Rising Russian progressive producer Michael Mashkov teams up with Kazakh talent Tim Iron to deliver Quaresma, a sweeping trance single from two gifted label newcomers. Earlier this year, Michael Mashkov caught our ear with "Alcantara", an uplifting synth number that billows like clouds departing after a storm. The electrifying "Quaresma" unites the creative talents of Mashkov and Iron, showcasing a unique chemistry.

Quaresma begins with a steady beat, upon which raindrops of percussive hits begin to fall. We soon find ourselves in the midst of this storm as bass-y textures swirl into the overcast picture above. Retreating for a pensive and (ultimately) poignant breakdown, the progressive storm then returns, showering us with a steady downpour of blissfully melodic trance keys.

Michael Mashkov's mix offers a slower-paced spin on the original. In place of the punctuated percussion, space-y synths now appear, which extend far into horizon. Midway through the track, our senses are elevated by a vocal rise, leading into a buildup. The heavy synths fill us with wonder as we ponder a cosmic expanse. Ending with the synth chords upon which the track is built, we're slowly lowered back to the ground.
