John 00 Fleming x Fuenka – ‘Chapter 3: Corruption’
Now for those anticipating a classic three-act trancer, well, we’ll refer you to the word “epic”. Indeed, the track has something of its own odyssey-like ‘story-within-a-story’ to unwrap. John 00 Fleming and Fuenka give the opening minutes to scene-setting ambience, as timbale percussion, chirping cicadas and ethnic harmonies initially swirl those ‘Corruption’ waters deep. In a measured fashion it then enters a five-plus minute run of hypnotic, progressive throb, applying layers of diving-bell-deep drums, earthmoving bass and coolly curling 303.

Heimanu – ‘Raaen / Die Awake’
Heimanu’s double-sided effort couples two contrasting rushes of adrenaline into one cohesive journey through wave. ‘Raaen’ jumpstarts the proceedings with a jolt of euphoria, revolving around an empowering combination of clattering 808s, sweeping synths, breakbeat patterns, ethereal melodies and howling vocal hooks cleverly sidechaining to the bursts of bottom-end. The emotion alone is enough to stop the dancefloor dead in its tracks. There’s a darker edge dwelling within the B-side. ‘Die Awake’ embraces the chaos, charting a path towards destruction that is outlined by haunting vox, frenetic arpeggiations, thumping drums, and seismic padlines. Although both tracks occupy their own unique section of the emotional spectrum, the real beauty of each manages to shine through with these two gems sitting side-by-side.

Peter Forest’s striking vocals stand at the core of the track, aiding a slow build that intensifies to reveal a burst of sonic synths and a powerful drop. ‘Everybody Keep Running’ is the perfect addition to any workout playlist, willing you on when you need it the most.
