10 min read

Ruben Karpentayn's RKP continues a strong summer season by welcoming Gorkiz and Benja Molina to the label for their first ever collaborative single. Hailing from Brazil, Gorkiz has achieved measurable success across his twelve year production career, bringing his progressive minded sound to highly regarded record labels such as Meanwhile, Mango Alley and his own Transensations imprint. Genre tastemakers Nick Warren, Guy J and more have been steadfast supporters along the way, making the Sao Paulo resident one of Brazil's top progressive music exports. Meanwhile, hailing from Spain, Benja Molina first emerged in 2009 on the strength of early tracks such as 'Never The End For Me' and 'The World Of Sound', a pair of floor friendly cuts that would establish a clean progressive sound for the Spaniard. Evolving as an artist over the next decade, the Madrid resident would adopt a deeper, more contemporary approach to his production, eventually leading to projects for Massive Harmony and Soundteller. It was 2023 however which proved to be the most impactful year for Benja, with well-received debuts for Droid9, Freegrant Music, Mango Alley and Univack further elevating his profile. Now, combining their extensive forces for the first time, Gorkiz and Benja make their RKP debut with 'Nuclear', alongside remixes from DJ Ruby and Not Demure & Topo Larocca.

In what is a first time collaboration, Gorkiz and Benja showcase a strong creative synergy on 'Nuclear'. Full of smooth dancefloor energies, the cross-continental duo expertly blends robust kick drums and chunky grooves with flashing percussion and stylized effects. Deconstructed sonics and shapeshifting atmospherics steal the air leading into the break, casting a foggy monochrome over the journey, before a cascading lead emerges amidst a wall of haunted voices and textural bliss for a final act of melody energy.

Making his label debut with the first interpretation of 'Nuclear' is DJ Ruby. As one of Malta's premiere progressive house DJs, Ruby has an ever-growing fanbase that stretches far beyond the island's infamous party scene. Beloved for his impeccable taste and exquisite programming skills, Ruby has travelled the world, delighting music lovers at the most prestigious events. Creamfieds, Love Parade, Ozora, Timewarp and Tomorrowland, amongst others, have all played host to Ruby's keen seen of dancefloor dynamics, where he often finds himself opening for the world's elite acts in Carl Cox, Faithless, John Digweed, Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren, Paul Oakenfold, Sasha, Sven Vath and The Prodigy. Also an accomplished producer with a meticulous resume, leading progressive imprints Deep Down Music, Freegrant Music, Mango Alley and WARPP have all played host to Ruby's infectious club-effective take on the genre, while world class DJs Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Warren have been steadfast with support along the way. Now, fresh off a remix of Kostya Outta's 'Chasing Highs', DJ Ruby makes his RKP debut with a stylish take on 'Nuclear'. Clocking in at a concise six minutes, Ruby finds success with a more robust, dancefloor minded approach. Pulsating grooves and rolling percussion marry beautifully with flickering arps and balmy atmospheres. Hopeful pads and trance inducing melodies take centrestage across the main break, bringing equal amounts of exhilaration and serenity, while looping rhythms and a wave of drums spark a groove-centric drop and swirling melodic finale in fine fashion.

The release concludes with Not Demure & Topo Larocca making their label debut with the second and final interpretation of 'Nuclear'. Born in Argentina and now based in Spain, Not Demure has made impressive strides since first emerging in 2017. In finding a perfect balance between progressive and organic house, the Mar del Plata native would receive support from world class DJs Guy J, Hernan Cattaneo and Sebastien Leger, while also showcasing his music via Mango Alley, Meanwhile, Univack and WARPP, amongst others. Meanwhile, hailing from Argentina and armed with decades of DJ experience is Topa Larocca. The Buenos Aires resident has shared the booth with a bevy of top international DJs, most notably Danny Howells, Dave Seaman, Guy Mantzur, Henry Saiz and Mariano Mellino. Also an accomplished producer, Topa's timeless progressive sound has found a home on Magnitude Recordings, Traful and We Are Connected. Now, Not Demure & Topo Larocca masterfully synthesize their talents for the first time, making their RKP debut with an inspired rendition of 'Nuclear'. Bringing a progressive state of mind, the duo carefully balances the themes from the original with their own club-effective progressive fusion. Timely effects and evolving atmospheres steal the air atop thunderous beats and commanding grooves; while a break of emotive bass swells and deconstructed vocals seals what is the ultimate dance floor bomb to round out the release.
