RIGOONI – When Midnight Comes [Higher States]

6 min read

Roger Martinez's Higher States continues a great year by welcoming RIGOONI to the label for his debut single. Hailing from São Paulo, Vinícius Souza aka RIGOONI has been rising out of Brazil's burgeoning electronic music underground. 2019 was highlighted by an appearance on Nick Warren's Balance compilation, setting the stage nicely for a 2020 release on the legendary DJ's The Soundgarden imprint. Subsequent offerings courtesy of MNL, One Of A Kind and Strangers Beats have made for a breakout year. Now fresh off a remix for Luka Sambe's 'Alive Is The Meaning', the Brazilian artist debuts on Higher States with 'When Midnight Comes', alongside a remix from Alex O'Rion.

Often sitting in the creative space between organic and progressive house, RIGOONI once again amalgamates those sensibilities on 'When Midnight Comes'. Anchored by a warm, spacious groove, its atmospheric scope comes up quickly, with glowing overlays and blissful swells layering a bed of effervescent percussion. Haunting vocal fragments marry harmonic drifts across the first act, eventually segueing into the main break. A more distinct musical narrative sits at the heart of the centrepiece, as rustic plucks and piano cascades play off each other wonderfully, resonating against a backdrop of glowing electronics, before the groove drops for a reflective finale.

Returning to the label and providing the lone interpretation of 'When Midnight Comes' is Alex O'Rion. Having made his Higher States debut in June of this year with two well received Antrim collaborations, the Dutch artist also lays claim to releases on Hernan Cattaneo's Sudbeat Music and Nick Warren's Hope Recordings. Now fresh off the release of his 'The Long Walk' EP for Cid Inc's Replug Records, Alex lands back on Higher States for his first remix. Taking a cue from the original while adding a progressive state of mind, Alex crafts a perfect complement to its predecessor. Atop a well contoured foundation comes rolling rhythms and layers of striking percussion. A unique contrast of character and groove eventually reveals fragmented melodies and harmonic overlays, blanketing the pulsating framework for goosebump worthy moments. A bed of percussive delays trails across the main break, subtly building tension as hazy motifs unite for an exhilarating final movement. A stunning remix from Alex once again, which rounds out a superb Higher States debut for RIGOONI. Highly recommended.
