I heard this latest track Air Brake on Solarstone's radio show and have a feeling some will like it here. I certainly did. I also remember Kyoto from last year which was enjoyable. Both this track and that one will be featured on an upcoming album, of which I have yet to find a release date. Sounds like it could be a good one. I would guess the label will be PURE Trance.

Cool, thanks, I like these. I enjoyed Kyoto and these sound pretty good too. Black Mountain in particular. Look forward to hearing the other album tracks in due course.

Airbrake is sounding nice. Black Mountain i'm not so sure. Plenty of sounds grating and shrieking, feeling so unpleasant to my ears.

Look forward to the album though, should be a good one, maybe one of the best from this year.

This is fucking quality stuff, Kyoto was ruined by a long intro but the Solarstone reconstruction is fucking massive. Cant wait for the album!

Agree with you guys, Airbrake is top. Solarstone called it Modular Techno, is it really? Why not Trance?

Air Brake gets saved by the breakdown, otherwise bit uninteresting. Copy-paste Platipus-inspired 303 acid beats. It's the new trend it seems.

Black Mountain is much more interesting to me. Love those weird industrial samples on the beat, and it has some rather cool synths. It has a mood to it too. Can't wait to hear the full version.

Both sounding ace !

He's got a good ear for production and detail judgding from both those tracks. Too short indeed. :/

First thing that came to my mind when I pressed play. Finally some interesting drums/percussion and especially FX. Called it boring but I actually think the breakdown is weaker now than the rest of the track haha. I don't think it's too short though, I don't think it had any more development in it, based on the existing elements.

Now that other track, Ark, is a TOTY candidate. So wonderful in its own way, sounds a bit like a mixture of old Lieb and new Breakfast, of all producers. Love it!

And now I can't wait for the album. Way to get me excited.

Brilliant release. Love the new label's approach aswell. It cuts free from a lot of "restrictions" whilst still attempting to maintain the essence.

chapeau.

Both Ark and Airbrake are fantastic. I would like Ark to be longer as well.

Any date for the album set?
