Finland’s Orkidea returns to the spotlight alongside Sunscreem with his new single entitled, “Perfect Motion.” Orkidea stamps his full authority on this track thanks to his incomparable prowess of layering Progressive melodies and sounds. Moreover, he has built a commanding reputation for building melodic sound structures and cavernous basslines with mesmerizing synths. Consequently, “Perfect Motion” is no exception, and listeners are in for a tantalizing aural treat.
Fans would remember last year’s chart-topping iteration of the track courtesy Greg Downey. In what was a spectacular 138 BPM version, Orkidea grabs the track by the scruff of the neck and slows the tempo considerably. Furthermore, in doing so, Orkidea retains the nostalgia and essence of the original Junior Boys Own mix. At 126 BPM, “Perfect Motion” is a Progressive House tune that pairs well with warm weather, sunglasses, and terrific company. The single is out now on the label Am Deep in Thought.
