Our 5th release is here! We first heard these tracks from Andre in early summer and have been working hard to get them finished and out to you guys. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do. I fucking love Es Vedra And Citra! As usual, your support is appreciated, with all profits going back into the forum :)

Listened to all for first time and reviewed / feedback/critique as hearing them play.

Ed Vedra
Lovely atmosphere‘a and a beautiful intro ❤️.
Some nice slightly older style plucks, then they nicely subtly form a lead line with what sounds like an additional similar waveform but with more edge to it so it can herald as a lead.
Piano is nice and extremely well mixed in. Nice and wide and chilled feel. Great pace to the track. Definitely a sweet progressive atmospheric track. Arrangement sounds just as it should. Energy is nice, but (imo) stays similar throughout, but then this might be the point. ( plus it’s only my first listen) Overall a lovely atmospheric chilled Trancer. Really nice emotion
8 out of 10


Citra
Yeah, nice build at the start, less ambient intro than Ed Vedra but nice as it has a more vibrant feel because of the juicy Arpeggiator bass.
Fab plucks again join the show.
Interesting waveform comes in at 1.00 minutes with a pan flute electronic feel. - not 100% about that one but interesting, might grow on me.
Nice pad at the break. sound effect gritty swooshes are cool. Then some large plucks lift it up. Then whoaaaa! A superb electronic bright flute steels the show for a while. Beat comes in nicely. Then back comes the flute. Good energy when it all comes together and nice breakdown after. Good soundscapes to bring it to an end with the kick hats and snare roll to finish. Cool.

Bella Domina.
yes starts with a nice energetic kick then Juicy arp driving it with a big spacey soundscape behind at times. Plucks enter, rhythmic stab ones. Few nice pads, layered behind is a nice subtle what i feel like an electric guitar stab. Quick breakdown then Short bit of a sharper nice stab with cool reverb and delay.
Then, pads and the nice subtle distortion sound create the atmosphere untill it builds cleverly with beats and atmospheric pads and return of a brighter but similar pluck to earlier. Arp keeps it driving nicely. Good introduction of a clap to then build again. The energy really starts building then a gorgeous resonant distorted arpy single note hypnotic sound glued stuff to the next section, more percussion comes in. All stays for a bit then nicely begins the outro. - That Arp, kick hats and perc. Then its brought nicely to an end.
This track has some spice to it!
Great energy dips and rises to scintillate the senses!
9.5 out of 10


Favourite is Bella Domina. But all of these tracks are graced with a great atmosphere and enough emotive grip to keep them flowing nicely.

Sounds a bit like "newbie" trance for me,unfortunaly. Like some b or c tier artist from the 2006-2008 era. The melodies/plucks doesnt connect with me at all, they just feel like some "regular" trance presets melodies ive heard in hundreds of other productions over the years. The drums are also very "standard". Nothing really sticks out to me, not the build,not the transitions,not the melodies,not the arranements, not the sound design.

Es Vedra is prolly the least worst one of the bunch, but still doesnt leave any impression on me. It sounds close to a current modern day borderline release, just maybe a step of two down in terms of maturity/credibility.


5/10 for the whole ep. Sorry guys.
