Mixmag wasn’t kidding when they called Taylor & Close “the new standout name in trance.” We first caught wind of the duo when they released their breakout remake of the trance classic Cafe del Mar. Now, the young Welshmen have returned with freshly minted originals that are festival ready.
When Sander van Doorn dropped Taylor & Close’s new release Come With Us at Armin van Buuren’s ASOT500 party at Ultra in Miami, he was sending a strong message to the crowd that he wasn’t going to hold back. Similar to the Cafe del Mar remake, Come With Us employs grand sweeping scales full of buzzing electro synths, making it one of the more energetic trance tracks to come out this year. Colour to Colour is a little more cheery than the former, but don’t be fooled; the track’s beautiful tech beat makes this one a valuable live gem as well.
