Comments This has got a great beat and the beginning has some nice synths and noises that really do draw you in. Nice slowdown, keeps the pace very well and the synths continue to flow. The melody starts in earnest and the tune is very bouncy and happy, I really like it. As things progress you get a nice piano break and the tune is by now in full flow. It's a very smooth sound, moves well and you have to listen to all the extra bits in the background. The tune goes on for a while, all at a solid pace and it progressively builds to a climax. This is a really nice tune, out of the blue as well.

Artist Kheiro & Medi & Mhammed el Alami
Comments A strange start, with lots of strange sounds. Not unpleasant, just strange. It does take an age to get going and for some of this you are scratching your balls on what is going to happen. Eventually it does start to get somewhere. The melody has a nice sounding synth and also a noise that echoes in and out, sounds OK. The sound does sound a bit confused though, almost not sure what to do or what to focus on. It jumps the sound around a bit, again sounds OK; but the tune doesn't have enough real depth to make it stand out. It's very much OK.

Artist Witness45 feat. Jess Morgan
Comments So, vocal alert and they are a bit of a mixed bag. Not sure what I initially saw in this as the start isn't great and is very slow to get going. In fact, the vocals offer nothing to this tune, which is quite normally the case. However, the melody does deliver a really nice sound with lots of energy, but alas the vocals kill it. A dub of this would probably be OK and the melody would need to be longer to compensate. Very average.

Artist Headstrong feat. Stine Grove
Comments This isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea, it's a very slow and deep tune; which is very much the remix by Aurosonic. I like this sound, always have so have generally always liked their stuff. It's a bit dreary I admit, but if you listen to what is going on and the sounds coming out; it's a nice tune. The vocals blend very well with this as well, but then again Stine Grove is one of a few who can pull it off. Really long tune as well, with all of the melodies offering something different to the previous one. Not perfect, but a damn fine tune.

Comments I had to listen to this at least half a dozen times as I really liked all of the mixes, this and Skylex in particular. This has a very deep feel to it and you have to listen carefully to hear what is being played. I find it really moving, I like the mystery surrounding this; although it can feel a bit stop start. The slowdown is quite weird, odd noises. When the melody starts you get a good solid beat and some nice synths, that's all. It's a deep tune and fairly minimalistic with it. The sound keeps going, driving its point and you will either like this or not. There is something here that just appeals to me and with the Skylex version, which is a lot punchier; this is worth a listen.

Artist Danny Legatto & Laucco
Comments From the Canis Majoris EP, this would be my pick. Quite a subtle tune, with some soft melodies on top of a good solid baseline. The slowdown allows the tune to explore some different ideas and these don't make you lose interest, in fact they give a fairly big clue on what will happen next. I like this build-up, not too slow or long; just about right. Things start and I found things initially confusing as it didn't do what I was expecting and when it did I would have liked a lot more emphasis on the music. This happens towards the end with the beat getting a bit more, but whilst I like what I've heard, I feel a bit let down. Have a go.

Artist Etasonic & Dany G
Comments Pulsating start which soon slows down to a nice melodic piano break. I think this part is a bit long winded as post the piano you get another slow build-up, so you need to be careful you don't get bored. When the tune does get going it's a very pleasant affair, slightly on the cheese side of trance; but nonetheless it sounds good. Lots of highs and a solid beat, but nothing really distinctive that stands out. This is a safe tune, one that you will probably like; but there will be something better.

Artist Delta IV
Comments I like the way this starts, quite reserved; but with enough in the background to get me interested. The slowdown changes the mood quite a bit, it actually improves the track as for a while I was curious as to where things were going. When the synths come in, I get a good idea and it sounds good. When the melody comes in, I really like what I am hearing. All the synths and melodies have come together into a really nice sounding atmospheric tune. It does very much reflect the title of the track and is definitely a tune for the beach (when warmer). Simple, but effective.

Artist Temple One & Sarah Lynn
Comments Love this artist so was pleased to get a new tune of theirs. Lots of atmospheric synths from the off and the vocals drift nicely in and out of the tune, adding a good deal of depth and emotion. The melody comes to life and the tune takes the deep atmospheric trance, adds a beat and you get a real deep soulful tune. You need to listen to the way the melodies change and the tune takes you on an emotional journey of music. Even when the vocals come in, that's the extra bit you need in the melody to change the pace and keep things sounding fresh. Another quality tune, just needed to be a bit longer.

Artist Driftmoon
Comments Great start, lots of energy and I love the vocals (of sorts) that fly around. Tune sets itself up very nicely and not for a fall. The slowdown doesn't do quite that, in fact it keeps the momentum moving well and the way it phases back in is really nice. The tune then starts and you get a real high energy sound, some nice pianos in the background; but an overarching drive on the tempo and sound. I was really getting into this, the deep sounds and the high synths and then it came to an end. I had hoped it was going to come back, but it didn't otherwise this would have done better. Great vibe here and putting to one side the short melody, this is a great tune.

Comments What do you expect from this artist apart from beautiful music? No change with this track, really well put together and very easy on the ears. Bit slow to get going and it doesn't really give justice to what you get in the melody, which is sublime. The chords are all on song and it blends wonderfully well with the beats and tones underneath. It does run a bit on the short side in my opinion and again the end doesn't sound like the melody. Lots of energy and a tune that sounds great.

Comments Been a while since I listened to a Monster track and with this on the Pure label, I will be listening to a few more. It is a tad slow to get going, almost progressive; so keep with it. The tune has a nice synth noise that forms the basis of the track, it's not huge; but it's there and it works. The melody isn't really that, it's just the whole tune working up to a climax, I suppose the title is therefore apt. I like this because it's quite mellow, but still packs a good beat and rhythm. Different, but the nice type.

Artist Jordi Roure
Comments Another good tune from Ennovate, this time with Jordi at the helm. Nice start, beat is solid and there are some nice sounds to get you to the slowdown. This is very melodic, good emotional backdrop with a nice piano accompaniment. Things gets going and the tune has a nice uplifting feeling injected via a very smooth synth. This leads you the rest of the way and whilst initially you don't get anything significantly different, the sound is good on your ears. The second half you get the piano back, which is a nice touch. Odd tune, will work well in a big club; but equally in a more relaxed environment. Nice.

Artist Paul Hided & Airzoom
Comments It took me a while to work out the different with this and the Dub, it's in the slow down. Anyway, this is a different sort of tune; it's got a great beat and then quite an odd feeling on top, but the guitar absolutely rocks this tune. When this slows down, there are some tribal type chants; which I like but do sound a bit off at times. Things get going and the tune just kicks in a big way, driving beats and the melody is just right there. It sounds really pacey, but isn't; although what the hell. You get lots of different tones coming into this to add more here and there and it works really well. This is a very different type of tune, I wouldn't say its pure trance; verges on more commercial dance. This is a great tune.

Artist Blue Horizon & Shyprince
Comments Subtle tune this one. I like the undertone, it has a feeling of wanting to do something nice and in many ways it does. Quite soft on the ears, this is going for emotion rather than impact. The melody is very well put together, although I do think it needs more noise to it. What you have is a good sound, something that is mellow yet a bit dancey; what you don't get is the point. This is a nice tune, it's one of those I need to be in the mood for.
