Anthem Alert!! There aren't many who have done as much for the trance scene as Solarstone, and his go to guy Orkidea has been around just as long (recently joining him mixing the 'Pure Trance' compilation). Where 'Liberation' really triumphs is on the Something Good Vocal mix, a tune that takes you back to the glory days of trance, rays of sunshine come from the arpeggiated catchy lead lines, and the nostalgic vocal sample is a delight. We have had this on repeat since first listen, one of our favourite tunes of the year!!
It's been great to see a somewhat resurgence in what Solarstone himself has penned as "Pure" trance, with his recent compilation and signings across his labels pushing good ol fashion trance music. The equally pioneering, and his right hand man for many years, is Orkidea and for the latest single they dust of 'Pacifique' from the collection, a wonderfully warm and glistening showcase to the sound they are continuing to love and champion. It now comes with a fine selection of fresh takes, all from Finland and as part of his upcoming '20 Remixed' compilation. Although it's tempting to look no further than the brilliant 128 original, some great remixes are on offer with more pace and floor appeal, whilst keeping all the emotion and more importantly purity. For us Beetseekers smash it out the park, that said Antti Rasi, and Chantola's cuts are also worth checking!
