Melodic House & Techno
With their brand new 'Evidence EP' we welcome German duo Stil & Bense to the label. Known for their deep techno vibes, house infused disco productions and releases on well-known entities like Poesie Musik & Sasha Braemer's WHATIPLAY, the duo land on ICONYC with their debut 'Evidence EP'.
The duo's latest outing shows maturity and musical development, as we kick off procedures with the title track 'Evidence'. The track opens with all the right notes, as the expressive, melodic techno influenced track grabs you from the word go, interspersing with roomy glowing vibes and filtered stabs, driving leads culminating into an energetic drop to round off this brilliant underground crowd pleaser, with its understated yet driving bassline powering the groove along. Stil & Bense manage to keep the energy up, subtlety allowing the driving feel to shine thru over the many layers and textures to create a beautiful soundscape.
Next up we have a remix courtesy of German-Canadian duo TH;EN known for their polished and intricate sound profiling. They keep the ethereal theme of the original alive, as the pulsating bass powers along, before its drum fills and general warmth all combine to do the talking. Like something from yesteryear, yet sounding fresh and upfront - This transcendent touch up takes the energy levels up a notch, but increases the melancholy with stripped back and lucid elements at the same time, before the luscious pads grace the rework changing the vibe and creating a blanket of warmth that wraps around the effected groove.
Last but not least, the guys drop the equally stunning 'Milky Way'. The track kicks things off nicely with its deep vibes shining through as we meander effortlessly through club inspired melodies, while the sultry chords and vocal samples sit wonderfully on top adding an extra layer of depth. The track continues to build on a solid foundation of tough percussive grooves and bass-lines. 'Milky Way' is an accomplished piece of work that highlights, that Stil & Bense are true masters of their craft.
With 'Evidence', Stil & Bense really show that there're no boundaries, as this beautiful melodic gem guides you to a deep warm groove laden, melodic hug of a release that will leave you with many smile induced moments! All the ingredients are there for another instant ICONYC classic. Don't miss out on this marvelous release. Stil & Bense's 'Evidence EP' sees a worldwide release on March 18th, 2019!
