Peter Illias - Summer Vibes (Da Funk's Sommernachtstraum Rework) [Silk Textures] by peter.illias published on 2013/07/23 18:59:57 +0000 Silk Textures welcomes Slovak phenom Peter Illias, a longstanding contributor to label affiliates Silk Royal and Arrival. Peter has come into his own this past year, with radio support by Above & Beyond, Gareth Emery, and various other leading progressive and trance artists. He now showcases his "deeper" side with "Summer Vibes", which also includes standout remixes by genre veterans Da Funk and Forteba. The Original Mix is a gorgeous slice of atmospheric and sexy late-night house music. There are various vocal effects and crystalline melodies, which paint an elaborate soundscape. The steady rhythm and fluttering synths truly transport the listener to the heights of a summer holiday. On remix detail, we are proud to welcome Swiss legend Da Funk, who not only has worked as a celebrated producer-DJ for nearly two decades, but who also is the founder of the acclaimed Acryl Music imprint. His "Sommernachtstraum Rework" is a vintage deep cut, which highlights the provocative female vocal elements and radiant synths of the original. Finally, Hungarian talent Forteba, who is perhaps best know as 1/2 of the accomplished progressive house duo Colourblock (with Lank), offers a groovy and jazz-influenced rendering. One of the most striking elements is the resonant and funky bass, which gives this interpretation a bit more dancefloor appeal, especially when combined with the snappy percussion.
