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.
This line-up of acts on one of the longest-running and most prolific hardstyle labels shows how much great new talent has come through on the European hardstyle scene over the past couple of years. Atmozfears shows his diversity here, delivering a much rawer sounding remix than his recent releases on this label, keeping the energy high with the main breakdown, using the melody and vocal from the original and then dropping with raw stabs and vocal breaks.
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.
Tempers down the brash vocal EDM vibes of the original single from 3LAU and Bright Lights, exchanging it for some summery electro grooves. Smooth, silky and fun.
