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.

DJ D-Xtreme and Devine Noise are back with another collaborative release on Cognitive Music. When The Morning Cums, the 13th release for the label, is a driving, funky progressive breakbeat track that highlights both artists unique styles. The release features both the Original Mix and a new remix from Bass Ballers.
The Original Mix starts with chopped up vocal samples over a thick breakbeat. A sub-driven bassline complements the beat perfectly as we are introduced to the full vocal heading toward the first break, which brings with it some edgy, sliding electro elements. As we progress, the mood changes as a funky, old school piano riff lifts the track as the vocal weave their way in and out. The piano transforms into a synth stab as the full vocal takes over the track, building to another huge electro drop before winding down.
The Bass Ballers Remix takes the original theme and turns it on it’s head, transforming the track into a progressive quad breakbeat track. The drums have a bass vibe to them with the 808 snare and pitched kick driving the song, chopped vocals layered over help give the song its progressive feel. The break brings the full vocal in along with a beautiful synth line that quickly gives way to an edgier synth as the track drops with an amazing amount of energy. Expertly transitioning from sharper to gentler tones, the remix is constantly progressing while maintaining a funky, bass driven feel.

Keeping with the progressive, intelligent tone, adding brightness and high hitting bass rolls resulting in nothing but the best from Seth Vogt as he does justice to the original while maintaining his own distinct sound, including an array of vocals and classic florida build ups.
Next up to bat, the Florida Flavored Breaks duo that has busted the scene apart, worldwide aka the Phat Kidz. Nasty bass drops with dark following highs back into the progressive quad sound you might hear at a Miami late night rave. This track isnt one for the weak hearted, this is serious breakbeat and is recieved as such.
Next to deliver, Molecule takes you on nothing short of a bass journey with what can be described as simply “intelligent trap”. Most amazing this remix is taking on a completely different sound, while at the same time executing the art of remixing in an almost perfect fashion. This remix is truly the future of bass, and breakbeat rhythms. Bringing up the bassfrom the depths of Miami, this is the down right dirty sound of 808 delivery.
Rogue Planet holds nothing back and goes hard for the cause, bringing you to the edge of the beat, and knocking you the FUNK out. Funky Flavor Music is no holds barred, coming out swinging, taking quality Breaks, and delivering them to the world!!!!
