Comments One of the stranger titled tunes I've come across lately. Nice beat at the beginning and a perky synth keeps things flowing up to the slowdown. Here you get a flute, something I haven't heard for a while; nice sound. The melody is a bit ‘speak and spell' in that it's a synth that goes up and down, literally, but I love the little bit of scratching to kick it in; great touch. The flute comes back and adds a level of nicety back and with this what you'll hear is a pleasant sound. Goes on for a bit, which I usually like; but here I wanted something else to happen as it was repetitive. That aside, I do like the feel to this; it makes me smile.

Comments When you hit the slowdown, you get a great flute sound, very similar to Deep Forest of old; like it. The build-up works nicely as well, you get to a beat before the melody which can and does have quite a powerful effect. The melody is catchy, the beat driving it along with a simple enough synth for more listening; it's when the flute drifts back in that the real energy is released here and it's strange how such simplicity can have a positive effect. It does need more though, what is here works; but with some more depth this could be a really awesome tune. One to have a listen to and an artist I'll be keeping an eye on.

Comments Nice beat with this and the sounds and noises at the beginning are very tempting in that not a lot is given away, similar to ‘Beautiful Morning'. It does go on for some time before things slow up before the melody, but it definitely gets you in the mood. Things then start to warm, all be it slowly and finally the tune really starts. It's a real crisp and clear sound and I really like that. It's not complicated with too much sound, what you hear is just right for the track. The second half there's some extra noise added, works well and keeps the momentum moving with a nice extra lift. Good club music this, I really like this.

Comments Bouncy start, with a different noise to keep you entertained, very positive. Slows down quite rapidly to the point of almost a single piano break, which is very nice and with the sounds in the background creates a good ambient vive. You do get the feel underneath of something potentially special, not sure why; it just sounds right. The melody then comes into play and you get a very deep, but uplifting experience. I like the highs and lows that this takes you through and you have to listen very carefully to what is going on underneath it all. There's a lot of noise, but it's nice and clear and as things come to an end there's a real crescendo of sound; works really well indeed. Good length in the right places, especially the melody; a tune you can really sink yourself into. Special.

Artist Mike Sanders
Comments This has a really nice start, very fresh and simple. Synth is short and the melody very quickly gives you a positive feel to what might happen as you listen. It's not a big club tune if I'm honest, but absolutely has a place in any good set. The slowdown doesn't give too much away and it's not until you hit the melody that things come together and what you have is a very nice sound. It's here that things stay, simple. What was needed was a much harder synth at some point to give this more punch, whereas it fades out to an ending. Needed more as the start was really promising. Still a fresh sound I would add and definitely worth some ear time.

Artist Michael Flint
Comments Like the beat in this, hard and steady; same as I enjoy my sex! The slowdown is a bit different, really does slow with a harp type sound, which works well. I like the sparse vocals that fade in and out, again add to the atmosphere. The melody is a lively number, lots of energy sounds; bit high pitch in places; but it keeps a good tempo. I like the tune change midway through, sounds good and to be honest the whole sound is a good one. This isn't classic in anyway, but what you get is a constant beat and a good undersound. Needs to do a bit more in the melody which is good, but does get a bit samey. Nice.

Comments Sublime and beautiful, 2 words that describe this tune. I first heard this on a beach in Tunisia and it immediately became my holiday track, simply blew me away. The melody is one of the most uplifting tunes I've heard this year, it just hits every spot. The vocals work and fade in and out of the track to great effect. The synths are crisp and plucky and deliver a really good sound, very piercing and to the point. This just delivers for me at every level, love it to bits. Goose bumps now as I listen to it again.

