Howl At the Moon - Driftmoon - Pure Trance

Opening the score sheet for Solarstone's new imprint, a now conspicuously on-the-march Driftmoon locks his studio dial to pure trance. To be fair his output is already very much in the vicinity, but on 'Howl At the Moon' those keystone components come evermore accentuated. On his 'Retouch Mix' Solarstone adds his running/pummelling b-line hallmark and further beefs up the payoff. All in all, an impressive opener. 

High Stakes - Dave Leyrock - #138

To the rapidly burgeoning traditional trance tempo label convention comes Infrasonic's contender, #138. Leyrock's intro is competent if largely uneventful. We can forgive him that, as the meat of the track is more impressive. The lead riff's intuitive note arrangement is well developed and with a precisely timed filter release, it lands with quite some impact at the apex of the drop. 

True Science/Rights Of Passage - DJ Rasoul - Robsoul

If there’s a producer that deserves thorough revisitation, it’s Bay Area don Rasoul. For a decade, he did no wrong for the likes of Panhandle and Grayhound and thanks to Phil Weeks’ Robsoul imprint, we have two of his finest re-released. ‘True Science’ is incessant, a trippy masterpiece which drops deep jazz at the halfway point. ‘Rights Of Passage’, as SWAT with Kwai Le Chief and Nikola Baytala, is dark and delicious, tribal house of the highest order.

Solar Sailing - John Daly - One Track

John Daly's latest release for One Track showcases the Irish producer's ability to merge musical elements with DJ-friendly arrangements. The 'Full Tide' version of 'Sailing' is informed by Detroit techno as dreamy, woozy chords unfold over a raw, humming bass and tingly percussive slivers. The 'Deep' version brings the chords to the fore, placed over doubled-up claps, while the 'Rhythm Section' version focuses on dense percussion and rolling conga drums. Fans of vintage Kevin Saunderson should seek out 'Sailing'.
