Michael & Levan and Stiven Rivic – Filthy Shadows [Kunai Records]

8 min read

Fresh off their well received 'Blackout' single, Michael and Levan and Stiven Rivic return to their Kunai Records imprint with 'Filthy Shadows'. Released in October, 'Blackout' once again showed the trio's sonic diversity while also receiving remixes from scene legends Lexicon Avenue and Medway. Now following a remix for Robert Babicz and Babiczstyle, Michael, Levan and Stiven land back on Kunai for a new single alongside remixes from Hernan Cattaneo and Soundexile and Yves Eaux.

Often sitting in the creative space between deep and progressive house, the much loved trio sits closer to the former with 'Filthy Shadows'. It's deep, dubby framework is perfectly tailored, adorned with percussive flurries, ghostly effects and subtle shades and tones. Warm bass swells and a modular wave highlight the main break, flowing through emotive chord changes, before it's dramatic allure pulls you back into a meditative state for a spellbinding finale.

The first interpretation of 'Filthy Shadows' is provided by Hernan Cattaneo and Soundexile who are a production trio that sits amongst progressive music's elite guard. Hernan Cattaneo is one of the world's most beloved DJs and his Sudbeat label imprint is widely regarded as one of the best in its field. Soundexile are a Buenos Aires based production duo who have been crafting unique and inspiring electronic music since 2006. The pair are also very accomplished DJs having shared the booth with Hernan Cattaneo, John Digweed, James Zabiela, Dave Seaman and Henry Saiz. Now partnering up with Hernan once again, the trio provide a stunning take on 'Filthy Shadows'. Building hypnotically; punchy beats, exotic percussion and warm bass swells unite for a highly rhythmic, free flowing framework. Smooth chord changes deliver a subtle yet powerful shift in emotive energy, as tranquil arps further saturate your senses as the main break commences. Coming to full fruition, the musical narrative evolves through tasteful modulation, creating a one minute reservoir of melodic clusters, before elegantly peaking and perfectly shifting energy into a smooth final act.

Rounding out the release and providing the second and final interpretation of 'Filthy Shadows' is Yves Eaux. Based in Amsterdam, the Dutch artist has been a fixture of the electronic underground for the better part of two decades. Releases on iconic progressive imprints such as Kasey Taylor's Vapour Recordings to major labels like Blackhole and SPINNIN' highlight his discography. Also a well travelled DJ, the Amsterdam resident has shared the stage with some of the underground's most critically acclaimed DJs such as Sasha, Joris Voorn and Kevin Saunderson. Now making his Kunai Records debut, Yves delivers a rousing take on 'Filthy Shadows' to complete the release in style. Undeniably groovy, it's rhythmic appeal grows subtly, as mountains of bass and layers of percussion unite for an undulating framework. Sweeping effects and astral arps further saturate your pleasure centres, before impassioned overlays add a nostalgic touch during a gorgeous final break. Sitting as a perfect complement to its predecessors it caps off another well rounded release for Kunai Records, who once again bring you some of electronic music's most sought after talent here.
