First up the original mix features deep kicks and sub bass with a rolling bassline that will instantly get listeners feet tapping and dance floor moving. Ellie's voice gives the track an uplifting feeling right from the outset and is complemented by subtle percussion and big snare hits giving this a real good progressive feel. Warm pads complement the vocal perfectly as the track builds the atmosphere towards the break, before bright pianos fill the track with emotion that will have dance floors reaching for the sky. The exquisite vocals build the track to the big square lead hook, which comes in with a bang giving the track real energy as it builds to a huge crescendo. Having built the crowd up to a frenzy the drop comes in with a great impact, blending crystal clear hooks with the deep basses, rolling percussions and that big kick making this a great progressive uplifting trance track that sure to go down well in clubs from Manchester to Melbourne.
First up on remix duties is Dreamy, whose Vocal mix gives the track a new direction and very different style. This rework is one for those who like their gritty basses, big kicks, distorted claps and rolling mid basses. The track has real energy from the outset. Bringing the vocals in early, Dreamy uses them to really build the atmosphere, while the pounding beat is sure to get dance floors moving. Subtle chord plucks add depth to the track as it builds to the break. Using the bass to drive the track to a massive pad drop works really well and the lush warm filtering pads give the track a real euphoria, which is added to by piano-esque plucks and Ellie's great voice. The main lead is a simply huge arp, that builds and builds. If people's hands aren't in the air before this comes in, they will soon be reaching for the heavens as the track builds to drop. Coming in with huge power the kicks, bass and lead blend together into uplifting trance heaven. This remix is sure to be hit with everyone from bedroom DJs to global big hitters.
The second remix of the pack comes from label owners Amos & Riot Night giving it another different flavour. Still with the same punchy kicks and tough claps, the track has a warmer bass sound than the Dreamy version, making this one for those who like their uplifting trance a little less tech-y sounding. Plucky chords build the track and give is a nice energy that you can't help but tapping your foot to, meaning this is definitely going to work on club dance floors. Ellie's voice is used slightly different again, but still really adds to the track as it builds to the drop. At the break choir and warm glassy pads blend perfectly to compliment the vocals. Pianos add to the atmosphere of the track and combine well with the chord as they build the track to its climax. The drop is sure to set rooms on fire with the sort of vibe that will get room bouncing to the beat, hands held aloft. Another great remix, with a different style meaning between these three remixes there is something for every kind of trance lover out there.
Finishing off the first release is the Dreamy Dub mix. This is the version to use if you like tracks with some vocals but not full on throughout the track. The vocals are used subtly and cleverly to build the track in places. But this remix is definitely the one for those who just like pounding uplifting trance.
As first packs go on labels, this debut from Progressia really sets the standard for what the label is trying to achieve; well produced trance focussing on progressive for originals but with remixes offering something different. If this first pack is anything to go by then it won't be long before Progressia is a label that people are looking for out for on promo day and itching to include tracks from in their sets.
We hope you enjoy this first pack as much as we have enjoyed putting it together and thanks for the support.
