May ’16 Review and Mike Griego

In this episode I conduct a review of the best tracks released in May of 2016.  I also feature the debut release on microCastle from Mike Griego, an Argentinian producer.  I play the original version of the title track, Idioglossia in Set 3, and the Bog Remix of that track in Set 2.  May ’16 Review and Mike Griego

The title track ‘Idioglossia’ quickly builds a really unique, distinctive groove, with rich percussive elements meeting a catchy little hook and a pulsing bassline, and Mike Griego weaves in even subtler melodies as the track heads into the trippy, abstract breakdown, which sets a powerful, head-spinning second half. The remix of ‘Idioglossia’ comes from Bedrock’s BOg,... His version of the track borrows the warmth from Mike Griego’s original, while transforming the vibe with restrained percussion, sparse but heavy bass tones, and shimmering, layered rippling melodies, and distinctive vocal samples. The middle sequence throws in some dreamier synths, which add additional texture as the remix its lovely finale.

A new microCastle release is always worth hearing, and Mike Griego delivers the goods here as he always does. The highlight for my money, though, is BOg’s delightful remix of ‘Idioglossia’, which will further cement his reputation amongst fans of melodic and intelligent music sitting on the boundary between progressive house and techno.

The rest of the show is dominated evenly by Techno, Deep House, and Chill Out tracks.
