Serbia’s Pulsar Recordings adds yet another up and coming talent to its artist roster, UK’s Ryan Kay. Even better, the Pulsar folks have also roped in Neutronix to give Total Annihilation a more classic twist. Let’s take a closer look.
As is the case with most releases on Pulsar’s main imprint, Ryan’s original falls neatly into the uplifting section of the trance spectrum, with its rolling base and really underlined melody. The epic breakdown is the part I enjoyed most, along with the synth stabs and the fairly enjoyable melodic climax. It’s a decent track, but I personally would have enjoyed it more if it had a little more on the low end, as the base didn’t seem quite as strong. Then again, different strokes for different folks. 🙂
It’s no secret that I enjoy the older sounds quite a lot, so Neutronix’s blend of old and new has once more gotten my attention. These days pure uplifters are pretty rare, since producers like to experiment with different influences and sounds, so there’s a strong tech trance influence in this rework. A more underlined base and more pronounced acids, along with a fittingly acidized climax have made me lean more towards this remix rather than the original. Awesome stuff.
Don’t get me wrong, neither of the two is bad, it’s merely a matter of preference. Whether you dig the original or you’re more into the remix, you’ll be able to get whichever strikes you fancy on March 23rd. Also yes, it’s a global release. GIve a listen to the samples and see what you think. 🙂
