Mix compilations often times try to offer a great variety in styles, which translates in them appealing to a broader audience. More specialized comps do have their place though, as evidenced by Yellow Sunshine Explosion‘s long running GOA series.
Since 2002, the compilation series has delighted many a psy fans with its track selections, and it’s about to delight those fans once more, as the release date of its 54th installment is right in sight. Featuring productions from the likes of Side Effects, Champa, Egorythmia and others, this is sure to be a worthwhile addition to your collection. As good as the track selection is, I’d like to single out a track, if I may.
A collab I found intriguing at first, Shake and Magnus‘ Storm has definitely been a delightful part of my playlists for the past 8 months. The sample from Soundcloud provided a nice glimpse into a genre (or style if you so desire) that has grown a lot on me in the past year. A combination of driving progressive underside, funky psy vibes and mysterious vocal chops, Storm succeeds in bridging the gap between club and home, fitting both in the peak time environment of DJ sets and in a nice relaxing listening session at home.
As far as I’m concerned, this is “modern trance’ done the proper way. A well crafted production that’s an absolute delight to listen to.
This collab will be launched on May 8th, as part of Yellow Sunshine Explosion‘s GOA Vol. 54, compiled by Champa. Have listen to the sample below. 🙂
