Premiere: John Monkman – Enhancer
John Monkman‘s musical path has been a winding one that’s seen him touching on everything from ethereal Anjunadeep-level progressive, to big house tunes, to raunchier cuts. As he’s traveled the depths of his musicality, his sonic vision soon aligned with the Maceo Plex/Ellum camp — and has officially materialized into an EP on the imprint aptly titled Tune In, Turn On.
Its B-side, “Enhancer,” is a particularly blistering number, designed to cause tension on the dancefloor. Pitched-up arpeggios are strung together by acidic synthesizers, simultaneously catalyzing goosebumps celestial mental imagery. Meanwhile, growling notes on the low-end and driving vocal clips add a hint of shadow to the finished product, making for an intense and well-balanced track that heats up the speakers.
“Enhance” is set for a November 16 release. Pre-order a copy here.
