Zahran's unique blend of genres is further highlighted in "Vengeance Manor," where lush keys and raw bass rise, creating a beautiful orbit of deep house dreaminess. Concluding with the considered and minimal "Golden Thought”. Zahran is a master of blending genres and pushing the boundaries of deep house and “Space Dance” is a testament to his artistry. A must-listen for any fan of deep house.
