Review: When is a remix not a remix or a VIP? When it's a second part. Like this show-stopping update by Cyantific. Taking the anthemic original from last year he's maintained elements of the riff but completely recontextualises it with a different arrangement and a darker, grainier palette. By the time the main riff kicks in on the second drop the dancefloor will be putty in your hands for the rest of the night.
Review: Cyantific is amongst the highest profile artists on glossy Matrix & Futurebound's glossy, club-orientated label Viper Recordings, a man who's sure to always strike an excellent balance between vocal luxury and dancefloor magic. 'Bloodline' is a single taken from his recent album of the same name, and here it's been given the remix treatment by Tantrum Desire and Hybrid Minds. The former injects some serious bass heat with its snarling underpinning of force, whilst Hybrid Minds flip it in their trademark style of rolling vocal-led soul. There's also an instrumental version thrown in for good measure - this EP has something for everyone.
Review: The 80s synth vibes as heard on the Netflix show Stranger Things have taken hold in the funniest places. Here we see Miami Vice style 80s FM synthesisers influence Cynatific, whose "Under The Neon" sounds like Hall & Oates hanging with Kavinsky at a DnB night in Fabric (not something you hear everyday). On the digital flip "Hollywood keeps the pace with some fresh breaks action and harsh bass goodness. The heat is on!
Review: Friends say you're acting crazy? Friends always saying you're the loser? We don't care what you do to them, just be good to Cyantific. Because he's cooked up a serious summer jam right here. Taking a classic Beats International vocal and laying it gracefully over some rising, rippling seashore synths, if this doesn't have your dancefloor singing along then you're playing at the wrong raves. Massive.
Review: Power funk! Cyantific counters his gully gut-puncher "Robotic" with this vibrant, slightly head-bending summer slammer. The synths come on blast so hard and so fast yet so funky, you really won't know what day of the week it is... Or care for that matter. With an equally high impact vocal element looping with similar levels of insistency, this brings Viper's ever-growing new funk hype to a whole new level
