[ASOS] NeverLastStanding – Your Friend (Paloris & Ponyman Remix) | Future Bass

Nothing makes me happier than when a song can utilize a speech seamlessly in a song.
Twilight’s coronation speech is the perfect fit here both contextually and emotionally. Intricate and bright vocal chops melded with a vibe-y and mellow bassline, the speech opening the track, just brings about that sense of joy and longing and really plays with the heartstrings! One thing I love about this specific style of Future Bass is how laid back, yet powerful it is! Fun samples, but you can FEEL the energy in the mix, yet its not in your face. I enjoy the original a lot for its high energy and pumping beat and this takes it in a whole new direction! A State of Sugar just keeps on supplying the goods and this box of chocolate has many surprises in store. You can check out the rest of A State of Sugar’s new album, ‘Chocolate’ right here!

[Equinity] Evgeniy Doctor & GrazySmash – Invasion | Psytrance

Evgeniy and Grazy are two rather impressive trance artists I’ve come to love in the fandom, and what could make it better? Sitting them down together to collaborate together for Equinity’s third album, ‘Breach’! An orchestral thematic opening announcing the arrival of the army blends seamlessly into the concussive force of psytrance, a wide soundstage and lots of varying sounds carried along the beat, we even have some nice little switch ups and breakdowns which are done incredibly smooth and the builds alone are a treat to listen to! Nice little touches of big room add some flare to an already gorgeous beat and what can I say other than “You need to hear it for yourself!”

SP1TF1R3 & 4mplitude – Insomnia | Psytrance / Dubstep

Psytrance is always a genre I appreciate, especially when its mixed in with another genre like dubstep. This one is short and sweet with an ominous tone and does a very good job at allowing the tension and energy to ebb and flow, the varying rhythms between genres is always a nice addition in my book and its especially well done here, utilizing every second of its length to bring about an interesting evolution of the song!

[ETC] Enuna – Vitamin D | Gabber

Hardcore isn’t usually my forte, but Enuna knows how to deliver! Starting out with nothing more than a drum beat and a repeating sample of “Sunshine, sunshine ladybugs awake!”,  this immediately comes in crisp and hard with very intricate and subtle textures. The energy and concussive force doesn’t let up and constantly evolves and progresses and you definitely don’t want to miss this or the rest of the album for that matter!

PinkiePieSwear – Flutter Wonder (UnderpΩny Remix) (Mal Universe Redux) |Uplifting Trance

 

It’s nice to see such an old face again in the fandom! UnderpΩny has released a redux of PinkiePieSwear’s classic “Flutter Wonder” with those nostalgic soothing pads and melodies of the original with a grooving, rolling progression. It’s a very welcome and long awaited send off, and its really nice seeing such a relaxing song remixed in a way to give it a newfound energy while staying true to the original form. An excellent uplifting vibe that hearkens back to the olden days, this one is a treasure!

MrMehster & Tw3Lv3 – Work In Progress (Power Note Remix) | Breaks/Electro House

Power Note has joined the fun with their remix of Work In Progress! The fun and catchy melody gets a new twist with break beats and a nice array of 80s style sound design. It brings a different emotion to the raw energy of the original and is a nice addition to the the plethora of remixes you can find over at the official remix compilation album!

Nyancat380 – Depressed | Alternate Electronic

Nyan has always had some interesting and fun tracks and this no exception! A nice expansive melody that slips around constantly opens the track, trying to hold itself together as it builds. The multiple drops however are a different animal all together! Its hard for me to describe from percussive focused hard hitting energy to shuffling DnB style drops with a healthy sprinkling of power chords, you can feel the swing in mood and raw emotion and they do an excellent job switching between sad, and angry. If you’re looking for something a little different, you’ve found it!

Agents of Discord & Reverbrony – Chimera (RIEL Remix) | Complextro

Now this is an interesting one. RIEL has taken Agent of Discord’s and Reverbrony’s song ‘Chimera’ and flipped it on its head! A more in your face, foreboding spectacle of gritty synthesis melds nicely with the original melodies. A lot of switch ups in the rhythm plus a pulsing bassline and ominous atmosphere really sells this as a unique take on the original and I couldn’t be happier for it!
