Genix & Las Salinas – Arcadia
With their last collaboration bringing substantial success (inc. rave press reviews from Mixmag & DJ Mag and deck & radio support from a near A-to-Z of the scene’s heaviest hitting spinners), a Genix/Las Salinas return match was less ‘a possible’ and far more a certainty… And without further ado, here it is!
Las Salinas’ Israel Bicher and Shaulli Harrari have gotten back studio-side with tech-trance don Genix for the ‘Say Another What’ sequel. Follow-up it may be, but artistic re-tread it is far from, as the trio hit new stylistic paths with ‘Arcadia’.
Seizing on the season, ‘Arcadia’ may be cool of mind (and tempo), but thematically and thermally it’s tropically hot, hot… HOT! With its siren-song female vocals and wistfully catchy, Ibiza-contemplating sub-riffs, it decisively sets out the summertime mood. The drop brings dramatic pianoforte and then, with an emphatic gearshift, ‘Arcadia’s big pads deliver its conclusive, rafter-raising mainline.
Relative to ‘Say Another What’, DJ Mag says ‘Arcadia’ is: “emphatically more beautiful with its beguiling, drifting vocals and melodic thrall” and giving it 8/10, that “the production quality” is “pristine” and “truly ‘wraparound’ stuff”.
‘Arcadia’ is out July 17th.
