Tomek – Electric Serenade [RKP]

8 min read

Presenting their fourth release, Ruben Karapetyan's RKP imprint welcomes Tomek to the label for his debut single. Hailing from Hungary, Tamás Bolye aka Tomek has been a fixture of the electronic underground for well over a decade. Beginning as a DJ and event organizer, Tomek would release his first production in 2009, establishing a melodic progressive sound which would lead him to project's for John OO Fleming's JOOF Recordings, Balkan Connection,ICONYC NOIR, PHW Elements and Stellar Fountain, the latter of which would operate as his primary home for the next decade. Increasingly choosy with his releases in recent years, Tomek now adds RKP to his resume with his first original production of 2023 'Electric Serenade', alongside remixes from Forty Cats and Luca Abayan.

As the progressive grooves and swaying rhythms of the Original Mix unfold, it's clear that Tomek's craft must be taken to heart. Renowned for his trance-inspired melodies, the Gyor resident opts for a deeper approach here, working placid pads and soulful motifs over warm grooves and flickering percussive arrangements. Building patiently across the first movement, its emotive chord changes and heartfelt harmonies marry beautifully during a transcendent break, before layers of jangly hooks and wind-swept sonics cue a gorgeous drop and glowing finale.

Making her label debut with the first interpretation of 'Electric Serenade' is Forty Cats. With well over a decade's worth of DJ experience, Russian artist Christina Gavrilova aka Forty Cats has been a fixture of her country's nightlife, sharing the stage with Jody Wisternoff, Nick Warren, Yotto, Dave Seaman and more. Christina's production breakthrough would come shortly thereafter, with a debut on Lane 8's This Never Happened, a release which would make her an in demand remixer and rising progressive house phenom. Now, four years on and Forty Cats is regarded as one of her country's premiere electronic music artists, with standout discography credits for Juicebox Music, Sound Avenue,The Soundgarden, Sudbeat Music, Mango Alley and WARPP. Always a creative remixer, Forty Cats now makes her RKP debut with a stunning rendition of 'Electric Serenade'. Focusing on a slightly darker monochrome, the Moscow resident takes greater aim at the dancefloor for what results in a heady eight-minute journey. Rebounding rhythms and deep chugging basslines set the course for snatches of flickering percussion and shapeshifting effects. Looking to bring a surreal yet emotive response, the main break shifts the narrative through moody pads and acid-like lines, before a fragmented didgeridoo cues a stripped back drop and meditative finale, one which an astute dancefloor will certainly appreciate.

The release concludes with Luca Abayan also making his label debut with the second and final interpretation of 'Electric Serenade'. Hailing from Argentina, Luca has emerged as new talent in his country's rich pool of progressive house producers. Although just a year into his journey as producer, the Rosario resident has already amassed an impressive discography, notching releases via Arcedian, Droid9 and Magnitude Recordings. Fresh off a well received remix of 'It's Just a Dream' by Mind Tourist, Luca now debuts on RKP with a spirited take on 'Electric Serenade'. Beginning with a buoyant kick and deep chugging groove, the Argentinean artist channels the fluid energy of the original through hazy sonics and evolving textures, before the main musical theme emerges across a colourfully fuzzed out break, perfectly setting up a meditative finale that should fare well in the morning hours.
