Genre: Progressive / Trance
Karanda make an appearance on Alter Ego with Cloud Nine. Remixes come from Juventa and Ozo Effy. Its a progressive track with an essence of trance injected.
The Original Mix is a poignant track with a proggy body but a trancey soul. In layman's terms, some may consider this kind of music boring or chin-strokey but this is a label that, like Perceptive, Enhanced and Infrasonic amongst others, knows their shizzle. It has a melancholic approach and a somewhat methodical aspect to it as well. Slightly cinematic too.
For the remixes, Juventa drops something along the lines of Enhanced Progressive in terms of poise and style. The tempo is pretty much the same but is a sturdier, more advanced, beast. Its the Ozo Effy mix that gets me. An energy-laden, full-pelt, assault that takes the track further into trancefloor territory. Probably the best mix on the package but Juventa's mix is worth a shout too.
