Mazai & Olesia Bond mark their debut on ICONYC with their brand new single. The duo delivers a slice of smooth summer vibes titled 'Illusion'. The track kicks things off nicely with its melancholic moodiness shining through as we meander effortlessly through moody melodies, while the driving groove sits wonderfully on top adding an extra layer of depth. CJ Peeton who is very much famed for his intricate and refined productions, is first up. His rework creates tension from the word go, as the atmospheric vibe subtly keeps you moving with warm tinkling sounds, a smooth edge and some nicely effected sounding pieces. We basically have the formula for a bit of a monumental outing. The sparseness is the key here, as this restrained gem works its magic while it plays away, creating a warm glow, creating an air of sophistication. "Essential stuff!" Next up is Blue Amazon, known for his polished sound, who keeps the ethereal theme of the original alive, as the pulsating bass powers along, before the kicking drums and general groove all combine to do the talking. Like something from yesteryear, yet sounding fresh - This mystical 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 driving percussion grace the rework changing the vibe and creating a blanket of kick ass that wraps around the effected groove. Last but not least we have a remix courtesy of Kiz Pattison who delivers a trademark driving prog mix with infectious chords, intense drums and smooth breakdown. It's all about the groove; progressive vibes and the melancholic beats that are working their magic around Kiz's wonderfully arranged keys that create an irresistible rhythm while clever chords take the mind on a trip. A truly beautiful cultivated rework. All the ingredients are there for another instant ICONYC classic. Don't miss out on this marvellous release. Mazai & Olesia Bond's 'Illusion sees a worldwide release on July 17th, 2017.
