Kamilo Sanclemente & Andre Moret – Acacias [Balkan Connection]

0 second read

Balkan Connection unveils one of the label's biggest releases to date from Kamilo Sanclemente & Andre Moret. Hailing from Colombia and Brazil respectively this is a first time collaboration from the duo. Kamilo needs little introduction to seasoned progressive music fans. The Cali resident has been a favourite of Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Warren for some time. Meanwhile Andre, while early on in his career has already found a home on Soundteller Records and Tenampa Recordings. The duo's first ever collaborations hold much promise and come alongside heavyweight remixes from Petar Dundov and Arnas D.

Beginning with the title track, Kamilo and Andre craft a pure progressive cut with smooth lines and subtle emotive leanings. Warm and perfectly contoured, the groove flows beautifully as dulcet tones and wispy atmospherics build a melodic narrative. Clustered claps and angelic pads initiate a stripped down second act where emotional tension rises before astral waves melt down to a shimmering sizzle, perfectly setting up a euphoric build and tasteful drop. The companion piece `Nino`follows a similar sonic ethos with playful, rhythmic tones and a warm, joyous glow throughout. Perhaps a touch more heartfelt than it`s predecessor, the main break while sparse proves to be the perfect prelude to a third act of smooth chord changes and reflective melodies that really hit the spot.

Two all-star remixers round out the release with equally stunning takes on the lead piece 'Acacias' beginning with Petar Dundov. The Croatian artist is one of the most storied electronic music producers of the last 20 years, Petar’s music stretches sonic boundaries like almost no one else. His inimitable style is marked with timeless qualities and has long been a favourite of legendary DJs John Digweed, Laurent Garnier and Sven Vath. Seemingly growing closer to the progressive house scene in recent years Petar now lands on Balkan Connection with a gorgeous rendition of 'Acacias'. The storyboard from the original has been reinvented and incredibly well conveyed which should prove quite engaging both from a listening and club perspective. Groovy and rhythmic in equal measure it builds with an effortless glide into a goosebump inducing finale with the mods intensifying and layers of blissful textures pushing the vibe higher.

Rounding out the release is Arnas D who makes his Balkan Connection debut here. The Lithuanian producer has long been one of his country’s most beloved electronic music artists. His dynamic club grooves have found favor with many world-class DJs over the years, with Sasha and Nick Warren being two of his biggest supporters. It's been almost nine months since we last heard from Arnas, so this remix is certainly a welcome surprise for his fans and it does not disappoint. The tempo comes down for a slighter deeper vibe which complements the previous two versions quite nicely. Thick, chunky and full of rugged character the groove chugs along with a powerful, hip swinging sway. Indistinct vocals add an air of intrigue while exotic drums and timely drops make for a dynamic eight minute journey. Not sure where Arnas has been the last little while but this is a stunning remix so let's hope there is more new music on the way soon. It rounds out one of Balkan Connection's biggest releases ever, both on paper and for a seasoned ear. Highly recommended.
