Los Angeles house music label Boogie Basics unveils the new single from Chris Melzer, a DJ whose musical journey has seen him as a participant in the dance music scenes of Salt Lake City, Seattle, L.A., and Burning Man. His style involves a 'simplicity of sounds' and to 'layer them to inspire an emotional reaction.' With "The Method", Chris puts this into practice, resulting in a searing peak time house music cut that walks the line between big room and deep house. The huge rhythm intro may deceive one into thinking the track is more pounding than it is … as the carefully sequenced melodic elements enter, the appeal of the cut for late night moments becomes clear. Gentle arpeggiations play over the driving, pulsing bass line and a plump drum track, while a dreamily modulated saxophone riff beckons dancers to the floor. A cool, effective breakdown featuring an inspiring spoken word section is also included, sure to give an electric dose of feel-good energy to the DJ's set. Boogie Basics brings it home again.
