Fresh from the last outing on Bonzai Progressive with “Time-X”, Nancy joins forces with Laurent Verronez and his Velvet Girl guise to bring a stunning slice of prog house-trance to the Green Martian imprint. Both these artists have an impressive back catalogue and it is this experience and professionalism that leads to tracks like this gracing our ears.
“In Between” has a classic progressive flavour from the start, building on this to a fully charged prog monster with house and a bit of trance in mind. Superb hypnotic strings are prominent throughout and a heavy chorded piano stab dominate along with a catchy bassline. Lots of melodies play in and out and this track is in complete harmony.
“Lovin Saint-Germain” is a more housey affair, very disco feel on the intro with the cowbell percussion, this soon leads into that house vibe with a prog groove. Building on we are treated to one awesome musical journey that has everything from funky bass to an almost downtempo feeling, beautiful string and pad arrangements feature heavily with a guitar making an appearance now and again. The break is just wonderful and the build up takes us back into a real feel good vibe that you just want to go on forever and ever.
