Italian producer Fabio XB is back, and he’s shortened his name. Now just known as “XB,” he’s teamed up with fellow countryman Yves De Lacroix for his latest release, which also features some stunning vocals courtesy of British talent Emma Lock.
Lost In Love is a pleasing mix of driving progressive trance with a healthy dose of uplifting thrown in for good measure. It’s a style which is hard to pull off, with some dark and moody bass, simple percussion and Emma’s dreamy, breathy vocal providing a steady build. The big and spacey pianos in the break give way to some enormous synth riffs and a full-on trance drop. As a result, Lost In Love has “trance classic” written all over it–there’s just something about the vocal and the riff that suggests it deserves to be a major hit. On the flip side is a remix from Egyptian talent Hazem Bultagui which offers a slightly more chilled and techy take on the original, without losing any of the charm.
