The Christmas week 2017 Global Vibe Radio guest mix comes from the Mediterranean island of Malta, located in between Italy and the northern coasts of Africa. The island has an effervescent music scene that has been exploding as of recent, and guest Carl Bee is a perfect testament of that.

Premiere: Vested’s Fourth Label Release Features Original From Lithuania’s Donatello and Remix by Rise And Fall

As a record label, Chicago’s Vested does what its event mother brand has been doing since inception: curating quality music that blurs the lines between genres while keeping musical integrity whole.

The label’s fourth installment is no different. Featuring an original track from Lithuanian international music powerhouse – Donatello, and a quality and finely crafted reinterpretation from Russian progressive house mainstay Rise And Fall, Vested’s Futura EP drops on 29th December. A perfect holiday present for music fans world over, the EP is available via Beatport for pre-order now.

Both artists involved with the release are recognized names in the own right, each known for carving their journey within their own musical landscapes for years now and with hefty release resumes to prove it. Today we are premiering both tracks, beginning with Donatello’s original entitled “Futura,” a deep and driving track that is Progressive House through and through, although peppered with elements of depth and tech that take listeners on a unique path through the track’s length.

In contrast, Rise And Fall’s remix is a darker and more melodic approach than the original, a timeless and classic progressive take that gives “Futura” a different take perfect for a DJ looking for a modern progressive track in their arsenal.
