Title Falling Original Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist Kerris
Comments Kerris has been sending me tracks for many years and I am so pleased that he has got this released on such a big label. I really like the beat in this, it gets going right from the beginning. It's got a solid line, catchy upbeat tune and a nice overall feel. This is a vocal track, which I don't always like and this case the vocals don't help things. The vocals are good, powerful voice and meaningful; but there is too much. If you take the JPL Mix, the vocals are a lot less; but I don't like the feel to the tune. If I could have a mix of the 2 or even better a dub, then I would score this higher. Having heard Kerris from years ago, he has come so far and this is a good tune. Vocals will suit a lot of people and as I say, they are good. This has a fresh sound, give it a listen and judge for yourself.

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Daniel Kandi and Phillip Alpha
Comments I have to admit I've become quite partial to Mr Kandi's work recently, I feel he has gone back to basics rather than churn out the monotonous stuff. This has a great subtle start, very melodic in its build up and a nice entry into the main melody. Very upbeat, but not too overpowering; which is what appealed to me. There is a nice synth in the background and just enough accompanying noise. The melody is nice and long, with a few uplifts in tempo; all very subtle, but enough so that you notice. A very pleasant tune, on the melodic side of trance; but nice nonetheless.

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Arctic Moon
Comments Real pumping tune this, fast and pacey right from the beginning. It's the mix of the fast bit with a really nice euphoric piece in the middle. Really great synths and an equally good piano break, just to really mellow things down. This then lets loose into a really nice trance tune, one that will really get you going. Nice main anthem, two bits with the second half adding some extra lift to keep things moving along. Could have done with a bit more of the main stuff, but that aside this is a tune that really appeals to me. It's fast and slow, merged together to form a great tune.

3/5 : Good
Artist Eco
Comments This is quite different to what I normally go for. Much more on the tech side of life, but it has a nice undertone which really stood out when I heard. I like the way the main synth repeats itself, without getting boring; which is quite hard to do. There is s really soft piano in there as well, listen hard and you will hear it. This is a nice beach tune, something for a warm sunny day. It's a happy uplifting affair, quite fresh and different. Nice change of pace.

3/5 : Good
Artist Jaden Merrick
Comments This tune has been coming out for ages, or it seems that way. Oddly enough when I heard it towards the end of last year it sounded better, I think the wait hasn't helped in this case. Anyway, this is still a solid tune; especially the main melody. That really pounds away with a vengeance and has a great riff to it. Solid and powerful, fast and furious; but slow to get into top gear. It's one of those that keeps teasing and in the end you start to get bored and then it hits you. Don't get me wrong, this is a good tune and the other mixes are worth a listen.

3/5 : Good
Artist Leon 78
Comments The Original of this is a good tune as well, so you are getting double the value on this one. This has a nice twangy feel to it, have a listen and you will know what I mean. Lots of powerful synths, really do pump out that euphoric sound; in a big way. The main melody has a nice feel to it, plus there's a piano break added to give it that extra lift. The downside is that the main bits are too short and there's too much either side. Both songs are different, but suffer in the same way. Two good tunes, just lacking that killer touch.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Paul Stoneheart
Comments This is one of those that doesn't sound as good second time around. At the beginning there are some great vocals, very reminiscent of the 90s group ‘Deep Forest'; I think this is what I heard and really liked. OK, so let's not get too much on a downer as the tune is fairly good. Solid beat and a nice undertone that moves it along very well. The main melody is punchy and has a good synth, but that's about it really. It's quite short the melody as well, with no extra bits to lift the tempo. Have a listen, it will appeal to some, listen to it all though as you may fall into the same trap I did.

3/5 : Good
Artist Meridian
Comments Good vibe to this. Nice beat to start with, quite pacey and with purpose. Slows right down prior to the main melody and goes all melodic on you. It's quite nice actually, very easy going on your ears. This slowly builds up, as you would expect and then let's rip into a nice melody of sound. It's a solid tune, lots of noise and some nice ‘vocals' in places just to add to things. The melody has 2 parts, with the second bit slightly different; but not hugely. As I said at the beginning, this has a nice happy feel to things and is worth a listen.

Title Gate 4 Hoyaa Remix

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Angel Ace
Comments This is quite a mellow tune, bearing in mind the artist. I don't like the reverbed vocals in this; they don't work and hinder the track in my opinion. That aside, the tune works quite well. I like the idea, the beat works well and the main melody has a good feel to it. That said, the tune is quite fragmented and a bit stop/start which along with the vocals don't help the cause. This could have been a lot better, but it may appeal to some of you.

3/5 : Good
Artist Binary Finary & Trent McDermott
Comments I will listen to any track by the legendary Binary Finary and please trust me that this mix is the only one worth your attention. Pounding beat and a really pumping melody, that just about sums this up. The melody has a nice uplifting undertone to things, but all in all this is very much what you would expect from the artist and more importantly the remixer. It is quite long with only the melody really delivering a clear sound, but it is definitely worth a listen; but only this one.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Sophie Sugar & Tom Colontonio
Comments Been a while since I've heard anything from Sophie which I've (almost) liked. This isn't a stunning tune, it's a simple trance tune that just does enough to get you interested. All the right ingredients are hear, but the ratios are all wrong. Good beat, so off to a good start. The main anthem is also really good and there are two of them, BUT they are so short. Just as you start to get into the tune, it stops and you have to wait. This is just criminal and a crying shame as this could (and should) have been so much better. As per my first sentence, not often I find stuff from Sophie that I (almost) like; the search continues.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Frank Waanders
Comments Hhhmmm, bit plip plop this and this will either work or not depending on your mood. This is a very simple tune, I doubt there was much work needed to put this together to be honest. You get to the main chorus and you probably won't really notice as it doesn't do very much. You get a nice feel to things, bouncy would be a good word to describe; but there's no bass or depth to this. It does drone a bit, but on the other hand the drone doesn't sound awful. This sounds like something a bedroom DJ has put together, which is perhaps a tad harsh; but hey …..

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Mike Koglin
Comments It was the Original of this I heard first and was desperate that there was a good remix and fortunately there was. This has a fantastic main synth throughout, which sounds really uplifting and ‘happy'. You know what is coming, a really sweet chorus that bounces along with some nice synths and a good pace. All this is wrapped together in a nice production of sound that will have you nodding along to it quite happily. Quite an infectious synth this, something that works really well by grabbing your attention. If there would have been 2 melodies, this would have been a stunner. For now, it's just bloody good!

3/5 : Good
Artist Rinat Shabanov
Comments This is so different to what I normally like, so be prepared. I heard this in the early hours and found it really easy listening on the ears. Very simple beat and with just a few synths, this delivers quite a big sound. This isn't what I would call a club tune unless it's towards the end of the night. Very relaxing, very soothing and very easy going. This really appealed to me and I still like it now, nice and very different.

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Stonevalley
Comments Fresh sounding tune this. I like the way it starts with a nice purposeful beat and a bit of synth work to keep you interested. Usual break from things before the main melody kicks in. A solid sound, using the classic trance type synth to really get a noise in your head. Got some very nice subtle synths working in the background, which add nicely to things. The tempo is upped with some extra noise in places, again this works well in just delivering that little something extra. It's all the little extras that I really like and they make such a big difference. The artist has clearly thought about what he wanted to deliver and it works.
