After Brush Strokes last November, it was quite clear that Simon Patterson isn’t one to shy away from the psy influences that are popular among producers from the less commercial side of trance. That being said, him striking a collaboration with Israeli psy legend Astrix was pretty surprising.
The dark atmosphere from Shadows is created by its prominent full-on base line, eerie vocal fragments and crisp kicks, all delivered at breakneck pace. As befits a psy trance production, the build-up sports a filtered lead, which starts faintly and takes quite some time to fully reveal its true sound. For this reason. it really gets under your skin, resulting in a goosebump-inducing, if anti-climactic release. Very nice execution on this. 🙂
If I’m honest though, I’m hearing more Astrix than Simon in this. Nevertheless, great production. Out Feb. 10th, on HOM-Mega :
