Comments Another new label that is growing on me in terms of the quality music it's producing. Good bouncy start and before you know it things slow right down to a few noises here and there. The mood is kept lurking in the background and some extra sounds are introduced into the mix, along the tunes theme; sounds OK. Tune comes back to life and it's that happy bouncy feel again. There isn't anything that is pulling at your ears in a major way, but the tune does have a likable aspect to it. Melodies stay a bit flat, again come back to the wow moment; but it keeps going at a nice pace and kept a smile on my face. Nice little uplift late on, nice tune.

Comments This is a really beautiful track. The start is solid and gives you a sense of real purpose and the slowdown is where all the magic begins. This builds up with some awesome soothing synth, with a touch of vocal and then launches into a gorgeous culmination of sound. This is just euphoria and it's very best, this will lift you all the way up and then gently bring you back down. I love the subtleness of this tune, whilst all together it has so much power and dimension, what you get is bite sized. A must have.

Comments I like this artist and I like this label, so lots of expectations, I wasn't disappointed. Good solid beat from the beginning, as you would expect and then the usual slowdown. This is nice, sets the scene a bit more and has a nice lead up to the main anthem which launches with a real power bomb. The tune really delivers a great sound, it has an urgency about it and the whole ensemble is wrapped around that. It does full short in delivering this though, I thought there was more coming; but it kind of drifted out. That aside, a tune I like.

Comments Oh wow, what a tune from Pulsar. This is one of the freshest tunes I've heard this year, has everything I like and a whole load more. This gets down to business really early with a real powerhouse sound and vibe and then you get a slowdown! This is kind of odd and it stays on the edge, just without a beat. It then starts back up, but not to the fanfare you are expecting it's almost a pre-anthem build up. Not long after this goes mental again and that's a seriously good mental. The tunes and synths here are just sublime and the way it takes you along will make it all stand up on end. A tune that by title I was sceptical of, but by sound is simply brilliant.

Comments Navid has been sending me tunes for a few years, so I was thrilled to see him get a formal release and it ain't a bad offering. This has a great beat, really drives home and gets you moving. The slowdown introduces what turns out to the main synth for the track and it's a nice way to get things moving. The tune starts and you get a really good feeling of what is to come, but it doesn't. The tune focuses very much on a build-up type feel without actually launching into whatever was being built up to. I was somewhat disappointed by this as I thought it was going to explode on my ears. It does try, but it's kind of lost in what you've already heard. All aside, great beat and I do like the synth and composition of the track, so looking forward to the follow-up.

Artist Sean Mathews
Comments Love the way this starts, you get a great beat and a synth in the background that just adds a real eerie feel to things. Don't get me wrong, this isn't a dark track; but it has a great undertone. You get the odd vocal (dare I call it that), which I think is supposed to give a bit of a Middle East feel, well .. kind of. The slowdown then brings into play a piano break of sort with the beat nicely in the background and to some extent you do get that eastern feeling. The tune lets rip and it wasn't quite what I was expecting, it had a bit more power to things and then brought in the noises from earlier on; worked really well. I wish it had of done a bit more, it has a great sound; but loses the edge a bit too soon and then starts to wind down very quickly. Good, but a shame.

Artist Utimate & Moonsouls
Comments It does seem that almost every track from this label is pure quality and this is no different. Super funky start, with that beat and sound that has become some stereo typical of the group, but it works. This is a partnership that clearly does work, never gets boring as the sound is just right. The slowdown doesn't last long and before you know things are warming. The pace in which the tune starts to flow is really easy going and the sounds are very progressive in how they are delivered. The whole feeling here is euphoria, all the right notes are hit and all the right feelings are generated as a result. The downside is that it ends too soon, should have continued with the vibe; but that's me being selfish as usual.

