Two cutting-edge producers join forces in the form of Portugal‘s Hozho and Hungarian Droplex‘s new release – “Sitting In This Cage.” True to their style, this melodic techno track truly feels like a sonic journey through time and space. Opening with soft piano notes and its namesake spoken riff, Hozho and Droplex quickly layer in ominous tones with growing synths and a dark, minimalistic bassline. Throughout the progression of “Sitting In This Cage,” one can almost envision the subject’s journey to free themselves of their mental and physical bonds. It’s a perfect balance between ethereal melodies and the darkness of minimal techno and psytrance.
Portuguese producer Hozho has become known for his minimal and yet melodic techno style (or how he describes it “Melodark“), bridging the gap between the light of progressive melodies and the nefarious underground. Perhaps just as identifying is the plague doctor’s mask he always wears while performing, which is to keep away all negative energies and problems other people have, whether on the dance floor or in their personal lives. Hungarian artist Droplex is another leader in the forward-thinking scene, most well known for his 2018 single “Dance,” which stayed at #1 on Beatport’s Minimal Chart for almost a year. Both artists have performed together at Insomnia events, as well as other festivals throughout Europe and globally.
