A little surprised this preview didn't get posted last week by our usual posters (if It has and I've missed it please remove the thread @admins).

I enjoyed it and was my stand out from Rich's show last week imo. However, I hear similarities with Hoopoe at the start for those with a tentative ears. Love or hate it.

Big fan of Allende, probably my most consistent producer and he is never making generic stuff. This is very nice again.

Released today!

Doesn't connect with me, but I have to say that it's well crafted and brilliant as always. Allende is one of the names I look most forward to popping up in this section.

Damn, gonna be difficult to choose next week's TOTW. Airwave & Ferry Tayle's Cape Town, Allende, and the Thurlow Joyce release... All on the same day! Hell of a Friday. Whichever gets chosen though, all are worthy.

Not bad! Really like the melody, it somewhat reminds me of 90s Japanese VG soundtracks like Parasite Eve for example.

Just wish it was slightly faster. But solid over all.

Its good, i appreciate it. Just a bit twinkly/bright for me overall. Its like a take on albion-air (and hale-bop) sort of. The build feels a bit to rigid. Its playful but at the same time it lacks smoothness in how it builds

Allende isnt really trance for me, its a bunch of other stuff, but with a 4x4 beat basically. Not very conventional trance atleast.

6.3/10

That break is damn sweet, almost odd compared to the rest of it. I do like how it progresses afterwards, the little change ups and acid bits.

Well it most certainly is an unconventional track. I dig the melodic ideas here. Very serene and dreamy. But on the whole, it lacks cohesiveness. The intro and outro don't transition very well into the main section. The beatless intro seems needlessly tacked on.

Those lush pads are just gorgeous, why don't more producers use stuff like that??

The first section doesn't flow/transition amazingly into the next sections starting around 2:45 and again at 3:30, but not a deal breaker and from there on in it just gets better and better. Atmospheres and melodies so nice. Love the beatless intro too actually. Look forward to every Allende release as never know what you are gonna get, always trys something new, never generic, nice sounds etc...

Great job @allende!
