Topic: Shawn Mitiska & Sedi - Double Tap (incl. SNR remix) [SILKRL058]
Two standout talents in Trance & Progressive, Shawn Mitiska & Sedi, have joined forces on "Double Tap", a jubilant, peak-hour release, featuring an equally powerful remix by fellow American sensation SNR. Shawn Mitiska is one of the most accomplished artists on our imprint, having written numerous top-charting singles in his illustrious career. Most recently, his remix of Dan & Sam feat. Maxx Hennard's "Walls" appeared on Above & Beyond's "Group Therapy" radio show three weeks in a row. Sedi & SNR have also been featured recently on the show, as well as "Jaytech Music" and Myon & Shane 54's "International Departures".
The Original Mix kicks out of the gate with the main chords, soon reinforced by a stormy groove. Light arps begin to fill out the soundscape as well, followed by one of the most enduring motifs in the track: a series of angelic vocal samples, which truly infuse the track with an ethereal, floating-on-air quality. In the main break, we are unexpectedly met by a poignant piano score, coupled with an equally moving string theme. The latter half of the tune, following a ferocious drop, features all of these beautiful melodic elements in perfect unison.
With a slew of well-supported singles and remixes this past year, including "Beautiful Change" (a collaboration with Rikkaz & Jan Johnston) and "Kumba", as well as numerous DJ events at some of the biggest festivals & clubs in California, it is no wonder that Bay Area-based talent SNR is making waves. His innovative, genre-bending style is on full display in his "Double Tap" remix, which kicks off with a stadium-rocking bassline and layered lead chord sequence. A short mini-break at the quarter turn makes way for a wildly euphoric melody, coupled with the heavenly vox. In the main break, SNR treats us to a short progressive dubstep interlude, followed by an inspired and truly explosive drop.
