REVIEW: 16 Bit Lolitas-The Rise / You Are An Astronaut out on Bits & Pieces/Armada Music

1.The Rise (Original Mix)
2.You Are An Astronaut (Original Mix)

Dutch duo 16 Bit Lolitas have started a new chapter in their musical story, getting ready for re-launch. Peter Kriek and Ariaan Olieroock bring the Armada Music label a new feel through their Bits & Pieces imprint. A realm for progressive-house fan since 2007, home to all 16 Bit releases and now kicking off with the first release since they joined forces: ‘The Rise’ & ‘You Are An Astronaut’.

2 new murder weapons to kill them feet on the dance floor and lure the music lovers with the patiently crafter, sophisticated sound that 16 Bit Lolitas are mostly known for.

Dimitri Kechagias review: One of the best news lately was that 16Bit Lolitas will join Armada Music and their top label is ready to provide to the world some fantastic tunes on the high level that 16Bit Lolitas offered us through their various tracks and sideprojects all these years. If you adore melodic progressive house beats the two magnificent tracks included in this great EP are ready made for you. The Rise is a driving atmospheric progressive house beauty with tribal wobbly bubbly steady beats, ambient sounds, distorted vocals and great epic melodies mixed up in the best possible way in order to create a warm and welcoming feeling to the clubbers. You are An Astronaut is equally mind capturing as well. It employs housier tribal beats along with rockish basslines that recall in a way the sound of artists like Gabriel & Dresden. The breakdown reveals melodies with Eastern touch to them and along with sounds that give us that impression of watching a sci fi movie. So the clubber will feel like An Astronaut on the dancefloor. Top EP from the Dutch prog house masters who keep their reputation really high all those years.
