I have not shared new music in this space in quite a number of weeks. I'm breaking that drought in grand fashion. I discovered this 2009 progressive house remix of Italian electonica duo Criminal Vibes' 2009 track "Caribe" remixed by Italian deejay Matteo Marini. It keeps growing on me to the point I am now currently obsessed with it. And yes, that unusual instrument you hear being used is an actual mandolin in an actual progressive house track... who knew that could work so well?!
