ARTISTS: SHARAM & REINIER ZONNEVELD
1. SHARAM & REINIER ZONNEVELD - SKI (ORIGINAL MIX)
We’re proud to welcome Sharam
- also known as one half of the illustrious Deep Dish duo - to Filth on Acid.
Together with label head Reinier Zonneveld he brings “Ski". It
marks the second release in the Cocktail collaboration series, in which Reinier Collaborates
with his favourite artists. Ski remained one of the most sought after tracks in
both artists’ performances over the past half year. The reason for this is
straightforward; the track is a colossal crowd pleaser.
Ski starts with a tight,
multi-layered, hypnotic percussion sequence, paving the way for the
introduction theme in an effortless manner. A long stretched synth fades in, on
a floor of complimentary acoustic backings. The drums are crisp and punchy, the
vocal is dreamlike and elegant, anticipating the transition away from the
intro. Combined with the full melody the vocal and synths form a real earworm,
without going over the top. Classic analogue synthesizers with portamento
slides and a sharp arpeggio keep the tension and energy levels rising until Ski
goes back to basics at the start of the breakdown. The arpeggio leads the way
for the vocal and melody to return, and when this happens - after an
appropriate amount of teasing - Ski is pure ecstasy.
