The Debut two track EP titled "Cienga" & "Mojana"

Infectious Rhythm is a stable part of the duo's musical style and its prominent thru out the whole EP. The Deep and epic Cienga is super smooth in its creation. Beautiful harmonic undertones flourish the track and add the uplifting strings gel with the driving groove and create a stunning breakdown. Steel drums punctuate the air lifting the crescendos for the drop in. This progressive House gem is defiantly one for the playlist or DJ set for sure.

Mojana is a master class in the way baselines and percussion come together effortlessly to form the stable backbone of the additive swung out rhythm that just keeps the mind fixed on the dance floor. The vocal in the breakdown takes you away to the outer levels of the mind, and then the introduction of melodic bells and slightly menacing synth transfer you back to the contagious main groove.
