Onedotsixtwo continues to showcase the finest proper progressive talent through 2020 and welcomes Ian Dillon, the highly respected UK-based DJ/Producer, with his label debut ‘Lucid Dream’ EP. Completing this outstanding package is a remix of ‘Lucid Dream’ from those Argentine masters of groove and emotion, Oliver & Tom, who make a rapid return to onedotsixtwo following their debut ‘Penny’ EP release.
Ian Dillon’s opening ‘Lucid Dream’ is an immediate deep dive into melodic magnificence, its distinctive hypnotic charm riding on a perfectly subtle and wonderfully enticing percussive groove – it is, quite simply, an utterly compelling opening musical statement. His ‘Code Five Red’ is a dirtier proposition – built on a mesmerizing percussion and bass led groove with jostling layers of spellbinding synth and melodic hooks, it is a very different and equally fascinating beast.
Renowned for his highly individual style that fuses dark driving basslines with ethereal melodies, soundscapes and atmospheric ambience, the ‘Lucid Dream’ EP is an exceptional onedotsixtwo debut from Ian Dillon. It is no wonder that the UK-based DJ/Producer has previously released on the likes of Global Underground, Sudbeat, Asymmetric, Soundteller, Pro B tech, Stripped Digital, Modern Agenda and many other respected labels.
Concluding this onedotsixtwo package, Oliver & Tom get creative with their groove dynamics to create a uniquely beautiful interpretation of ‘Lucid Dream’. The duo’s skilled musicianship, a symbiosis that originated in their childhood, having grown up together playing guitar and drums, followed by studying piano and synthesizer, is once again highlighted within their perfectly arranged, heavenly, melody-rich remix.
