Viva Recordings revisits Atnarkos This Feeling single with a remix pack from Approved Electronic Device, a nom-de-plume of underground dance music stalwart Chris Fortier. Orlandos Atnarko continues on his rise in deep house circles, with top notch cuts in his belt for the likes of Noir, Kolour, and Robsoul and the growing renown of his Infiltr8:Celebr8 parties. Atnarkos double A-side single This Feeling / Before Sleep his first for Viva Recordings garnered praise from the likes of Anthony Pappa, Phonogenic, and Pete Moss and continues to be heard in sets a year later. Fellow Orlando production don Chris Fortier has been a friend and collaborator with Atnarko since the 90s, so its fitting that he tackles This Feeling with a remix from his Approved Electronic Device moniker. The mix begins with a deep, tribal groove thats both crisp and beefy, accentuated with a simple but punchy bass motif. Mesmerizing stereo pads form the backbone of this cut, repeating in a dubby cycle as effected vocal drops occasionally beam into focus. Approved Electronic Device also supplies an ambient Reprise that adds lush, syncopated vocoder chords, as well as an old school-style Bonus Beats, showcasing the deeply percussive rhythm.
