Another from the Anjuna golden era. Child was my particular favourite as it was just so emotional and uplifting. A beautiful melody made from raindrop keys which doesn't do anything too complicated, just gently lifts you and keeps you floating for the remainder of the track. Takes me back to the Godskitchen days at Air Nightclub.

Child (Original Mix)

Nova (Original Rise Mix)

Nova - (Daniel Kandi vs Kris O'Neil Remix)

I consider Child the very best Daniel Kandi production of all time.

As for Nova, i always preferred the Kandi vs O'Neil remix. Original are great as well, but there's just something about that remix that makes it better.

Love Child - just the subtle sound changes I miss those from Daniel and then he went on a massive hard kick emotional mixes which totally deflated his sound.

Nostalgia is huge in this track especially that breakdown :'( I miss emotional Trance

I'm going against the trend here but imo the original of Nova is the business, such an melancholic melody and so well arranged. Child is pretty good too but there's something too predictable about it that bores me.

Loving both originals and slightly prefer Child, it's sweetness gets me every time. But Nova is probably a better track overall.

Melodies of both tracks have a dream-like magical quality to them that is not commonly found in today's trance.

Nova is the more understated tune but Child remains my pick of the two - it's the classic uplifting that Kandi is known for.
