House and techno duo PAX debuts of Factory 93 label with a brand new grovvy single “Cosmic Kiss“
The house and techno duo has been holding onto an impressive hot streak of chart-clenching club constructions that have become staples in the sets of tastemakers scattered out across the map, including Danny Howard, Joseph Capriati, Robert Owens, Martin Ikin and Gorgon City. The last name from that list has had a particular heavy hand in championing the project—and rightfully so—with numerous signings to their stable, and even going as far as roping them in for their ubiquitous “Alive” collab from last year, which has amassed nearly 8Million streams on Spotify.
“Cosmic Kiss” is a marvelous chunk of melodic techno that manages to lock lips with the dancefloor while simultaneously taking a firm tug at the heart strings. Pumping with an unshakeable purpose, a relentless rolling rhythm charts a course for the ether. Along the way, pulsating basslines and clap-clack combos work in synchrony with a rotary lead to drag you back into
the track’s immense gravitational pull. The throbbing drive swiftly subsides to make way for an agonizingly intimate vocal that’s made infinitely more sublime through an air of spacefaring pads and weeping strings. After the chanteuse has finished speaking her piece, the plonking percussive pecks loop back around for one final, fateful kiss.
The duo declares: “We couldn’t be more excited to finally be releasing ‘Cosmic Kiss’. “Factory 93 and ourselves have been patiently waiting for the industry to blossom
back to life before unleashing it, and this track, for us, is synonymous with what we have all been missing. It underlines a rebirth, a new era and better days ahead.”
The stamp of approval has practically run out of ink at this point, thanks in no small part to a string of club cuts clocking in regular rotation from BBC Radio 1 gatekeepers Pete Tong and
Danny Howard. Consistency is key, of course, and they’ve been stuck on a repeating pattern of success as evidenced by frequent Beatport climbers (including a six-week run at #1 with “Electric Feel”), as well as breaking the 5Million play mark on numerous occasions with the rattling single “Snake,” a nostalgia-laced take on the classic anthem “Touch Me,” and their thudding tie-up with Gorgon City on “Alive.”
