Comprising of three peak-time dancefloor cuts, ‘Solar’ draws upon 90s progressive house and features hefty helpings of 303 acid toplines.

“I worked on these tracks throughout the year with a focus on creating music for the club,” Kottis says. “I challenged myself with upping the tempo and experimenting with 90s sounds.
“I’m really pleased to see so many DJs supporting this release – from Bambounou featuring ‘Cosmic Drift’ in his Boiler Room set at DGTL to Sally C playing ‘Dreamscape’ all around her summer festival circuit. This track has become one of my most requested after its debut on my latest HÖR stream.”
Openers ‘Solar’ and ‘Dreamscape’ are euphoric affairs – their breakdowns unleash emotion embedded within stabbing synths – whilst ‘Cosmic Drift’ burns more slowly, shifting through a chugging bassline as it progresses.
