Sound Quelle has risen to the highest ranks of our label roster this year, courtesy of an array of magnificent electronic music releases, ranging in genre from deep house to trance. Featured initially on our "Arrival 02: Destination Indonesia" compilation, "Toscana" is an electrifying anthem by Sound Quelle, in collaboration with Max Meyer. We're thrilled to finally present this track in its full (DJ-friendly) form, alongside two brand new remixes by the wonderful Miroslav Vrlik and Aleksey Sladkov.
The Original Mix kicks off with an aggressive rhythm and rapturous chord sequence. As the energy crescendoes, the layered chords are joined by lush side melodies and ethereal pads. The emotion truly reaches its zenith in the breakdown and subsequent drop, where celestial vocal stabs punctuate an earth-shattering groove.
Miroslav Vrlik, who recently contributed to our "Silk Royal Showcase 05" compilation with the breathtaking "Rhythm Of The Guitar", offers an equally euphoric and exhilarating interpretation. His mix centers on an 1/8 note chord sequence, as well as a variety of atmospheric flourishes, which infuse the mix with a cinematic feel. In the break, an unforgettable new melody is introduced, which continues throughout the drop.
Finally, first-time Silk contributor Aleksey Sladkov makes a tremendous opening statement with his inspired interpretation. Gorgeous midrange "texture" is created through numerous lead layers, coupled with symphonic strings. With thrilling anticipation, we are finally treated to an extraordinarily beautiful climactic theme, which radiates pure joy directly into the listener's soul. Given his obvious talent for peak-hour anthems with intelligence and heart, Sladkov is definitely an artist to watch going forward.
This song gets me right in the feels. I can never think of a word to describe this feeling that certain songs and chord progressions give me, but this definitely gives me that feeling. I Always just want to put on a pair of nice headphone and bop my head to the lovely sounds of Shingo. Maddie Farnsworth
