Headstick serves Progressive Greek Gourmet

Heastick records Gourmet Vol1Stronger than ever before Headstick records is back with an all Greek progressive trance dish. Served on the rocks or straight on the beat, this compilation will please even the most demanding ears.

There is an electro influence throughout the CD starting with the patiently powerful Stereo Glass by 9West. The textures are complex but the progression piping hot with a sweaty club atmosphere. Not much sauce as the chef would have ordered.
Right next Dima challenge your taste buds with Head On, a slightly darker, dragging rhythm that implodes into a classic prog trance tune.

Well known Drone delve deep in their progressive side with Hanging Out At Night. Drone really know how to cook a great track and this is no exception. Electro influenced with a fat creamed up bassline and lots of spice on top.
The first collaboration sees the working of In A Dood Mood between Damod and Vagua. A patient affair with a steady build up to gourmet heaven.
Things go even more eclectic with the addition of Gio Red preparing Agressive. This a dish served cold in the morning with lots of smiles and anthemic feelings in the air.
Midnight Pulse have Resolve boiling in your ears. Another progressive track that keeps you dancing throughout the morning leaving you hungry for more.

If deep erotic melodies are your thing, Kijj by Neomatic does not dissapoint. It has that unmistakable Ibiza feel combined with a stripped down energetic beat and uplifting percussion.
The progressive trance maestro is back Searching. Vagua deliver an extremely pleasing sound straight from the oven. Some of the best the Greek cuisine has to offer. The style is fat bass and strong rhythms with the melodies torturing your soul and swinging body.
Some great music here and the last track from Atropa titled Wanga Tanga is cooking. A little more laid back than the other tunes in this compilation but still sounds passionate and resourceful enough to take you on a final journey.

If Heastick did restaurants I would be a regular, this is for sure, but most importanlty the label manages to discover the most talented chefs in the Hellenic progressive trance scene with worldwide appeal.

Guys the service was great but you forgot the tzatziki.

Preview and buy from Saiko sounds or Psyshop
