A Trace of Space
REVIEW BY drm (01/02/2013)Why do I like this track?
Well it ticks all the right boxes for me in what an electronic piece of music should sound like.
First off there is the lead - it has not been programmed to sound flat and lifeless - it's got a lot of expression in there. The little frills also add character to the lead.
The chords in this track are interesting too and make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up! This remix also has a nod to it's roots by having the 8 bit sounding staccato arp sound running throughout the remix and I like the way it's developed in the fade out - something most remixers would probably have overlooked by just letting it run and fade. I also think this is an outstanding track in that it manages to marry the sound of Jarre and Vangelis in just 3m:22sec. In fact when I first heard the beta release of this I thought Mordi had found an unreleased bootleg Vangelis track!
Well done Mordi I hope one day I can do a remix as good as this one. This is staying on my MP3 player and best of all it was free!!
