Aleksey Yakovlev is deservingly considered a rising star in the progressive house scene. This remarkable Russian talent has released remixes on Arrival and Silk Digital, but also Nueva Digital and Eternal in recent months. Now Arrival presents his track "Jacqueline", along with 2 remixes. The original mix starts off with a firm beat with frisky percussion elements, and slowly a lush synth riff is introduced as well. Numerous background melodies enrich the atmosphere, and the break showcases even more new harmonies. The combination of the various riffs continues after the break, including an overall elevation of the energy level of the track. Matao, a name we have seen a few times already on Silk Music, begins his remix with a smooth beat and a groovy bassline unde! rneath. Intriguing vocal stabs and interesting synth sweeps are put into play, and a lush 303 line lurks below. The melodic content of the song is put to display in the enjoyable break, and the addition of a breakbeat contributes with more texture. The final remix comes from Aknael & Bekeela, a project created by two promising producers from the Republic of Moldova. A smooth synth riff is quickly established, and a poignant beat follows soon thereafter. A hypnotizing, gated vocal sample emerges near the break, and the rhythmic main synth riff continues at full throttle afterwards.
