13 or so years on from its first appearance on Deep Blue, Temple One breathes new life into one of Bobina’s earliest releases. While the intro and outro ring a bell of familiarity with their pulsing arpeggio, Joe Garret aka Temple One takes the track into altogether new territory with his 138bpm uplifting revision, the spoken word sample is there sure enough; “He is in his own blood” but the major key riff and chord progression life Lazy World to new heights. A heart-lifting revision of a forgotten gem.
A team up here, between Dan Dobson (Flashover / MPS) and Lee Coulson (Infra). This is one of those tracks which draws you in with a hypnotic groove and just when you think you’re bedded in the journey, it surprises with a goose bump inducing key change. Bundle that with lasers, smoke and a phat sound system and you have the epitome of progressiv, melodic trance.
Hot on the heels of the Original version, here is a higher-pressure remix from Belarus UCast. Upping not only the bpm but also the punch, this mix doesn’t stray from the huge riffs and soaring chords so neatly penned by Borja himself, but rather tweaks them for maximum peak-time dancefloor impact in his trademark style. Massive!
An evocative, organic sequencer and delicate, warm pads set the scene for this percussively chugging atmospheric piece of music. Supermassive is all about the slow build – filters creep up, enveloped by thick layers of fx to a blissful crescendo. And breathe out.
Half of Ferrin & Morris and now making a strong name for himself as a solo artist, this is Germany’s Alan Morris, the man behind Transistic Records and recent slamming releases on FSOE. The magic of Digital Eye is the layered and portamento saw/sine melody that makes the track so incessant, and also so powerful on the dance floor.
