Andre Sobota gets Involved for debut Trident short-player [EP Review]
Brazilian talent Andre Sobota has gracefully held the fine line between progressive house and trance throughout his long yet often overlooked career. Having taken the focus off his drum & bass moniker Bungle with a series of stunning cuts under his own namesake, his first original strike for Trident says everything and more you need to know about the uplifting slow burner and his meticulous hold on the craft.
Stunning orchestral progressions and ascending melodic leads make A-side “Involved” a crucial introductory nod to the intricate composition and overarching theme of quality that follows everything the sparing producer touches. The ethnic undertones and ambient qualities of “Silence Breaker” culminate in a groovy and infectious B-side, one that shamelessly celebrates the synergy between his craft and the vibrant energy of his homeland. There’s a shameful tendency to focus only on the upper echelon of popular progressive. Andre Sobota’s latest and possibly greatest is an indicator that beyond the top tier of popular progressive house assets sits a body of artists waiting to give the sound a new shelf life. If ever you needed evidence of Sobota’s inevitable uprising, the Involved EP offers indisputable proof that the genre has a new leader in the making.
