German progressive trance veteran Cressida is among the most accomplished acts out there in terms of fusing trance euphoria with a deeper progressive focus, and he’s appeared on Kyau & Albert’s Euphonic label multiple times over its 20-year-plus history. Fittingly, Cressida is helping the stalwart trance label fire up the new year with his powerful new single, “Sub Culture Code,” teaming up with his fellow countryman Cabriolet Paris to pile on the energy.
Backed up by a solid midtempo house groove, the collab takes its time building an enthralling melody over the course of the track, unleashing heavy bursts of bass along with some delicious deeper progressive embellishments. Eventually, the pairing reveal their harmony in full during the breakdown, a rather elaborate creation that leads “Sub Culture Code” into a powerful conclusion.
Available January 18 via Euphonic.
