Benz & MD have had quite a year... Possibly one of the years most promising rising stars.. And they top it off with a release on baroque with this rather tasty EP!

Canada√Ę??s finest export provide two very different but equally large tracks.. √Ę??Spiagia√Ę?? is a melodic electronic house gem, full of sparkling key√Ę??s and bright layered synths, weaving through electronic techy percussion√Ę?¬¶ while √Ę??Tainted√Ę?? is a tuffer rolling rhythm affair with big fat drums pushing twisted synth lines through to the ethereal drop√Ę?¬¶ massive support over the two mixes from Sasha, Digweed, Cattaneo, Warren, Seaman, Kleinenberg, Kurt (k-records)√ā¬†& Oakenfold

IDJ Magazine√ā¬† 5/5

The prolific Canadian pair are back - this time on Baroque with another solid, double-header in their trademark, epic, melodic style. √Ę??Spiagia√Ę?? keeps the sound fairly, stripped letting the groove keep rolling and adding swirling top-end sounds and effects for depth. Turn over and √Ę??Tainted√Ę?? is a

little more grandiose with the melody being the star attraction as a lush hook leads to an even lusher, piano-laden breakdown that will have the punters raising their arms skyward. As ever with Benz & MD it√Ę??s subtle rather than overblown stuff and perfect, winter, warmer gear. 9/10

'Spiagia' is quite possibly the toughest track yet from Greg and Marco. Big chunky rhythms and killer bass are placed over the rocking groove, whilst beautiful linear melodies are woven through the heavy beats that drill down into the heart of the track. Becoming heavier as the bass expands, the track builds and builds, the sounds creeping through and peaking during the ethereal break that hits towards the end. 'Tainted' is another heavy hitting track, with more of a throbbing direction leading us through it's filtered percussion and beats. It may take a little while to find its way, but one the main lead introduces itself, the sheer beauty of this track is revealed. Amidst the warm summery melodies, tough synths rise through, bringing the bassline to life, with some epic strings adding the final touch to what is for me, Benz & MD's best track yet. 2004 has been a great year for Benz & MD, and this single is another stepping stone towards the dizzy heights they are so very capable of reaching in the coming weeks and months. A quality package, with the usual Baroque stamp of approval ensuring you know you what you are getting, as this is another worthy addition to your record box.
