For this feature, we’re stepping into the dark side of trance music, as we have a look see at the newest EP from Robert Vadney, forthcoming under Pulsar Dark. This should be interesting.
The original was a big surprise for me, at least in terms of the arrangement. Man On The Moon weaves together its psy-influenced baseline plus the spacey atmospheric touches and on point vocal samples to create a terrific, mysterious slab of trance. The acids bubbling below the surface and the ominous climax tick all the boxes, winning a firm placement among my favourites for Robert’s original. Don’t think I’ve been this excited since Wasteland, but it’s entirely justified. Superb track.
Vince Aoun Remix
First on remix duties is Vince Aoun who twists the production into a rather more progressive shape, with some electro influences thrown in for good measure. The first half is, to me at least, reminiscent of the old Tritonal sound form the beginning of the decade, which made for a great listening experience. The climax was a little too big room-ish for my taste, but hey, different strokes for different folks. 🙂
Dr. Clarke Remix
Adding the second stroke of variety, Pulsar Dark regular Dr. Clarke opts for a progressive arrangement as well, but with a rather heavier tone overall. The vocal chops get a nice treatment, and the sound of the remix in general hints towards an experimental approach. The break has been shuffled around and the end result is pretty unique honestly. Cool stuff.
The original remains my firm favourite, but you are free to examine these samples in depth and pick your own. You still have time to think it through as the EP is out June 30th, so wrap your ears around these three distinctive approaches:
