Comments Almost every tune that comes from this combination of artists or the Infrasonic Pure label, I like and this is no different. This is a beautifully crafted and sublime outing into melodic trance music. Great intro and the breakdown introduces you to the tone of the track in terms of the synth quality. Lots of emotion here, without all the screechy bits. The main melody starts a bit subdued, you get a good beat and the synths you've heard so far; plus some here's and there's in the background. It has you hooked though and you are wanting more and that comes in the second part. It cranks up with some extras that just take this up a notch, but then incredibly starts to end; just as things were beginning to really rock. A killer ending of something that could have been perfect.

Comments I love the way this starts. Has that classic trance sound to things and those eerie ethereal voices in the background, really nice. The breakdown goes all weird on you, really good weird I would add; some real good chants and it helps build the anticipation. The tune then starts and it's a lot punchier than you were expecting, it's quite a different sound since the tune actually started. It fairly repetitive and it isn't until the second part that you feel the tempo lift ever so slightly. It does need a killer synth with this, something that makes it stand out. The recipe is good, just needs an extra Michelin star.

Comments There isn't much this guy does that I don't like and this is no exception. Got a great start and the slowdown just oozes class, the build-up is really nice. When the melody kicks in you are already hooked, but it just simply blows you away. The beat is wonderful and the synths just over you like water. This is John Sunlight doing the biz on remix duty. Very upbeat, not too heavy; just right. The second half continues as before and to be honest it doesn't matter; this tune works at every level. I you want to listen to a tune that will make you stop and listen, get those hairs standing up; here it is. Brilliant.

Comments New label and a pretty good first outing, with a pretty good up and coming artist. This is what I would term a simple tune, the beat is solid and the melodies on top are simple and uncomplicated. When this works it can be extremely powerful as you have time to just listen to the tune rather than all the noise around the outside. This touches all the right nerves for me, it's a tune that is pleasing on the ears and moves at a pace that I enjoy. The melody is a bit on the short side and could have been longer, but what you have here is a nice tune with a label and real potential.

Comments A good sound from Pulsar, a sound I like on this label and a sound they manage well. I love the guitar when used in dance music, but it has to be used right and here it is. The slowdown you get a beautiful guitar rendition and then this phases out back into a very melodic build up. The tune then comes back together with a weird reverb type sound before the guitar comes back into play. At this point you are totally sucked in and the sound you are now getting is truly blissful on your senses. The atmosphere just keeps building and you are just sold. This doesn't go mad with sounds, it just goes mad with what you have. Even towards the end with the more pronounced drum beats, brilliant. You then get a really nice let down, again with different sounds and ideas, brilliant. Overall, brilliant.

Comments I have to say, an uplifting mix on a dark label; that intrigued me. This is a real ground pounder, quite relentless at that as well. The slowdown, if you can call it that; brills a different type of pace and I was again curious as to what the tune would do. It lets loose a nice hard beat, the backdrops are very fluoro in origin, a real fave of mine. What I had hoped would happen was that this would keep going, perhaps with a twist here and there; but it doesn't. This really does whet your appetite, but in my opinion ends quite weakly having had such a good start.

Comments Strange sounding start this, keep with it. The slowdown goes in a different more ambient direction, a feel I really liked and in complete contrast to the beginning. I like the smoothness of the sound at this point and when the synths start, the feeling is great. The melody then comes in and you have a very odd sound, it's a nice one; but there is something here I'm not keen on. I like the drive of the synths and I also like the longevity of the sound. There's a nice uplift towards the end as well, adds a nice extra dimension, but throughout there's a nagging. I think it's the melody not being totally clear, it's a bit off in its sound that gives this a harshness that's not needed. Odd, but nice.

Comments Interesting tune this. Good driving beat and some very nice melodies, not too many of them; but what you get works. The slowdown is what you would expect, but the main melody isn't. The first half is a warm up and it's almost a real tease as you need to let it run for things to really take off and they do. The sound is really good, the beat keeps the pace and you get some melodies here and there that deliver the atmosphere. It works really well, all be it quite subtlety. Needed to be a longer tune and a more graceful exit, but very nice.

Comments This has a really nice undertone to it, gives the tune some real depth. I like the way in which the melodies build up quietly, tempting you with what might be coming. The slowdown gets pretty deep, but bear with it as you will start to hear what's coming and it's worth the wait. The melody uses a very classic trance sound, haven't heard it for a while so I immediately liked it. The tune goes for that driving feeling and in many ways it works a treat, but it does lack a really hard driving melody to keep things alive. You do get this late on, but the tempo of the tune drops off underneath so it loses its impact; but a very nice try. There are a lot of good things here, a tune I like.

Comments From the Feel Your Heart EP, which is a good all-rounder I would add. I like where this track takes you, solid beat and a good underlying melody. So with all the nice bits, why doesn't this totally rock my world? I like the melody, but its missing a major sound, something that will knock your socks off and without this things do seem a bit on the flat side. Don't get me wrong, this is a good tune, but the artists could have delivered a whole lot more. The EP is a good one and I do urge you to have a listen as the quality is there.

Comments From one of my fave labels, this is a quality tune from a quality artists. What I like here is the simplicity, nothing noisy; just a good crisp sound. Great beat, lots of purpose and takes you through the whole journey. Good piano breaks in places, to soften the mood, but not the tune. The melody in the middle is sweet and fresh, great sound; lots of power; but also lots of passion. The blend of this tune is great and that's what I really like. A beautiful sound.

Comments I like the way this starts. Powerful beat into a blissful slow down, the piano break here is real nice and the way the synths fade in and start the build-up is real nice on the ears. Things get going and it seems quite quick, that's down to the tune being on the short side (shame). Nice crisp sounds in the melody, a real purpose is generated with good tempo and a nice drive. I like the feeling of the tune, quite epic at times. There's not a lot going on so you can simply listen to what the artists is doing, which is good. It is short, but it's not all about the size.

Comments This is quite a techy type tune, big bass line and some rather quirky sounds. This doesn't slowdown too much, it keeps the pace pretty well. All the quirk is still there and to some degree I'm not too keen. When things get going the tune takes a different direction, keeps the beat; but starts on a more epic journey. The synths in the background drive this well and in the second part you get a piano break which lifts the tune up a bit more. It does sound a bit repetitive and having listened to this a few times, it does sound a bit samey. That aside, a good beat with a purpose.

Comments Loving the title of this tune, as well as the artist. The beginning is a great trance sound, a bit repetitive; but the passion and sound really do hit a sweet spot. The tunes slows briefly, but it's not long before you are back in the sound. What you get is a bit unusual, whilst I really like the feel of this; it does seem a bit dull in terms of the production. The second half you get that uplift and this helps with that. The tune is really beech like, hence the title; soothing in some respects. Whilst I like all the tones, this does need a little something to make it stand out. A good tune, not a great tune.

Comments A good progressive start with this one, nice. Things go all slow and then the music starts again. The build-up is real good and the sound in the melody is really quite moody, with a real subtle undertone. It's really driven, almost a classic trance sound in that this is what you're getting; like it or lump it. I like it, precision beats and synths; makes good sense to me. The length is good as well, so you can really get lost in the sound, again that works for me. This is a simple tune that delivers a hard sound, nice.
