Talla 2XLC & Christina Novelli – ‘I’ve Been Gone So Long (ReOrder Remix)’

The vocal trance gem by Talla 2XLC and Christina Novelli — ‘I’ve Been Gone So Long’, which was also the number 1 on the Beatport trance chart, is now receiving a remix by the Slovak super-hero ReOrder. He’s bringing his own brand of trance sound which is a modern, straight-forward style with old-school trance references. This remix supplies us with pumping basslines, thumping kicks and a brand new synthy theme with warm strings supporting Christina’s vocals allowing them to stand out and shine.

Chris Lake x Cloonee – ‘Nightmares’

“Working with Chris Lake was an absolute honor and a huge milestone in my career that I will look back on fondly. It took us a few attempts to land on this record [‘Nightmares’], but I’m incredibly happy that we did as the final result is amazing. It was also nice for Chris to see how a real producer works in the studio. ;)”

NGHTMRE x KLAXX – ‘The One’

NGHTMRE and KLAXX’sThe One’ begins with a singular strumming guitar, pulling the listener into the music with its hypnotizing strings. As the instrumentals delicately lead out of the intro, “Tell me if you are the one” is whispered. The simple yet impactful lyrics bring out the rhythmic bassline, which  continues to shine throughout the music. The gradual build up to the chorus heightens the anticipation for the climactic moment, and the instrumentation and volume contrast between sections further highlights the uniqueness of each verse. Such alternation brings dynamic and tension to the music.

R Plus – ‘WeDisappear’

A love affair translated into lyrical narratives by the master storyteller and the emerging vocal talent at his side, ‘WeDisappear’ by R Plus perfectly captures the various stages of a relationship that grows, unfolds and regrettably withers in the end. From infatuation and passion to disillusionment, freedom and bittersweet reminiscence, the eleven-track album touches on love’s most resounding emotions, carefully and expertly narrated by the brilliant vocalist.

Each turn holds something new, whether it’s unstoppable riffs, catchy vocal samples, effective disco rhythm, bewitching strings and a “liquid” bass. Across the ‘Liquidz’ EP, creeping, sinister tones here against light rolling embellishments there manage to find their home in a nineties-esque tech sound.

Roni Amitai – ‘Voices’

“‘Voices’ was created at the very beginning of the pandemic. I found myself experimenting in my studio for days, trying to convert the confusion into creation. We all experienced a new reality of social distancing but inside this tangle I found a lot of space to explore. This EP is a culmination and celebration of the freedom this time gave me.”

Kintar – ‘Ascending Lights (feat. Jinadu)’

“I began this track [‘Ascending Lights’] during lockdown and I was emotional at the time, so I wanted to reflect those feelings in the tune. I sent it off to Jinadu, he came back with the idea for the lyrics and I loved it. It seems I managed to find the sound I was looking for: two versions, each of which represent my entire vibe. I can’t say the track has just one influence. There’s something of Depeche Mode and Dead Can Dance in there, as well as twenty-one years of being a music producer and a lifelong music fan.”
