Styller - All That Remains / Quantum Mechanics
Introducing the latest outlay of talent on the Coldharbour Recordings conveyer belt - Slovakian Branislav Klinko, better known in the electronic community as Styller. And he announces himself in grand fashion, with two tracks plucked from Markus Schulz's instantly acclaimed Los Angeles '12 compilation.
Describing his debut on the label as a dream come true, Styller's tech-fused beats and basslines with emotionally-laiden melodies has seen him win plenty of plaudits thanks to his support from Markus in recent months. The original of All That Remains was introduced through Global DJ Broadcast, picking up extensive plays throughout December and January, and gained a pleasurable rapport with the show's listeners. However, the best was yet to come.
As the tracklist for Los Angeles '12 was revealed, many eyes glanced towards All That Remains, and particularly in the direction of the remixer in question. Undoubtedly one of trance's rising stars and with a stellar 2011 under his belt, Greek Basil O'Glue gave the track his typical dark and brooding makeover, and produced a result which Markus even admitted blew him away on first listen alone. Already tipped by many as one of the candidates for the outstanding track of 2012, All That Remains will undoubtedly play a pivotal part in many a DJ set over the coming months.
Complimenting All That Remains is the penultimate track from disc 1 of Los Angeles '12, Quantum Mechanics. Aimed more for the clubs, the break boasts a hugely energetic melody that builds throughout, and leads towards a pure hands in the air moment that is sure to send any crowd wild. All tracks combined result in a very impressive debut on Coldharbour from Styller. 2012 might be young, but he has left his mark on the year already.
