4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Alex Wackii & l5where
Comments Unusual artist names, but nothing unusual about the tune. This has a good summer feel to it, I like the vocals (if you can call them that) which add a nice dimension to things. The melody kicks in with a sweet sounding synth, quite to the point, but good on the senses. The beat reverbs around and the ‘vocal' comes back, plus a subtle piano in the background. You would think it sounds noisy or muddled, but the artists have kept it together well. Annoyingly, mid melody it stops for almost a slowdown and then starts again. This almost loses the flow and in my opinion was not needed and although it doesn't kill the tune, it didn't help it. Otherwise this is a pretty good tune, a few different melodies and ideas, so well done to the artist for trying something different.

Artist C-Systems & Bushi
Comments A very interesting mix of artists and remix duties. This goes into a really weird slowdown, with cut out vocals doing the business, to great effect I would add. The tune soon kicks in, nothing brilliant, but then again not poor either. Has a good vibe, your head will nod approvingly. I think ‘Suncatcher' has slowed it down, similar to most of his stuff. The melody works well, I like the vocals and I like the piano synth that adds a nice extra feeling to proceedings. This goes on for a good period of time as well and with the piano changing it does feel different throughout. This isn't new though, I could grab a dozen tunes that would all be similar (good or bad), but then sometimes normal isn't bad. It's a shame at the end when you think it is going to kick into a new melody and it doesn't, that would have been sweet.

Comments I will admit to being put off by the artist here, sounds like a cheap club name. As tunes go, this isn't too bad. Starts quickly and you get a sense that although it's not going to blow your mind, it will stimulate a bit. Solid beat and a nice synth keep this alive, the tempo changing here and there; with a nice addition of some wailing vocals late on. This is a typical tune that you will hear in the clubs and it will interest you, but past that I'm not too sure. A good effort.

Artist Facade
Comments This is quite a deceptive tune. Starts on a high and then slows down, but at this point the whole feel to the tune changes. You get a piano break kick in, which starts to dictate how things are going to go. This changes into a more recognised synth and the tune is away. Good feeling to this, very crisp and fresh; not too much on the ears. I like the vibe that is produced and the feeling it generates within me. It needs a longer melody though and this is a failing. Things are all good and it starts to fade, just when you are in the zone; a shame.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Jean-Luc Wu
Comments A very progressive tune this, quite slow to get going as well. I like the weird beat at the beginning, sounds like a load of metal drums. When it does all kick in, the sounds is simple and soothing. I can't say much past that, it just keeps things moving along; odd extra noise here and there. This isn't a noisy tune; it's a peaceful one with only a handful of noises at any one time; so far from confusing. It just needs to do more and in less time. There is something here, just comes across a bit unfinished.

Artist Miroslav Vrlik
Comments This could be so much more, which is a crying shame. Good beat throughout and a super catchy melody, but it just doesn't go up that extra notch to really kick ass. Some of you will argue, but hey that's your right. This sounds good, but the melody does go a bit limp on you. The ideas are there, with the piano and guitars; but they don't play a big enough part. This is a good tune that should be a very good tune.

3/5 : Good
Artist Moonsouls
Comments This is a nice deep progressive tune, with lots of feeling and energy (surprisingly). Quite a slow tune, but that's what this is about. The slowdown almost goes into space, with the weird noises and vocals; but fortunately it does come back to life. The mood is simple enough; the synths are very delicate; but effective. The background ambience helps a lot, with simple changes in tone here and there. Put it altogether and it's a nice sound.

Artist MyK Bee
Comments At 138BPM this packs a punch and a few more. The beginning is quite repetitive, but you get a very good idea as to what is coming up. The melody kicks I midway and things start to get quite interesting at this point. Although the synths are quite limited, what you do have is a very piercing and crisp sound of trance. The beat is repetitive, but in this instance it works in helping to deliver what the artist wants you to hear. It's quite pulsating at times, really builds an energy up and keeps you well hooked. You do get a nice little piano towards the end and it's a shame this didn't keep at it for another 30 seconds, it would have been mesmerising. You do however get a second melody, which does hit the spot very nicely indeed. Not perfect, but bloody close.

Comments Been a while since I've heard a track from this artist and certainly worth the wait. Lots of energy from the off, lots of pace and lots of intention to deliver. I like the slowdown as although the beat goes the theme of the tune stays and is then built upon. The beat does come back and with a vengeance. This tune gets lifted up into the stratosphere with an awesome riff, truly beautiful. Don't get me wrong, it's not anything new, but the production of this just oozes class and oozes quality sound. It's time to get then hands in the air with this; the only downside is that it has an ending. Shame on you Jani.

Artist Rishi K
Comments Now I will admit this wouldn't be my first choice label, generally a bit too hard for my taste. This however is very palatable. The more I listen to this, the more I like it. This is one of most basic tunes I've heard in a while, but all there works so very very well.I like the synth that delivers the main riff and the way this is blended with the beat is sublime. This is smooth, very smooth in fact. Rough diamond would be a good phrase and I urge you to have a listen as I think, like me; you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Artist Tempo Giusto
Comments Quite a tech tune this, has that odd edge to it. That aside, the edginess works well and I like the synth you get early on, constantly repeating as this builds up a nice urgency to the tune. This continues for most of the track and throughout the slowdown until the melody launches. This is pretty much what you've already heard, just compiled together to form a single sound. I like it. Has that urgent undertone and the extra synth you get add to this. An all-round good tune.

Artist Digital Horizon
Comments I like the simple approach of this tune. It doesn't try to overload with sound, but the sound you get is crisp and to the point. The slowdown very much introduces you to what is coming, which is a simple enough synth that really delivers a refreshing sound and in many ways different to other stuff that is out there. There are 2 melodies to get your ears around, which are split by an awful interlude; really doesn't work the tune well at all. If this part of the track had been better, this would have been almost perfect. As it is, a very good tune and very good sound.

Artist Estigma
Comments Quite a few tunes and remixes from this artist of late, which is a good thing as they are generally solid numbers. This has a very subtle slowness about it, quite deep if you listen hard enough. I like the piano, which really gives this the emotion that its aiming for. Nice synth in the background helping with the ambience, it's almost sad how it comes across. Takes a while to get really get going, which does drag a bit; but when you get there the melody is nice and solid. Has all the passion of the build-up, but with a bit more impetuous on the beat rather than the piano. The second part of the melody we get the piano back which makes the sound complete. A really nice sound.

Artist Florin Silviu
Comments First time I heard this I really liked it, but my attitude has cooled since. I like the progressive element of this tune, which is almost certainly what appealed first time. Having listened to this more, I still like the progressive side; but it is a bit dreary far too often. The melody is nice, picks the pace up and I like the way the vocals are sampled; gives it a really good feeling. As a tune, this is very well produced and I like what the artists is trying to do. Needs a bit more umph in places, but otherwise a good track.

Artist Leon 78 pres. Northia feat. Hanna Finsen
Comments Vocal tune alert! For this tune, the vocals fit quite nicely and don't ruin the tune at all; in fact they probably enhance it. It's not fast tune at 134BPM, but the intensity in places makes it sound faster. The melody in the middle is full of nice deep sounds, but without the vocals; so the music and vocals have their distinct places. The end of the tune is haphazard in my opinion, not really in keeping with the rest of the tune. Could have been a lot more this, I get the feeling it was slightly rushed; but even saying that it's a worthy addition to your collection.
