Deep darkness: Joint Operations Centre released Behind the Silence with Kate Miles [Subculture]

This is something sooooo dark, but soooo damn good! Joint Operations Centre comes back with a bang! His new track with Kate Miles, Behind the Silence just got released with Subculture on August 3rd and it is definitely something to have in your playlist. 

Any day, Joint Operations Centre released something new, it is a good day. It does not happens that often, so we these kind of news makes me happy. Love John O'Callaghan's alias and work, so I can never keep quiet about it. It's been quite a while since he last released "Pathological effect".

It is the first time the darker Joint Ops sound has quartered a vocal, and a pretty darn special one it is too. Kate Miles is the girl on point. Together, she and John have conspired something hypnotic and alchemic for ‘Silence’.

Track sounds perfect. It has that darkness that captures your soul, but it doesn't make it a prisoner. It sets it free. Free to a world of deep sounds. Free to a clearer mind. Free to a goosebumpy state of mind. 

Production-wise, John warps up a storm, echoing ‘Behind’s vocal refrains, whilst catalysing its perc loops. Underlain by the finest resounds of doomy bass, he draws its darker parts into the FX banks, from which they emerge frayed, distorted, but charged.

While her sweetly sung tones initially veil the track’s darker heart, Kate’s song quickly stirs the waters deeper still. With John’s violin and pianoforte poignancies underpinning it, come the chorus, the Norwegian singer swings the emotional wrecking ball for a final time, laying its truth bare.

Float. Breathe. Dream. John O'Callaghan & Stine Grove - Our Destiny is pure magic [Subculture]

Fire in his production belly, John O’Callaghan has already (per Mixmag) “explored his dark side” this year with ‘Next Stop Muddy Waters’ and fortified club floors further with the magnificent ‘Choice Of The Angels’. Into May - and again exhibiting his renowned flexibility to produce across trance’s broader span - the Irishman’s charting a vocal course.

For ‘Our Destiny’, John’s connected with Danish singer/songwriter Stine Grove to conceive a nothing-less-than-spellbinding new single.

This is pure magic. I am listening to it on repeat now and I feel so light. So airy. Everything is perfect in this track: From melody, to lyrics, to vocals. Everything. John can never disappoint  and Stine Grove always sounded amazing! Ripe with illustrative song writing, her voice animates every word, lending each line more significance than the last. Touching, enrapturing and stirring, it adds yet another new dimension to John’s productions.

Naturally ‘Our Destiny’ carries all the hallmark studio punch and floor clout you’ve come to expect from JOC. Reflecting the refined nature of its vocal though, his underlying intricacies serve the track equally. Long, drawn filmic strings, unhurried piano and more measured bass movements underscore its midsection, before uniting with its drums & mainline to bring the post-break altitude.

A track that exists as much for subtlety as strength, you can experience John & Stine’s ‘Our Destiny’ here from May 25: subculture.choons.at/ourdestiny
