Review: A true (and somewhat rare) success story of the, producer-ran-record-label within a large empire, is John O'Callaghans Subcultre (via Armada). Over the past few years JOC's hands on approach has kept a perfect balance between new, and established talent with just the right amount from his own studio. This March collection is prime example, featuring; Ost & Meyer, Gareth Emery, KhoMha, Super8 & Tab, plus the Jorn Van Deyhnhoven remix of 'The Real You' from Dark Matters, and the banging Heatbeat cut of Parker & Hanson - 'Afterthought'. 16 full length tracks for just L7.49!!
Review: Ukrainian youngster Omnia was without doubt one of the breakthrough stars of last year, with a string of big releases on the biggest labels out there and culminating in landing in the top 50 of the coveted Top 100 poll. He continues to let the music do the talking with this amazing track for Markus Schulz label. The instantly memorable lead line will be going around your head for days, not to mention destroying any dancefloor you unleash it on. Its bright, and full of life with a the track name perfectly reflecting the vibe. The beats are somewhat tougher than many of his previous productions fitting with the punchy melody. Already featured on Armins ASOT 2013 comp, this looks set to go all the way.
Review: Andy Moor's AVA Records (under the Armada umbrella) continues to deliver some of the very best vocal tracks around, and this from upcoming Ukraine based producer Omnia is an absolute gem. Deep, and progressive yet with plenty of energy to keep the floor moving. Melissa Loretta's emotive vocal (and in fact the all-round production) glows like a summer sun and will transport you to the beaches of Ibiza in an instant. Dan Stone ups the tempo on his mix, although surprises with a less uplifting approach than we're used to. There isn't much you could do to improve the Original though, and that's where all the beauty truly lies. One of the finest vocal trancers we have heard this year!!
