Hazem Beltagui based out of France these days, is set to make another strong push on Nueva and in the music industry in general as he continues to push the envelope on progressive and trance blending them into two of the finest tracks we’ve had the pleasure of listening to. Along with interpretations from rising prog talents Gunn & Snad, Aji Mon Nair and Nueva remix contest winner Nick Tomassetti.
H4Z3 is one of those tracks when you hear it, you just want to put on repeat and close your eyes. A haunting melody and rolling base line make for one fantastic journey in sound. Nick Tomassetti chips in with his take in a more amped up but stripped down version, really showcasing the memorable melody from the Original.
The B-Side of this EP ‘Sunrise’, already featured on Ad Brown’s ‘From The Record Bag: London’ compilation, brings a more laid back beach feel with piano plucks and off-in-the-distance synth, layered just perfectly and when all culminates together: perfection. We tasked Aji Mon Nair with a remix as he’s been on the rise recently and really puts his best foot forward with a more modern approach bringing some depth and edge to the his mix. New comers to Nueva, Gunn & Snad are separated by oceans but have a chemistry between them that is quite noticeable. There mix is just pure fun, bringing a little more sunshine to the sunrise and a great interlude breakdown, complete with old school electronic piano sounds!
