Review: Silver surfer trance master Solarstone returns to Tiesto' Black Hole label with Island, a new studio album that's right on time following a succession of hash-inspired LPs and last year's One. Maintaining his quality form in tracks like "Take Me On Your Flight (Island version)" with its sweet vocal, slightly left of field keys and techy breakdowns, Solarstone proves once again he's a master of the trace craft. With exotic breakbeats and neo classical feedback making it into "Frontier" (featuring the venerable Super-Frog Saves Tokyo & Ian Urbina), tribal themes and oriental motifs, alongside baerlic licks of guitar in "Summer Fills The Sky" coalesce into a soundtrack of grandeur and grace when its main theme hits. For the more contemplative numbers look to "Tied" and "Twilight" with touches of folk, melancholic pop and two stepping rhythms defining "Heal My Broken Heart" - and with more to be discovered, Island, by a country mile, is one 2020s best trance releases. Life's a beach.
