Navar – Le Paradigme EP
Guy J’s Lost & Found imprint has remained a welcome addition to the underground skyline since its inception back 2012. Last found flaunting the talents of Secret Cinema and Roger Martinez, the label’s eighth release offers Holland’s Navar a well-deserved debut off the heels of his remix for Steffie Ditzel earlier this month. For the most part, “Le Paradigme” offers a dreamy movement of melodic builds and distant rhythmic swells, embodying the more devout progressive flavors that have kept the genres name sacred of late. Hernan Catteno and Argentinian duo Soundexile then take the reigns for a double helping of remix duties, starting deep and rhythmically refined and then climaxing with an ambient mix focused solely on the original’s raw melodic maneuvers. The package keeps Lost & Found in the cutting-edge corner of global club land whilst elevating Navar as a hopeful mark of virtue to progressive house’s muddily attributed handle.
