Chris Sterio & Alex Y – Different Direction [Another Life Music]

7 min read

Chris Sterio & Alex Y make their Another Life Music debut with 'Different Direction'. The UK based duo have been frequent studio partners since first coming together for a release on Michael & Levan and Stiven Rivic's Mistique Music in June of 2017. Subsequent releases on BC2, Estribo Records and Mystic Carousel Records then solidified the duo as one of the progressive underground's most formidable pairings. Now landing on Another Life Music, Chris and Alex present their latest single alongside remixes from Adnan Jakubovic and Bynomic.

The UK duo have explored a variety of progressive house blueprints across their releases, often times cross pollinating ideas with extreme proficiency. On ‘Different Direction’ we do get something decidedly more nostalgic sounding however. A chugging, old school groove sits at the foundation, moving through classic chord changes as intriguing vocal fragments and melodic overlays drift through the framework. The main break allows the vocal narrative to breathe, captivating at every moment, before a smooth energy bridge ignites an emotive finale.

Making his label debut and providing the first interpretation of 'Different Direction' is Adnan Jakubovic. Hailing from Bosnia and Herzegovina but now based in Germany, Adnan has been a fixture of the progressive underground since first appearing in 2011. Fast forward to present day and he owns an expansive discography highlighted by releases on Balkan Connection, Just Movement and Stellar Fountain. Now making his first appearance on Another Life, Adnan provides a gorgeous rendition of 'Different Direction'. The rhythm and flow of the piece is full of wonderful swing while those beautifully processed sonics keep the hypnotic context of the track moving forward with a momentous pulse. The vocal elements come off slightly more indistinct for a dreamier almost ghostly feel during the break, serene at points, it's a perfectly timed interlude, nicely segueing into a hugely rhythmic final act.

Rounding out the release and providing the second and final interpretation of 'Different Direction' is label boss Bynomic. We last heard from the Swiss artist in September with his well received single 'Misunderstood Technology'. Now continuing what has been a hugely prolific year, the Zurich resident turns in a stellar version of 'Different Direction'. Bringing a decidedly more dramatic feel to the proceedings, Bynomic chops the vocals into sensory saturating fragments while a hopeful arp and sweeping atmospheres continue to elevate mood across the first act. The break is deep in a way, calming even, building effortlessly with muted beats, before a gentle wave of noise carries you into a meditative finale. An excellent remix from Bynomic, rounding out a stellar release for his Another Life Music once again. Highly Recommended.
