Imaginary Numbers

Moullinex, Xinobi

DT174 | 2022-12-02  
James Flower is the alter ego of Tiago Narciso, a Lisbon based producer and dj. With a passion for electronic music and vibrant melodic atmospheres, James set out to develop a personal and insightful approach to songwriting, creating compelling tracks in a mix between nostalgic and warm textured sounds. His productions and performances are a mixture of contemporary house & melodic techno with a unique touch of ambient music.

He chose to remix this track because he says:
"Imaginary Numbers has one of the most beautiful melodies I've ever heard. I was so obsessed to it that I had to give it a twist".

With the original, from the get-go, there’s a real sense of surety that oozes from Imaginary Numbers; as Moullinex & Xinobi are essentially presenting us with - is their own re-construction of - and daring riff on - those original, raw Trance and Progressive House blueprints as they return to working together, rounding off an incredible year for both of them.

But when those familiar crystalline and emotionally charged sonics present themselves here, they’re not kitted out in the loud and brash gear we’re led to expect - but a sleek, minimal new get-up that’s a shade understated and quite refined... and as leg-sweeping as this pairing may be - there’s no repelling in sight, in fact it’s a case of the age-old - opposites attract.

The original track has close to 100k largely organic streams and both artists have combined streams of over 30 million across all platforms.

Original release pitch:
All recent singles have featured prominently in Beatport’s top 100 chart. With recent great DJ feedback from Black Madonna, Claptone, Tensnake, Shadow Child, Sasha, Oliver Huntemann. Full DJ feedback to follow.

Track is already a club favorite with early plays and feedback on in Moullinex and Xinobi DJ sets including Moullinex playing it to over 5000 people this weekend in Lisbon as he headlined Super Bock em Stock festival.
