Artist: Guy J
Title: MDQ / Diagonal
Label: Lost & Found
Released: Out Now!
Genre: Progressive House
Guy J’s trippy brand of Progressive House returns to his own Lost & Found imprint with a double sided EP which is massively enjoyable and, as with most true Progressive House, incredibly thought-provocative, wondrous and creatively brilliant.
The four on the floor progressive drum line in ‘Diagonal’ is relentless and holds our attention whilst other elements build on top and stack together like an intricate musical puzzle. A melodic arpeggiated synth with a nice wide delay keeps us moving as a glistening aura gives offs rays of joy in the distance. This is a wonderful track and a great start to any EP.
‘MDQ’, again, has a strange mystique with a delightfully warm characteristic and a solid punch. Guy J is an absolute expert when it comes to building on each part. Everything is in a constant flow of spectacular sound, with each extra component adding something different each time. When the Progressive melody really drops a mind blowing 7 minutes in, that’s when things get truly special. At over 12 minutes, some might say this track is pretty long, but for those of us who truly appreciate a Progressive House masterclass, the journey is worth every single second.
