Let’s kick things off on the new site with a bang, shall we? Divini & Warning have been making quite a splash on Armada’s new Energetic Sounds imprint with recent releases like Just A Sound, but the duo, partially made up of Artento Divini, knocked it out of the park with their latest–The Housebeat.
There are two versions of The Housebeat on offer, and both are destructive in their own right. The original mix is slightly more uplifting in vibe, with a sparkling breakdown to boot, but the drop is a low hoover-filled electro ball of energy. My favorite of the two is the “Hard Edit,” which basically opens the floodgate for a sea of huge, techy synths, rolling snares, and a breakdown that slows down to 100bpm–a tempo rarely breached in the trance world. I imagine they’ll find themselves in the sets of Markus Schulz and W&W quite soon. The Housebeat is out on Beatport now.
