South Africa's Andre Frauenstein has been undergoing something of a musical transmogrification, formerly known for his pounding productions, the man known as Lostly has made a very definite shift towards a new sound. Inspired by his renowned live shows featuring live 303 tweaking, this new incarnation focuses on a spacious, 303 driven progressive approach. With the 'less is more' mentality - We're Descending is a fine example of where Lostly is now heading. One of the most commented on tracks from Solarstone's trending Electronic Architecture 4 mix and melodically understated, it transcends genre-specific borders, being mentioned by DJs across the progressive and techno spectrums.

Fat bassline and quirky and catchy synths. Sounds energetic and subtle at the same time. This is a top release.

There is almost nothing happening in the track...the production might be solid, but melodic-ly its not interesting enough, I would take any 138 steroid tracks instead tbh :D

Boring as hell. The beatwork is so basic it hurts and everything just sound way too soft and muted. The acid isnt subtle in a good way in this even,and I love subtle acid. Really really underproduced. Isnt it funny how we get mostly over-produced or under-produced tracks?

Even me would rather lsiten to a Darren Porter track over this :O

Not feeling this at all. One of the weakest Lostly releases I can remember.

I am also left wanting more from the overall idea and it does feel a bit underdeveloped in that sense, like it just needed another phase or additional musical personality to lift it. Beatwork is indeed bit basic too. But when I first heard it in EA4 I was really taken to a good place at that point in the mix, I loved it actually. It is really clean and pleasing to my ears, I think how he's done the acid is good and melodic, rather than chaotic/intense, which I prefer. The whole thing feels very atmospheric and moody to me, its cool. 7.6/10!

This has got a good groove, but as others have mentioned, it is way too underdeveloped and lacking in variation.

It probably works well enough in a set, but as a standalone track there needs to be more going on. A missed opportunity i felt, in what could have been an interesting track.

Finally a club oriented trance track and the guys don't like it.

The track itself its not great or fantastic, but its more ok than the 99% of today's trance production.
