Having successfully explored all aspects of the electronic scene in recent years, including the dancehall vibes as one quarter of Bad Royale, Maor Levi returns to the label where he first found fame. Following in the footsteps of Anjuna favourites ‘Lital’, ‘Chasing Love’ and ‘On Our Own’, ‘Mercury’ and ‘Neptune’ are a return to the classic Maor Levi sound, supercharged modern trance records.
Salacia and Neptune
In ancient Roman mythology, Salacia (/səˈleɪʃə/ sə-LAY-shə, Latin: [s̠äˈɫ̪äːkiä]) was the female divinity of the sea, worshipped as the goddess of salt water who presided over the depths of the ocean.
Neptune, Latin Neptunus, in Roman religion, originally the god of fresh water; by 399 bce he was identified with the Greek Poseidon and thus became a deity of the sea. His female counterpart, Salacia, was perhaps originally a goddess of leaping springwater, subsequently equated with the Greek Amphitrite.
Debuted during Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy 150 set live from Sydney’s All Phones Arena, ‘Mercury’ is a return to the dark, groove heavy sound Maor made a name for himself with. A feverish collision of electro synths and pulsating electro top lines wash over the dance floor for a frenzied release.
A chunky, house-ier alternative, ‘Neptune’ keeps Maor’s love for rich melody at its heart; the perfect compliment to ‘Mercury”s driving nature. A compelling return to label for one of its most talented members.
