DREAMMAN – CHILLOUT MOMENTS (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)
February 20th, 2013
DreamMan is no stranger to Bonzai, his debut came back in 2008 with a superb collaboration with York on “Moonrise On The Beach” which saw huge support around the world. Other releases would follow on Nemesis, Camouflage, Green Martian, Music Worx, B-Club Grooves and many more quality labels. This release is a mini compilation of various tracks showing off the diversity of his talent.
First up is something a little different for Elemental, “Solar Breeze” is a super smooth laid back balearic groove. Straight up four to the floor uplifting vibe, cool basses and a sweet melody provide the backdrop to a lazy afternoon in the sun.
DreamMan’s own Chillout Reconstruction Mix is the first sign of the diverse talent, taking the original and creating a wonderful chilled down vibe. The melodies here captivate the soul and takes your mind far away, pure bliss.
Vokoss Ambient Trance Symphony delves deeper into chillout in a cacophony of synth melodies and lush pads, absolute relaxing is the result of having this awesome sound enter your mind.
Next up is “Close To You”, again we are treated to some well crafted melodies and warm piano sounds. Huge synth pads sweep by with a slow steady drum section keeping rhythm, wonderful stuff.
The next three tracks are from Vokoss, starting off with the “Cold Sun”. Totally blissed out sums up this tune perfectly, the big focus here are the supercharged trancey synths that create a beautiful sense of euphoria.
“Inspiration” is a masterclass in melodic sequences, a myriad of sounds combine to thrash out amazing ear candy that invades your senses, hairs on the back of your neck will never be able to settle while listening to this.
Now we have “Time Is Running Out”, fading in from silence are lush pads and well arranged sounds ranging from the pianos to the gated synths to awesome FX work. Perfect intro material for any big uplifting trance set!
Vokoss provides us with his chill out remix of DJ Sakin’s “Lost World”, a nice laidback approach to a cool trance tune.
“Lounge and Wait” is a very subtle track with soft sounds and FX, perfect music for lounging and waiting, enjoy!
