With Sisa and Twenty, Kayosa, Tolland and Matt Noland offered two fantastic uplifters for everyone to enjoy, but it’s now time for Something Else, namely Akira Kayosa‘s solo debut on Monster Force. Let’s take a closer look.
Some might describe the current crop of uplifting trance as generic or simply boring, but as with anything worthwhile, you’ll have to do more than just scratch the surface to get to the good stuff. There’s a lot of talk about bringing back the classic sound, something that many people (Including myself) support, and slowly but surely, it has begun happening.
Something Else walks the fine line between modern and classic, employing an oh-so-good lead that’s sure to get the goosebumps going from its very beginning. What I appreciate most of all is the definitive focus on the melodic side without the need to resort to any weird FX trickery. If the melody is strong enough, it’ll stand on its own, which is definitely the case here. Lovely pads and distant hints of the lead occupy the break as one gets ready for what’s to come. From there on, energy levels increase up to breaking point, we get a slight breather in the shape of a vocal snippet and then we’re treated to the full extent of the track’s climax. Top stuff.
You’ll be able to get your eager hands on Something Else starting this coming Monday, September 14th, off of Beatport. Two weeks later, you’ll be able to pick it up from everywhere else, but until then, here’s a taste of what you can expect:
