M.I.K.E. – The Motive E.P.Release date: 2013-12-16
2013 has been another incredible year for the IDMA-nominated Coldharbour Recordings; hosting a plethora of top-tiered releases from its roster. To close out this year, the label is incredibly proud to welcome a new family member, but someone who needs no introduction in the world of electronica.
Belgian producer M.I.K.E. is responsible for some of the most iconic moments in trance music, whether it is under his main alias, or the alter egos of Push or Plastic Boy. And fresh from contributing to Markus Schulz’s Buenos Aires ’13 compilation with Before Dawn, he presents his first EP of Originals for Coldharbour with three tracks in his unique style.
Leading track The Motive gathers plenty of momentum as the track progresses, and is one that will keep the energy levels high in a liveset. Spacesuit is a slightly deeper take, but accompanied with a haunting melody that shines in the darker moments of a set. And rounding out the package, Mass Freedom is a real hands in the air journey, with acid influences intertwined between the typical M.I.K.E. sound.
After dazzling the New York audience with his performance at the New World Punx show at Roseland Ballroom, M.I.K.E.’s package demonstrates that he continues to be a pivotal contributor to the modern trance scene.
On behalf of everyone at Coldharbour, we thank you for all your support for the artists and label over the past 12 months. See you in 2014!