Artist Sunlight Project feat. Danny Claire
Comments OK, vocal tune alert, but vocals that work. Tune starts with the vocals and straight away you can hear they sound in place, which is always a good start. The slowdown is where you get them more and in this tune they sound good and add a nice extra depth to the tune. The slowdown is very melodic so be prepared to expect something similar in the melody. This starts slowly with an off sounding synth, you will get used to it. The melody is a bit happy clappy, but there is something really nice about it. I like the happy feeling and the vocals don't appear as expected, which I was surprised at. This is a really nice tune, nothing too trance heavy, just a happy tune to listen to and think of good times.

Comments I like the oriental feel to this, the tones a few minutes in are really nice; remind me of tunes from the 90s. This doesn't sound as fast as it is and in all fairness is a bit slow to get going. Once you hit the melody things do warm up and that oriental edge comes back into the fore and it works a real treat. The tune has some good length to it as well, so whilst it doesn't vary too much, what you get works. This is a great tune to really get lost in, lots going on and one you will go back to a few times.

Artist Sound Apparel
Comments Starts with a strong and powerful beat and then fades to some simple synths for the slowdown. Quite melodic when you get there, some nice drum work in the background; sounds a bit Braveheart. Does get a bit too dreary and then continues to be dreary, you have to wait until near on 6mins in for things to get going. It starts to get going and you get a sample of what is coming, so hold on. This lets loose with sound in a big way, there is a whole lot of it going on. This is emotional trance and some, no holds barred. It actually works really well, really gets the senses going and has a really good uplifting tone. Awful beginning, but the ending is worth the wait.

Comments I like the start to this, it has something about the beat that really teases you. The melodies in the background repeating over and over give this real imputes. The slowdown is quite that, what you get is a really nice synth melody building up to the main section. This then gets going and takes you on a journey upwards and quickly. The tension in this tune is immense, it will have you gripped. This is real superhero material when the good guy is coming in to save the day, love it. This stops for a bit and then tries to continue which kills the mood, although not totally. A really cool track.

Comments Wasn't this the name of the character from ‘Battle of the Planets'? As for the tune, good start and when it gets to the slowdown things start to get interesting. The ethereal voices work really well and the synth work, along with a nice piano break; do tempt the tastes. You then get a very solid and powerful sound, very in your face and very outstanding. This is slowly built upon using those voices in the background, which really add to the power of this. It then gets going with a piano, although you will have to listen hard. It's quite relentless on your ears and is just missing that killer uplifting moment.

Artist Ikerya Project feat. Muhib Khan
Comments I do struggle with this artists, but this track is more hit than miss. A powerful bassline from the off and some nice hard edge dance sounds. This isn't an emotional tune, it's goes for power and impact over the ‘sloppy stuff' and in many respects it works. The melody continues on the power theme, continuing to bang away with everything in the tracks arsenal. That pretty much describes proceedings here. If you like trance quite hard, then you will find this quite appealing; the high end synths are pretty cool in the melody. If you're looking for something relaxing, not this.

Comments A fairly new label for me who are kindly sending me promos, so thank you for that. This is a tune you will need to listen to a few times as its quite different in places and you need to listen to them all again and again. I like the breakdown, you get a teasing vocal and a taste of the synths to come. When the melody starts in earnest, the synths simply come to the fore and get an extra emphasised beat underneath to push the track along. The vocals don't happen, which often is a good thing; but without hearing I couldn't say. Whilst this has all the right characteristics I like in a tune, it is lacking that uplifting moment when you sometimes just cum in your pants. That said, as a first outing on this label I'm looking forward to future offerings from this artist.

Comments From the moment this starts you know you're in for a real treat. At a few mins in when the piano break starts and that nice uplifting background, you are fully hooked. The breakdown builds in a super teasing manner, the artist pulls out all the stops and starts the tune really rocking. Just before things kick into life the drumbeat comes to life, which is a masterstroke. The rest of the tune just bounces along with splendor, it does pause momentarily here and there which I'm not too sure about; but the whole vibe is just spot on. Great epic melodic sound this.
