on Monog with the superb Verana EP. The guys got together in 2015 and started to think about their musical direction and performance with their first release coming on Mexican imprint Elite Records at the start of 2016. A real dynamic duo who are shaping up to be pretty important in the world of electronic music, definitely ones to watch for the future.
Consciens intros with a nicely toned kick drum alongside a sharp clap. Rhythmic percussions soon follow with a shuffling hat taking the lead and getting the feet tapping. A hypnotic arpeggio fades in becoming a big focus in the sound as a probing bassline ramps up the deep groove. The break reveals a captivatingly cosmic vibe that delivers ethereal melodies before the sounds combine once more for the duration. An eclectic slice of deep tech house that will not disappoint.
Verana sets out with a cool arrangement of percussions that are joined by a nice and punchy kick drum. A super tight drum section delivers a solid rhythmic flow which is complimented with mysterious whispering vocals. Stabby house chords create cool textures as a deep underground floating chord pad swells throughout the track. The track captivates as the layers build and will make the perfect fodder for any late night set, not to be missed.
Berlin based DJ and producer Patryk Molinari steps up for remix duties and gives Verana his 303 Treatment. Patryk knew electronic music would be a big part of his life from an early age. His late teenage years would become the moment he realised this passion was so strong and he started to produce his own music. He was influenced by the Big Beat scene but soon discovered house music opting for the deeper shades within the genre. He has released a plethora of top notch cuts across various labels in the last several years and shows no signs of letting up, definitely an artist to keep tabs on. As you’d expect from the remix title we’re treated to a healthy dose of vintage 303 acid. A chunky kick drum leads the way as a meandering acid line coasts in the background over a superb thick bass. Cool FX, gated synths and swirling pads add colourful textures but it’s the acid that gets under your skin giving this track a unique flavour. Top notch stuff you do not want to miss.
