We end a wonderful 2007 with this holiday treat from The Defender Droids, the cybernetically enhanced pairing of Nicholas van Orton and White Rhino. Slinky synths fuse with robotic stabs while organic melodies interface with industrial atmospheres, creating a musical illustration of a future in computer heaven. Dynamic Illusion ends a breakout year with yet another stellar remix, cementing his role in the evolution of progressive house.

As heard on Metro 95.1 with Hernan Cattaneo
