Alter Ego Progressive
November 27, 2017
Providing the treasure for release 282 on Alter Ego Progressive is label new boy Kevin Cheung aka Kepik, with his double headed "Mantra & Drive" "Mantra" is an energy charged driven by a crunching bassline and an insanely catchy theme. Boasting a terrific tribal led breakdown with lots of worldly atmospherics, a stunningly warm and unforgettable top line which teases before sliding into a celestial climax. Hats off to the Kevin for this pure melodic rapture. "Drive" is a glittering journey through progressive symphony that draws you in from the first bar with glitchy rhythmic undertones, chunky beats and big room atmospherics. The breakdown makes its presence introducing itself with real beauty, with a stunning vocal lead them, rich and seductive pianos lull along with angelic atmospherics, taking you through layers of golden dreamy sonic clouds before letting rip into one hell of a climax. Outstanding debut release from Kepik.
