A few years ago, Mike Foyle decided to have a little head-to-head mashup war with Signalrunners, and out popped Love Theme Dusk, which has what is possibly one of the most beautiful piano lines I have heard in a trance track.
Enter swedish producer Jezper Söderlund, aka Airbase, who, under his Parc moniker, decided to tech trance the track up a bit, and added some very interesting rhythms – rhythms that you don’t hear very often in today’s trance, and this track is five years old. Yep, you read that right. The job he does of isolating the piano line at 3:12 over an almost tribal beat gives me goosebumps every time I hear it.
Airbase has definitely floated just below the mainstream for a while now, but other trance producers should be drawing from his innovations – it could make for a genre that would be even more interesting than it already is. Check out his remix of Love Theme Dusk, released on Armind, below.
