Opening this release, label veterans Eskai and SNR premiere their "Elevven" alias on our imprint via a thrilling mashup of Eskai's own acclaimed deep-progressive hit "Point Break" with the Dan Sieg and Maxx Hennard classic "Walls." In this version, we are, of course, treated to the honeyed and indelible vocals of Maxx Hennard, coupled with the cosmic bassline of "Point Break," which help us transcend self-created barriers in life.
AOA!'s adrenalin-fueled "Murcia (Plz Stay)" is a Balearic-tinged melodic progressive gem that reveals infectious vocal stabs in the early going. In the song's climax, trance-y chords dissipate and then swirl together, creating a euphoric swell of sound.
AKI Amano transports us to a dream state with "Streamlines." Subtle percussive elements and a variety of elegant melody lines offer a boundlessly lucid and tranquil listening experience. Subtle percussion accents guide our otherwise wandering minds, as sweeping textures allow us to relax and contemplate.
Canadian phenom Lessov invites us to explore the depths of our existence with "Natura." The track's deep bassline creates a sturdy aural foundation, in contrast to the light, ethereal vocal cuts. The result is a numinous journey into our psyche, as we watch the seasons begin to change.
Another gifted veteran, Pavel Denisov, offers "Terra," a smooth deep house cut that doubles as a soundtrack piece to a crisp and evocative autumn night. Throughout the arrangement, cosmic trance pads and tantalizing female vocal stabs accentuate the lush atmosphere. A tight and hypnotic rhythm lulls us into a final breakdown, as stars begin to puncture the night sky.
