Modeā’s ‘Shine’ may have brought many a dancefloor to its knees last summer, but it wasn’t just ravers who were weeping glorious techno tears. “Shine is one of the best electronic music records ever made,”Victor Ruiz states in emphatic fashion.
The Brazilian producer, who has been industrious in recent months with the successful launch of his own label Volta, soon tapped the Donegal artist for a collaboration and the seeds for ‘Bloom’ had been sewn.
“The first thing he sent me was the main theme from “Bloom”,Victor shares. “Listening to those beautiful chords and harmonies, I already had the vision for the whole track. I added some “Ruiz” bass synths to it and the chunky drums and the song wrote itself.”
‘Contrast’ saw an inversion of their workflow. “I started with some chords and harmonies and he added the nasty gritty drums and heavy synths. Safe to say we’re good together,”Ruiz shares.
The final result sees the duo craft two shots of emotional techno with enough bottom-end might to power a range of peak-time dancefloor moments. “I’m super proud of this release with Victor Ruiz. We were inspired by each other’s styles and wanted to join forces to create something unique and fresh together.” – Modeā
