about

Russian artist Michael Witness is a Silk veteran, who most recently remixed Jason Bradberry's acclaimed release "Autumn". This EP, entitled "Crystal Nights", features two originals and three remixes. Unique panned drum effects and a lovely chilled atmosphere introduce the title track, %u201CCrystal Night%u201D, followed by a breakbeat with subtle piano stabs. A delayed pluck theme takes over later on, and hereby enhances the melodic levels of the track. Smooth pad lines and mesmerizing sound effects introduce the original mix of "18 Days", and the lush atmosphere extends throughout the track. A great, chilled beat with crisp percussion lines appears later on, and even more sweeping pad lines are placed in the mix to help build the energy. First remix of "Crystal Night" is from Hugo Gerritse from the Netherlands; the track leads with a strong breakbeat with lush background melodies and effects, and very smooth pad lines gradually appear underneath. Deep rhodes stabs also make their entrance, resulting in a stunning blend of melodies. Russian producer Domestic Technology (better known as Silk veteran Invisible Sounds), delivers a deep house remix of "Crystal Night" with lots of fascinating instruments and melodies. A frisky trumpet, in particular, works quite well with the rhodes stabs and bassline. Furthermore, many new percussion lines are added to enhance the funkiness of the track. Finalizing this package, we have a remix of "18 Days" by Parisian artist Faskil, whose beat and bassline provide a groovy and progressive take on the original. Various small effects around the track create an interesting and enjoyable soundscape, as well as the additional melodies and tweaks of the percussion elements.
