onedotsixtwo’s final release of 2020 comes from one of the labels favourite contributors, Colombia’s progressive superstar, Kamilo Sanclemente, in a joint production with another stalwart of Colombia’s electronic music scene, Mauro Aguirre. This is not the pair’s first collaboration. They have worked together on a number of originals and remixes over the past few years including offerings on Hope Recordings, Manual Music, and most recently Proton.
Separately Kamilo Sanclemente has had another a huge year with his profile on the global progressive scene going from strength to strength due to a on-going supply of releases featuring his trademark progressive sound, which has been constantly championed by the major players, and topped off by his Urania, his recent release on The Soundgarden, that has taken the charts by storm.
Hallucinations is a beast of a track which takes no prisoners from the off. A tight kick and an elastic bassline interspersed with reverberating fx leads into a scorching first drop, which in turn releases a mesmerising lead synth line. Complex fx continue to ebb and flow, stabbing through the rumbling lead bass. As the main break reaches it’s powerful crescendo a hauntingly beautiful dual Indian vocal appears and takes the track into full orbit. As has been shown on their previous collaborations Kamilo and Mauro are a combo to be reckoned with.
On remix duties are Argentina’s Ezequiel Anile and Nicolas Petracca, AKA EANP, who have crafted Hallucinations into a deep brooding dark room progressive groover with a nod to the old school, and reminiscent of the sound of the early progressive pioneers like Morel. Ezequiel and Nicolas have been working together since 2014 as EANP. They debuted on onedotsixtwo early in 2020 with their outstanding three track Sunlights EP, and have released a steady stream of impeccable progressive gems on labels such as Serendeep, Droid9, Or Two Strangers and Balkan Connection during 2020 alone.
onedotsixtwo are saying goodbye to 2020 with a bang and looking ahead to a less challenging year in 2021 where we can all get back to the place we love the most, our hallowed dancefloors.
