Having worked up quite an appetite for dark trance, Markus Schulz’s label Coldharbour RED is really delivering my fix. Austria’s David Barnes is best known for his tracks with Daniel Heatcliff, including a banging remix of Dakota’s Johnny The Fox. Steadily climbing since their first real big step onto the scene with Pyjamaparty, David Barnes has recently developed some remarkable productions.
Back this year with another monster tune, David Barnes’ latest hit Noodler wields a sick distorted guitar riff sure to mesmerize the dancefloor. Also on the dusky release includes Charlie The Fisher, a grim track that runs at 126bpm, really slow for progressive trance tune (usually the lowest is 128). Built on a catchy beat, this production unveils a stunning melancholic melody during its 3:02 breakdown right before it stabs you with techy, almost industrial sounds.
