FINALLY IT HAS ARRIVED! It's been cained by too many DJ's to mention, not least of all Jules who has made it his 'Tried & tested tune of the week' on Radio 1! Beautiful is the eagerly awaitied release from Polaroid!
There are actually about 5 different mixes (that I know of) floating about at the moment. This is the review for the two main mixes on the general release:
The Andy Morris mix is a fairly progressive affair. Plenty of dark percussion and bassy melodies accompanying the deep kickdrum. The intitial melody is very floaty, layered over a very nice trancey backdrop. The main vocal is what this tune has been raved about for, and rightly so. It is truly anthemic. Andy has used the vocal over his blend of juicy synth chords and clever bassline melody to great effect. Top class remix!
the dogzilla mix is the faster paced mix of the two, as championed by Jules & co. The kickdrum is nice and sharp and the percussion keeps everything tight at the seems. There's loads of filtering over the garggling bassline and the vocal is cut up to give a nice seperate effect. The main vocal remains the same during the break and still sounds just as amazing. So much so that when the beat drops back in, there's not very much needed in the way of percussion to complete the tune. There are some very clever touches in the underlay of the tune which work well to promote the vocal's class. This is the pick of the mixes which I have heard without a boubt!
Overall the vocal ensures that this tune has/will reach ANTHEM status in clubland. It is the epitomy of euphoria. If you have any sort of interest in trance you'll buy it! ABSOLUTELY UNMISSABLE!
