He's done it again 😍

Our longest serving JOOF producer and firm fan favourite returns remixing not one, but two of his best known classics.

Legato is arguably one of the greatest Trance tracks of the 00's being hammered and supported by the worlds greatest, from Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk through to Ferry Corsten.

With 20 years history, it was time to give it a fresh version for 2022 and there's only one person that can do this, The Digital Blonde himself.

The extra bonus a fresh version of the Callakuma too!

There is no other producer on this planet like The Digital Blonde, no one that sounds like him, no one that is more dedicated to his underground take on Trance.

Ricky Smith aka The Digital Blonde, the creator of NEON albums which are some of the best albums of the last few years, and my personal current favourite progressive trance producer, has decided to rework his timeless classic "Legato" which is my absolute favourite classic creation from him (along with "Electra").

The Digital Blonde - Legato 22


And also the 2nd track from release is track #4 from Ricky's Luminosity Beach Festival 2022 set, with the female eerie vocals. Another brilliant work!

The Digital Blonde - Callakuma 22


Longer version from Lumi sets - Legato [49:27 to 59:27], Callakuma [24:07 to 30:36]

He actually played Callakuma as an ID at an event back in 2017 or so and then it was never heard from again. So glad it's getting released!

Also loving the updated Legato.

The legend does it again! One of the best releases of the year!

My next wish is of a reworked Europa EP, fingers crossed 🤞🏻

Nearly quater of an hour long. A little indulgent of Ricky........

The breakdown does sound nice though! Hope its the mastered correctly.

Well on one of the NEON albums there was an hour long track. 15 min long tracks are pretty much standard for Blonde tracks since a few years 😃

Yay it's been released today!

The vibe in Callakuma 22 kinda reminds me of Southern Sun, but more lush!

Legato 22 is a TOTY contender !
Insane set, possibly some new 00.db in there as well?!
Legato absolutely smashed the place at Lumi (well the few of us that were there sadly).

The entire set is DB productions only, but the 00.db album is completed!

Only just wrapping the ears round these. Legato 22 is a great banger
