Making his debut on Cognitive Music, David Salgado brings an energetic, vocal progressive breaks gem to the label with A Thousand Words. The track starts with a strong breakbeat and filtered pad, which is quickly met with a dirty, edgy bass line, building the energy right from the start. A chopped and effected vocal is introduced, weaving in and out as the supporting elements grow in size and depth. Breaking down to just the vocals and the pads before bringing the beat back with a more complex bass line, again dancing around the chopped vocals. Synth flourishes are introduced as the song leads to the final break, a female vocal, singing ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’. Strong in both melody and groove with a ton of energy, this song is fantastic and a must have.

With their first collaborative release on Cognitive Music, Bad Boyz Of Breakz members KJ of K5 and DJ Chronic bring some fire with Take Me Away, a very energetic, funky, old school feeling track with complextro elements that blends vocals and pianos into the vibe.
The track begins with a funky, hard break and chopped up vocals, setting the energy level high from the start. As it winds toward the first break, an aggressive electro bass is introduced, bringing some grit with it. As the beat drops out, a soft melody and vocal samples build to a frenzy, leading to the drop. A solid complextro line is interspersed with the main vocal sample, weaving in and out while building to the main break. Here, an old school piano line comes in, bringing with it a hands in the air feeling. Travelling between both vibes with ease, this is an amazing track from start to finish.

Afflicted, the 14th release on Cognitive Music, is the first collaboration track between DJ Rob-E and Dave Gluskin. The song masterfully incorporates both artists styles, delivering a pumped up, driving, melodic breakbeat track that is sure to fill dance floors.
The track begins with a strong beat as chopped up vocals weave through piano chords. After a short break, a booming sub bass joins a driving, grinding mid bass to fill out the bottom end while the beat becomes more complex and funky. A 303 and other melodic elements give the song a progressive feel and build the track’s energy at a smooth pace into the big break, where the full vocal is introduced. Augmented by a solid piano riff, the powerful gated vocal drops out as the final build into the drop takes over, leading into a big, hands in the air moment, when the vocal and piano join the synths and full drums. This one is not to be missed.
