Finally, the track I first heard Arnej drop months ago has released! Fantomah by Bart Claessen has become a bit of a viral track in the techier trance DJ world, with such DJs as Markus Schulz, Ferry Corsten, and W&W dropping it frequently as an energy-builder in their sets. It’s pretty obvious why: a huge synth breakdown leads into a completely unexpected drop full of rattling drums and rising pitches–perfect for those 3am smasher moments.
Unsurprisingly, Scot Project took a liking to the enveloping sounds of Claessen, and late last year decided to remix Claessen original Hartseer into a quirky, syncopated bomb, full of ominous female vocals and even breaks rhythms. The remix stands as both a testament to Claessen’s musicality and the somewhat unsung genre expansion that Scot Project provides to the realm of trance.
