The whole thing makes for an artistically brilliant and clearly well thought-out production, pop-art at its finest. A strong and impressive introduction to both Folded Dragons and the artist and mind that is SoRi.
LA’s project pronin leads with emotional intention on this latest release, resulting in a decidedly ambient and immersive audio journey, complete with a similarly emotive video that celebrates humanity and human eyes in general.
Infrared is everything the dance or trance fan could want – simple yet subtly recognisable details, a consistent sense of movement and energy, and a brilliantly skillful bit of craft-work that lets the whole thing rain down with an awakening vibrancy.
While the first appearance of the track already boasted enough grit and distortion to hit with impact, somehow Heckert has managed to re-imagine the journey with additional strength and chaos.
Channeling Avici-style vibes, Take Me Back is an uptempo adrenalin-soaked rush through the sort of nostalgia-soaked lyrical adventures that have done very good business in recent years.
Certain parts of Europe hold some of the absolute best raves in the world. This track takes you there, if you want it to. At the same time, there’s a calming ambiance throughout the piece, meaning it can be just as soothing as it is energizing – depending on what you need from it.

“Music for me is very special. I myself had a struggle with alcoholism. The music made me feel good – at a time when I was down, it brought me up. I wanted to give that feeling to other people.”
Producer and artist EL Mo3 has taken a creatively free-flowing approach with this latest release, conceptually encapsulating the very nature of embracing sobriety – the intensity & high that can come from life, from music – by means of a chaotically colorful, multi-layered & decidedly alternative dance anthem that refuses to be ignored.
