Comments Real thumping stat to this, lots of good sounds going on and you're interest will be really perked. You get a little intro to the melody just before the slowdown, so far so good. The slowdown you get a mad beat for a bit and then to calm down there's a nice guitar break as things progress ahead. The melody kicks in and it's what you're expecting, got the beat and a real impotence underneath it; with the synths driving things forward. Dash of sound here and there to keep things quirky, works nicely. The tune then starts to unexpectedly drift into a lull and doesn't recover, which is almost criminal. I thought this was going to go cosmic and it had every opportunity, but no. A good tune that should and could have been so much better.

Comments This is a slow tune to get going, so do bear with it. It's a very progressive tune and that's important as the music does come, but it's not until you get to the melody. The beat is steady and solid and the melody is nice, quite simple; but it sounds good alongside the beat. The melody is added to mid-way by a very vague vocal, which does help to a point. It does sound a bit dreary to be honest, the artist has mixed things up a bit, but in tune with the title. This is an OK track, no my exact cup of tea though.

Artist Ahmed Romel
Comments This has quite a pacey start, which hits a very slow slowdown; so much so that I think it ruins the record to that point. It does pickup once you hit the melody, but it is really hard to get back into things, give this a chance. This is very uplifting, with some great high synths doing the business. The beat sounds a bit flat underneath, but you get some wailing vocals which add a nice dimension to things. The beginning cripples this tune which is a crying shame as the second half works really well.

Artist Allen & Envy
Comments These 2 are growing on me, can be a bit cheesy at times; but on the whole a good sound is delivered. This gets off to a good start and then hits the slowdown, which is just that. This starts to warm up and you get a hint of the trance sound which explodes when you hit the melody. Strong beat with some nice crispy and punchy tones. The sound is quite uplifting, but that's mainly down to the synth which is quite dominant. What you are wanting however is a nice uplift and you get that in the second part, it's very subtle; but enough to make a difference. This is a really nice tune.

Artist Aurosonic & Frainbreeze feat. Nina
Comments I simply love the Aurosonic sound, it's so melodic and deep. This has a slow beat to it, but the depth is there which is what will really grab you. This just flows along, the piano cuts in for the melody to add that extra bit on top, it sounds really good. Nothing too complicated here, just a good groove with some simple melodies. It's a bit on the uplifting side and will certainly make you feel a lot happier with things. My moan is that it's too short and needed something a bit more in the melody, otherwise very nice.

Artist Miroslav Vrlik
Comments Starts with some purpose, quite pacey and an interesting (yet subtle) melody. Things take a strange twist when it slows, the melodies change quite a lot; gives the track a real eerie feel; it's quite good. The tune then comes to live with a quite a different feel, a good one I would add. The tune feels urgent, like it's trying to get someone fast. Then a melody comes in which makes a massive difference to the feel of things, it's starting to get going. At this point it desperately needed that little extra touch which had been eluded to in the last 16 beats; it doesn't happen. The tune slows, which is always a real killer in my views and therefore the foot is off the gas. This works, but it is lacking at the critical points.

Artist Ultimate & Moonsouls
Comments A familiar sound between these two artists, I certainly feel they complement each other very nicely. The slowdown is really nice, I love the feeling that is generated and the way the piano comes in to start tings moving. You then get a nice synth to finish things off, it's getting warmed up nicely. Things then come back to life with a really powerful and emotional melody. It will make your skin tingle, the harmonies are spot on and the extra sounds in the background really bring this to the fore. The sound is crisp and to the point, not overly crowded; just enough. The melody is also importantly of a good length. It doesn't need to change as what you get is exactly right. Ends leaving you wanting more, a beautiful tune.

Artist Neo Kekkonen
Comments Taken from the Generations EP, this is a good solid number. Pacey from the start, but pace with purpose. I like the almost acid sound in the background and the way this builds as it progresses, nice. The slowdown changes the feel with a very different synth, but it's still on the pacey side and the noises that float around in the background are keeping you on your toes. You won't have a clue where the tune is going, is that good or bad? Well, it goes in a very good direction; I love the energy of this tune. This is dance trance, rather than the emotional stuff. This just grabs a sound and soups it up and then throws it back at you. My criticism is the melody should have been longer, will have driven the senses totally wild.

Comments I find this artist can blow hot and cold, so what will we have today? The slowdown works well with this, you get the essence of the tune in quite an emotional way. The drums that start to play sound really great, I like this way of drumming; almost regimental. My criticism would be the pause is too long, needed to get going a bit quicker. Once it does you get everything together, with more. Very euphoric, energetic and hands in the air time. This will lift you up, not too high; but just enough for you to get a really good vibe going. It could and should have been longer, but this works well for me.

Artist Ciro Visone & Alessandra Roncone
Comments This is quite a subtle tune from the Spring Dream EP, lots if nice undertones and some real deep messages. It's not one that immediately stands out, but you have to let this play out. I like the start, it does put you off guard a bit, but there is enough going on to make it interesting. Once you hit the main melody the tune starts to come into its own, with the beat very smooth and the melodies pure and clear. You will just be getting into this when a second (or so you think) part kicks in with a really profound synth, but the beat disappears and so does your heart. If this would have continued it would have been a very strong track whereas it's just plan good.

Artist SoundLift
Comments So, the guitar here is electric and not guitar; which surprised me; but only based on the track title. There is no slowdown as such, you keep the tune throughout which is very different. The melody kicks in and you get a nice plucky synth and the guitar in places. I like the guitar sound and it fits nicely into the tune, but the tune apart from that does sound a bit flat. Its almost like the guitar is there to liven things up and things are very short so no real time to settle in and give this some serious ear time. The other track Ibiza is pretty good so between them this is a good tune to consider.

Artist Aly & Fila, Roger Shah feat. Sylvia Tosun
Comments These guys are growing on me again as this was the anthem to FSoE350, so a terrific milestone to reach. Great beat and feeling to this and listening to it all, it is very much an anthem. I would say vocal alerts, but they are more of a speech, but sung. The beat is quite hard and in places sounds a bit out of place, I can't put my finger on why. The melody starts and it's pretty much what you were expecting from the beginning, with some vocals fading in and out in places. The anthem really rips when it all starts back up, with some extra synths and at this point you hit that ‘hands in the air' moment. It doesn't last for long, but it's enough to lift this tune. Nice.

Artist Six Senses
Comments I had to listen to this quite a few times to workout which one I liked the most, which is usually a very good thing. The tune bounces along with real purpose and I like the simple, but effective; synth work. The melody has a certain twang about it, which makes it sound different. Once into the main melody, you have a really nice sound; something you can lose yourself in quite easily. It goes on for a good length and towards the end there's an extra bit added for that lift that you always want. It does end a tad on the short side, which is a bit annoying; otherwise this is a great sound.

Comments This is too short, lets it down in a big way as there is so much here. Solid classic trance at every point through this and it sounds really good. The melody hits a real hard sound, not too much going on; but just a hard noise that will have you nodding your head in appreciation. Bit moody in places, but all in all what you have here is a really good sound, but nowhere near enough length or variation. I will keep an eye on these guys as I suspect there's a gem in the offering.

Artist Etasonic vs. Laucco
Comments Quite a few different versions of this, all pretty good. This is quite an epic tune, has all the emotional elements thrown in as well; so you know you're going to get a real high pitch number. When things do get going the sound is really nice, all in harmony; nothing too stressful on the ears except a good vibe. The tune keeps going which is a real plus and you get a piano break late on which adds a real nice touch. Probably needs a bit more in terms of depth, otherwise a good tune as part of a great EP.
