    [item value="10"]Nōpi, Madraas and Rem Siman - Nocturnal 012[/item]
    [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Eelke Kleijn's labels Days Like Nights continues to release highly impressive club tracks. His Nocturnal EP series bring together some very diverse and exciting tracks. Nōpi’s Scorched Land is dark full of rhythm and hypnotic grooves deep melodic house with dark moody percussion, cool stretched vocal in the breakdown with warm strings and harps perfect to raise hands in the air leading to the demanding and punchy melodramatic climax. Madraas’ beauty ‘Nebra’ is smooth melodic spacious and sparkling refreshing melodic house with balearic and afrohouse touches along with strong female vocal with soulful elegant cosy tones. Finally Rem Siman’s ‘Face The Music’ is a wonderful slice of percussive melodic goodness with cool funky electro house groove, gated vocal lines, jazzy saxophones and demanding spoken vocal sample that simply works perfectly to elevate the track to the next level. #PureGold Love IT [/content]

  • Trance Review: Driftmoon X Ruben De Ronde X 88Birds - Colour Of Your Eyes out on Black Hole Recordings

     



    01: Driftmoon x Ruben de Ronde x 88Birds - Colour Of Your Eyes (Original Mix)
    02: Driftmoon x Ruben de Ronde x 88Birds - Colour Of Your Eyes (Extended Mix)
    03: Driftmoon x Ruben de Ronde x 88Birds - Colour Of Your Eyes (Extended Intro Mix)


    To say the last twelve months have spelt change for Driftmoon might be the electronic music understatement of the year. In that time, the act’s gone from being an ‘I’ back to a ‘We’, with Miikka Leinonen rejoining Driftmoon’s other founder member Juraj Klička. After seven years apart, the much fan-cheered reunification has clearly become not just a force multiplier, but also a force for their change.

    With a 2024 album on the rise (Driftmoon’s first since ‘Remember The Night’ in 2019), they’ve been equalising their classically melodic sound with more atypical fare. And none more so perhaps than last month’s metal guitar-led climate polemic, ‘Earth Song’. 

     

    For its follow up, the Finnish/Slovak duo are joined by one of the most recognisable faces in the industry, Ruben de Ronde. Known for his melodic production approach, through successful releases like ‘Bloodstream’, ‘The Distance’ and ‘Oxygen‘ (alongside 88Birds), Ruben’s become one of the progressive genre’s leading lights. Today Driftmoon and Ruben de Ronde reconnect with 88Birds, a singer-songwriter renowned for her artistry, and collectively on ‘Colour Of Your Eyes’ the quartet have gifted early summer a genuine anthem to embrace.

    Artistically, ‘Colour Of Your Eyes’ falls somewhere between the album’s earlier vanguard singles (‘Bliss’ ‘Prime Example’, and ‘Falling’) and ‘Earth Song’. It cruises beatifically from port, caught on a tide of rolling beats, undulating bass and FX-infused coastal atmospheres. Juraj, Miikka and Ruben frame the track in a progressive manner, never letting one of its exceptional sounds, sequences or elements overpower another. ‘Colour Of Your Eyes’ song meanwhile sees 88Birds shift deftly between the edgy Bjorkian provocations of her verses and its sweetly harmonised chorus. 

    Prefacing Driftmoon’s five-years-in-the-waiting ‘Moonstruck’ LP, the ‘Colour Of Your Eyes’ is revealed today! Find it where all fine music is sold or streamed HERE.

    [item value="10"]Driftmoon X Ruben De Ronde X 88Birds - Colour Of Your Eyes  [/item]
    [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Driftmoon and Ruben De Ronde with the excellent vocals of  88Birds present the exceptional high class progressive trance anthem Colour Of Your Eyes. It comes in two versions with intro mix to make it easier to start your DJ set with it. The original track is a blissful melodic dreamy sun soaked beauty with pulsating basslines, electro infused grooves, chunky kicks and punchy drums perfect to create that balearic hypnotic atmosphere. The vocal is absolutely mesmerizing and will be remembered as the years go by. With harps, orchestral strings and touching synths and tripping out melody Color of Your Eyes is simply unmissable for those who love their trance to move to the next level or song writing, arrangement and composition. #PureGold Love IT [/content]
