Serge Landar – Distortions [Balkan Connection]

6 min read

The latest release from Balkan Connection finds Serge Lander returning to the label for a new EP. The Ukrainian artist made his debut on the Serbian imprint in January of 2018 with the well received 'Twilight', before going on to release a second EP and a remix in 2019. Now following 2020 releases for Clinique Recordings and Electronic Tree, Serge returns to Balkan Connection with 'Distortions' alongside remixes from Donny Carr and Ed Steele.

This expansive pack begins with the title selection 'Distortion' which comes with a variety of smooth hypnotic concepts. Tough beats and detailed percussion lay the framework for a myriad of meandering synth motifs which combine for a uniquely ethereal journey. The second selection 'The Elements' follows suit with a similar vibe, quite melancholic with it's pensive overlays and muted tones, but with a charged groove the message is sure to get delivered to the dance floor. 'Time' rounds out the originals with an eerie, effects laden narrative highlighted by luminous tones and cascading themes. Colourful and engaging, it makes for a quality late night vibe that should find favour with a broad range of old school progressive DJs.

The lone interpretation of 'The Elements' is provided by Ed Steele who makes his label debut. Releases on Sprout and One Of A Kind have highlighted a strong year for the UK artist who continues that momentum with a great remix here. Adding punch, drive and electricity have worked wonders in bringing Serge's trippy concepts closer to the dance floor. Elastic-like synths highlight the first act, flowing through emotive chord changes and mind bending modulation, before an icy final break resets the groove for a driving finish.

Rounding out the release and providing the lone interpretation of 'Time' is Donny Carr who returns to the label for his second appearance. The US artist first appeared on the Serbian imprint in October of last year with a well received remix of Sam Scheme's 'Mrs. Zateeva'. 2020 has seen the Salt Lake City resident land releases on Juicebox Music and Mango Alley, with a remix on Droid9 also forthcoming. Here he brings his smooth progressive approach to 'Time' with great success. The hypnotic sensibility is high with a smooth yet commanding groove, charged rhythms and fiery percussion uniting for a stellar first act. The main themes get re-worked across the main break, bringing more of a surreal vibe, before the mood shifts once more as the groove drops for a chugging, atmospheric finale. A gorgeous remix from Donny which rounds out another great offering from Balkan Connection. Don't miss it.
