How often do you hear a club record that summons genuine euphoria? It’s what trance producers are constantly striving for, though Glaue catches lightning in a bottle here with ‘C Landing’. It all comes down to its epic two-minute breakdown, which he’s cleverly chosen to spotlight by placing it in the opening of the record. It eventually builds to a drop that establishes it as a mainroom melodic anthem, and the exhilaration levels are kept in the red for the duration.
Label boss GQ clearly has a great ear for musicality, which is why he’s snapped up relative unknown producer Voyage before anyone else could get their mitts in. This is a modern roller decorated sparsely with techy metallic elements, and a soulful, confident vocal. What makes this tune particularly sophisticated is the heritage which oozes from within it. It doesn’t sound like a throwback, but more like a homage to years of jungle cultivation.
This eighth release from A Harmless Deed comes courtesy of the label’s co-founder, Argentinean, Madrid-raised Damian Schwartz, under his guise as Epiphany (Schwartz has run the imprint with Jose Cabrera since 2012, presenting tracks from the likes of Fred P and Marcos Cabral). 'Let the Boys Be' is gently acidic, classic by both nature and construction, emotional and oh-so-very deep, while 'Player' too evokes the fine house music of decades gone by, tingling ride cymbals and a dirty synth cutting through. Very nice.
"A cut from my forthcoming 'Electronic Architecture³' album from one of the scene's most consistent production teams — Finland's Winkee. Thoughtfully remixed by my favourite Italian."
