A/B Project – Eternal Optimism
- LabelMondo Records
Humble beginnings for the duo A/B Project, their first release together proved hugely popular, receiving instant support from Above & Beyond and Armin van Buuren and going on to win Webvote Winner on TATW.
Although stripped-back, the Original mix establishes an energetic feel with an arpegiated bassline and driving percussion. A stadium-filling stab lifts the energy further still, giving the track a meaner edge before slowly bringing in the unmistakeable melody. Intricate bassline flurries take you to the elongated breakdown for the lush atmosphere and gorgeous plucked lead.
The Kuffdam & Plant remix adds a few more BPM to the track for even more peak-time draw. Drawing on the synth stabs of the original and adding chunkier percussion and a fizzing lead string Kuffdam & Plant give this mix a big-room feel.
For the last remix of the package, Firestorm brings their trademark sound – a much more ‘trancey’ feel with huge detuned saw strings and an intriguing take on the lead.
