Audio Cycles – Ghost [ICONYC]

6 min read

The latest from John Johnson's ICONYC welcomes Audio Cycles back to the label for his debut single alongside a remix from Pole Folder. The Belgian artist first appeared on the US imprint in December of 2019 with a contribution to the label's 'Essentials' Vol. 3 collection. Inspired by the early 80's electronic sound, Audio Cycles has been a figure in Belgian nightlife for well over two decades, both as a DJ and event organizer. Now presenting his first project of 2020 he returns to ICONYC with 'Ghost'.

The original mix leads the release off with a dark yet emotive vibe. Anchored by a tough, punchy groove it’s a narrative of vocal fragments which first captures your imagination. Buzzing synths, nostalgic tones and a wobbly undercurrent make for a powerful first act, before a more distinct melodic theme becomes realized during the main break. Act three finds further vocal additions, bringing elements of soul and emotion to what is a robust, peak time framework.

Rounding out the release and providing the lone interpretation is Pole Folder who makes his label debut. The Belgium artist has a storied career dating back to 2004, highlighted by releases on Bedrock, Sudbeat, Global Underground and his own Reworck imprint. His emotive, free form style is loved throughout the progressive music community and many of his creations are highly regarded by his contemporaries. Now presenting his first remix of 2020, Pole Folder takes 'Ghost' into deeper territory. The tempo shifts down quite a bit here with a nicely contoured groove and dulcet beats laying the foundation. Warm, open and tastefully melodic the first act runs like a fluid storyboard. It’s this widescreen appeal that paves the way for the vocal elements to work their magic, before a glowing break seals it's brilliance. A gorgeous remix from Pole Folder which not only makes for a memorable ICONYC debut but caps off the release on a strong note. Highly recommended.
