Strap into your seatbelts, crank up the volume, and prepare for Tristan Garner’s tribal banger Raven. Released on his own imprint Xtra Life, this monster track doesn’t just deal out raw destruction–it is raw destruction! I can barely hold back the the kind headbanging it induces. It came out earlier this month with a dark music video preview featuring scenes from the anime Redline (see below). Personally I’m hoping he continues it as an original series similar to Interstella 5555 by Daft Punk.
Paris-based Tristan Garner is quite a favorite of ours at LessThan3 and even recently won a spot in our Top 15 House Tracks of 2011 chart for Bounce with Gregori Klosman. Big room progressive house, or trouse as many are calling it, is Tristan’s specialty and earlier this year he really impressed Armin van Buuren with his remix of Feels So Good starring Nadia Ali. Recently he was invited by another trance legend, Tiësto, to resurrect his classic anthem Traffic. He did an amazing job retaining its dark energy–I can tell already that it won’t be long before Tristan’s headlining massive festivals. Finally with one more epic mainstage hit to review, Overdrive reaches soaring heights before dropping back into hard electro basslines.
