For two years running, Polish talent Mizar B has made unforgettable contributions to our annual "Only Silk" compilation series. On this year's "Only Silk 04," Max Flyant featured Mizar B's triumphant "Behind That Door" near the end of his continuous mix, to climactic effect. For our latest single, we are thrilled to share a full-length version of Mizar B's original mix, alongside brand new interpretations by celebrated Silk veterans Aeron Aether and Blugazer.
The original version centers on a deep, yet buoyant rhythm section, hypnotic arp line, and lush, after-hours soundscape. A variety of mellifluous themes begin to seep into the mix, including a gorgeous piano theme, and, just as memorable, a gorgeous vocal hook. In the main breakdown, the blissful piano and vocals take center stage, paving the way for a groovy and emotive drop.
American veteran Blugazer offers a dreamlike interpretation, which descends into even deeper terrain than the original. Gorgeous, brain-tickling atmospheric effects permeate his sonic canvas, while subtly hypnotic variations on the original melodies carry the midrange of his composition. After a short respite in the main break, the gentle crescendo of the many atmospheric layers continues onward, allowing the song's soothing arrangement to completely envelop the listener.
Beloved Hungarian veteran Aeron Aether, who remains our label's director of audio mastering, makes his first artistic appearance on our imprint in years; needless to say, we are overjoyed to welcome him back. His remix fittingly is in the niche of progressive breaks, a genre to which he has contributed enormously (since 2008) and has truly helped to define. In the early going, the adrenalin-fueled bassline and beats pack a tremendous punch; at the quarter turn, Aether's (signature) symphony of emotive atmospheric effects make a cinematic entrance. An unconventional, yet exhilarating lead synth cuts through the mix soon thereafter. In the latter half of the composition, these awe-inspiring elements unite, creating a soundscape that is both haunting and rapturous.
