It is always nice to introduce great music produced by friends of the music world, and this time I get to talk about a certain lady, Amber Long who has provided us with the track “Sofia” along with Mike Griego. Amber has certainly been making waves in the progressive world with releases on Stripped featuring remixes by the likes of King Unique, and Mike Griego goes from strength to strength with his superb proggy sounds with a host of releases on the likes of Sudbeat and Perspectives Digital.

First up on this release we have the “Dub” mix of the original which really is one of those tracks that just fills your heart with warmth. For such a cold time of the year this really does make me think of Ibiza and those sunset/sunrise vibes. The drop on the track is sublime and the way the growling bass presents itself during the drop just sets my hairs on end! What a track! This is big, trust me!

Next up we have the ever faultless Guy Mantzur on remix duties, and this remix comes shortly after his incredible album release alongside Sahar Z. You know when this man gets hold of a track he will only work magic, and this is no exception to that rule. Guy chooses to use snippets of Amber’s vocal to tease the listener throughout the track, and I really love what he has created. He creates an almost funky progressive sound to his remix that works superbly well with the intricate melody that weaves in and out of the track. The track, as you would expect, is filed with delightful pads and wonderful ethereal sounds. This really is one of those atmospheric numbers that just takes you on an incredible journey.

With big support from the likes of Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren and Guy J you know it is going to be big. One for you all to purchase on 22nd December for sure. Listen, like it, cherish it! It is a delightful release!
