Sonaris Releases Destiny EP, with InternetDJ.com Remix Competition Andy Line
If you were around InternetDJ.com this past autumn, it was hard to miss the annual remix comeptition which InternetDJ.com hosted with Addictive Vibe Records of Sonaris' original progressive house track Destiny - which peaked at #1 on InternetDJ.com charts in the summer of 2014. Out of the 17 total entries in the running, there could be only one winner. The winner, Andy Line, a Polish producer, stood out in the crowd of remixes with his light, summer dance beat, incorporating a few major elements from the original track. After spending a few months lining things up, and tweaking the mix in the studio, Sonaris and Andy Line released a joint, two-track EP titled "Destiny" on Beatport, Amazon and iTunes.
In the words of Sonaris, "Destiny was inspired in part by the progressive house sounds of 2009, my days of riding my Honda VFR750 in the Colorado Mountains, the movie Drive, and Birdy Nam Nam's amazing tune and video - Defiant Order." The idea was to create something flowing, with a steady build and a driving melody. "I wanted to write something I could listen to on a highway drive in the rain." says Sonaris of this track. The track seems to accomplish that with sudden breakdowns and rolling synth melodies - perhaps best described as "aggressively relaxing" - if that were an actual term.
The track has been positively received overall on iDJ and on Soundcloud, getting over 20,000 plays in a period of a couple of months with an aggregated review score of 8.5/10 on InternetDJ. Destiny is Sonaris' first commercial release in over a year, while he worked on trying new production techniques in 2014.
