Topic: Proton GT 01 [PROTON0091]
Proton presents a new series called "Proton GT" that will feature only the most talented and best-selling producers on the label. The first release comes from two well-known progressive artists: Chris Nemmo and Cid Inc, who are both Beatport Progressive House top 100 best-sellers. Greece & UK resident Chris Nemmo's tracks have been released on labels such as Klik, Restart, Tilth, and Vapourise, and DJ support includes Kosmas Epsilon, Miss Nine, and Roger Martinez among others. Finnish Cid Inc's tracks have also had great DJ support, including Francesco Pico, Paul Keeley, Derek Howell, and Jaytech, and his tracks have been released on labels including Balkan Connection (a Proton sublabel), Dyami, Global Underground, and Inkfish.
Chris Nemmo's "Randomizer" features an incredibly funky bassline that works really well with the just as funky and groovy beat. Distinct and mesmerizing synth lines with cool melodies along with deep stabs constitute a unique, melodic groove with great hit potential; perfect to get the dance floor moving.
"Shake Before Use" from Cid Inc is a little more deep and pounding; the beat is incredibly strong, and the rolling bassline underneath evolves into a techy monster that adds a great amount of energy to the track. The sidechained pads and various euphoric synth layers are just as energetic and goose bump generating, and new layers just keep appearing. With this energy, this is great as a peak-hour track.
