Following the 2021 release of Monolink’s critically-acclaimed sophomore album Under Darkening Skies, the internationally renowned producer and solo live act now invites two of the underground circuit’s most authentic voices, Argy and Omnya, to deliver an emphatic new remix for the long player’s opening track Laura. The release lands on esteemed Berlin-based imprint Embassy One and marks a debut for newly-formed outfit Omnya,
One of twelve impeccable vocal-led offerings on the record, Laura served as an emotive preface to the thought-provoking and reflective opus that is Under The Darkening Skies. Featuring vocals from Monolink himself, the indie-dance number – and its succeeding cuts – displayed a truly avant-garde essence that labelled the LP his most daring and complex body of work to date.
Out now across all streaming platforms, Argy and Omnya’s tasteful rework guides Monolink’s refined and cinematic original to a dark melodic techno realm that’s conducive to late-night listening. Implementing powerfully resonant percussive work and long, reflective breaks, the pair have created an anthemic gem that’s as dance-inducing as it is meditative. Tethered to the roots of its original counterpart through tone and narrative, Argy and Omnya’s latest release is a masterclass in remix work, opening Laura’s impact to new audiences.

A staunch contributor to the progression of the melodic techno scene, Argy’s impact has spread far and wide across his almost twenty year-long career. Existing above the notion of genres of trends, the prolific Greek artist’s musical output is welcomed across both the underground and mainstream communities; a quality that has no doubt aided in the longevity and success of his career. Equally as respected for his track selection and mixing abilities, Argy has held prominent Ibiza residencies at clubs like Amnesia, DC10, Hï Ibiza, Destino and Pacha as well as an annual residency for Moni Mykonos; one of the most talked-about connoisseurs’ hangout spots on the island.
The newly-launched collaborative project of Israeli DJs and producers Ilan Shemi & Maor Tsemah, Omnya’s presence has already been felt across the underground community through heavy support on their upcoming track IDs. Joining forces in February of this year following a series of solo endeavours, the duo’s impending releases have entered the touring playlists of A-list DJs Tale Of Us, Camelphat and Innellea, among others, with the modern audience eagerly awaiting their arrival. Presenting a musical palate that can be identified through immersive melodies, bouncing rhythms and grand apex moments, Omnya have already found a staple home within Afterlife, performing for the imprint’s recent Mexico City event and now joining the lineup for their Hï Ibiza residency.
