Opening the musical triptych, the title track is a glorious combination of big groove and rich melodic juxtaposition.

Having established himself in Steyoyoke, Diazar is greeted in deep immersion with an incredible track. “Distante” begins with a rhythmic bass and kick, which quickly evolves into Diazar’s signature sophisticated percussion playing. The producer then takes us to the far reaches of space with accompanying arms and delicate synths. Pulsating melodies creep in until the traps and effects fully seep into the dance. The energy continues to rise and explore the intervening spaces until it smoothly transforms into the mystery and polishing of the break. A piece that gives free rein to ideas and sounds.
