Cosmic Gate have punched up a track that takes them as far off the C.G. ‘grid’ as they’ve been in a decade. Their final action ahead of the release of their fourth Wake Your Mind Sessions compilation, Universal Love is a dazzling, convention-shaking tale of two tones.
Frontend ‘Universal’ goes on a sonic safari, upping the thump and funk letting the filters rip and bringing it with some tech-n-distort tumult. Nic and Bossi are just getting started though as they pile on the speaker pressure with analogue bass, FX grind, 303 whip and cranked reverb. The break brings an epically proportioned script-flip, dropping into the blissed-out, FX-effected chorus from Natural Born Grooves classic Universal Love. Taking it on an express elevator ride, the tracks couldn’t be more timely “people, get ready” vocal spreads its message of love and happiness far and wide.
In other breaking Cosmic Gate news this month, the coming of Wake Your Minds Sessions 004 has served as the perfect springboard for Nic and Bossi to launch the new division of their record label. With Wake Your Mind Records romping past its 50th release, its new Deep imprint commenced release operations earlier in the month. Delta from Marcus Schössow and Matthew Felner’s gardenstate project had the honors of opening Deep’s discography, which, naturally enough, can also be found within the grooves of the May 1-released Wake Your Mind Sessions 004 album.
