Ivan Miatto – Halo [Nube Music]
The latest release on Manu F’s Nube Music finds the label presenting a new single from Ivan Miatto. Hailing from Rosario, Ivan last appeared on the Argentinean imprint with a remix of Rogier’s ‘Force’ which was released in December of 2016. Now returning for a brand new single Ivan presents his latest studio creation ‘Halo’ alongside remixes from Li Greci & Lexce, Manu F and Gonza Rodriguez.
Although only making his debut just over a year ago Ivan has already developed a distinct progressive sound. Drawing heavily from the golden era of the genre the Argentine’s productions carry wonderful musicality and emotion. So too does his latest effort ‘Halo’ which might be his most inspired work to date. Cascading melodies combined with catchy arps and a warm, driving groove make for many special moments over its seven journey, none more so than the main break which brings all the elements together before a classy drop brightens up the dance floor.
Nube Music label boss Manu F has selected a fine team of remixers here with Li Greci & Lexce being first up. The Argentinean duo follow up outings on 3rd Avenue and Clinique Recordings with an excellent remix here. Coming in deeper and chunkier it not only sits as a lovely complement to the progressive minded original but uses the parts to great effect. Radically revamped, the melodic elements create a much trippier vibe while a well crafted break steals the show with a massive build and acidic finale.
Next up is Nube Music label boss Manu F who has had a great 2017 with key releases on Aethereal and Mystic Carousel Records. The Argentine always has a great melodic sensibility about this productions and he’s delivered a great interpretation of ‘Halo’. Light, airy and atmospheric yet anchored by a groovy foundation it’s both a joy to listen or dance to. The vocal elements are perhaps the standout element though, angelic and ethereal in equal measure they add an otherworldly quality which is really special.
The release concludes with Gonza Rodriguez making his label debut following releases on Balkan Connection South America and Massive Harmony Records. The Argentine’s dreamy, melodic interpretation is perhaps the perfect version to close the release out. It’s reflective tone and sentimentality is heartfelt and should resonate with old school progressive house lovers around the world. A lovely summer release from Nube Music that’s not to be missed.
