Paul Hazendonk makes his much anticipated return to ICONYC this week with ‘The Thoughts’. The Dutch artist and Manual Music label boss last appeared on the US imprint in November of 2016 with ‘Ten Times’. The first installment of his ‘Signature Series’ (courtesy Manual Music) has been a 2018 highlight, ultimately leading to his ICONYC return alongside remixes from Framewerk and Kamilo Sanclemente & Golan Zocher.
Paul’s got one of the most diverse sonic palettes out there. Equally adept at creating melodic progressive cuts to funky, grunged up techno, and in many cases a cross pollination within individual pieces. Such is case with ‘The Thoughts’, it’s heavy, acidic groove and rising atmospheric resonance and compelling early on. A tantalizing arp soon surfaces, building an intriguing melodic storyboard, eventually leading to a break that’s highlighted by a spoken word vocal, perfectly setting up a classy drop.
Hailing from the UK, Darren James & Alec Milliner make up the Framewerk production duo. Long time progressive house fans may remember Darren and Alec as Manhattan who released more than a few gems from 1999-2003. More recently under the Framewerk alias they’ve rebuilt their long standing Capital Heaven imprint and also appeared on Beat Boutique, KDB and Selador. Now making their debut on ICONYC, Framewerk take ‘The Thoughts’ into deeper, rolling territory with a reworked groove and lovely hypnotic qualities. The main arp sounds absolutely fabulous, very live and organic as it ebbs and flows throughout the first act. The vocal elements get chopped and reprocessed into something much less distinct and quite ghostly sounding, particularly during the main break, stealing the show with it’s cavernous, cinematic feel.
The release concludes with Kamilo Sanclemente & Golan Zocher providing an amazing remix. The currently on fire duo have been staples both in the sets of Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Warren as well as the Beatport sales charts. Now teaming up for yet another much anticipated production they put a pure progressive house spin on ‘The Thoughts’. Bound to be a favourite of the top DJs yet again, it’s fragmented vocals, free flowing drive and astral effects meld together for an unforgettable sonic collage. Expect to be hearing this one a lot in the coming months. It rounds out another sensational release from John Johnson’s ICONYC that’s not to be missed. Highly Recommended.
