Mike Mago is a name synonymous with brilliant House music. Whether it be in the more classic style or leaning towards the Future House, or the Deep House styles, Mike Mago has tried and perfected. Now he has returned with a new three track ‘Crossing Borders‘ EP, and this has Mike Mago written all over it.
The talented producer and DJ lands on his very own BMKLTSCH Records with the EP, and this label has been a hotbed for upcoming talents as well. They all have been producing a similar sound, with their own style attached to it, but it all just seems to work in such harmony. But now it is time for the label boss to return and he has returned with some quality tracks. The ‘Crossing Borders’ EP is sure to make an impact on the scene.
The first track to arrive on the EP is ‘Feels So Good‘ and already you get a feeling of the track from the go. The piano melodies seem to rivet through the track with a solid bass line backing it up. Adding in the vocals, which add a whole new dimension and edge to the track, it just fuses together into a big mixture of brilliant House. Dropping down, it heads towards that deeper, grittier House style, but it sets the tone for the ‘Crossing Borders’ EP. That contrast though within the breaks and the drop though is just brilliant.
For the second track, Mike Mago has teamed up with the extremely talented Elderbrook to deliver ‘You Don’t Know Me Now‘. This one has that journey like feeling and atmosphere behind it, taking you on a journey through the track. This is all down to the deep flowing bass line which anchors the track, while the vocals add that deep feeling to the atmosphere as well. The synth work also seems to support these elements, and this track has a high addiction level, you feel the emotion pouring out of it.
Finally, last but certainly not least, Mike Mago returns with a solo production and drops ‘Brothers & Sisters‘. This one is slightly different to the two previous tracks, but still contains the same quality. It has that down-tempo energy, a little more out there and a little more laid-back. The vocals really control this track when mixed in with the background production work. But the gritty bass line comes through strong in the drop, this is a really different production for the artist. Solid work though. The ‘Crossing Borders’ EP is a magnificent piece of production work.
