” Beginning with the EP’s title track ‘You Find’ it becomes evidently clear what a unique talent Navar has become. The near twelve minute opus effortlessly melds elements of minimal, deep house, progressive and electronica, for a free flowing journey that has become a synonymous and inimitable style of the Dutch artist. “

“Replug Records continues its 2018 journey by welcoming Navar to the label for his debut EP. Through releasing material on Guy J‘s Lost and Found Records and Canadian behemoth microCastle, the Dutch artist emerged in 2014, firmly establishing himself in the world of deep melodic house. More recently Navar lent his talents to the long standing Belgian Events brand EDGE, launching their new imprint alongside a remix from Guy J as 2017 came to a close. The Dutch artist now steps into the new year with his long awaited debut for Cid Inc‘s Replug Records.
Beginning with the EP’s title track ‘You Find‘ it becomes evidently clear what a unique talent Navar has become. The near twelve minute opus effortlessly melds elements of minimal, deep house, progressive and electronica, for a free flowing journey that has become a synonymous and inimitable style of the Dutch artist. Deep and fluid throughout, it’s delicate motifs and organic designs are mysterious yet emotive, backed by a warm, pulsating groove, underpinning the track and translating it’s spiritual message to the dance floor.
The lone interpretation of ‘You Find’ is provided by Replug label artist Dmitry Molosh who returns for his third appearance. The Belarus producer’s debut on the Finnish imprint proved impactful, making its way into the sets of Hernan Cattaneo and Guy Mantzur, eventually leading to Beatport chart success and releases on Plattenbank Records and Sudbeat Music. As 2018 begins, Dmitry sits as one of the most exciting and in demand artists in progressive house, having toured the world, showcasing his fresh take on the genre while his productions remain on the cutting edge. Now presenting his first remix of the new year Dmitry brings ‘You Find’ a step closer to the dance floor. Encased in a soft hypnotic shell, it’s reshaped groove and rhythmic pulses are transcendent, building momentum as the melodic storyboard takes shape. Atmospheric overlays and fuzzy stabs add further warmth, before the second of two breaks ventures into hazy harmonics and hopeful vocal phrases, creating a wispy musical collage to close out the eleven minute journey.
The second odyssey ‘Moonstruck‘ follows the smooth, organic qualities of its predecessor. Possessing more of a dramatic undertone, raspy stabs and crisp percussion drive the framework, as freeform harmonics create a charismatic canopy. Transferring energy into the second act, spiralling motifs slowly decay into a wall of white noise as the groove drops with thunderous affirmation.
In a world of homogenous sounding artists, Navar’s Replug debut sees him raise the bar once again, setting in motion what promises to be a monumental year for the Dutch producer.”
