Artist Ultimate feat. Irina Makosh
Comments So, vocal alert. Typical Ultimate track, you get that very distinct sound and feeling; which is always a good thing. The breakdown is where the vocals start in earnest and they aren't actually too bad and do fit into the tune pretty well. The melody is again what you would expect, a well put together and thoughtful compilation of sound and even when the vocals drift into this they sound really nice. This has a good length and depth to it as well which has been missing in the past. Bit of a slushy end, but certainly shouldn't go against an otherwise very nice effort.

Comments Getting more and more good stuff from this label. This starts with a real kicking beat and then when it hits the breakdown you get a whole ensemble of euphoric feelings via a slow piano and some extras. Things start to get going, the beat is back and basically what was happening in the breakdown is what you have, but with more power. This continues for quite some time, with lots of extra noises being added, lifting the tempo of the tune as it develops and it works really well. It does run flat a bit suddenly, but by that point you've had your fill. A really nice tune.

Comments This is a great EP. The whole concept of this is pretty basic, but the sound is just one of those that will repeat on you over and over. Great build-up, you get a real flavour for what is coming and the slowdown isn't too long and doesn't detract from the main business. The melody is simple, it dishes out a sound and doesn't deviate too much from it. Some nice low sounds here, accompanied by a simple piano and an ever present chorus. This won't blow everyone away, but there is something in this tune that just grabbed me. Really nice, as is ‘Zenith' of the flip side.

Comments A typical powerful tune that you would expect from this artist. The beginning was a bit too heavy on the bass, but sorted itself out. The melody is just packed of energy and it has that great undertone of the old trance days, just a sound that drives the tune in the right direction. It does go on a bit and then you get a nice uplift of sound in the background, works really well. This is a great tune, I like the whole feeling to it and wish there had been more at the end. A real quality driving sound, full of energy and one that will get your toes tapping.

Artist Sunlight Project feat. Angel Fall
Comments This starts well, has some vocals thrown in for good measure, all be it more ethereal than words. The effect works and this fades into the slowdown when the vocals appear and actually sound pretty good and in keeping with the tune. Great trance synth brings you into the melody, a sound I really love. This continues into the melody and gets it off to an awesome start, lots of power going on here and the change in tempo works a real treat. The vocals drift back in along with an extra piano and what you now have is a real euphoric sound; all the sounds in perfect symphony. At the point you think it's going to end the tune comes to a climax with some more vocals and a bit ore a drum line; really nice. A wonderful tune.

Artist Joer van Ray
Comments Taken from the Skylifted EP, which I would add is definitely worth a listen. Solid start, but the slowdown drags the tune down a bit. You get a nice plucky guitar, but the emotional bit is a bit too vague. Washing over type sounds which eventually morph back into the tune. The melody goes some way to address this, the beat is back and you have a new driving synth to focus on; it sounds OK. The tune changes a bit as it progresses, stays steady to the main sound though. The second half throws a very different sound at you, it's a bit on the screechy side for me and doesn't quite sound like it's the right sound for what you've already heard. It's different though and breaks things up. This has some nice bits and some not so nice.

Artist Emre Yildiz & Sancar Yildirim
Comments This is quite a melodic number, lots of different things going on. The melody is quite a bouncy one, with some high end synths doing most of the damage. I like the driving beat and the other sounds that make the ensemble sound quite refreshing. In some ways, the sound is a bit dated in how it approaches things, but it does sound pleasant. Nice tempo change midway through the melody by introducing a new sound, works well and blends seamlessly. This is a nice tune, different and worthy of your time.

Artist Peter O'ski
Comments This is a funky chillout tune. The beat is very melodic and only runs at 128 BPM, so that gives you an idea of where we're at. I like the tone and mood to this, it's a bit on the dark side; but I could envisage myself laying on the beach late on in the day with this in the background. Some real nice melodies that float in and out throughout the tune, the synths work really well with these. The actual melody itself starts in earnest a few minutes in and the tune just keeps going. A real beach tune, nice tune.

Artist Mike van Fabio & Alex van ReeVe feat. Geert Huinink
Comments Starts strong and powerful, I like the sounds in the background which give the tune its pace; nice. The tune does seem to take an age to get going, which does seem to becoming more the norm these days. Stick with this as once it does, you get a really good sound chucked at your ears. Some really smooth melodies and a great undertone that keep things alive. It also goes on for longer, so there is a benefit. It does need a little something else in here though, no real change through the melody and bearing in mind the wait I am bit torn with this. The vocals are hopeless by the way.

Artist Andrew Cash & DJ Massymo Tn
Comments Good start, as I seem to say for most tunes. The tune does wander a bit though, whilst the sound and feel to the end is constant, it doesn't grab me at any point. When you hit the melody you are expecting something to happen and it simply doesn't, the tune simply wanders along at its own pace. It does have longevity which in many ways saves this for e, but it could have been so much more; a real shame. Maybe next time.

Comments Solid beats until the obligatory breakdown. Here things go all sloppy, you do get a nice piano break and that real heavy emotional sense. This goes on for a bit, it tested my patience; but then things get back into the swing of things. The beat cranks up quite nicely and a whole load of melodies descend on your senses. You get a really good feeling from this, some nice little extra touches here and there. The tune goes from bit too sloppy to something that is very well produced and crafted. Its samey, but in this instance that works; you do need any extra breaks. Nice.

Artist STA
Comments This has a nice trance feel to it. Bit bouncy in places, but also a bit adhoc as well. I like the feel of this, it's got that great trance sound and feel to it, but has something missing. It's quite a hard edge type tune, which is fine I don't always want the softer stuff; but when the tune gets going it's slow to give you something different. This has energy and pace and if that's what you want, then this will work for you at every level. It needs more tempo and a bit more in terms of the delivery. I like the piano towards the end and this was needed a bit more. Hard and fast.

Comments Some nice remixes here, with the Intro piping it for me. Good solid start, really nice purposeful beat and then the slowdown hits you with a very different type of beat. Almost a movie soundtrack and it works really really well, very epic. The tune then gets back on track and delivers a really atmospheric pulsating sound, lots of high end synths being driven by a steady hard beat. The second part of the tune gets a nice uplift with some extra melodies and to be honest this was all that was needed. A tune packed with lots of different sounds and emotions, really nice.

Comments I like this style of music, pounding beat into a real melodic slowdown and then back to business, nice. The slowdown is long I would add now, so stay with it. Once the melody starts you get a real treat of euphoric sounds, crisp synths and a really epic feeling. This drives really well, the beat keeps things moving allowing the melody to flow effortlessly over your ears. My only gripe is that the tune sounds flat in the way it has been recorded, needs more high end synths. A minor gripe I would add.

Artist Subimpact vs. Sergey Shabanov
Comments Great start, a few minutes in and the pace is all up and happy, really like that. The slowdown does exactly that, but in a real nice way and the synth that comes in during the build-up is a real classic sound. The move into the melody is seamless due to the well crafted slowdown. The feel here is quite a good one, very euphoric and very mellow at the same time. The second half things really do take off, lots of energy and passion and the tune is truly alive. I like the underlying synth throughout and even the oddly weird oboe sound. It does sound a bit confused in places, but a really nice tune and sound.
