Many tracks are produced with an idea in mind that looks beyond the music, and with the intention of portraying a story or ideal that is valued by the producer. Often the story is related to broken relationships, heartaches, and predominantly negative experiences that bring about change. However, when a track is dedicated to a story of positivity, optimism, and treasuring something special, it has more of an impact that you can imagine. When Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman produced their latest release it became more than just a track, and tells the world about the inspirational journey of a young girl named ‘Penny‘.
Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman’s name amongst the electronic scene is well regarded, given their consistent production quality, particularly in the progressive house department. This track is another shining example of that, but utilises their impeccable abilities to raise awareness for a young girl with a rare illness called Fibular Aplasia, which affects 1 in 40,000 pregnancies. As a result of this, Penny was born without her left fibula, requiring a prosthetic leg. The Swedish duo have created a track that represents the optimism and positive outlook of Penny and her family, through a blissful melody that couples with their signature sound to create a track of joy, happiness, and elegance. ‘Penny‘ is packed with emotion and passion, and is a track that has quickly gained the approval and love of their loyal fanbase. Simplicity throughout allows the listener to hear the more subtle elements that contribute to such a release, and gives the opportunity for those who lay their ears on ‘Penny‘ to truly appreciate both the craft of Dimitri and Wyman’s work, and the meaningfulness of the track.
The track has been a huge feature in the Swede’s sets for a while now, and has appeared on their social media pages in different forms before the final release. Receiving early support from some of the right DJs, and some of the wrong ‘DJs’ too, the track has developed into an instant progressive house hit. Though the original version came with a vocal, ‘Penny‘ was released last Friday as an instrumental version, although numerous edits have surfaced online already, including the Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman ‘Summertime Sadness‘ edit that featured so heavily during their sets.
