meHiLove has been a cherished contributor to progressive since the very beginning of this decade; in fact, his first offering to our imprint was back in June 2011. We are delighted to present a new two-track EP by the Ukrainian melodic maestro.
The release kicks off with "Solace," which Max Flyant initially teased on his "Only Silk 04" mix last year. Throughout the composition, a light, retro-tinged bassline is punctuated by relaxing vocal stabs, as well as a heavily filtered, yet sunny piano theme, which eventually unfurls. Overall, as the track title implies, the main melodic and atmospheric themes conspire to create a serene and deeply comforting ambience. If the universal greeting of "good morning" were to be accompanied by a soundtrack, this song would prove a worthy candidate.
The gorgeous B-side, "Airy," finds meHiLove in vintage form. Specifically, lush melodies, infected with a just a hint of melancholy, pour over the listener, as a slightly more uptempo progressive house groove begins to take shape and slowly crescendo. In the main break, a soothing piano theme is introduced, which leads into the drop (alongside a delicious arpeggio), very much to hypnotic effect.
