Richard Durand & Cynthia Hall Reveal Dreamy ‘Shield Of Faith’
Richard Durand & Cynthia Hall - Shield Of Faith (Original Mix) [RNM]

Richard Durand has firmly established himself at the top of the tree when it comes to solid, uplifting trance, not least due to his efforts at the helm of the long-running In Search Of Sunrise series. But legendary compilation series aside, the Dutch producer is also a purveyor of some stunning solo productions, as his latest release Shield Of Faith demonstrates.

Backed by vocals from Canadian singer-songwriter Cynthia Hall, Shield Of Faith is one of those rare trance records that sounds like it’s been written by a songwriter rather than someone just looking for big riffs. Cynthia’s dreamy vocals, combined with a solid bassline and driving percussion, provide something of a chilled build to the track, but the big staccato synths are uplifting trance personified, with a drop that gives us a taste of what Durand is all about.

Shield Of Faith is out now as the debut release on Raz Nitzan’s RNM label.
