LeRon & Yves Eaux "Take Me Higher"

Out Now on Method Records

Method has proven to be quite a strong label in 2005 with some great releases from Shiloh, Micah, Espen & Stian and this one from LeRon and Yves Eaux. 'Take Me Higher' is their second twelve inch for the label, and finds them showing off more of a progressive tribal sound than ever before.

The 'Original Mix; is a thunderous progressive tribal number with heavy stabs, big bass and a funky groove. The percussion builds with quick high hats and a driving kick, while the bass growls underneath and lush sweepy tones dip in. A good housey vibe builds momentum, shuffling and charging forward while a cheeky electronic vocal comes in. The vocal could have been left off, as the song has the strength it needs already, but it does create the hook of the tune. A nice soothing break at the middle lifts all the sounds up, and reaches for a feel good happy vibe towards the end.

The duo under their Nocando guise for the remix on the flip and score points with a bassy pounding groove. The beats settle in quickly, but have a techier vibe than before. A super low bass bounces in and keeps it moving, while staccato arpeggiator keys stab down into the beats swinging the tune up and down. A sweet break opens up a watery atmosphere full of swishy voices and cool effects. Coming in strong again, the tune builds with the synths and the mental watery atmosphere until the end.

LeRon and Yves Eaux's heavy hitting tribal progressive sound on 'Take Me Higher' is a nice release for Method, and will work wonders on the right dancefloor.
