Odessa - Original Mix
Odessa is an energetic track that will get your foot tapping right from off. Building gradually with plucky arps and subtle key changes as it moves towards an atmospheric drop filled with huge strings and lush chord progression sure to get those hands in the air of any dance floor. Smooth and airy pads bring the you to the hook, a pure uplifting plucked chord, which builds the track up to a crescendo. At the drop the beat comes back and gives one of those great trance moments thats sure to get the crowd bouncing or your head bopping.
Odessa - Red Sky Remix
Red Skys remix of Odessa takes on a more techie feel, with tougher kick and rolling bassline, giving the track a different feel. As it builds the atmosphere grows using luscious strings and pads creating a euphoric feel driven by the techie bass undertones. At the break low strings take center stage giving it a slightly darker feel. The hook builds gradually and the bassline brings the energy levels up as it reaches its climax and then....... Boom. A huge uplifting trancer that will send shivers down your spine and make the hairs on the back of you neck stand up. A great rework of a great track from Red Sky and one to watch out for in future.
Offside - Original Mix
Offside is another pounding off beat bass driven track that would sound simply awesome on a club system. The tight bass and simple but effective percussion move the track along as the pads and arp build it gradually, constantly raising the temperature. The break has a darker edge to it with the pads giving it an almost eerie feeling. The plucky lead lifts the track up and gives it an uplifting feeling amongst the darkness of the pads, building gradually to the drop. Mixing all the elements together after the drop this track is guaranteed to get your foot tapping, and dance floors dancing. More atmospheric then Odessa but still equally as good.
Offside - Andy Cain Remix
The Andy Cain remix of Offside gives it a different flavour. This more techie rework uses strings and rolling fx arps to build it up gradually. Reaching the break in quick time at under 2 minutes this is where the track comes into its own. Hugh low pads and atmospheres build the break, with subtle pianos to give it that dark but euphoric feeling before the main lead, a distorted square lead brings the gritty edge to this rework back. At the drop, the big kick and bass take the track up a level while maintaining the darker edge to the remix. This remix is a great example of how a track doesn't need loads of different elements all going together to work and offers a great alternative take on the original.
