HORIZONS-Dusk Over Puerto Princesa (NAREL Remix) [LANDSCAPES MUSIC]


2022 so far has been a year of new opportunities, a downpour of new and exceptional music and of course the slow and steady ascend of new artists in the scene that we all are enamored with. It has also seen the return and welcome revival of our favorite tunes from the past. A tune that had definitely received loads of attention and praise when it was released a couple years ago was undoubtedly "Dusk Over Puerto Princesa", by Italian DJ/Producer and label owner of "LANDSCAPES MUSIC", Shyamol Maracci, better known under his artist name "HORIZONS". This tune has been reshaped and re imagined once more under the watchful eye and precise ear of a talented producer that answers to the name "NAREL". This new forged outing and reinterpretation of the beloved track is out now on the original artist's home label itself "LANDSCAPES MUSIC".

 The lush, magical and dreamy recognizable vibes of the original are here in all their glory, spliced up magnificently by the artist at work. A thorough and clairvoyant approach into the future, fine tuned for 2022. The listener is easily engaged in the melodious nature of the tune at hand and ongoing majestic theme it encapsulates, as a vibrant feeling of splendor is ever present throughout it all. Magnanimous remix attempt in keeping the track present, fresh and innovative, something that is without a doubt much needed in the world we inhabit today. The refreshing, mind altering, meticulous vibes that follow sit in perfectly with the lush imagery of the crystal clear waters and ongoing serenity found at the very location of "Puerto Princesa" itself. 

 A huge round of applause goes out to the talented "NAREL" for his exquisite remix work.

Dan Thompson-Deep Horizon [Coldharbour Recordings]


One of the UK's undeniable talents is ever ascending star "Dan Thompson". Dan has been on the forefront of the scene for quite a spell and has constantly attracted positive attention towards his person via his eclectic musical taste in the vast field of dance music and his uncanny production abilities. His solo productions, collaborations and remixes have all had their fair share in the spotlight with many featured on radio shows such as "A State Of Trance" with "Armin Van Buuren" and "Global DJ Broadcast" with "Markus Schulz". 

 Recent highlights include nabbing a spot with his dynamic tune "Airbourne", on acclaimed DJ Mix compilation series "In Search Of Sunrise", featured on the disc mixed by none other than "Markus Schulz" himself. Another is delivering a stunning remix on the legendary tune "Fixation" by "Andy Ling". Inspiration never seems to be that far away for the Englishman and he proves that statement in full by delivering a fresh single on "Coldharbour Recordings" dubbed "Deep Horizon".

 Imagine if you will a world constructed of chugging basslines and ecstatic rhythms that forever build, all the while enhanced by ethereal female vocal snippets that brighten said world every minute. This is only the tip of the iceberg as the tune in question's progression seems to be a beautiful and enchanting attempt at storytelling I daresay. Lush, exotic landscapes form before us while the internal tension and a sort of masked aggression build with every second of airplay. Pumping, "in your face" leads dominate the previously serene landscape like a downpour of rain, a tempest if you like, as a burst of energy is unleashed into the open. One can easily marvel at and detect the perfect balance of harmony within this one. Sweet, serene moments soaked in a kind of tranquility shapeshift and utterly transform into a thunderous trance affair of epic proportions. Large and in charge! Dan is most certainly off to a killer start for 2022!
