The young up and coming producer from Australia has once again shown us the extent of his raw talent with a melodic, progressive house remix of Project 46’s “Feel the Fire.”

Santoro consistently maintains the melody of the original track, particularly important with vocals as powerful as these. Upon entering a recapitulation of the vocals, Santoro’s ascending kicks chime in, formerly inaugurating our journey into his progressive rework of the big room tune.
The added synths echoing the melody slowly lead us to the first drop, with plenty of those prog house drums that can be heard in songs like in the three Swedes' “Don’t You Worry Child" to build up the hype. The drop is classically reminiscent of the basic progressive house structure, but nonetheless leaves the listener in a fit of joy as the piano is multiplied by several additional sounds.
I think what seperates this piece from so many others and perhaps puts Santoro on the map even more than before is his widening of the kick of the bass; the track is not simply a punchy, light rework reminiscent of perhaps someone like FareOh or Steerner (both of whom we’re HUGE fans of), but instead contains buildups and drops distinctive of a well-rounded producer. Of course, one’s sound can always be further refined, but nonetheless I cannot WAIT for more releases from this young star.
Listen to some more of his remixes, they’re all dope!
