With various internationally acclaimed tracks already under his belt in recent months, eleven.five shows no signs of slowing down, as we are excited to present a brand new 2-track EP by the American sensation on our parent imprint. He has been on quite a ride recently: from his "The Way We Were" single to the more recent "Freckles / Echo" EP, both of which were supported on radio by Above and Beyond, as well as many other leading international DJ's. This new EP features his uplifting, peak-hour sound, which has been embraced by progressive house and trance fans alike. There are two versions of "Pinnacle" available here: an "Intro Mix," featuring the gorgeous main theme at the beginning of the track, as well as the Club Mix, which has already been previewed by Tom Fall on his Silk Royal Showcase 03 mix. The first half of the track centers on a resonant and meaty bassline progression, as moody pads imbue the track with a haunting soundscape. In the first of two extended breaks, we are met by the celestial synth line -- the main theme and truly most memorable riff of the song -- as well as a gorgeous piano instrumental. Later on, in the main break, these themes are joined by the crescendoing bassline, which creates a powerful climax (or should we say "pinnacle"?) to the track. The B-side is "Turion," which once again features an inspired and infectious lead theme. Although various layers and background melodies spice up the soundscape, the main chord progression is the real "star" of this show, which both reverberates on the dancefloor and evokes a euphoric response in the listener.
