Opening 2022’s third quarter, Clubsonica Records welcomes Analog Jungs back to the label for their debut EP. Hailing from Argentina and comprised of Claudio Cornejo and Gustavo Ruarte, Analog Jungs first emerged in 2015 and quickly earned the praise of progressive music tastemakers Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Warren. The duo’s colourful, club friendly sound has found a home on some of the genre’s trendsetting imprints, such as Mango Alley, Or Two Strangers and The Soundgarden. Clubsonica has also been a landing spot for Analog Jungs in the past, with the duo remixing ‘Wild Side’ by fellow countryman Julian Nates in March of 2020. Now, on the strength of an EP for GMJ and Matter’s Meanwhile, the Cordoba duo return to Clubsonica with ‘Arun | Tadasana’, alongside remixes from Sean and Dee and Ejaz Ahamed.
Beginning with the panoramic synth textures and powerful drive of ‘Arun’, Analog Jungs flex their free-thinking muscles with a creation equally at home on a peak time dance floor or floating above a festival skyline. An unexpected shade is revealed through horn-like stabs, as celestial sonics forge a path into the main break. Wavy arps rise and shapeshift across the interlude, bringing a tasteful balance of tension and emotion as the groove drops for a thrilling conclusion. Meanwhile, the companion piece ‘Tadasana’ is an apt barometer of where Analog Jung’s headspace is at, as the duo lets poignant melodies blanket buoyant beats and a forest of striking percussion. The duo’s instinctive ability to tip a dance floor over the edge is reaffirmed with emotive chord changes and balmy atmospherics carrying into the main break. Looking to bring even greater emotional depth, the centerpiece delights with its cinematic sense of space, eventually giving way to percolating melodies and a suitably charged finale.
Providing the first interpretation of ‘Tadasana’ are Sean and Dee who return to the label for their second appearance. As one of progressive music’s most talented acts, the Italian duo have impressed since forming their partnership in 2017, with standout releases coming courtesy of Beatfreak, ICONYC, Movement, Siona and UV. Having made their Clubsonica debut in 2021 with a remix of ‘Masana’ by Juan Sapia and Hasith, Sean and Dee now return to the label with an equally inspired take on ‘Tadasana’. Dark rebounding rhythms and pulsating basslines set the course for snatches of colourful arps and devilish effects. A striking contrast and one which is explored further across a heartfelt break, as a bed of warm chord changes eventually melts away into a tension filled build and thunderous, otherworldly drop.
Making his label debut and providing the second and final interpretation of ‘Tadasana’ is Ejaz Ahamed. The Indian born, Dubai based DJ and producer has been a fixture of Dubai’s nightlife for many years. Residences at Trilogy and Pacha have seen Ejaz perform alongside the world’s best electronic music talents like Adam Beyer, Dixon, Hernan Cattaneo, John Digweed, Maceo Plex, Paul Van Dyk, Sasha and more. Equally accomplished as a producer, Ejaz has found a comfortable home on Proton Music and Particles, where the majority of his progressive minded creations have been released. Now adding Clubsonica to his resume, Ejaz debuts on the label with a groovy rendition of ‘Tadasana’. Smooth and rhythmic throughout, the Dubai resident goes deep and driving for what results in an uplifting eight-minute journey. Electric synth lines, emerging melodies and icy atmospheres unite across the first act, perfectly setting up an effects-laden break. Meandering motifs cast a colourful soundscape as the centrepiece evolves, adding a celestial flair as the narrative builds onwards to a thumping drop and energetic finale. A gorgeous interpretation from Ejaz which rounds out an excellent two-track showcase from Analog Jungs, an artist duo who make their Clubsonica return a most memorable one.
