Dave Hard – Palilula

Dave Hard - Palilula


The music-savvy Bernese Dave Hard delivers a musically focused piece of work on Sirion Records with his EP Palilula. The lightness of a past summer can be felt here as well as the certain melancholy of an approaching autumn. The three tracks were also reinterpreted and remixed by Dole & Kom, Markus Homm, Mobi, Balance and the Sirionaut Bird. The trance-infused house track "Palilula" creates a bittersweet yet hands-up high atmosphere through pads, chords and bars. Markus Homm created an airy light remix one could listen to in an endless loop. Dole & Kom use skillful melody changes, suspense arches and an additional Acid-inspired synth line for their interpretation. Goose bumps on the dancefloor are guaranteed. "Mallet Dreams" announcing fall with filigree mallets, chords and pads. Yet with a certain drive he still feeds on the energy of summer. You'll want to listen to this one wrapped in a warm blanket, watching the foggy sunrise at the after hour of an open air at the lake. The Balance Remix a bit of a quieter, dubbier version. The downtempo affine number shines with a warm bassline and slightly reduced mallets. Pads which on the one hand contain a choral dress and on the other hand a rhythmic note harmonize perfectly with a static kickdrum and warm subbass in "The Soul". A nice rounding off of the whole EP. Mobi reinterprets the track completely and puts on a gloomy almost dystopian atmosphere, which shines through a rougher bassline. Sirion's Bird reduces the original track to its trance-like aspect, adds more drive and rhythm, and voil it's complete.

Groovy und verspielt. Ich mag das Bongo-Ding - Track 2 -
direkt auf Anhieb. Und The Soul (Mob Remix) - dark und angedünstet!
