Droplets of synthesisers trickle down intermittently between tides of evenly paced kicks while a hollow bass-line plucks at the lower depths of House music. A seductive and sedentary vocal, appraising the true meaning of music joins the fray while pads and Rhodes pianos swirl and eddy around the listener. Bulgarian production force Sound Solutions, embark on a quest for the meaning behind the music with Alexander Scott taking on the vocal duty on "It's all About", marking Bogota records' first impression on the physical realm, which include remixes from Of Norway, De Fantastiske To, Usmev, and arriving two months later via the digital release, Arildo.
Always bridging the gap between countries, continents and music, Bogota Records have enlisted the help of three remixers from Oslo and Barcelona to bring new dimensions to this music from Sofia. Of Norway cloud their interpretation in a bit of mystery with an ethnocentricity cloaked in pan flutes and sitars, while fellow Norwegians, De Fantastiske To take a more dancefloor focussed route, bringing a darker, menacing edge to their "Submarinering" version of the original track. Barcelonan producer Usmev closes off the release, applying a lot more emphasis on the kick and swirling pads, taking the original track into the middle of the night and placing it square on the dance floor.
