While education in music isn’t necessarily required, some would argue that it definitely helps. This part of our trip we are stopping off at Enhanced music for “Empty”, a brand new track from Denis First and Reznikov. Both coming from academically trained music backgrounds, the two began experimenting in electronic music while making unofficial remixes of their favorite tracks. The duo would later official form and release their first track back in 2016, with many other official remixes following. Now that they have dropped “Empty”, these two are showcasing their versatility in original tracks. If Denis First & Reznikov are not on your radar, that needs to be fixed.
“It didn’t take forever to record this song – it was actually pretty quick! When we first heard the vocals, we knew how the music would sound so once we got to the studio, the idea was here already – all we had to do is to implement it into music. “Empty” turned out pretty emotional, and it makes you wanna dance and think about something significant at the same time.” – Denis First & Reznikov.
It takes quite a bit of skill to envoke the same amount of emotion as solid vibes on the dance floor. “Empty” gives off a precarious tone, as the track feels futuristic and progressive yet haunting at the same time. The track feels like we should put it on late at night as we drive down the highway. The soulful vocal work compliments the track as well, creating this eerie yet hopeful feeling of loneliness. These Russian producers may not have many originals under their belt, but “Empty” proves that their style is unique and still evolving.
