Jakub Król (aka @im_aquariusmusic ) is a 17-year-old producer from Poland whose previous single ‘Sunrise’ raised some eyebrows due to the sophistication of his sound - rare in one so young. Now the talented lad from #Świdnica returns with something even better in the shape of the 126bpm Deep Trance focused ‘On the Edge’.

Really nice track this one. Such a talent for his age as well.

The style reminds me of Cirez D, 'neverending' build and keeping the tension.
He was definitely inspired by Eric Prydz on this one and I'm not complaining!


It's the epic 'dripping' beat that makes this track.
Like in Schiller - Das Glockenspiel (Humate Remix).

And this beat works very well with the retro themed melody.

We're really lucky that young guys these days still feel passion for this kind of music,
well not a lot of them do, right!?


BTW, I'm curious how this would sound, remixed by Jerome Isma Ae, in a similar swinging-beat style to what he did with Orkidea's Nana.
Heck, I wish Tapio himself would have a take on this as well :)

Sounds pretty generic/standard to me..typical prog-house "synth-wave" inspired "trance". stuff lke this gets released all the time on zerothree label. even since 5 years back.

its not bad per se, but theres nothing really going on in the track. just that really simple one/two note melody and then just dropping back to that very generic bassline we hear in all prog-trance in this modern era. the only thing thats cool is what the guy above said about the "dripping" beat.

endre was also 16/17 when he got these signed/released. much better musical content imo.