Artist Colonial One feat. Simon Latham
Comments This gets off to a great start, super beat and some real nice synths to whet your appetite. The slowdown introduces a nice piano break, with the obligatory build up behind the scenes. Again, this really does get you ready for something sweet; which is further enhanced when a whole new melody starts its way into the main part. The transition is seamless and what you get is a really powerful melody with some extra depth of sound. It doesn't go mad, it gives you what you want to hear. Very subtle in some places, but powerful in others; the blend works a treat. It just needed a little extra at the end, a longer melody with something more; otherwise a top tune.

Comments I am liking this label a lot, delivers the sound I really like; not too fast; but with energy and passion. The beat works well, but the slowdown goes a bit weird. It keeps in tune with the theme, but it doesn't sound quite right; it goes a bit too deep. It soon gets going and the synths and melodies work well in harmony. It's not a truly emotional tune, but the whole feel gives it that edge and to be honest it sound good. You get a tempo uplift as it goes through, which is very rudely cut short; which as usual is a shame as the tune was just starting to get into a really good rhythm. Nice tune though.

Artist Steve Morley feat. Sarah Jane Neild
Comments OK, vocal trance and not great to be honest. I do like vocals when done properly, but these sound very out of place during the slowdown. Things then settle down a bit and you get into quite a hard trance tune. The melody does sound a bit flat to me, it needs something to pick it up which is attempted by some under the beat synths, which come across as background noise. The vocals then come back and that pretty much ends it for me, they are not in place and make the tune sound out of sorts. Poor.

Comments Beautiful start from artists and a label that I am really liking right now. The slowdown is really nice, the way the tune comes back to life is very smooth and nice on the ears. I like the sound this artist is using, smooth and chilled; but with purpose. The melody comes and you are awash with an awesome sound of subtle synths, a smooth beat and a really good uplifting and emotional feeling. It's not too emotional (and over used in many respects by others), this just hits the right nerves. Nice synths roll in and out of this to add to the atmosphere, simply sublime. I wanted more of this, but will just have to do with near perfection.

Comments This is rather an unusual sound, different; but not bad. Lots of weird synths and then it slows down to some normal type sounds, different. The tune starts to get all uplifting and emotional on you, which works well; but does get quite intense in places. When the melody comes, you have all the pieces in place and now with a beat. There's elements of this I really like and there are bits that I don't, but for this I'm going to stay positive. The melody is very epic, nice sound and real hand waving in the air stuff. I would have liked more, it was starting to rock and then decided to end. Some nice touches here.

Comments Love the way this starts, the beat just rolls along and sounds really cool. The slowdown brings us a nice synth and a real feeling that something good is going to happen. Nice subtle piano brings the tune a bit more to life, but by now you are already floating along. The melody comes to life and it all comes together very nicely. There's not a lot going on which gives you the chance to listen to what the artist has done. There's a real passion embedded in this and I like the whole feeling, it's not manic; it's a nice mid-range tune. Close your eyes and let your ears take you on a journey, it's simple, but effective.

Comments Another sound tune from Pulsar, on the much harder trance edge that they've recently embarked on. Like the synth early on, has an acid feel to it or certainly something quite retro; nice. The slowdown we have piano and a real nice break beat, plus some haunting vocals which all together sound real nice; but don't give any clues as to where the tune is going. The trance kicks back in and before you know it the beat comes back to live, but you've not hit the melody; it's an unusual play. You then get the melody and I have to say it's a pure master stroke in coming out of the slowdown, wonderful and teasing. The melody itself has some nice sounds and synth, very uplifting and very driving in its energy. The end comes too soon and if this had been a tad longer this would have been genius, for now it's seriously sublime.

Comments Another good tune from the 138 label, which I'd found this label much sooner; but hey I know about it now. Great club trance tune this, real pounding beat and that great trance sound that really drives home some serious energy. The melody kicks in and you feel there's more to this as the sound is a bit in the background and needs cranking up and them bang, it happens. The tune o=comes to another life with just that little bit of extra energy, but it makes a whole world of difference. The tune doesn't last enough for me and is a tad broken up in the melody which soils the flow, but this is a great tune with a wonderful sound, nice.
