Frogacult – Flow Sensing (Synergetic Records)

Frogacult, originally part of the avant-garde of “Scandinavian Progressive” is back! One halfof the duo left, another producer joined instead – which results in a familiar groove on the one side and refreshing new sounds on the other. Reduced to the maximum – this was and still is the basic principle of Frogacult. It’s not melodies but rather sounds that create the drive of this title- which distinguishes it from many current Progressive productions.

It’s not his typical super easy-going beat structures, but two “shiny” dance floor tracks full of good mood and positive feelings.
