In Brand New “Taking Off” Russian Duo Denis First & Reznikov Fill Our Hearts With Hope and Joy

While these artists have been bouncing between labels for their last few releases, it’s time they may yet another splash. Continuing our journey we stumble into Ultra Records for the “Taking Off”, the official Ultra debut of Denis First & Reznikov. Both coming from academically trained music backgrounds, the two began experimenting in electronic music while making unofficial remixes of their favorite tracks. Denis First and Reznikov first popped up on our radar back in June, where they won us over with their dance-pop ballad “Empty”. 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.

“The track features magic vocals and that charming sound of a violin that makes you wanna cry and dance and love at the same time. The track is already performing great on the radio – looking forward to seeing it become the next radio hit of the summer!” – Denis First & Reznikov

Even more than in “Empty”, that classically academic background shines through this time and we love it. Whenever you can incorporate classical instruments in an electronic track and allow it to thrive instead of making it more of a gimmick, you absolutely have us sold. “Taking Off” is full of so many blissful vibes that it will easily be on repeat in our playlist for the foreseeable future. The violin hooks us immediately in the intro, taking our hand as we soar above the clouds in awe of the euphoric and wondrous melody. We have no doubt in our minds that whenever we hear it, this beautiful track will bring a smile to our face whenever we are down.

Make sure you check out “Taking Off” on Spotify below or over on SoundCloud!

Russian Duo Denis First & Reznikov Drop Emotional Dancefloor Bop “Empty”

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.

Make sure you check out “Empty” on Spotify!
