2/5 : Not Bad

Comments Oddly supressed start to this, but the beat soon lets rip and you're into the swing of things. When the slowdown comes you will feel a tad lost and asking what's been achieved and you wouldn't be wrong. It's a tune of not a lot going on, no real purpose of driving synth. This comes about 4 mins in and not soon enough, the synth is very crisp and clear and you're now left wondering what is to come. The beat comes back with the synth and I found myself holding my breath, begging for something special to blow me away. It didn't come. Lots of noise and not a great deal of direction to this, it's a complicated tune in that I just don't know what the artist was trying to do. Might just be me.

Artist Suprano vs. Rya & Manida
Comments This is a clever tune, starts with a typical hard beat with lots of pace and then in the slowdown you get a piano break which is just sublime. Things then edge back towards the main tune, with things hoting up nicely. The melody comes and to be honest I was expecting a bit more, I like the smoothness of the sound and the nice tempo increase to keep things alive, but it didn't explode in my ears. The end comes a bit too abruptly as well, I thought it could have gone on for longer as all the right ingredients were in play. This is still solid and sounds good, it could have been more.

Comments Nice solid start to this, lots of emotional stuff going on so a real tease as top what the tune has in store for your ears. The build-up is about right and gets you nice and ready for the main course. This is a banging epic of incredible sound, real high pitch stuff; emotional as the term now goes. A piano comes in towards the end, subtle; yet effective. The sound is quite immense and all powerful, but alas it comes to an end at a point where you are really on one. Fortunately, it kicks back in with a slight different emphasis, very nice indeed. The break actually works against the tune as it slows it down, but that's me being fussy. Really good tune, nice start to 2014 for Pulsar.

Comments You need to stay with this, beginning is a bit rough; but once you get a few minutes in things mellow out. Once you get to the main melody things really start to warm up, this has a really urgent feel to it and I love the way the drums and beats are all blended together. Second half this all comes together as is almost break beat in how the beats are used, abstract in places; confused with complete clarity. Piano time and you have hit the right spot, this just oozes class by this point. Strange tune to describe, but the energy and feel to this just rock.

Artist Jordi Roure
Comments Love the title of this one and the tune to go with it. Catchy tune with some really nice melodies and synths. Starts nicely and the slowdown brings a nice sense of anticipation which is built upon very nicely. When the melody kicks in you are ready for what you get and it doesn't let you down. Good solid beat and the synth that you've had throughout plays a key part. There some extra progression on top to juice things along and this works really well. Moves well and the general feel is very summery, which is nice. Tune is nice and long, almost spot on to be honest. Great tune.

Comments This is becoming an interesting label Linger, keep an eye on them. This had a good start, sound beat and a guitar; which makes a change. The rest of the tune loses the guitar which is a shame and you get a flute of sorts. The melody kicks in and although I like what I'm hearing, it is missing something. The sound is very deep and I think it's this in that there's nothing that then stands out as being ‘in your face'. I do like the general feel of this though, the undertones work really well and the general sound works. It's deep though.

Artist Allen Watts
Comments This is a real brain pounder, has an abundance of energy throughout and will drive home that great classic trance feel. It does actually start a tad slow, but once the energy it let out this goes mental. The melody is just fantastic, there are some extra synths in the background that just lift this into the sky and then keep going. The power and drive is just amazing, it's not fanatically fast; just the power that comes out of the speaker. This is real peak time music and will drive people mad. It ends as quietly as it starts, so a really deceptive tune. Wonderful.

Comments Whilst this is a good tune, it does take an age to get going and when you do get there you're not hearing anything significantly different. Good beat (as you would expect) and the vibe is a nice bouncy tune, with not too many noises; but enough to keep you happy. The second half of the tune does get an uplift, but it's a bit of a flat one in that it's not big enough. This is a still a good tune, I like the feel and what the artist has done is deliver a nice sound.

Comments I had to listen to this quite a few times to pick my fave as all the mixes are good in their own ways. The sound is quite a cheesy one and edges onto what I would call safe ground, mainly that this doesn't break any real boundaries. Once you get to the melody, the beat is good and I like the synth work and the main synth that drives the overall tune. It bounces around very nicely in a fairly high pitch manner. It starts to slow down a bit and I thought it was going to go again as it started to, but ended a bit prematurely. This has a nice sound and as a set of mixes, holds good value. Bit safe though.

Artist Sunset & Myk Bee
Comments As the title suggests, this is a nice happy summer type tune. The synths are beautifully crafted, subtle; yet there and audible. You get to the melody quite quickly and whilst this isn't a head banging tune, you have to listen to the deeper notes and what's going on behind the scenes. The melody is just nice and it works for me at any time of day, it is a very soothing tune; yet has real power and meaning depending on your mood. The sound doesn't go far, you get the odd noise here and there; but it doesn't really need it and the artist is just delivering what they want you to hear. The great thing is that you get it all twice, not often you get a tune that's average in length with two good long melodies; really nice. Not much to fault about this tune, it just works.

Comments Both versions of this are good, very much depends on your mood as to what you'll go with. Good bouncy tune this, lots of depth and energy; although it feels a lot more mellow than it will have you think. Good melody kicks in as the tune builds up, a bit retro in many ways; but effective. It does low up a tiny bit and I found myself shouting for it to let rip and then it does. The general ambience won't blow you away, but the drive underneath of this and when the extra melody kicks in that sounds like it has sped up; it just works. This is different to the norm and it's this that I really like and the fact that both tunes are good, make this a must.
