Crossings kickstart their 2021 release schedule with Barcelona-based duo, Hotel Rubio, bringing their Smoke Signals EP.
For their debut on the label, they deliver a strong ep, with sharp influences both from Barcelona, and their city of origin, London – a serious and dancefloor-friendly melodic ensemble. The title track, Smoke Signals, combines classic progressive melodies with modern drums and an asymmetric arrangement, resulting in a powerful underground cut.
The A21 remix’ arrangement is more traditional and old-school proggy. Its catchy melody, spacious build up, and warm familiarity makes it a versatile track and valuable weapon in DJs’ repertoires, across house and techno genres.
Last but not least, Rain Dance is a superbly well-written piece. Its rich combination of components, led by a sharp synth and an equally moving bassline, is simply breath-taking. This is the one we are premiering today.
