Label favourite Ariscan is back with perhaps his most EL-EL sounding release to date, a wistful, melancholic, late summer trancer called 'Orcas'.

Crisp signature production sits beneath a BT-esque cut up vocal and arpeggiated riff, before dropping into a huge goosebump inducing riff. Beautiful.

On remix duties we're beyond chuffed to have finally snagged Simon Bostock, who's been on our radar for some time now. His remix keeps the lush melodic elements of the original, but adds a deep pulsing bassline that provides drive and energy in all the right places.

You shouldnt be ! :D

Work harder!!

and listen to buildup in rank 1 - awakening (ferry remix) 0.00- 2.00

we need some groove, some drive, some tension, nice dreamy sounds. this one is to rigid, needs more playfulness. Do you hear the maracas?

No really this is def decent enough , almost a little nice. I was too harsh. But still listen carefully to the build in awakening.

It's like being at school, hehe. I'll listen to that Ferry remix and take some inspiration, but not too much otherwise I'll get my knuckles wrapped by you lot. I need some maracas in my life.

Not harsh at all, honesty is the best thing, xmas card is in the post. ;)

Loving the style here of the remix. One of the better melodic breakdowns I've heard recently, kinda reminds me a bit of Adam White's Ballerina. But yeah, the climax could use some more drive IMO. Keep at it! Definitely gonna spin this a couple of times.

Don’t be like that, feedback good or bad is good, music is so subjective and it’s about getting the general balance right. I’ve already posted a Xmas card to Daysleeper. :)

Wtf is this, a well written response on the Internet about taking criticism on some of your own work? 2020 is truly saved!

Surprised there have been so few releases on LL this year, considering it's their 20th anniversary as well. You'd expect some remasters/remixes of classics to commemorate such an anniversary.
Going back to this release, nice, subtle melodies and the mixes are sufficiently different from each other to tempt you to buy both. One criticism is that I'd like to have heard longer main melody segments in each. Simon's remix does a good job of increasing the energy and intensity of the melody with time, but still think he could have made it even more euphoric with fuller, phatter sounds without crossing over into the dreaded steroid trance territory. Maybe it will sound the way I want it to when I play it on a bigger system.
