02. Solid Stone – Hidden Agenda (Original Mix)
Phenomena ushers in the Summer season with a highly anticipated EP from label boss Solid Stone. 2019 has seen the Canadian artist release two of melodic techno’s most widely acclaimed and sought after EP’s in ‘Monsoon’ and ‘Ritual’. The two track offerings yielded play and support from his most revered contemporaries, namely Adriatique, Tale Of Us and Sasha. Resounding chart success followed, with the latter earning an extended stay in Beatport’s Top 100 sales, along with being selected as one of June’s best new Progressive House releases. Now with the summer festival season about to kick off, Solid Stone returns to Phenomena with the two track artist showcase ‘Black Market’.
With over a decade of production credits, Solid Stone has continued to flourish. Sitting comfortably in electronic music’s elite, the Canadian artist continues his story with the moody ‘Black Market’. Following a prelude of stark beats and dubbed out tones, comes fiery percussion and ghostly meanderings. As the atmospheric narrative continues to build tension into the break, meditative arps descend over flurries of drums, before devilish stabs pierce the air, sparking a rousing finale. Tastefully minimal yet abundantly powerful, this is a production designed for a big cavernous room.
Perhaps an ideal complement to its predecessor are the tranquil tech-vibes of ‘Hidden Agenda’. Hypnotic and fluid, the pulsating framework gets adorned with hazy atmospheres, smooth rhythmic artefacts and a deadly hypnotic arp. It’s seductive presence quickly becomes intoxicating, as smooth chord changes spark an emotional response, before a tension filled drum roll transfers energy into an evocative final act.
In a year that has seen Solid Stone already craft some of his most memorable work to date, he is never content with resting on his laurels, carving out two more unforgettable sonic moments with the ‘Black Market’ EP.
