Artento Divini – MangroveRelease date: 2018-08-17
Despite making his debut appearance on Coldharbour almost a decade ago through remix capacity, it’s hard to believe that Artento Divini has yet to release an original on the label. He puts that right in some style; with one of summer 2018’s trance anthems, titled Mangrove.
The Dutchman’s signature driving-trance core was highlighted earlier in the year, when he stepped up to provide a harder coating to Nifra & Seri’s Edge of Time. However, it was a mystery ID from Markus Schulz’s live sets, notably on the Global DJ Broadcast World Tour from Epic Club in Prague, which garnered much intrigue.
The identity was revealed as Mangrove, and immediately became a liveset and radio favorite. A simple yet strikingly effective hands in the air and percing melody makes this an essential play, not only for the clubs or radio, but also as part of the festival highlight reel.
We waited quite a while for Artento to make his original production bow for Coldharbour. For Mangrove, it was worthwhile indeed.
