With ‘Deer Friends’ the Czech/Slovak partnership of Shato & Paul Rockseek brought their thematically cooler blend of progressive trance to VANDIT’s doors last year. With the track establishing itself as a firm favourite in many a DJs end of year chart, the pair are now primed, ready and set to do it all again with their follow-up, ‘Whispering’.
Courtesy of Alex M.O.R.P.H., Maarten de Jong, Claudia Cazacu and others, the latter months of 2013 saw VANDIT Records direct a non-stop convoy of peak-time master-blasters at the big rooms. Into the New Year, Berlin’s finest are momentarily changing the gears, bringing some laidback trance refinement to their soundsheet.
With its filtered percussive loops, drop-down tempo and long held strings, ‘Whispering’ cultivates cultured, atmospheric mood-ish, cool at every turn. Developing a mellow, almost filmic drama to its early make up, SHato and Paul introduce forever-panning, echoing and shifting FX and an ethereal, extraordinary once heard, not soon forgotten vocal. Whisper it – SHato & Paul have delivered the ‘Deer Friends’ beater!
