REVIEW: Sides - Lost Connection / De Pijp out on Songspire

This time we welcome with great joy South African DJ and producer Sides to our label. Sides lets his emotive music selection convey his personality. His signature melodic, progressive house style has earned him global acclaim with releases on Traum Schallplatten, Tommy Boy Entertainment , Basswalk Records as well as his own local imprint Ambious Records.
“These 2 tracks hold a very special place in my heart. ‘Lost Connection’ came together while travelling to Samoa on a surf trip by myself a few months ago in an attempt to disconnect from the craziness of everyday living. ‘De Pijp’ was the lovechild of my first ADE experience, inspired by music that speaks to a larger audience and that is designed for the dance-floor.” - Sides

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Sides delivers two very strong productions that definitely have the right amounts of groove, melody and drive to absorb your imagination and make your body float away while you swing and shuffle around. Lost Connection moves in the melodic techno territory with tribal sexy beats, warm basslines and very cool synthy melodies that hypnotize your senses. On the other hand De Pijp goes the driving progressive house direction  with strong synthy line that moves throughout the track building tension and energetic atmosphere without trying too much. #PureGold Love IT[/content]
