Title The Calling Jonas Steur Remix

3/5 : Good
Artist Solar Stone
Comments I must admit to being worried that I wouldn't like this. I bought this first time round in 1997 and am always a bit apprehensive when good tunes are re-released. This holds its head above water, although only the Jonas Steur effort. Moves along well and has the feel for the classic, but with a nice fresh beat and funky synth. Bit short in the middle, but a pretty good tune nonetheless and one that would add something different to any set.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Viframa
Comments This is different, which is what probably appealed to me. There's a really weird noise in here, one that sounds different; but one that does get a bit annoying. The anthem is quite crazy, pacey beat with the crazy synth over the top. It then calms down a bit, only for it all to happen again. Not sure where I stand with this as it does depend on my mood. Over all it's not a bad record, one you should listen to because it's certainly different. This is a re-release, originally came out in 2004, which could account for the sound.

3/5 : Good
Artist Duderstadt & Anita Kelsey
Comments I have to admit to being intrigued by this combination. A hard trance artist and club like vocals, but anything is possible. A really nice feel to this. Quite passionate in places and the synth that starts it all off comes across really well, all be it a tad on the cheese side. Moves well and has a nice tempo uplift mid anthem, the vocals even work quite well. I say that, this is the Dub mix; but they add their bit to the whole feel. There are two anthems, both very similar; but both very welcome. This is a simple, but effective tune. It was a shame all the other mixes were so pants !

Title Beautiful People Original Mix

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Andre Visior & Dark Moon
Comments I like the beat in this, has a guitar come techno edge. Quite in your face, but subtle enough not to be at the same time. The main noise is also a bit different and with the tech sound adds to a nice sounding ensemble. It's a shame this doesn't really do much else. What is there is OK, it's just a tad bland and the same throughout. Needs a real uplifting synth in the middle to get the toes going, back alas it isn't there. I would have a listen as this will appeal to some more than others.

3/5 : Good
Artist Emotional Horizons
Comments This is one of them I heard in the early hours and really liked, but isn't a peak time tune. It's nice and mellow, best way to describe it. There are two melodies, both of which are very relaxed. There is a guitar in the background which really does mellow this down. There's enough funk and pace to keep this alive enough that you'll listen. If you want something easy on the ears, that sounds good; have a listen to this.

3/5 : Good
Artist James Wood pres. Wandii
Comments You have to wait for this to kick in. Good solid trance sound, with a pacey beat in the background. Once flowing, this is a good example of progressive trance; not at it's best, but at it's simplest. This just throws a beat at you and then builds upon it, without an annoying pause. This could be a minute or so longer allowing the melody to really let rip, but it fades off. There's a funky drum break at the end, which is cool. Definitely worth a listen.

3/5 : Good
Artist Sequentia vs Amphiby
Comments A simple enough tune with a simple enough sound, seems to be a lot of this around at the moment. There's a trumpet effect for this one, which is different and sounds OK. The melody is a happy affair, with some nice uplifting synths in the background and the 'trumpet? in the fore. The beat is solid enough that the tune moves well and doesn't loose and tempo. It does suffer from being a 1 melody track and the one that is here is average at best. The whole tune sounds good, but as with so many tunes this could have been so much better. The other mixes of this are pretty good, the Sonika one in particular.

5/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Muse
Comments I never thought the day would come that Muse would be on the site, but here it is. What a tune. I quite like the album ?Black Holes and Revelations?, I wish they could remix it like this as it would be totally awesome. This is a fantastic tune. The beat totally brings to life the sheer brilliance of the guitaring in this track. It just oozes quality and a totally fantastic club tune. It's a shame this probably won't get an official release as it absolutely rocks. The sheer boldness of funking up Muse makes this a classic in itself, but the outcome is unbelievable. I spent an entire hour on the train listening to this over and over, awesome.

3/5 : Good
Artist A98
Comments I had to listen to both sides of this several times to come up with a fave and this only just manages it, both sides are good. Nice anthem, with a cool synth on top of a nice beat. Other noises are thrown in for good measure, plus a funkier drum line later on. This is a solid club tune that everyone will like as it's quite middle of the road. Either side will please as they?re both of equal goodness.

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Super8 & DJ Tab
Comments This is quite a different direction for these artists. Their stuff of late has been quite bland, this is quite deep and dark; but has a nice funky feel. The vocals are quite haunting and work well, but it's the melody that rocks. The beat is quite tech, the synths add to this and with the whole dark feel it just has that never heard before feel. You just have to listen to this, especially the second anthem as that really goes up a notch.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Dark Albedo feat. Kerie Geni
Comments I'm not a huge fan of vocal trance, but this had a good professional feel to it when I first listened. The vocals in my opinion really don't work and drag this down. There are times when they don't even seem to be in keeping with the beat. That aside, this has potential as either a dub or a remix with less vocals. The beat is nice and crisp and the synth work is subtle, yet effective. Bits are added in throughout just changing the feel enough to notice. Has promise, but I feel this aimed too much at the domestic charts rather than a classic underground trance tune.

Title The Future Original Mix

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Kerris
Comments I reviewed another Keris track in December and this is slightly more my taste. This still has that quite pacey feel to it, but is more subtle about it. I like the way this moves and the way that the main melody is constant throughout. There are some nice touches synth wise near the end when it sounds really quite euphoric. This needs more bass and a harder bass line to really bring the sound to the forefront. At present it sounds a bit tinny and needs some serious post production. Get that right and we could have a winner.

Title When Stars Align Benya Remix

3/5 : Good
Artist Matthew Hoag feat. Marcie
Comments This reminds me of ?Southern Sun? by Oakenfold, well the vocals do. That tune is one of my faves, so you are up against it already. This doesn't actually do that bad. Struggles a bit to get started and then the mid tune pause really does slow it down. Out the other side is a nice tune. The vocals by this point are nice and sparse, whereas a bit heavy at the beginning. Simple beat and simple synths which I always like. I think if the beginning was re-arranged a bit and there was a bit more uumph / beat rather than just synths / vocals; then it would work so much better. Marked on potential should a remix be done again.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Yans
Comments This has a bedroom sound to it. Bit basic, but quite catchy in places. A nice beat and a nice melody throughout, but this suffers from sounding pre production. This needs more bass and / or a harder undertone and the main synth needs beefing up as it sounds a bit whinny. It's a nice sound, but it's quite constant and does irritate because it doesn't have any real depth. Got potential, as many do in this section; just needs work.

3/5 : Good
Artist A/B Project
Comments A typical club tune this. Take all the elements that make a tune a success, blend them all together and this comes out the end. Quit a hard tune in places, the beat really gets laid down on your senses. Good long anthem and there's a nice change in tempo midway through it, gives it that little extra lift. There's some other good mixes of this as well, so it's would be worth having a listen as one of them will take your fancy I'm sure.
