One of the most successful current artists on our roster is American
sensation eleven.five. Thanks to a litany of top-charting singles over
the past two years, including routine radio support by the likes of
Above and Beyond and Max Graham, he has become a fixture on the most
acclaimed international progressive and trance shows. His deep house
single "Echo" was even featured on Armin van Buuren's recent BBC
Essential Mix. We are thrilled to present two more timeless cuts by
eleven.five, as part of a new EP.
The title cut, "September 16th," begins with a snappy rhythm, coupled
with a euphoric, crescendoing arp line. Equally warm pads begin to
envelope the lead, and a poignant piano line also cuts through the
mix. At the quarter turn, we are met with an ethereal array of vox
stabs, a key motif in the track. Later on in the main break, the lead
arp "evolves" into a truly rapturous progression, especially when
combined with the heavenly vox. The drop to follow is a simultaneously
exhilarating and cathartic moment in the song.
The B-side track, "Thinks Of Her," features a radiant lead arp,
coupled with a furious breakbeat. The soundscape is truly inspired,
seemingly drawing inspiration from dubstep, while still possessing the
more atmospheric and melodic elements of progressive breaks. In the
main break, we are met with a crystalline lead theme, another
mesmerizing anthem by the exceedingly talented eleven.five.
