Prior to this release, I honestly didn’t know anything about these two lads, but now I’m going to make a point to. I swear, I thought the producers behind this were from Asia (most likely from Japan), but how wrong was I. A lesson to be learned again – never judge a book by its cover. Lavished in Japanese melodies and gentle softness, don’t you love it when the sun rises for the early mourning? Giving you gorgeous rays of light, warming your heart, and giving you life; that’s how Taylor and Gordon’s Sunrise Mix makes you feel – alive and loving everyecond of it. You know, I remember a time when ‘Trance’ music was good. When it wasn’t like how it is now; a time where the music filled your lungs with emotions and it could conjure up thoughts of love and peace, while still feeding you a spiritual mindfvck that opened your eyes and mind into newfound understanding. Listening to this mix makes me feel like that again and it’ll be the same for you as well. Just listen and be possessed by that celestial guitar breakdown while a poetic key change brings you back to earth.
While something you never do is doubt John Graham’s ability to create something so blissful and euphoric that it makes you believe your living a dream. The Quivver Mix is stunning. With it’s ethereal chords, deep subversive bass notes, and floating melodies, this atmospheric excursion is something entirely different than any of the other remixes for this track. Quivver rides a wave of tension, building it slowly and provocatively, yet never releasing the pressure in an impulsive manner. Cutting up the Japanese female vocals adds to the dimension of space that’s surrounding you. You’ll begin to wonder what reality your in as the percussion envelopes you deeper and deeper until the track xpands and subtly explodes at its climax.
One side for the summer, the other, for your mind. Make no mistake; this deserves every bit of praise!
