"Slowmotion II"

Progressive and forward thinking trance release from acclaimed duo Orkidea and Solarstone.

If you like your trance intelligent and forward thinking, look no further than Part II of the Slowmotion trilogy. Finland's finest Orkidea & Pure Trance missionary Solarstone have created a unique piece of constantly evolving & mutating Pure Trance music, with remixes taken from Orkidea's '20 - Remixed' album. In its 128bpm Original Mix the first thing to twist the mind is the probably previously-unheard-of-but-still-danceable 7/8 time signature in the main body of the track. The mesmeric lead melody surfaces at the break, and from thereon in builds and develops to a stung crescendo. First up on remix duties are fellow Finlanders Winkee. Opting for a more traditional 4/4 approach, the guys develop the bell arpeggios and fizzy synth melodies into a lush pure trance landscape, with a huge payoff at the drop. Another Finlander recruited for a remix of Tempo Guisto, another producer who likes to experiment with unusual time signature combinations, he toughens up the groove a little and adds a triplet-timed building arpeggio line to build tension before the break. It's pedal to the metal all the way mid-break, with futuristic layers of sound combining into something truly special. Mesmeric.
