Comments Quite a hard sounding tune this, pounds away at the beginning with very little else; certainly lets you know what's happening. Oddly the slowdown is in stark contrast to the beginning, very mellow and subtle. Things soon get back to normal; this is a very typical club sound with all the right synths in all the right proportions. Quite epic in places and very triumphant by way of that classic trance sound. Got some nice movement and I like the acid sound bouncing around in the background. Happy tune all the way, especially when you get the uplift in the second half of the melody. Solid.

Comments Every now and then you get a tune where all the mixes are superb, behold such a tune. The build-up for this tune is quite breath taking, the whole sound and feel will awash you with pure pleasure. Listened to this a lot in India and it brings back memories of being on top of a hill in the brilliant sunshine, just chilling. Every mix of this oozes class so you just can't go wrong. This is uplifting trance at its best, it's very best to be honest. Not often I say it, but perfect in every way. Beautiful, stunning, sublime, speechless.

Artist Light & Wave
Comments This is a very nice tune, but keep at it as the beginning is very off putting. Quite early on you get a taste of the melody, which is a brilliant masterstroke. This will suck you in and it's worth being sucked! The slowdown is odd; you get an oboe which too be blunt sounds very depressing and a complete contrast to the beginning. Brilliant by the artist perhaps as the rest just leaps up and down. The rest is history as once the melody launches you will be hooked. Not the crispest sound you'll ever hear, but the fact this has been produced as fast/slow/fast is quite brilliant. A totally different sort of tune and one I'm really enjoying.

Artist Pedro del Mar with ReOrder feat. Fisher
Comments For a vocal tune, this is surprisingly good. I would generally put the artist on the more ambient tunes, but this definitely isn't that. This has a good mix of vocals and beat and they work really well. I have to tip my hat to the artist for getting the balance right. The beat is good and when the melody kicks in the vocals really help lift the mood and tempo. There's also a nice progressive feel to how this unfolds, which is equally good. A very pleasant surprise this.

3/5 : Good
Artist Pizz@dox
Comments Lots of big remixers on this tune, which can often be misleading; slightly so for this. Gets off to a good start, the beat is nice and the in and out vocals work well. It's not a vocal tune so perhaps they were misleading. This is a short tune, which is a shame as when the melody launches you get something that really works. It has that urgent trance feel to things, where the synths and beat are working well in harmony, giving it that extra lift. This ends far too soon and is a real let down, almost like premature ejaculation. Needs a longer version of this mix and we'll really be having great sex, still good.

Comments Now this is an interesting tune. Right at the beginning you would be forgiven to think that it has launched straight into the melody, brilliant start. The slowdown is debatable, but hey you can't get great all the time. The tune then comes back with what you have already heard, but some extra background synths that really make a difference. I have to say this is quite a stunning tune, simple and very effective on every level. One of the better tunes I have heard in a long time. The melodies are wonderfully long so you can really take it all in and then rewind and listen again. Highly recommend you buy this.

3/5 : Good
Artist Myk Bee
Comments I like the happy feel to this. Nice crisp synths and from the off there is a real feeling of something that is going to sound good. The slowdown isn't that slow, but the build-up is fairly long. You get lots of synths and almost a pregnant pause towards the end before this track launches into the melody. This is nice and pacey and has a good bumpy happy feel to it. Initially this doesn't set the place on fire as there's no real distinct sound to lift this that comes a bit late on. Very trance in its nature this tune, a nice happy ensemble of noise.

Artist Sound Apparel
Comments Bear with this, starts quite hard and is a long tune. You get a taste early on that this will turn out OK, all be it sounding a tad cheesy. Long build up to the melody, which lets this down, although not too badly. The melody is actually very catchy, has a squeaky synth riving things along, but helped by one that is more subtle. The pace is quite frantic although not too frantic to put you off. You also get a second helping of tune late on, nice touch this as it sounds like it is winding down, but you get more. This saves the long build up, although a few minutes shorter would have helped. A solid tune and one that has really grown on me.

Artist Manuel Rocca
Comments I generally find this artist to be a hit and miss, but on this occasion he hits the target. This is a nice happy trance tune, good pacey beat and an equally pacey synth line throughout. Get an odd vocal here and there and the melody comes together with a nice summer feeling. This is in essence a very nice uplifting melodic tune, somewhat laid back hence the summer feeling, but still enough in the tank to keep you going. Bit slow to start, which is in contrast to how it ends, perhaps could have been better on that front.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist 7 Baltic
Comments Runs a 138 BPM this and there are times it feels quicker, so intense is this tune. It then slows down and to a large degree loses its way, which is disappointing. So why do I say? Well, the intense start is not how it ends up. You do get a nice beat and a nice simple synth for the main melody, but the passion has gone; which I have to say is quite odd. Perhaps I'm not listening to it right, but the melody needs something extra to really kick start it. It was there at the beginning, just not at the end; when it mattered.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Acid Prophecy
Comments Acid music in the late 80s was my thing, so I often dip into the current stuff to see if it holds up. Generally it doesn't, but I like this one. The vocals in the early part are really good and set the scene as do all the weird synths flying around. I would actually place this as more psy trance to be honest. The acid is more modern, but has a nice pace about it and moves along really well. The vocal saying ‘acid' and ‘power' throughout really adds to the mood, very nice. This is very different to the norm, but was a nice change.

3/5 : Good
Artist Adam Lester
Comments This is a nice happy summer tune, shame that in the UK summer didn't last. I like the fact that this gets down to business early on and you get a nice smooth rolling synth on top of some nice sea breezes and all round happy beach sound. This tune needs to be longer. When the melody kicks in things roll so smoothly and nicely, you just nod your head to the beat; but it doesn't last long enough. I suppose on one hand the ending isn't drawn out (so a positive), but I wanted more. A really nice tune this and one that makes me smile in the early hours.

4/5
Artist Aeden
Comments Originally released 3 years back, Pulsar have got the rights and added some nice new mixes. This has a familiar feel to things mainly through the synth that has been used, almost guitar like. The slowdown works OK, keeps the feeling and pace even though there is no beat. It builds up to a nice melody where the whole piece comes together in a nice way. Lots of energy and passion, but nothing that overwhelms your brain. The sound is clear and crisp with enough changes here and there to keep the tempo and general feel nice and fresh. You are also treated to a really epic second melody where you get an extra uplifting sound that takes it up a notch and this works a real treat.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Johan Ekman
Comments I can't make my mind up on this one. I like the beat and feel to the track,. But I don't like the fact that there's not a lot more substance to it. Got some nice spacey sounds in the background, but at times it sounds like noise and not music. The melody is also far too short and before you know it the tune is beginning to wind up. Lots of potential I this tune, just needs a good remix to bring out all the good bits.

Title Saturday Morning Original Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist Matson
Comments This is a happy, but deep tune and is a particularly nice sound. I like the blend of deep and then the much more pacey aspect; works well. Also the title is so spot on, listen to this and imagine your Saturday morning; this tune is that. The melody is a nice uplifting affair, with the synths giving a nice relaxing sound; but with a nice degree of pace. Does it need any more in the melody, not really; but it does need something. There's a killer synth that would really lift this up a notch missing. What you have is a good solid tune, full of meaning and passion; but not a real killer.
