Subsky "Rainman"

Out Now on Only Records

Hailing from Istanbul, 26 year old Goktug Citci has been involved with music since a very young age. After working in Radio Cool in 1997, Goktug discovered progressive music. By 2001, his alias Subsky was formed, and as they say, the rest is history. Rainman is due for release on Only Records, who host an impressive roster containing artists such as Christian Cambas, Jay Wave, and Jose Zamora.

The Original Mix boasts the refreshing style of mellow progressive which is trademark of Subsky. The bassline goes deep, giving it a progressive feel, whilst introducing an uplifting melody over the top giving the track quite a light feel to it. Those familiar with Subsky's previous works will know this sound well, and while there may not be anything particularly new to this track over his other works, it is sure to be welcomed warmly by many.

Turkish DJ / producer Kaan Duzarat found his direction when he started working for Istanbul's Dinamo electronic music radio station. His remix of Rainman takes the track to a deeper level, giving it a real groove which smoothes over the original in many ways. Many elements of the original still remain in tact, but its the little things which matter, and the little things are what have been improved in this mix. This would be a great track to warm the crowd up, as its sexy vibe is sure to be able to work any crowd.

A fair release for Only Records, and the Kaan Duzarat Mix is worth checking out. However, for those looking for sounds which are distinctively different, then maybe this could be passed up. If the classic Subsky sounds are your thing, then definately give this one a chance.
