Honestly, Durante is a win any day of the week. Time and time again, the Italian-born, US-based producer solidifies his position at the top of my electronic acts table. When it comes to powerful build-ups dwelling in the progressive and deep house scene, he is impeccable.

His new track featuring Brazilian producer Maz (BR) is a wonderful spiritual journey for anyone chasing that uplifting rave vibe. Released via Amtrac's label Openers, there's definitely a tribal scent to "Ivory". I might be biased because of Maz's country of origin, but this feels like a trip to the jungles of Brazil. It is both powerful and calm at the same time.

Now I just want to dance.
