A production-team up between former Godskitchen resident Steve Arnold and current wunderkind producer Jamie Baggotts, Triangulum is a mesmerising, subterranean journey through dark, intense and trippy progressive.
Something stunning here from one of the modern trance scene’s founding fathers; Orkidea. Higher State is designed for the clubs; the sparse and percussion-led production lends itself perfectly to a finely tuned sound-system. Tapio’s signature sound and style is firmly in place; gritty, filtered synth stabs, a sprinkling of glittering arpeggios, hypnotic rhythms and ethereal vocals all play their part in this DJ-friendly Pure Trance master class.
Liam has raised his personal bar on this slice of perfectly pure trance music which has been a searing highlight of Solarstone’s Dj sets for months, generating a wave of ID requests which now get answered.
It’s the infectiously simple detuned abrasive lead that sets this one apart and has so much impact in the club… the best trance records are often the simplest, right? With a post-break payoff that delivers a sea of emotions and an audience of smiling faces, this is one for the long-term section of your record collection.
Georgia’s Levan Nadareishvili a.k.a. Nuera is a seasoned progressive producer with previous releases on Black Hole, Enhanced & Songbird. First up is the mighty Vendetta, a tense and focused combination of gritty sequencer bassline, jagged Moog-esque lead and rattling percussion. Lyse is the more hypnotic of the two here, featuring expansive sound design, expressive arpeggiated lines and a relentless build to a beautifully melancholic break.
Renowned film score composer Tony Anderson prefers to describe himself as a sonic architect and his lush orchestral / electronic hybrid soundscapes lend themselves perfectly to a Pure Trance interpretation, so it’s over to resurging producer of sterling reputation Robert Nickson to deliver exactly that. A wonderfully optimistic sounding production is the result; soaring pads, heart-warming muted pianos and a huge, majestic lead all combine to blow away those winter cobwebs.
