Title Hurricane Original Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist Laker
Comments Good beat to this and I like the slowdown, very contrasting to the rest of the tune. Melody draws on the early start and adds some nice drive to things, I like the way this sounds. The beat is quite harsh and the synths are similar giving this a different type of sound, more aggressive and meaningful. The melody has a good length to it and towards the end you get a piano thrown in for good measure. This is a good club tune.

Artist Marian Closca pres. Skyscape
Comments I like this tune; in fact both tunes are very good with the flip called ‘Steam Traveller'. Great build-up with this and the breakdown doesn't slowdown; you get a ton of energy which just starts to progressively build-up. You get a feeling that this is either going to explode or fail and I'm pleased to say it explodes. You get a really solid trance tune once you are into the melody. The synths are very euphoric, but the beats underneath are really pounding away and oddly enough the two go nicely together. I would have liked more, especially with an extra twist; but that's my opinion. As an EP, two very solid tunes.

3/5 : Good
Artist Physical Phase
Comments This is a melodic tune, with lots of deep synths and melodies. It goes on the emotional path, but keeps on the right side of this i.e. doesn't go overboard. The breakdown is very nice, I love the feeling you get from all the noises and this blends nicely into the main melody. You get a good solid beat and all the melodies from earlier in the tune. Has a good level of feeling and there's a drive underneath that keeps the tune flowing along. Towards the end you get an oboe, which sounds a bit flat compared to the rest, but is still a nice way to finish things off. Couple of remixes now by Asteroid Belt that have been good, artist is on my radar.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Blueye
Comments First time I heard this I really liked this and although on review I still do, not as much. This is a very high pitch tune playing on all the high end synths that make up the classic trance sound. It's quite plucky and bouncy in places and the melody moves along really well. There's something missing and I can't put my finger on it. On the one hand I feel I have been here before and on the other I think it's quite a refreshing sound. I think you should have a listen for yourself as the jury is a bit out at the moment.

Artist Deathmind & Estigma
Comments You will need to listen to this a few times to really appreciate things. The vocals near the beginning are brill, very goa trace days. The tune is then all moody and you won't be sure which way it's going to go, but keep listening. The melody launches and the mood becomes some really nice euphoria, but with a nice deep spacey undertone. This isn't earth shattering, but every time I listen to it I just really get into things. The melody is a tad on the short side, which is a crying shame; but the rest sounds really nice on the ears.

Artist Digital Elements
Comments This is a seriously deep tune, but a tune with some wonderfully rich undertones. This is not a club tune, but in terms of something that delivers an amazing sound with the simplest of sounds and touches, wow. It is progressive so you will need to keep listening as the tune unfolds and builds upon itself. It comes back to its roots now and then of emphasising what the sound is all about and then it drifts of in another direction. This is not going to be everyone's thing, but it's certainly mine.

Artist ET Project
Comments Nice solid happy tune, or ‘emotional' as they seem to be badged. OK, so this does go for the cheese factor, but hey sometimes that works well and is also dependant on the mood. So, if you are in a happy mood you will love this. Super upbeat melody with some really powerful noises, all a bit on the high pitch side; but nonetheless a nice groove and feeling. It is a bit screechy, but then I guess that's what you are wanting. I like this as the melody has a very positive and happy vibe, just like me.

5/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Overseas
Comments This has a really nice funky beat and vibe to it, although keep with it. The slowdown is nice in that it builds very progressively to the main melody, teasing you along the way. The beat and undertone work very well together, with the beat delivering quite a fast and frantic feel and the main melodies calming things down. Second half you get some serious high pitch melody that really lifts the tune up, on top of everything else you have already heard. It's quite frenetic to be honest, but it maintains a good tempo and a fantastic vibe. This isn't perfect, but in terms of a quality tune it ain't far of.

Comments Great beat. Love the way it kicks in and out at no notice, sounds good. Get some vocals in places; add a nice touch of depth and feeling. Nice funky melody in the middle, but don't expect too much because it won't happen. What you hear early on is pretty much what you get throughout. It's a nice crisp, clean sound that works well on me.

Comments This guy always produces good music and this is no different. Lovely start to this, lots of passion and you can just feel that it's going in a good direction. The melody kicks in soon enough and it's just a blissful experience. Great highs and lows and the pace in maintained throughout. Not a lot more I can say, have a listen I doubt you will be disappointed.

3/5 : Good
Artist Aicos
Comments A nice techno type beat this, with a weird spacey mood in the background. This creates a really nice atmosphere and when you hit the slowdown the mood is pot on. It's quite a pacey track, but for some reason it doesn't feel as hard and heavy as it should. The build-up to the melody is really nice, lots of atmosphere; but perhaps a tad too long. When you get there it's very much what you have already heard, but all compiled together. You do get some extra melodies thrown in which enhance the atmosphere of the tune very nicely. There's no full on moment, this remains constant and steady. A nice tune.

3/5 : Good
Artist Amadeus vs. Aly & Fila
Comments So, this sounds very much like classic PvD, so not too bad on that front. I like the beginning and how it builds up, especially with the scant vocals. Moving onto the main melody, no real surprises here with the tune continuing in the vein that it started. The beat is constant throughout and keeps a good pace going, with some feely bits. Ends a bit abruptly for my liking and could have a bit more melody with some nice extra up-tempo moments. Still a good tune and worth a listen.

Artist ARS
Comments Couple of tunes on this label recently that have been good, so nice to see them getting back on form. Nice start to things, with a solid beat and some different synth sounds to soak your ears in. When the melody launches I was expecting something different and although I was a tad disappointed I still like what I hear. Expectations was this would be a progressive killer tune, whereas you get a constant beat and a nice extra melody towards the end. It works, but the tone led me to think something else was coming. Good work nonetheless.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist C-Systems feat. Hanna Finsen
Comments This is an OK tune, weak at the beginning with the sound being far too repetitive. It does get off the hook slightly once the main melody kicks in, the beat and feel is nice and the extra piano break adds a nice slant on the tune. I do like the urgency in the tone of this, but it's a bit too much throughout the tune and it loses its vibe. Potential.

Artist Manuel Rocca feat. Emily Richards
Comments Nice plucky sound to this which does mean that it will probably get a bit down on itself at some point. This is a slow tempo tune, with lots of melodies and atmosphere; really looking to create that emotional feeling. I find the synth work in the build up a bit heavy and out of place at times, but not too bad. I would add the vocals on this aren't too bad, but better without. The rest of the tune does go a bit samey to be honest and you do wait for that little something, which does eventually come via a piano break. The melody is nice and long so although it's much the same you can really immerse yourself in it. Not a bad effort.
