Title Beyond Doubt Sean Tyas Remix

3/5 : Good
Artist Kai Del Noi
Comments After ?Andromeda? I was looking forward to this. Not as good, but still worthy on any collection. Nice solid beat and fairly early on you get introduced to a nice subtle synth, which sounds almost oriental at times. The melody pushes hard and has that feel good factor about it. It's also nice and long, which works; but I do like my tunes with two quality moments. Bit samey in places as the synth is throughout, rather than getting a taste of something different during the good bits. That aside, I like this tune and its well worth having a listen to as I reckon you'll like it to.

3/5 : Good
Artist Airfire feat. Talla 2XLC
Comments Don't normally like Talla 2XLC, but caught a snippet of this and thought it was good enough to become more familiar with. A really hard beat, but it does get quite subtle later on. Lots of energy and feeling, all bit a tad on the screechy side. If this was a tad slower and not so screechy it would be a top tune. As is, I still like it as there are some nice touches with the voice and slow down near the beginning. A pleasant and welcome surprise.

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Thomas Feijk
Comments This is a very chilled, but funky track. The vinyl consists of 4 mixes, all of which are very good. Reminds me a lot of that ?York? feeling, mellow and laid back; but then the beat keeps the track pumping along very nicely. This is getting a lot of air play by the big boys and rightly so. Well produced and it has that sound that's slightly different to the rest. Good powerful melodies really lift this up to the true club tune that you want to listen. Drags a bit to get going, which is why this doesn't score top marks, but definitely hunt this one down.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Kimito Lopez
Comments A happy tune, with a very simple beat. Nothing special, but just enough to keep you interested. Sounds like it was made quite quickly as its very simple. I like this, but it does deliver any real surprises that lift this above every other tune that is out there. Perhaps a nice warm down tune, but certainly not mainstream.

3/5 : Good
Artist Savannah
Comments A tune that is very much for the summer time, or when you are feeling a bit down and need something happy. A nice melody, with the synths working well to produce a nice uplifting feel; without being too over powering. Two melodies as well, with the second of the two being much more upbeat. A good solid happy tune that you will want to have a listen to, but I'd be surprised if you didn't purchase.

Title Skywalker Original Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist Ekon
Comments Pacey feel to this, the beat has a nice blurred feel to it. The subtle vocals of ?Skywalker? add an air of mystery to this and the drumbeats in places are really cool. Takes a bit to get going and then it isn't very long, which is a real shame. Quicker of the mark and this would be a really cool tune. As it is, it's a good song that moves well and sounds different to the normal batch of tunes, just needs that little touch in places.

Title Days on End Original Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist E Mortal
Comments This is a nice happy tune. Nice happy beat and a nice happy feel all together. Doesn't really deliver a killer trance tune, but it does deliver a tune that's easy going and pleasant to listen to. Nice rhythm in the middle that separates the two melodies, slightly different tempo and feel which works nicely. Piano in places is very subtle and effective. An all round nice tune and worth a listen.

Title For You Sunlounger Remix

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Envio
Comments You can generally trust this artist to produce a melodic Ibiza style tune and this doesn't deviate from that. Very slow to get going, you are almost 4 mins in before you even get a sniff of this tune. There are two melodies here, both are quite sombre and don't really get me going. Very much a Caf? del Mar type record, with a bit more funk. If you want something that's chilled, look no further.

Title Slightly Agravic Sassot Remix

3/5 : Good
Artist Cressida
Comments Good solid tribal feel to this, which for the artist is quite unusual. There's also some quite bizarre breaks which sound like the tune is being played backwards, works really well. The anthem is quite weird in that the synth sort of fades in and out of phase, sounds good though. This track is quite disjointed in that there are lots of different styles here which is why I think it's so appealing. You won't get bored listening to this, trust me.

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Senses feat. RTM
Comments This sounds quite poor when it starts up, but bear with it. This turns into a real gem. The very simple beat is misleading as once this hits it's peak it really rocks. Nice euphoric synth throughout and the melody is really long. Tempo changes to give it that extra push and the whole feel to this is really happy hands in the air stuff. The flip side ain' bad either, so that can' be bad.

Title Sonrisa Original Mix

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Jonas Steur
Comments I heard a lot of raving about this tune, but I don't quite see it. It's a good chilled tune that doesn't really explode on your senses, rather chills them. It is well produced and the simple sound is quite appealing, but it's nothing exceptional. Very much on the DJ Shah style. I suppose if you lump this with the flipside Second Turn, it's an OK bundle. Don't expect the earth; expect something that's mellow and simple.

Title Low Control Original Mix

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Remot
Comments This little tune is courtesy of DJ Ivor from Russia. Starts really well and I was quite excited by the sound as it reminded me of tunes from old. Solid beat with lots of nice noises going on and a really funky bass line. It tries in places to get going, but for some strange reason slows down when it should be lifting off. This sounds like the artist has done the background, beats, etc; but not added those finishing touches that make a tune a good tune. A remix is needed and I reckon with the right touch, could be a real stormer.

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Arouse Dreams
Comments The artist name and title made me curious about this and the beginning was quite tempting. Slow to get going, so leave this for 3 mins and then the good stuff starts. Nice atmospheric synths with that underlying feeling that it's building up to something and that something is quite special. Very euphoric and those hairs will stand up the first few times you hear this. The melody is spot on, has all the right ingredients with some nice subtle extras in the later bars if you listen carefully. Two melodies as well, both good and hard. It does drop the pace rather suddenly between, but soon gets back on the case. Sort the beginning out and this will be a true stunner.

Title Shorebase Original Mix

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Nomad
Comments This needs some serious post production as I think once that's done we may have something quite good. This has a good beat that flows nicely throughout, but the two melodies are quite flat and don't have that punch. The tune for the melody is nice, simple sounding synth; but it doesn't lift up at all. The first time I listened to this I didn't realise as there was nothing substantially different between the tune and the melodies apart from a little drum roll up. This has all the right ingredients to be a good tune, just needs work on the bass and some extra uplifting synths in the melodies to lift it up a notch.

1/5 : Poor
Artist Tim Nokz
Comments I didn't like the Original of this, very bland and lifeless. This version is better, but not much. To be honest, both have no real purpose. Neither have any melody of recognition and they just drag out. This attempts a hard techno sound and it just doesn't work, so instead you get pointless noises over the beat. The beat is good and it sounds well produced, just no life to either of these tunes.
