Taking on the musical sensibilities of Tribal Pulse around them, the label features two cracking performers and rolls out the red carpet in welcoming them through a breath-taking collaboration of sheer talent. Khen whose part of the Tel Aviv DJing elite joins hands with Swedish progressive giant Erik Pettersson, popularly known as Sonic Union, for the first time to bring in the sixth installment of the banner. Turns out its one of the finest cuts yet ‘Driven By Demand’ has an ornamental style all over it. Held together with a knotty Bass line, the occasional warble sample, makes you feel like it’s from another time. There’s a gorgeous depth inside the body, and by the time one hits the dip it’s all feral and exotic. A fair bit of progression takes the track to its very end with its sumptous, melt in your mouth textures.

Flip around to an exciting remix from Pole Folder, Belgium’s musical treasure. He treats the original track nicely by rounding the shiny edges, stripping its underground flex slightly, and flattens the low end like a warm blanket you want to swing under. The melodic chords flutter in and out of earshot, quite dreamlike, yet terribly satisfying. For the most part, it’s an all too perfect remix both intriguing and breathless at the same time.
