Tim Engelhardt teams up with Sean Doron for ‘Open Doors’ EP on Rose Avenue

German melodic techno producer Tim Engelhardt teams up with Israeli dance star Sean Doron once again for a collaborative EP entitled ‘Open Doors’.

Landing on the RÜFÜS DU SOL-owned Rose Avenue label, joining releases by the likes of Anyma, and Cassian, this four-track EP features two stage-shattering tracks from the pair plus two solo cinematic dance tracks from Engelhardt, who’s arguably become melodic techno’s man of the moment. And, if the two’s April collab ‘So Good’ is anything to go by, listeners know they’re in for a treat.

The EP’s leading track, ‘Open Doors’, featuring vocalist Radoo, re-enacts the instantly recognizable “he’ll open doors” Banks Brothers sample from Moby’s 1999 chill-out anthem ‘Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?’. This vocal fits perfectly with a glistening piano riff and sharp synths, making for an emotional moment on the dancefloor.

The second collaborative track, ‘I Can’t Get Over You’ delves into a deep trance, as the track becomes overshadowed by a domineering pitched down voice uttering the track’s title ominously.

Alongside these, Tim Engelhardt delivers two solo peak-time jams, ‘Falling’ and ‘Luminescence’. The former features signature sweeping synths, and a distinct groove made from gated vocals, while the latter, ‘Luminescence’ revolves around a series of complex arpeggiating high-end synths, over dramatic braaam-style low-ends.

This EP is another reminder of what Tim Engelhardt and Sean Doron, two titans of the melodic techno scene, are capable of together in the studio. The result is a collaborative EP dripping with character, emotion and epic dancefloor drama.
