Pete Silver comes up for air on Diverted Music with Beyond The Blue Sky. This one features remixes from The Noble Six, Dave Cold and TrancEye. Its a kicking piece of uplifting trance with a touch of the symphonic about it.
Surprisingly, its not the original which starts us off. Its the remix by Diverted's A&R man TrancEye which hits the ground running. As is usual for the Polish wonderkid, its full of euphoric uplifts, touches of symphonics, positive synths and a bucket load of good times. After his recent Jean-Michel Jarre remix, this is the same sterling TrancEye. Solid...like most of his other productions and remixes actually.
It is the Original Mix that comes next and this is where, unsurprisingly, you hear all the positivity coming through loud and clear. Pete has recently appeared on both Unearthed and Digitized and is becoming, to me at least, a name to watch in the world of trance. Like the TrancEye mix before it, the riffs are high-ended and the general theme is one of joy and positivity. I don't think you could be miserable by the time this finishes. Good vibes aplenty.
The Noble Six, trance's version of The Avengers (probably), unleash a super-charged, fully loaded, remix that thumps and punches its way through the opposition. For me, it is a solid remix that isn't as hard as the TrancEye remix or as serenic as the Original but it has an impressive lead riff that you can't help but get lost in.
Dave Cold provides the final mix and its a bit of an icy blast for y'all. A nice stripped down classic trance mix, this. It isn't too fast or too overbearing and is typical of the stuff that Diverted are renowned for. Fans of the 1999 era of trance should be all over this. For me though, its a toss-up between TrancEye's mix and the Original.
