Fernweh - Ruben de Ronde & LTN - Statement!

With a version apiece, there’s good artistic definition between Ruben and Louis Tan’s mixes. In both forms ‘Fernweh’ (Deutsch for ‘wanderlust’ apparently) is a suitably journeying, thermal trancer. Louis is the sleek melodic model; all phased pads, undulant bass and twinkling piano. With its timbale-like percussion, Ruben’s is looser and has more beachfront atmosphere. Which one is the DJ spinning? You probably only need check your watch.

So Addicted - Total Science feat Grimm - Warm Communications

This one’s a biggie. A low, intense bass sits below the track like a strong-but-mellow shot of expresso, giving the track a smooth and brooding kick of energy. The layers of vocal create an angelic chorale, lifting the whole track to a state of new style liquid. A graceful balance of dark and light decorate the classic Amen, bringing the track into the masterpiece area. The entire EP is nothing short of stunning.

Destroy You at Once - Kevin Koas feat MC I See - A2 Records

A2 Records never fails to deliver raw beats, and this new release features a great catchy distorted rap vocal hook by MC I See, combined with twisted sounds and nasty raw drops.

Backbone/Dissolving - Clameres - Colorize

Two equally fine offerings from the Colorize stable, that deals in electro/progressive on the deeper, darker tip. ‘Dissolving’ on the B-side is the more bassline driven of the two records, while ‘Backbone’ adds a funkier edge to the liquid trance sounds of Clameres.
