The 18th release for Cognitive Music sees Dave Gluskin return with his first solo single since Circle. ‘Close To Me’ is a vocal driven, melodic breakbeat track with energy to spare. The track starts with some rhythmic ambience, leading to the introduction of a strong breakbeat. An old school feeling bassline comes in with a myriad of chopped vocals, as layers of arps and chopped vocals set the stage for the introduction of the main vocals. She starts with “close to me”, repeating several times before the main verse comes in, a catchy, moody vocal that builds as it progresses. Once she finishes the verse, the energy is ratcheted up with a 303 and huge bassline. The main break brings the vocal back while filtered arps fill weave in and out in the background. A subtle riser builds under vocals, bringing everything in for the final drop, a massive auditory blast combining all the major elements to produce a big, hands in the air moment. An amazing journey, this song is a must have for breakbeat DJ’s everywhere.

Come On Music, the first collaboration between Cognitive artists DJ D-Xtreme and Devine Noise, is the Tenth release on Cognitive Music, and these two have delivered an amazing track. The song is a dark, heavy breakbeat journey that has elements of both progressive and electro, a perfect collaboration between these two artists. The track starts out building a fat, distorted, kick driven breakbeat with several percussive elements while adding beautiful arpeggiated rhythms as we head into the first break. The melodic side takes over and calms the mood for a moment as we build back into the beat. A very strong bass line pushes the dark nature of the track as rhythmic synths and an ever present distorted vocal keeps the song moving toward the big break. As the beat drops, rhythmic chords and a myriad of pads and effects help build the energy back to a bass heavy break while the melodies and effects reveal themselves. This track will fit into any breakbeat DJ’s crate, appealing to fans of all tastes.
On remix duty, Bass Ballers come out of the gate with an 808 driven version that keeps the dark feel of the original while bringing a funkier side to the track. Boom is the name of the game as this remix comes hard from the first beat, hitting the lower frequencies while bring the melodic content of the original. As their remix builds toward the big break, a sub boom bass line and driving melodic elements really make the remix bounce. The break brings things way down with a gated pad and keys as the energy builds into a huge bass line driven beat, bringing the earlier elements together into a killer finish. This remix is build to destroy subs and dance floors alike.
Brightness, a new production from Spanish producer Colombo, is the latest release on Cognitive Music and it’s a massive nu-skool breaks track. It all starts with a bouncey breakbeat as a filtered, disco-esque guitar line cranks up the funkiness. The filtered guitar heads to a break and into the track’s first drop, which comes storming at us with a huge complextro line. Vocal snippets, 8-bit sounds, and a catchy driving arp lead us to the song’s big breakdown. Here, the arp takes over, added to some piercing stabs and deep swelling bassline, the song builds and builds until the drop, bring all the elements back together to blow the roof off. An amazing track start to finish, full of energy and guaranteed to appeal to breakbeat fans of all tastes.
