Label: Defcon Recordings
Coming with a bevy of remixes, tranzLift's "Heaven's Shore" blasts on to Defcon. Versions come from Magdelayna, Ikerya Project, New World and Bryan Somerville. So a fair ole bevy of remixes for y'all to sink your teeth into.
You should know the drill by now. As its Defcon, the remit is on the uplifting side of things. With Function C, Scott Lowe and TrancEye all appearing on the label at one time or another, its pretty obvious that this label means business. Plus it often gets plays by Aly & Fila and Sean Tyas. This release, by tranzLift, shouldn't be any different.
The Original Mix is emotional and epic. Like Simon O'Shine really but not. If you get me. Anyway, its quite uplifting and, yes, euphoric with nice happy synths moving around its body; encapsulating the general feeling of joy. Its pretty exciting and should get the seratonin, and the adrenaline, buzzing.
Of the remixes, and to keep the review short and not turn it into an essay, its the New World remix that stands out; not least because its nearly 10 minutes long. This American producer has had tracks, well, remixes, on Diverted Music and here, he bangs out an emotion-led, uplifting, re-rub that, like the original, is big on euphoria and theatrics. The Magdelayna remake is a Classic FM-style ambient mix; taking the symphonic approach and is, again, big on the theatrics.
Finished off by Ikerya Project and a spiky remix by Bryan Somerville, Heaven's Shore does indeed offer something for everyone. 4 remixes and 1 original? Makes for an all-round good package, especially with a wonderful Magdelayna remake and the pulse of the New World mix.
