D.J. MacIntyre & Juan Ibanez – Haumea [Clubsonica Records]

9 min read

The latest release from Clubsonica Records finds D.J. MacIntyre returning for a new single alongside Juan Ibanez who makes his label debut. American artist D.J. MacIntyre made his first appearance on the Colombian imprint in May of 2020 with the chart topping 'Conquistador'. As one of Beatport's perennial best-selling artists, the Santa Barbara resident continues to explore progressive music and its related derivatives through releases via Freegrant Music, Droid9 and his own SLC-6 imprint. Hailing from Argentina, Juan Ibanez has been touted as one of his country's rising talents since first appearing in 2019. Support from world class DJ Hernan Cattaneo, along with releases for Antrim's Or Two Strangers have etched Juan's place amongst progressive music's top up and comers. Now continuing their creative partnership, D.J. MacIntyre and Juan Ibanez land on Clubsonica with 'Haumea', alongside remixes from Fabri Lopez and Andre Moret.

Bound by a love for rhythm and groove, the cross-continental duo have crafted one of their most engaging creations to date in 'Haumea'. Pulsating beats, clattering drums and astral sonics begin the seven-minute journey. Senses heighten as striking chord stabs and cosmic arps unite across a swirling, tension filled backdrop. Anticipatory and dramatic, the main break continues to elevate mood with phasing noise, before a powerful drum roll sparks a thumping drop and electric finale.

Returning to the label and providing the first interpretation of 'Haumea' is Fabri Lopez. With two remixes over the last two years, the Argentinean artist has found a comfortable home on the Colombian imprint. With continued support from progressive music's key tastemakers, Fabri is coming off his best and most prolific year to date. Continuing that momentum as the new year begins, Fabri makes a welcome return to Clubsonica with a powerful remix of 'Haumea'. Backed by a full, driving groove, the Villa Mercedes resident has carved out a strong foundation, complemented with fluid pulses and percussive drive. Electric in design and hypnotic in scope, its glassy arps and shimmering overlays slowly descend over the framework, eventually carrying the piece into an emotive break. As the groove strips down, fragmented melodies and impassioned chord changes rise, opening up for moments of reflective warmth, before a gentle rush shifts energy into a heavenly finale.

The final interpretations of 'Haumea' are provided by Andre Moret who returns to the label for his second appearance. Amidst much praise, the Brazilian's Clubsonica debut 'Recover' landed in January of 2020, setting the course for a breakout year. Droid9, Freegrant Music and Mango Alley also played host to Andre's progressive sounds, while Hernan Cattaneo continued with his steadfast support. Now returning to Clubsonica for his first remix, Andre delivers two stunning renditions of 'Haumea'. Energetic and groovy in equal measure, Andre's main mix perfectly characterizes his clean, buoyant production style. A spacious foundation provides an immense sense of space, as lively percussion and playful electronics carry a wonderful dancefloor sensibility. Fragmented vocals and a shimmering arp further the narrative as the first act evolves, ultimately leading to dramatic break and thrilling drop. Meanwhile, Andre's 'Night' Mix stays to true to the main themes from his main mix, while opting for a fuller groove and greater peak time appeal. Building beautifully, kaleidoscopic arps and a wave of sizzling effects unite for a dynamic moment during the break, perfectly foreshadowing a striking final movement. Two stunning renditions from the fast-rising Brazilian artist, rounding out another must have offering from Clubsonica Records.
