First single off the Island album coming out next week.

I think this is a decent proggy track, somewhere between an Orkidea and Yotto track. Lively groove and percussive elements. Although the melodic side of things left me wanting more, it stays kinda the same all the way throughout.

Nice one. Need some more listens to let it sink in though.

Pretty nice, gotta admit. Agree with you, it's kinda lacking on the melodic side. The style is pretty damn great, maybe would've worked with fuller, richer sounds.

Pretty sweet. Track brings you in a persistent vegetative state :)

Yep its grown on me a lot. Dont think its particularly powerful or emotive, but has so many elements I wish I would see return to Trance like the sweeping strings, welcoming pace and fun baseline. I also love the sample!

The melody may be nothing too complex but I absolutely love that breakdown and buildup, great choice of synths. That pad/strings is great, it's definitely Trance.

A great candidate for an uplifting remix from Aly & Fila. You can feel the beach and Ibiza climate. Maybe Fadi is considering a remix for this track as he played at home in FSOE 667.

Not bad, but nothing special IMO. Reminds me of Age of Love - Age of Love at around 6m20s...

Lovely piece of music. Definitely one of my favorites from his Island album.
