Upon discovering the work of Slovenian, Luka Per aka Smooth a little under two years ago, his material just grows on you like an alien virus. Totally encapsulating and always impressive. This is the forthcoming double AA release coming out from the powerhouse, Viper Recordings.
Following the immense success of his last single ‘Virgo Cluster’ and his recent remixes of Matrix & Futurebound’s ‘Magnetic Eyes’ and Dirtyphonics & Foreign Beggars ‘No Stopping Us’, Smooth returns with the next chapter in his journey towards his debut album ‘Leap of Faith’, due in early 2014.
The Sky’s Gonna Break ft. Shaz Sparks
Shaz Sparks has returned to add her angelic and mesmerising vocals to another track of Smooth‘s and this time, as usual, it gels wonderfully. The delightful piano riff sets off the tone to this almost liquid DnB roller with depth. Despite having such a fluidness, I wouldn’t say that this is liquid. There is still grit in the track which gives the tune a rough edge for the more crazy of us. The Sky’s Gonna Break is a very well balanced tune as we have elements of viscosity all weaved into one very warming composition.
On Fornax, we are on a different level. Nothing nice and sweet about this whatsoever. It is a war-face and game-on motivational tune which brings bounce, stomping and in the right environment, chaos. It’s not really a “monster of a tune” as that is not really the style of Smooth. He just brings big, big beats and that is exactly what this is. It is a huge banger of a DnB tune.
We have a lot more DnB going up onto the blog nowadays as it is still all just as fresh as it was almost two decades ago. The quality keeps on coming and Smooth is one of those producer that proves that.
The Sky’s Gonna Break by Smooth is released by Viper Recordings on September 22nd, 2013
VIP version of The Sky’s Gonna Break available exclusively on the Beatport & Viper Shop bundles.
