After a long day, I finally was putting headphones on and I listening to the track I had in front of me. micFreak’s track Sparkz, although labeled as trance, has a progressive house feel to it.
After having listened to the release, I dove into micFreak‘s offerings on his Soundcloud. I discovered his content mostly to be house and progressive house. Fitting I thought, considering Sparkz contained those elements. What I found was that his offerings differed fairly drastically from his new single release. The bright synths in Sparkz is largely overthrown by more mellow and melodic house offerings. I particularly enjoyed his monthly DJ set posts. They are very well worth a listen.
