April flew by with several festivals and events providing the perfect chance for new music to be heard and tested. Each month I personally go thru hundreds of new promos and releases to find the very best progressive house vibes for all our Magnetic readers.
The genre itself lends to a progressive flow in music from opening vibes to melodic gems and driving "Melodic Techno" rhythms. A legend in the genre, Hernan Cattaneo stated it best in interviews saying "I don't just play progressive, rather I play progressively".
Favorites this month include a solid new track by Kennedy One as well as new music by Abity. Both tracks have a dark and rolling quality to them that really brings me back to the older days of progressive house where the beats and bass always took center stage.
While I still love the melody-driven vibes of modern-day progressive house, there's something hard to beat about the driving quality of the the first two tracks on this list...
