Getting 2011 off to the best start possible is ‘Phoenix/Triangle’, the new single on Size from Kris Menace. As one of the most highly regarded producers and DJs around today Kris has shown himself equally adept at turning out high quality techno, disco and – with tracks like Phoenix – house music that can ignite the biggest dance floors around the world.
From the very first beat of ‘Phoenix’ you know that once again you’re safely in the hands of a master producer. Someone capable of holding a dance floor’s interest over three minutes of slowly building ethereal sounds, building up the tension before a wall of synths and bass kicks in and a room full of hands reach for the sky.
On ‘Triangle’ Kris serves up seven minutes of driving bleeps, beeps and bass topped off with an increasingly epic synth line that crowds will lose themselves in amongst the smoke and lights of the dance floor.
‘Phoenix / Triangle’ is Kris Menace at his best, continuing to tread that fine line between underground credibility and widespread accessibility, and is another example of why his tracks find their way into sets of everyone from Erol Akan and SoulWax through to Annie Mac or Tiesto.
