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.
