The final Movement Recordings release of 2021 finds Jorgio Kioris returning to the label for a new single. The Greek artist has been a fixture of the progressive music scene for the better part of a decade. Since first emerging in 2013, the Kavala resident and Bloque Festival founder has showcased his music via the underground's premiere imprints, most notably Clubsonica Records, Juicebox Music, Or Two Strangers and Replug. Also, a contributor to Movement, Jorgio made his label debut in 2018 with the well-received 'Linda', before going on to remix Emi Galvan's 'Wake Up' later that same year. Now as we put a stamp on 2021, Jorgio returns to Movement Recordings with the much anticipated 'Marylinn', alongside a remix from Petar Dundov.


Noted for his keen dance floor vision, Jorgio crafts one of his most memorable productions to date in 'Marylinn'. Deep and powerful, its warm foundation is full of contour and character, while sweeping effects and pulsating rhythms build tension as the narrative takes shape. Neatly manicured percussion comes in waves, expertly layered as a colourful arp drops and momentum builds towards the break. Spanning over a minute in length, the rhythmic interlude provides a unique contrast of meditative qualities and dramatic overtones, gently elevating mood as flurries of drums reach a triumphant apex, summoning the groove for a heads down finale.

Returning to the label and providing the lone interpretation of 'Marylinn' is Petar Dundov. With a career that spans well over two decades, the Croatian artist is one of electronic music's most storied producers. Often cited for his distinctive sound, the Zagreb resident makes intelligent electronic music that breaks boundaries, moves feet and twists minds. His inimitable style is marked with timeless qualities and has long been a favourite of legendary DJs John Digweed, Laurent Garnier and Sven Vath. Having made his label debut in 2017 with a remix of 'Eve' by Stas Drive and Tash, Petar now makes a welcome return with a timeless rendition of 'Marylinn'. Staying true to the tone of the original, Petar goes deeper and more emotive across a magical eight-minute journey. Whimsical arps blanket a billowing groove as wispy effects and feathered percussion add colour and drive. Melting down into the main break, arpeggiated rhythms fragment over warm bass swells, building anticipation before reassembling for a stripped back drop and groovy finale. Concise in execution and timeless in delivery, it rounds out an excellent label return for both Jorgio and Petar, capping off an excellent 2021 for Tash's Movement Recordings. Highly recommended.
