The third EP by Theo Kottis in Moda Black opens with the cut called ‘UFO’, an emotional composition, ethereal atmospheres, care arrangements that give to the cut a vibrant, exciting rhythm, a precise percussion, a few catchy vocal loops and constant changes in the development of the cut making it pay attention constantly. Track that is complemented with remix by Michael Mayer, who adds a touch darker and more forceful, a sound that is more oriented to the club, keeping parts of the magical original melodies, and a few more mysterious and disturbing synthesizers, and a rhythm sometimes somewhat more nervous.
The second original cut fromTheo Kottis is the so-called ‘King’s Day’, a deeper, dark, with a slower tempo that the previous, pulsating arpeggios and more melodic melodies, synthesizers describing most cosmic and mysterious atmospheres, and a few chords of piano that filled with melancholy to the composition. Track that it comes with a remix from Sau Poler, a beautiful and excellent remix which starts with the piano chords, to which it are joining the different electronic layers to create some atmospheres more enigmatic and dreamlike, with an excellent progression and development that creates tension across it.
