While trance and progressive house are often very upbeat and uplifting genres, some like them a bit darker. Others, like Ummet Ozcan, like them really dark. Last year he destroyed dancefloors with his massive tune Reboot on Doorn Records, and he’s been leaving quite a wake of destruction in 2012 as well. His latest beast The Box, out now on Reset Recordings, lives up to his foreboding, techy style. The track’s opening establishes a very ominous tone, and once the bassline kicks into gear it becomes impossible to resist the unholy seduction.
The Dutch producer also dealt a twisted remix of Aly & Fila’s official Future Sound of Egypt anthem, 200. While he manages to keep the original’s goosebump-inducing serenity, his version also lays down a slamming drop sure to blow up any club. There is a softer, more melodic side to Ummet Ozcan as well–he shared a bit of it recently with Miami Sundown, a track that accentuates the vibe of relaxing at the beach on a summer day.
