    Music Video:

    Michael & Levan and Stiven Rivic spent the early part of their career primarily releasing on their own Mistique Music imprint, but the last 12 months have seen them branch out with releases on Sound Avenue, Mesmeric, and Movement Recordings.

    The trio continue to bring new and inspiring ideas out of the studio, as 'Route 85' might just be their most dancefloor friendly record to date. With an irresistibly funky groove, combined with stylish electronic hooks, the first half of the composition builds some sizable momentum as the main break approaches. Glistening melodic clusters and serene harmonics make up the enchanting drop, which carries some amazing emotional depth. Once the romping groove returns, the atmospheric energy rises to new heights, for an exhilarating climax which goes down as one of Michael, Levan, and Stiven's most accomplished works to date.

    The first remix comes from Perspectives label boss Darin Epsilon. With appearances on Sudbeat, Hope, Renaissance, Perfecto, and Flow all in the last year, the Los Angeles based DJ and producer continues to be one of the most in-demand talents in all of North America. Darin's 'Route 85' interpretation adds a new and even funkier twist on the groove while the hook-heavy rhythms add some monumental bounce to the track. A short break keeps the groove locked and builds some nice anticipation for the tough beats to drop back in. Granular sweeps and dynamic electronics add just the right amount flair for a tasteful second half.

    The final remix is provided by Tom Glass, who is returning to Perspectives for his fourth overall appearance. The Polish producer's intricate melodic sound continues to be a firm favorite of Nick Warren, as he has appeared on Nick's Hope Recordings on nine occasions thus far in his career. Tom's 'Route 85' remix presents a much more techno inspired vibe which carries some amazing musicality with it. Filled with rolling grooves, blissful pads, and energetic piano stabs, Tom has crafted a mix that should more than satisfy all the techno purists out there.
